Functional Order: Ni-Fe-Ti-Se

Perceiving Functional Axis:

Introverted Intuition (Ni) / Extroverted Sensing (Se)

Jesus has spent his entire life preparing for, and awaiting the moment, to begin his ministry; something he knew was his destiny as a child, when his parents found him deliberating in the temple with the priests. Patiently, he awaits the hour he can begin to teach, recruit disciples, and heal others. He has a ‘sense’ and a knowing of whom to call to him first, and selects people from all walks of life in which he sees potential. He threads elaborate symbolic stories through all his parables, as he urges people to think about the eternal destination of their soul. He spends a lot of time alone pondering, but also reaches strong intuitive conclusions quickly (such as inviting Nicodemus to follow them, and then when he does not, feeling sorrow because “you came so close”). Jesus draws others to him because his teaching is like nothing they have before heard. He shows very little Se usage, other than being good with his hands in his carpentry skills and in his enjoyment of nature.

Judging Functional Axis:

Extroverted Feeling (Fe) / Introverted Thinking (Ti)

Warm and tender-hearted, Jesus seems to be lonely without friends (as we see in the episode with the children—his sorrow and melancholy). He has a generous heart and easily reaches out to others, understanding them and approaching them on a level catered to their individuality, but he wants to bring them together into a group, mobilize them, and teach them to be “fishers of men.” Jesus’ compassion for others means he reaches out to touch them, heal them, and risk his life for them, but he is also not above condemning them if they are in the wrong. He enjoys laughing and teasing, making jokes, but also making others feel welcomed. He has created his own philosophy and belief system, which he teaches to others, and which makes sense to him, based on his high moral principles.

Enneagram: 1w2 self-preservation

Jesus teaches others kindness and servitude, encouraging them to take responsibility for themselves and do good unto others, to turn the other cheek, to walk two miles if someone forces you to walk one… to strive for a kind of holy perfection through goodness of the heart as much as the hands. He has total convictions based in what he does, and wants to communicate these beliefs and rules of the heart to others. His 2 wing is emotional, outreaching, willing to forgive people their mistakes, but he still calls them on their sins from time to time, as he does with the woman at the well. His desire to be kind and good urges him to hasten on with his ministry, to help the poorer family at the wedding, when he turns the water to wine.
