    No. God could not have created the other 15 types if they where in existence. That does not add up. Even if the typing is accurate, they are probably metaphores. The God and the snake.

    No, I was being deadly serious. the snake was literally an ENTP and God was literally an ESFJ, and all of this literally happened, and if you disagree you go to hell.

    And God can do anything. He apparently created man in his image didn't he, so how could he not have an MBTI type if man did have one?

    Or was (he's dead now) He all 16 types?

    And maybe Lucifer is just God's shadow functions? This is fun!

There is a prevailing assumption that most INTPs are atheists or agnostics, but the concept of God does fit in with the INTP's desire to discover the "big picture" in his or her search for ultimate truth.

    Could classical theologians like Anselm and Aquinas, who spent their lives pondering the nature of The Supreme Being, have been INTPs?
    Spinoza and Descartes were INTPs who spent a lot of time writing about why a god must exist but spinoza however also wrote against organised religion. Spinoza's god was essentially what we consider nature. Aquinas might have been INTP his ideas on god are similar to Aristotle(unmoved mover in physics), for aquinas physical things do not create themselves so the universe must have been created...... doubt anselm was intp

    I don't think it's exclusively INTP or Ti either, although one can perhaps define a typical Ti-style approach.

    I can say for me that "God" is an itch I cannot seem to scratch enough to satisfy. To me, I can't avoid thinking about it because it is relevant to the fabric of truth in the universe... but there are just ambiguities there into which no light seems able to shine... so the itch continues no matter how I try to scratch it. My mind keeps wanting to "figure it out" but can't, and yet I keep trying.

    God was power. It was like staring into the heart of the Force.

    figuring out god and afterlife wasnt all that hard, it only becomes impossible if you believe in god.

    psychology is way better subject of analysis

    I find complex systems to be interesting. Economies, governments, things like that. I'm not particularly interested in chasing questions without answers.

    I am INTP and I do not believe in God, not in the Christian sense. I have been very keen on exploring spirituality since I was little, basically just in the sense of who we are and our connection to everything. I do tend to put more weight in science, but I have a distinct spiritual bent as well.

    we're both the same type as the devil! :3 wonder if he's a 5 too... he'd have to be extremely sociopathic but still XD

    I'm ENTP and I speculate more on this than anyone I know... but perhaps I'm the only one that vocalizes it.
