PostSubject: Different Forms of Spirituality for Different Personalities   Mon Feb 26, 2007 6:46 pm

I thought that this was interesting. What do you lean towards?

Quote :
Mystical Personality Factor - Intuitive/Feeling - People with this mystical personality factor tend to feel an underlying unity in all people and all things, and to seek transcendent experiences that are direct contact with this unity. Their approach to spirituality tends to be based on personal experiences of the transcendent rather than based on institutional authority and doctrine.

Authoritarian Personality Factor - Rulership Issues - People with an authoritarian personality factor, embrace establishing and conforming to authority as the main purpose of life. They tend to form hierarchical organizations that emphasize setting, following, and enforcing rules. In some cases, authoritarian groups tend to have hostile conflicts with those who do not follow their rules or share their values. The Christian Fundamentalist's firm belief in the inerrant authority of the Bible is a typical expression of the authoritarian personality. Religious terrorists are an extreme form of fundamentalism. It is a small step from believing that God will punish those who do not follow the rules to believing that God wants the select true believers to punish nonbelievers.

Intellectual Personality Factor - Analytical - People who are attracted to knowledge in the form of memorizing and analyzing writings, history, and theories. Produces religious pundits with extensive knowledge of the details of religious beliefs and religious history.

Service Personality Factor - Humanitarian - Service to others is a common form of spiritual expression in many religions. Some people are more attracted to this form of spirituality.

Social Personality Factor - Extroversion - Extroversion is a well established personality factor that reflects a person's desire to be involved with groups of people. Participation in a religious group or spiritual community is a social activity that has great appeal. The scientific study of religion tends to focus on the social aspects. Social support and connections from participation in a religous or spiritual group are sought.
----
The most successful religious organizations will appeal to all these personality factors. Many people find that they are drawn to more than one aspect of spirituality. However, some people place greater emphasis on one form of spirituality and are not attracted to others. In fact, conflicts are common among people with different personality types and different approaches to spirituality.

Well, as an ENFP, I vacillate between the Social Personality and the Mystical one. Sometimes one and sometimes another. Depending on the wind direction, I think!

Mine is intellectual though I would like it to be more mystical.
