No, why?

To what did she mean: well, I am an idealist. Always wanting the world to be a better place and contributing to it.

Typical for an INTJ. :mrgreen:

INTJs make up only about 1,5% of the population, yet there are so many of them (us ;) ) who have left a trace in this world. Check this list:
http://www.celebritytypes.com/intj.php

An INTJ is a true free thinker. You can notice that the people in the list I linked belong to different political and religious views.

I've asked myself the same thing. And I couldn't manage to find out. There are very few female INTJs. The site I linked says about 0,5%.

Well, we have the case of Jesus Christ, the case of Martin Luther King, the case of Ghandi, the case of Newton, heck even the on the "darker side" the cases of the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc...
History is full of "one person" that has changes the world.

From wikipedia:

"Maria's father was an atheist; her mother—a devout Catholic. Two years earlier Maria's oldest sibling, Zofia, had died of typhus. The deaths of her mother and sister, according to Robert William Reid, caused Maria to give up Catholicism and become agnostic."

I hope she is not in hell :crying:

Well, the Serbian terrorist who assassinated Archduke Ferdinand certainly changed the world.
