Uncommon Contradictions in Typing? Possible Mistype?

I've recently taken about 7 or 8 different versions of the Meyers-Briggs test, and (let's just stick with 8...) 7 out of 8 times I've gotten INTJ, but on the last one, I was shocked to see the result INTP pop up.
After scouring through countless web pages and paragraphs, I've still yet to determine what type I am or whether I have qualities of both. (Forgive me, I'm still getting used to the typology code).
In addition to that, I had taken the Ennaegram Wing Test and was not surprised to see a 6w5. After researching my result, I found that yes, I am without a doubt Type 6 with a 5 wing.
Now, to explain the title of this blog: Contradictions...
Let me start off by saying I am a dedicated and devoted non-demoninational Christian.
I know that INTJs, and I believe that INTPs, both look for the logic in most things and cannot believe in anything without solid and undeniable proof. For example, religion. Nearly every INTJ or INTP I know is an atheist or agnostic; however, that's definitely not the case for me, although everything else in their descriptions fits my behavior and personality entirely.
6w5 types are, as stated in the articles here, a mess of contradictions. It also states that we need something to believe in, for example a higher power, but at the same time we need to bash it down for the lack of proof, (again, quite like the INTJs and INTPs).
It seems as if 6w5s can be INTJs or INTPs, but INTJs and INTPs cannot be 6w5s. I know that there is no direct correlation between the two, but being as I was typed as both, they must be connected in some way. Not only that, but I also know now that female INTJs are uncommon, as well as Americans. Could this possibly be a mistype, or am I really just that different?
