Extroverted Jesus

A friend just pointed me to the Journal of Psychology and Theology (2004, Vol 1) where Susan Howell, a psychology professor in Kentucky, documented a study of how college students would characterize the personality type of Jesus according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. For the most part, the students were divided and showed a tendency to describe Jesus' personality as similar to their own, but there was one remarkable statistic. Out of the 79 students surveyed, 77 of them described Jesus as an extrovert!!!!
