Type and religion

I ran across this research review. Which says this:

"Religions have often been formed from the experience of one person or a group of people. Some religions are so old we can only guess at their origins, but for those religions where we do know their history, we often find that the founding people had a spiritual experience and felt divinely inspired to bring it to their people. Peter Richardson in Four Spiritualities suggests that the form of a religion depended on the psychological type of the founder. Moses and the Jewish religion tends to be ST, Mohammad and Islam tends to be SF, Jesus and the Christians are more NF, and the Unitarians, Zen and Native Spirituality are more NT."
