    Here's a question. Which type is most likely to argue with the religious Christians and get told they are going to Hell?

    I got told I was just this morning. He said he'd pray for me. Bah. If being an atheist, not based on actions, results in going to Hell, then god would be psychotic (thus being a bad guy to pray to), and Socrates would also be in purgatory, which would be much better than dealing with the harp dictator ESTJs. ^.^
    I recommend against indulging the argumentative tendencies of someone who believes the entire bible word for word (complete with the sucky translations). It's kind of like walking into a brick wall. It's rather annoying and doesn't get you anywhere.

    I tend to get vehemently hated on/attacked by, dogmatic Christians....oh well.

    Yup, I would say 75-80 % of all the people who have publicly showed their contempt for me, (which mind you, has been a consistently low figure my entire life), just so happened to have been, by their own definition, "Christians".

    I find this humorously ironic.

    Depending on the circumstances, that might not be that high of a percentage (if you live in the US, for instance, which has is ~78% Christian).

    Yes, but the majority are not practicing. Church attendance in the US is quite low. Most people just observe the major Christian holidays, such as Xmas and Easter.

    Is this for serious?

    Are those percentages in the OP or...

    I can't think of what else they might be.

    I'm embarrassed to be ENTP if that's the case though. Well... maybe I should just be embarrassed to... wait a second; what's the use in finding the correlation?

    Yeah. You wonder how many of those people would switch from Christianity if it weren't for the matter of convenience. They don't seem to be very dedicated to the church establishments.

    A lot of cultural and religious traditions are intertwined, which complicates matters too... My relatives who have converted to Christianity still practice traditional ancestor worhip, etc.

    But as Substitute said, there's a difference between being a Bible thumper and being a believer in the ideas of Christ, which are quite valid from a humanistic and even logical standpoint.

    Many of the Christians I know don't force their beliefs upon other people, and they are rather spiritual in a good way -- they aren't dogmatic. They are followers of Jesus in that they agree with his ideals, such as "love thy neighbor as you love thyself."

    And most of the SJs I've seen are not really religious and not avid churchgoers. They're just more into the social traditions that just so happen to be established around religion.

    Hey I wonder what the ratio would be for those types prone to committing necrophilia.

    Or who drive bulldozers. That would be an interesting statistic.
