    Default God

    This is not the real thing, necessarily. Sure God is more than a personality type, but let's not disclude it from argument all too easily. Try to build a convincing argument as to why God is the type you picked. Explain your point through references like the Bible or other general teachings.

    I'll start it off by suggesting that he's an Alpha. Most everything I know about him suggests "judicious" and "merry."

    This has been discussed before, and there are two main schools of thought: One is that god is LII, the other is that god is ILI. You can read the entire thread here.

    Personally I think that a being that supposedly created existence with nothing to base their ideas off of would be rather -ish, and that the frequent defining of god through the use of aphorisms may point at a dynamic nature, probably , so I am all for ILI. I think an valuing type would have created multiple universes and realities to test and play with all sorts of unimaginable things, but I have never heard an account of god doing this. What points to an Ip temperament is many accounts of god being unhappy with this reality and flooding the earth - instead of bothering to go through the appropriate paperwork, peer review and waiting period required to build another reality, god basically just said 'fuck it' and decided to see how this one panned out instead, probably thinking that if it was watered, it might grow into something better, as if Earth was a plant or something.

    God is LSI. Laying down all those strict rules, jealous, demanding unwavering faith...
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    That's the current thought about the universe. Well, the thought of science people who are generali hmmm.

    btw I think ILI too. Although I would have personally not build people as dumb as they are now. But then again, I am smarter than god.

    Pick a book in the Bible or look across different authors and sources for the materials, and you will get quite different pictures. The most consistent image in the collage, however, is that of an LSI. YHWH is one who establishes the created order of the cosmos, and despite being slow to anger, and abounding in patience and steadfast love, God is comfortable at exercising displays of force as appropriate (no matter how excessive they may appear to be). Love is expressed as respectful devotion to this cosmic order present in creation, God's covenants, and the Torah. YHWH also acts as the righteous judge. Despite an insistence that there is a difference between OT and NT God, the depiction is actually fairly consistent when you look at what is being expressed. This assessment is based upon a literary analysis of God the character, and not on personal feelings or theology, or any personal religious experience or the lackthereof.

    I've read that, according to some psychological theory, we ascribe to God the same personality traits our father has.
    ILE "Searcher"
    Socionics: ENTp
    DCNH: Dominant --> perhaps Normalizing
    Enneagram: 7w6 "Enthusiast"
    MBTI: ENTJ "Field Marshall" or ENTP "Inventor"
    Astrological sign: Aquarius

    LOL .. I used to think that too, but now i believe they are at least mirror LSI-SLE if not identical. Remember the winner writes the rules and they're the ones the rest of us live by etc. The reason that the devil had made himself so different is his need to carve out an identity for himself independent from that of God ....... "better to reign i hell than to serve in heaven"

    Now Jesus INFJ could well be a conflictor in terms of expressed principles and actions.

    I assume the stereotypical God that most people picture in their minds is probably EII, while the Satan most people picture is more than likely SLE. What shit.

    OK .... God is ESTJ .... Dual to Jesus INFJ and relations of Quasi identity (major misunderstanding) withe the devil ESTP.

    If God and Jesus are part of one and the same thing they must be duals.

    Is there a manual of how to create a universe?

    This is important evidence to whether God can be an LSI.

The time IEI don't spend "Fe-ing" to large groups isn't really spent being some sort of Analytical powerhouse. More so, it's spent on something like artistic expression (note the tendency towards poetry and other Analytically inefficient storage medium) or manipulating smaller groups. After all, traces of a lot of Beta "revolutionary ideas" can be found (in often more coherent forms) years earlier among the thought experiements of someone like an Aristotle. I do think some Aristocrats may use some Democratic functioning though.
    Well, most of the descriptions of the Creation sound like "he imagined it and it happened." He may have needed some Ti for implementation - all the laws of the universe, etc. No Xe element seems appropriate, because there wasn't anything to be objective about before the universe began. Though, God may have obtained an Xe element in the process of creating the universe...

    A guy came to me one time, and asked me if I wanted to play Jesus in a Passion play. His wife saw me, and then told him "that's the guy that could play Jesus" . I also have a friend that calls me Jesus because I had beard one time. I guess I VI like Jesus paintings somehow, but it's big leap to say Jesus is INFj. Obviously, I know you were joking, but it's iffy to type a deity.

    Jesus in the New Testament believed he was the same as the god of the Old. They have somewhat different personalities, although still inherently ideologically violent.
