3) He's much, much older than you. Accordingly, his weaker functions are much more developed. Including feeling. Because he is not a feeling type, he can use his feeling to advance the goals of his thinking. Now yes, I know you think that's evil, but he's come to a point where he can use it without feeling that way. These points happen about midlife crisis time, which is inline with his own spiritual awakening at 40. How many ESTPs Bush's age do you know who aren't religious? How many over 40? Types evolve as we get older, because the ways our brains function change.
First off, let me say that my dad is 50 years old, and ESTp just like me. He's an athiest. I have 2 neighbors that are also SLE and over 40 (1 male and one female), and neither of them associate themselves with any kind of religion or spirituality. And yeah, I agree that functions develop over time, but not to the extent that
would completely take over and cause someone to go overboard on the religion.
