    I agree with this, being cop sounds like a position that would be much more natural for a Te user, probably an STJ as opposed to an NTJ (NTJs are more likely to be CIA lol)

    Jesus is a 2. Deal with it.
    imo it's interesting to think of the different roles of jesus in different enneatypes - the King, the Prophet, the protector of children, the wanderer, the reformer, the ascetic in the desert, etc. -

    however -

    it's quite an interesting point that there is an entire religion built around this guy's sacrifice of his life, for the world. that's really taking 2 self-sacrificing and then making people recognize that sacrifice to a whole other level.

    Seriously lolling at the idea of Jesus being an 8.
    I meant more along the lines of a profession where people skills and a protective nature are valuable assets. Not every cop is a "hands on the wall, all of you!" type - you need tact when dealing with assault victims or gathering information.

    Jesus is a 2. Deal with it.
    1) Jesus is a divine being, anime characters are (usually) not
    2) what we know of Jesus is from a 2,000 book that has been translated several times. we have little way of knowing what he was like in person
    3) anime is a very intimate form of entertainment. you get very close to the characters and often times get deep into their psychology.
    4) anime characters are often extremely archtypical, yet complex enough to have real personalities. if anything, they are much easier to type than real people

    I actually wish there were more SFJ cops. some of the STJ cops I've met were just way too forceful.
    PS: I have one rather humorous run in with an STJ cop a few years back, but since the subject of this thread has distastefully been diverted to me several times, I'm going to avoid another such opportunity by posting it on my blog. for those of you who are interested, feel free to stop by my blog

    How about if they are aliens or androids or ghosts?

    1: At least he was a person rather than having always been fictional.
    2: What we know of him from the book can functional like a fictional character just as well as an anime character can.

    Or it can be terribly, terribly, shallow. It depends on the work. I'm not religious myself, but maybe you should consider how it would sound to a religious audience for you to imply that people won't feel intimacy or closeness with the bible, particularly Jesus. It made me laugh a little.

    This is the best point of the four. Jesus is very complicated in the bible, probably because it puts together many different interpretations and accounts and revisions of him, thus not creating a consistent picture. But hell, if you intentionally make an idiosyncratic character you just get Dr. Gregory House and everyone thinks he's the greatest character ever and becomes one of the most popular subjects of personality typing.

    I've thought that Jesus was a 9.

    Are you all assuming Jesus existed ?

    I don't question his existence; not many historians do. I do question his divine powers though.
