    ah ok. I agree, but i was reading some other threads, and I notice that if an NT says they're christian someone always goes "are you sure you're an NT?"
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I think that Ns are often not religious at all, but Ns who are religious can often be more passionate and certain about their religious belief than any SJ ever thought of being.

    Sensors may be more likely to be religious, but I think a lot of that might be more due to not questioning their assumptions or being that interested in focusing on anything that isn't concrete. The idea of god is not concrete, so they usually just accept it without really wanting to focus on it... but really, they still mostly live their lives in the concrete world. They might apply a lot of religious rules, and follow a lot of ceremonies, but this is more based on tradition than religion.

    I mean, think about it... an N who really believes god exists, is thinking about the idea of god all the time, and how the concepts in the world around them relate to their concept of god. An S who believes in god... is really not focused on the idea of god itself, but on the physical world.

    I always read that minister is one of the careers for ENFJ's, and I know several ministers that are that type. I want to inquire into their conceptions of God, now.

    Why? Just because some NFs aren't religious doesn't mean there aren't great ENFJ ministers.

    An ENFJ who actually was religious probably would make a spectacular pastor because of their Fe dominance helping them to relate to and guide others, and their Ni ability to analyze that behavior and provide a philosophical vision.

    ENFJs do make great pastors...if they are religious.

    Because of their Fe/Ni strengths, they can also make great cult leaders and socialist dictators.

    I'm religious enough that I nearly beat up a guy in church.. he was squeezing his wife's arm abusively, tell her and his daughter "You better sing."

    Ss don't question things?

    don't overgeneralize... I've never had a problem questioning ANYTHING... to the point where I'm stuck as merely an agnostic as far as religion goes despite being raised by a church going family

    my mom's an SJ and she's basically a spiritual deist. she was raised in a loosely catholic household (believe in god but not every picky rule, go to church sometimes). she's done personal reflective spiritual inquiry. her beliefs are certainly not prevalent where we live - conservative christianity is.

    i notice that NFJs are more regularly religious than NFPs.

    Yeah, I'm agnostic as well.

    You know, you're difficult... I can't come up with anything I do that you don't do. You seem to do everything I do, and more.

    I have to admit, usually when I'm talking about Sensors, I'm talking about ISJs. I'm not usually thinking about STPs.
