    Religions have all kinds of hooks for all types. For instance, I've known several devout INTPs who really get into the theology of it, also their little Fe's grow three times bigger. I imagine some of them Pentecostal churches with the writhing and speaking in tongues have some unique offerings especially for the SXey people.

    Good point. Theology would be a big draw for INTPs, but speaking in tongues certainly would not. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of (male) INTPs in Medieval Europe wound up as monks or rabbinical scholars, depending on their background and social class, of course.

    Not technically, but religious feeling and devotion can be found applied to anything. Similarly, some people classify themselves as religious but don't feel any particular attachment to it in a particular form, or practice it.

    I disagree with ISFP's; perhaps there are a lot of religious ones I haven't met, but they seem to be too apathetic for it.

    I agree with the person who says that religion and spirituality would have different pulls for different types and with the person who said it is important to distinguish between the two, but there may be some who would be more likely to be attracted to it than others.

    I would say for:
    religion: SJ if they grew up in a religious environment because they tend to value convention and establishment, Fe dominant because it allows external expression of feeling and a sense of community.
    spirituality: Ni dominant because of the mysticism, Fi dominant because of the personal sense of meaning.
    Ti-Fe enjoys theory and may enjoy theory which engages Fe, so might happen to be attracted to theology.
    Edit: Se dominants seem to be attracted to it too, but I don't know why.

    I'm not sure. I feel like fe people would be more likely to force their beliefs on you same with te but I don't think they're nesercerly more religious than other types. I believe what I believe and I'm willing to share what I believe but I'm not going to sit there and convince you that mine are right yours are wrong, mostly cuz I don't know nor can prove it. if you try to do the same to me, I'll just be like um yeah ok

    I want to make a poll about people's religious/spiritual preferences but don't know what options to put on the poll...

    Any suggestions other than:

    Christianity
    Judaism
    Islam
    Buddhism
    Hinduism
    Agnostic
    Atheist
    Unitarian-Universalism
    Paganism
    Shamanism

    ...?

    My INTP atheist friend wants to be a Medieval monk when he graduates. His professors have told him to be more practical.

    SJ's(because of tradition mostly)and NFJ's(because of craving a deeper spiritual connection or whatever).

    The only thing that might make some NFP's less likely to be into religious service, is because they sometimes have a hard time with communal/organized beliefs. They want to be all individualistic and go on a personal journey. The spiritual desire is definitely there though.

    Couldn't say. I could think of arguments for or against a lot of different types. I'd be more interested to see if there is an actual relationship between them by taking a poll in a church or something.
