I would like to know what qualifies you to make the generalization quoted below. And what cognitive function that you think belief in a deity is associated with? Are you aware of what Carl Jung says about intuition-thinking influencing one's belief in God? That intuition is discerning through unconscious processes. The individual goes beyond facts, feelings, and ideas in search of the essence of reality. In fact, in an interview with Good Housekeeping, Jung mentions that intuition is God; it's the voice inside of our head that tells us what to do and what not to do. Through intuition, Jung said he does not take God's existence on belief; rather, he KNOWS that God exists.

    That appears to be a mere editorial error. Such an egregiously mistaken type-call would throw the entire site out of bounds of credibility.

    Yeah, Eco, what's up with that. perhaps you should explain in the thread, because i didnt understand the whole 'server glicth' explanation when we talked on the phone.

    But actually,, we find him quite hard to type. The only thing we agree on is that he is a Te/Fi user. Maybe we should do a page for people whom we can't type. put him next to Julian Assange.

    Hope you had a good new year's.

    I would like to know what qualifies you to make the generalization [about religiousity] quoted below. And what cognitive function that you think belief in a deity is associated with?
    It has nothing to do with cognitive functions directly. Yes, I have read almost everything Jung said about his own system. I am not sure that Jung should be taken as someone who has exclusive insight into the system. Rather, perhaps more as a groundbreaker. For example, in one place he said that he thought that one's dominant function would have the same orientation as oneself, and then the three others would be oppositely directed. So for ENTP, the order would be Ne, Ti, Fi, Si. I certainly dont belive that, and to me, it just shows that Jung was finding out new stuff, and that he didnt have all the answers.

    Here is the source you asked for:

    The following scores represent a positive attitude toward Christianity (based on responses to statements such as "I know Jesus helps me."):

    1. INFJ - 87.3
    2. ESTJ - 85.6
    3. ISFJ - 82.0
    4. ESFJ - 80.7
    5. INFP - 77.9
    6. INTJ - 75.3
    7. ISTJ - 75.0
    8. ENFJ - 74.8
    9. ISFP - 73.3
    10. ENTJ - 72.9
    11. ESFP - 72.8
    12. ENFP - 72.3
    13. ESTP - 72.0
    14. INTP - 69.9
    15. ENTP - 69.4
    16. ISTP - 59.3

    Here's how it happened:

    - I moved Carrey from ENTJ to ENFP and saved the file locally, awaiting your approval before I was going to upload the change.

    - I got your response that you were in fact not convinced that he was an ENFP and wanted him to stay put. Therefore I undid the change in my local version of the file.

    - My computer crashed, and apparently the last time I had saved the file was at the point where Jim Carrey was placed both places.

    - Unaware of the problem, the next time I made a change to the index file, I uploaded the error as well.



    But actually,, we find him quite hard to type.
    +1!

    For the record, I agree with the call of Fi and Te user - and while his way of sabotaging the host in his Actor's Studio interview is reminiscent of Robin Williams, I concede that (unlike when watching Robin Williams) I can identify no use of Ne when watching Carrey's interviews (nor when studying his comedy). He exhibits no situation-dependent, pattern-seeing wit; it's all stock humor. I also think he's extroverted and intuitive, and by process of elimination that means ENTJ, but I'm not at all happy with the typing which is why I made my concerted effort to convert him to something (anything!) else in the first place.

    Phew! I was going to say that if Carrey is an ENTJ then he sure is a master of disguise!

    The late, great Christopher Reeve has been typed as ISFP.

    His characters give me that impression, too.
