    Personality Types: You and Biblical Figures

    http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

    This is a 72-question personality type indicator. When you press "Score It!" a new page will load and it'll show you a four letter combination like ISTJ or ENFP. Read it up on WikiPedia or go to http://www.typelogic.com/[letter combination].html and see how accurate it is.

    On the TypeLogic site, it also lists famous people of your type and for several of them it includes Biblical figures. For instance, the disciple Thomas was an ISTJ like myself. King David on the other hand was ENFJ. Peter was ESTJ and Mary, mother of Jesus, was INFP.

    Oddly enough, no one has been able to really classify Jesus' personality type. From what I've read, several claim he's a perfect balance of all 16 types. Which could be true, but personally I think he had a dominant type, like perhaps ENFJ (although I read elsewhere that someone felt he's INFP.)

    I will let you all decide if it is accurate or not...

    Qualitative analysis of your type formula

    You are:
    moderately expressed extravert
    distinctively expressed intuitive personality
    slightly expressed thinking personality
    slightly expressed judging personality



    ENTJs are decisive. They see what needs to be done, and frequently assign roles to their fellows. Few other types can equal their ability to remain resolute in conflict, sending the valiant (and often leading the charge) into the mouth of hell. When challenged, the ENTJ may by reflex become argumentative. Alternatively (s)he may unleash an icy gaze that serves notice: the ENTJ is not one to be trifled with.

    Functional Analysis

    Extraverted Thinking
    "Unequivocating" expresses the resoluteness of the ENTJ's dominant function. Clarity of convictions endows these Thinkers with a knack for debate, or wanting knack, a penchant for argument. The light and heat generated by Thinking at the helm can be impressive; perhaps even overwhelming. Experience teaches many ENTJs that restraint may often be the better part of valor, lest one find oneself victorious but alone.

    Introverted iNtuition
    The auxiliary function explores the blueprints of archetypal patterns and equips Thinking with a fresh, dynamic sense of how things work. Improvising on the fly is something many ENTJs do very well. As Thinking's subordinate, insights are of value only insofar as they further the Right, True Cause celebre. [n.b.: ENTJs are capable of living on a higher plane, if you will, and learning to value individuals even above their principles. The above dynamic suggests less individuation.]

    Extraverted Sensing
    Sensing reaches out to embrace that which physically touches it. ENTJs have an awareness of the real; of that which exists. By stilling the engines of Thinking and iNtuition, this type may experience the Here and Now, and know things not dreamt of nor even postulated in iNtuition's philosophy. Sensing's minor role, however, puts it at risk for distortion or extreme weakness beneath the hustle and bustle of the giants N and T.

    Introverted Feeling
    Feeling is romantic, as the ethereal as the inner world from whence it doth emerge. When it be awake, feeling evokes great passion that knows not nuance of proportion nor context. Perhaps these lesser functions inspire glorious recreational quests in worlds that never were, or may only ever be in fantasy. When overdone or taken too seriously, Fi turned outward often becomes maudlin or melodramatic. Feeling in this type appears most authentic when implied or expressed covertly in a firm handshake, accepting demeanor, or act of sacrifice thinly covered by excuses of lack of any personal interest in the relinquished item.

    I'm INTJ...

    I'm apparently like C.S. Lewis. No biblical character, unfortunately.

    I always get INTJ when I take these tests too. It's nice to be a Mastermind.
    We long to be known and we fear it like nothing else.
    Most people live with subtle dread that one day,
    they will be discovered for who they really are,
    and the world will be appalled.

    I don't know much about these things that want to measure and count these guys...or me for that fact.

    All I do know is that many of the stories and characters in the Bible are guys that I can readily identify with...

    Some are good guys...and some ain't. I wish it was more good guys than bad...but I know better.

    I do understand the feelings and emotions and actions that many of them took...and what God did about them.

    God is his own individual...has his own mind about things...and measuring the unmeasurable...well...that doesn't sound like a good idea.

    Yep, I knew that Simon Peter and I had a lot in common, both of us are ESTJ's. I knew exactly how he felt when he lopped off that ear in the garden.

    hmmm... I sort of self-identify with the Biblical Ahimelech, who strikes me as a kind of WWJD sort of fellow.

    Well it seems that I'm INFJ.

    My score was:
    Introverted Intuitive Feeling Judging
    22 62 50 44

    No biblical characters, but it seems I'm similar to Immanual Kant, William Shakespeare, Ludwig Beethoven, Pearl Buck, Arthur C. Clark

    My best friends say I'm very much like the Apostle Paul.

    This is interesting. In real life I can hardly find someone who is an INTJ or INTP. But it seems as though on the Internet that's where they all are. For that matter, it looks like it's where all the Introverts hang out. And the occasional Extravert.

    I am ISFP.


    • very expressed introvert
    • distinctively expressed sensing personality
    • moderately expressed feeling personality
    • slightly expressed perceiving personality

    Hm.. Didn't see any Biblical characters on my list. I did see Marilyn Monroe, Donald Trump and Britney Spears! O_o

    Speak the truth in love. The truth without love is brutality.

    An apology is the best way to have the last word!
