FRANCIS, Leslie J.; STRATHIE, Duncan  y  ROSS, Christopher F.. Reading the Beatitudes (Mt 5:1-10) through the lenses of introverted intuition and introverted sensing: Perceiving text differently. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.4, pp.1-8. ISSN 2072-8050.

Working within the reader perspective approach to biblical hermeneutics, a recent series of empirical studies has tested the theory that the readers' psychological type preferences between sensing and intuition (perceiving functions) and between feeling and thinking (judging functions) shape distinctive readings of biblical texts. This study advances the debate by distinguishing between the two orientations within which the functions are expressed (introverted and extraverted). The added clarity offered by this refinement is illustrated by the distinctive voices of introverted intuition and introverted sensing engaging with the Matthean Beatitudes, eight verses rich in materials to engage the perceiving functions.

Palabras clave : reader perspective; psychological type; SIFT method; psychology and Bible.
