    Note: the interesting thing about this study is that the J types are mostly clustered at the top and the P types at the bottom. The authors suggest that this could have something to do with conditionability.


    for the keirseyans this breaks down into:

    SJ 80,8

    NF 78,1

    NT 71,9

    Interesting, although I thought that the J/P and F/T divide would both be significant (as they are in the FFM)... although I guess this is a narrow scope, so that might be why.

    And yup, ungodly one right here

    (I'm going to remember this the next time someone says NT = free thinker, however.)

    I have since I was a small child a very strong faith in a high power, taught to me under the guise of Jesus Christ. The true message of free-will has always been undeniably powerful to me. I can't imagine not having the comfort of that.

    Haha, ISTPs are the most rational ungodly group, by a long shot. Pretty accurate if you ask me.

    It does seem accurate -- Ti analyzes everything, but INTPs see possibilities, while ISTPs demand more concrete evidence of things.

    It's just interesting, though, that Ti seems the least likely function to lead to Christianity. Ti determines the nature of things. It looks at what is, senses its nature, defines the pieces. It seems that God is least obvious when one examines the nature of evidence, and more and more likely the more one looks at other sorts of criteria.

    Sillies. Jesus just likes INFJs the best so we get more help.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    God first creates the TP and then sends the TP to hell for being a TP.
    Is he a nut or what?


    Not that I want to go to heaven. All those ESTJs there, playing harp.
    I do not like the ESTJs.
    I do not like the harps.

    No, they will not be playing harp....they will be directing who/how/when/where and why the harp will be played....

    I find this amusing... coming from a Ti, which didn't offer a naturalistic explanation

    What I do find very interesting is how dramatic the ISTP drop is - I have to ask what the break down the types was in the overall sample. The drop between 15->16th is greater than 1->5... or put another way from 5->15! that is statistically out of the norm by a fair margin and would want to know if it came from a low amount of ISTPs (statistically, it should be ~28... it's not such a large number that skew couldn't happen if the group was even smaller, due to self-selection - speaking from my own life*, ISTPs aren't all that represented in higher education)

    *edit - weren't psychology students, different report!

    So there is even less reason to go to heaven.

    Who..how..when..where..
    Reminds me of those Texan policemen I have known.
    Leisurely types. They walk in a sort of gangly, funny way.
    They talk all the time, a clownish expression on their face, a semismile lingering on their lips, in a language they call English.

    One cannot detect a single word of reason among all the gibberish.
    And they say Te is about thinking.
