scorpiomover said:But one thing really does bug me: believing in supernatural beings, does not seem to be directly empirical by nature, and defy what our senses show us, but seem readily grasped intuitively, which suggests that religions were the product of, and most easily understood by, the minds of intuitive types, particularly intuitive-dominants.
More accurate to say that intuitives easily see through the need for relying on a supernatural explanation in the first place. Everything arises as a product of physical phenomena that by virtue of the limitations of our perceptions we cannot directly observe. Given infinite time and resources, we would be able to. The thing is that this is actually harder to understand than the concept of a supernatural being.
It's easier to understand the concept of, "God was always there and he made it" than it is to try to understand the much more complicated concepts of quantum chromodynamics and asymptotic freedom (for starters).
scorpiomover said:Yet, so many INTPs and INTJs, and a lot of INFJs and INFPs, all seem to be of the opinion that Sensors would be most likely to be religious, while Intuitives would be most likely to be atheists. This seems to go totally counter to the basic premise of the dichotomy between Sensation and Intuition.
It doesn't counter the basic premise of the dichotomy. It's exactly what you'd expect.
