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.

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
rationalungodly group, by a long shot. Pretty accurate if you ask me.

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."Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

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.”

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!

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.
