    Based on the second assumption God is impossible to type, because we have not the slightest idea what he's like (for all we know he could be a giant sea otter). Further, Lex specified that we're typing the Judeo-Christian God, which is God as depicted in the Bible.

    I don't see much difference between the two.

    Explain, please.

    self esteem is self worth based on actual realistic assesment

    pride is an unreasonable feeling of excessive self worth

    Pride is being proud of something tangible that you have actually achieved or sustained or over come or created or even destroyed. I am sure you get my point.

    It's not the same as arrogance or false bravado, which is usually a sign of a very insecure and or delusional person. This equates to false pride, it's a mask.

    Know what I am saying?

    I understand the difference between pride and arrogance. My question was directed at the relationship between self-esteem and pride. Surely, pride is a form of self-esteem, but self-esteem does not have to be pride.

    None of this is advancing the topic of the thread, though...

    No.. high self esteem would be a by product of genuine pride based on tangible achievement.

    And you are indeed correct that we are not advancing the subject of this thread.

    However the poll and most of the responses suggest the topic is moot.
    The answer to your question could be ascertained to be, No.. God is not a perfect INTJ .

    Sure. Heartless, little attention to detail, writes crappy dialogue (George Lucas, James Cameron, Ayn Rand), adopts a "sink or swim, motherfuckers" attitude towards all his creations, sadistic when the whim strikes him (Today is Tidal Wave Tuesday!), ignores repeated pleas for help, uses lots of Extroverted Thinking (Gravity is in effect. Whether you like it, or not.) Has warped sense of humor (I just made a platypus! It has a bill, it lays eggs, but it's a MAMMAL!)...yeah, perfect INTJ...
