1) Yes! ENFP and proud!
2) Spiritual yes! I struggle with 'religious' because I am anarchist in this way -- I am strongly suspicious of organized religion and think religious INSTITUTIONS are inherently flawed and become corrupt, thereby corrupting followers and the actual teachings and guidance of God. There is a fine line between spirituality and religion which in itself is not a problem. However, I think too often people confuse their spirituality and connections to god/a higher power, the universe, other people with adherence to man-made dogma and conformity to a group. People end up worshipping the church and forget about worshipping god or listenign to themselves.
The foul things that church leadership are allowed to do and get away with and the apathy of followers because of this man-made institution -- I abhor it. God/the universe and your basic morality do not want you to violate children, violate parishoners, violate other humans. This is not a sweeping statement applied equally to all types of organized religion...but yes I am wary. On the flip side I think religion can be a powerfully transformative force for better in society -- for the good -- but generally this is also when 'the church' is more of a movement than an institution (did you see how the Vatican is trying to curb activist Latin American churches?)
3) I'm open-minded. I believe there are things that are currently unexplaineable. Perhaps science will one day be able to explain it. Perhaps not. I'm an open-minded skeptic. I think true skeptics are kinda stick in the muds. Basically, I'm not a total sucker. Also, I tried to make myself psychic when I was a kid and would lament that I could not see ghosts. Now I AM SO GLAD I have ABSOLUTELY NO paranormal gifts. I like my sanity.
4) It's my nutty ENFPness. I have always felt a piece of a bigger picture or puzzle. I have always felt connected to the universe, to a higher power, to a sense of karmic morality that nudges me very strongly. I feel the energy of other people and the world. I feel I have a purpose (though specifically I'm not sure what yet...) This is also sometimes why I get very tired and need to disengage for a while (textbook ENFP I guess...?)
I don't understand apathetic people. I have never been a disaffected teenager. Life is awesome! We have a purpose! I don't need anything proven scientifically or mathematically to believe it. I guess I have that 'anything is possible' mentality. My spirituality is very much tied into my sense of purpose in the world and my belief in compassion and justice. I think we're supposed to right wrongs and overcome human shortcoming and failings and evil deeds and ignorance and apathy and transcend the baseness and pitfalls of our existence. And I think God actually wants us live with joy and love and help others live with joy and love. God doesn't have 'old-fashioned rules' for us, we're supposed to have good clean fun. I also feel that more than a theory or a big white man in the sky, god/a higher power breathes and is a part of this universe and can be channeled and actualized and speak through and to all of us.
Does this sound corny?
Are you gonna make me paranoid and make me erase this tomorrow?? Because I'm getting tired of typing all this stuff just to have to erase it!!
