5 Contemporary Personality Types

post everythingFollowing last weeks post on 5 people who’ve made us all suspicious I also came across the following: According to Jeff Fountain of the Schuman Centre for European Studies there are five types of modern Europeans:

  1. Post-Christian – rejects traditional Christianity as irrelevant and outdated
  2. Post-Communist – rejects science and state as saviours
  3. Post-modern – rejects the scientific modern worldview
  4. Post-Migrant – children of immigrant parents (bringing their own worldviews to the culture)
  5. Post-Secular – new age, DIY spirituality

This seems/looks/feels roughly right – at least with the sorts of people I meet and talk with. The question is, how do we effective do mission among these groups? Ideas gratefully received.
