    But if you're not going to be linguistically precise, this makes it more likely the debate will go off at a tangent due to misunderstanding of your intent.

    well... that is not how it is in my religion. Humans are given free will, the right to choose to commit deeds or sins. We have options and we choose which path we want to walk on. We are expected to not be perfect, but instead, try to strive for perfection(being a generous, kind, good person--basically VERY high standards very few people are able to achieve with high self-discipline), or as close as we can be.

    Personally. I'm not the most religious person, and I am far from perfect. But looking at humans, the power to hurt/ heal, learn/ corrupt, adapt/destroy , express ourself through all kinds of alternative methods(violently or peacefully, artistically or vulgarly). We are extraordinary, flaws and all; and it takes great perfection to have created such perfect, yet paradoxically imperfect creatures.

    ... this IS coming from a person that believe in God, so I completely understand if someone doesn't agree with me or my logic : )

    for that matter, there's a few on this site that fall into that category

    you should really see yourselves through the eyes of other types sometime!
    you know, this is coming from a person that ALWAYS scores INTJ.... I'd have to agree. There are A LOT of arrogant INTJ's on here..

He formed his own brand of Judaism that focused more on the otherworldly than the worldly, doing away with many Hebrew traditions in the process. And then there's how he responded to the moneychangers in the temple -- he tossed them out (bucking tradition and the established order of things) out of a sense of great moral fervor and duty.

    INTJ's have a unending quest for knowledge and a disregard for established conventions.

    Lucifer might be closer to an INTJ than god would be, because he does tell Adam and Eve to eat the Apple. The same way the Greek Prometheus who stole fire from the gods might be considered an INTJ.

    maybe EVE was an INTJ

    Old Testament - ESTJ
    New Testament - INFJ

    The OT God is too bi-polar, angry, jealous, petty, outwardly wrathful, and irrational to be INTJ. The NT God is too loving and merciful.

    I'm an ENFP, what do I care about being linguistically precise.

    In seriousness I see your point, but my logic is that we're arguing about the same person, with the same traits, ergo we must be arguing the same shit regardless of whether he's a prophet, the Son of God, or a fictional character. He was the same man and had the same type in either case. Ergo, to me it becomes irrelevant in what capacity we're carrying out the debate.
