Which MBTI type is Jesus?
Jesus based his life on idealism in the world based on his set of morals that were seem as a step ahead of his time. He wanted to teach these morals to others, and he was regarded as compassionate, concerned with the people, making him strong in the Fe department. He was also a strong judging type, having a strong set of principles he encouraged everyone to follow and seeing justice as important- but doing so in a way that isn’t too cold hearted (as he isn’t a Te type!)
Jesus could be argued as an extrovert or introvert. I believe he is an introvert type for several reasons:
1) He had a very selective group of friends- 12 disciples of his many followers. This shows how we preferred to have a select group of friends, as many introverts do, rather than a larger group of friends. He did, however, meet many new people along the way, but this is likely indicative of a charismatic INFJ looking to spread his message rather than a chatty one!
2) He is highly focused and serious in his goals. He is a visionary type that is seeking to fullfil these goals with little time for other external activities that does not help him spread the word of the God
3) The majority of sources indicate that he is an introvert type to support me in this decision
In conclusion, this makes him an introvert, intuitive, feeling, judging type. He uses his Ni to create many of the values and principles that he envisions will be suitable for humans whilst using his Fe to have concern for the people whilst making these decisions.
This is also the same MBTI type as Adolf Hitler. I have narrowed down the main reason why Jesus and Hitler have the same MBTI type:
INFJ’s see a vision that they think would be able to work in the world, and are great at influencing the people that it is in their interest to achieve this vision. Hence, both Jesus and Hitler were able to share this with their people.
Both types had a personal moral compass that guided their visions. However, almost everyone would argue that Jesus’ had a far better moral compass than Hitler. Hence, although they operate the same way, they are completely different. This is an excellent example of how two types can be what society defines as good or bad!
Do you believe Jesus is an ENFJ as many others do, or do you agree he is an INFJ? Why?
