    Default Believing "The Beatles" are overrated and type :)

    This follows on from the overrated bands thread, and some real life things. If you think The Beatles are overrated or find them completely underwhelming, select yes for your type. Otherwise select the "Hell no!" option.

    p.s. As much as I'm an idiot, I've noticed a small correlation with type and found it interesting. So take the poll somewhat seriously.

    Overrating something is opinion. People like the Beatles because.

    A.) Catchy as hell!
    B.) Willing to use simple and complex composition in songs.
    C.) Charismatic.
    D.) Foreign and exotic.
    E.) Nostalgic.
    F.) Pleasing to the senses. Their songs are filled with overlapping patterns much like any other band, and humans are creatures that are hardwired to love patterns.
    G.) Covered multiple styles, moods, and areas of discussion in their lyrics.
    H.) Cute for the girls.
    I.) The style of music was easily marketable to the youth of the time.
    J.) Changed their looks and style to avoid stagnation, and to discover themselves.

    I personally love the Beatles.

    If you're looking for correlations on this topic, I'd bet you'd be more likely to find one on age than type.

    Beatles are not overrated in terms of general public. Some people overrate them, while many underrate them. It really is quite balanced.

    I think it is overrated, but it doesn't soil my love for them.

    The Beatles mean different things to different people. I like the Beatles because I truly dig the message behind it and think they did something real. If a person likes them just because they are trying to be hip, it doesn't make my like them anymore or any less. It's sad. The sad truth is that a lot of people only like them because they think it is the cool thing to do, and that it gives you a reputation.

    People need to stop being fake and get real. Get soulful.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    The results of the test surprise me, because my mother (INtJ) loves the Beatles. I like them, I think they are good, but I don't say that they are the best or that others don't come close to them.

    That's probably the entire point of this thread, INXXs are the most likely to admit that they don't particularly like the Beatles. Count me among that group; I don't hate the Beatles, but I would much rather listen to countless other bands if given the choice.

    Beatles are the grandfathers of pop music, and that is their their crowning achievement.
    Some of their songs are good, and some of their songs are bland and effeminate.

    By the way, Beatles types:

    John Lennon - ENFP
    Paul McCartney - ISFP
    George Harrison - INFP
    Ringo Starr - ESTP

    I'm guessing they had a J manager.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
