    Nope.

    Religion should be about a relationship with a spiritual being/energy and through that, feeling connected to other living beings.

    That in turn increases happiness and inspires caring, community and a sense of peace, trust and belonging. It gives meaning.

    Typology is at best a tool to facillitate understanding which can help people to connect.

    It would be like confusing the scalpel with the surgeon.

    Given that this is a typology forum, you may get biased result, I think.

    I don't think it is a religion, even at it worse. In that eventuality, it's just a tool for confirming pre-existing bigotries.

    No, though it must be pointed out different typology theories reflect the philosophical baises of their authors and most people don't seem to be aware of it.

    One can religiously adhere to Typology as much as they can to anything else. It still isn't a religion by any definition I can find or know of.

    Our real name is Mbti Central but it. was changed to Typology Central for business reasons.

    In fact Typology is the study of Types, any kind of types.

    So once again we have been deceived, once for 70 years over Jung's diary, and twice over the very name of our site.
