I read on this site that ENTJs are one of the least likely types to believe in God. I am a Christian and curious how many other ENTJs are out there who are also religious and find this a weird statistic.

Interesting... I do believe in God.

It just says they are the least likely group. That doesn't mean you're out of the running for quintessential ENTJ if you believe in a higher power. Just makes you that much more unique since ENTJs are 3% of the population. -agnostic ENTJ

In the Bible, the great leader and missionary Paul was an ENTJ. Before God reached him, this highly learned man was an arrogant, self righteous murderer and persecutor of Christians. With his accepting the Creator of the Universe, the Lord God Jesus, he became the most industrious and humble and dedicated and intelligent worker for God. He is still a most important teacher in his God the Holy Spirit led written books of the New Testament. God created leaders like you so that His work on earth gets finished, and He can take us to our heavenly home sooner. Blessings, dear one. 'If you search for Me, you will find Me." www.iiw.org I found a great overview of the Bible using archeology and history and historical cultures to explain what I was/am learning. Discover Bible Lessons I highly recommend.

Don't call yourself a NT if you strongly believe in your religion. ENTJs are the generals and CEOs of the population. Many people want to be them. That's why many people mistype themselves. If you see yourself as a god-driven leader you are more likely to be an ENFJ or ENFP.

I find NTs terribly cold humans. It is like they are missing something- a glue that adheres to human idealism

I belive in higher power but not in any of religions ( I think they were made to keep people under control)

Yeah, I think the logic/thinking side of the ENTJ personality makes you question the details of any religious. To be honest, most of the stories are really intense... and somewhat unbelievable. I mean that with the most respect.
But what I do want to know, is how can anyone know the personality type of someone that's been dead for thousands of years...?

You can determine his personality from the letters he wrote. You can similarly do this for someone who lives thousands of kilometers away.

I am an ENTJ, I used to believe in god, but now I don't. As a matter of fact, I think people who believe in god are quite ignorant of life. I don't mean to offend anyone.

Count me in as a believer in Christ AND an ENTJ.
I found the statistic interesting when I first read about it and contemplate it every so often.
My formative years were in Christ, and beyond those were a life where I chose to follow Christ, recently I came to know my personality type. I wouldn't throw aside what I've believed just because I typify as ENTJ. What this new knowledge has led me to do is to learn more about myself and know myself better in relation to God, learn of my weaknesses and strengths, thus hopefully fulfilling my vocation.

Additional interest if true is meggieb's comment about St Paul being and ENTJ..

Well, I'm an INTJ, but we're kind of in the same boat. We're near the top for being non-religious. But I am a Christian, and believe in the redeeming blood of Jesus. Now, I question every aspect of my religion, but I still end up believing it. People who say you can't rationalize religion just haven't rationalized every angle. No, I can't prove that Christianity is correct, but I also can't prove that life isn't a grand delusion in my brain. It's what I have chosen to believe, and it makes far more sense to me than other religions I've studied. I also have a B.S. in Biology, and just don't see how people think something as amazingly complex as life could have just happened. There had to be some design to set it in motion.

INTJ here - No, not even a little bit. I don't think I ever really believed in Santa etc. either as a child. Or I stopped believing earlier than most children. It isn't logical, you can't prove it and it serves me nothing. I prefer a more subjective approach to ethics that allows me to analyse a particular situation independent of anonymous written instructions from 2000 years ago.

I am a firm believer in God and a solid ENTJ. Every year my faith grows more and more, and I become more successful and happy.

I believe in a lovely goddess come to save me from grace.
