    I think INFP is a good option for Raznor, since there are very few NTs who have such a musical talent like him, also his style and lyrics (Hurt) seem 4ish sometimes.
    ISFP? meh..

    I looked up an actual link to a thing he wrote on some board, and his way of communicating seems pretty damn NT to me. He's an INTJ. INTJs tend to be a little more "creative" than INTPs, in my experience. Not because INTPs can't be original, but because we have a hard time pouring all of our energy into one specific thing.

    He's also really comfortable with the "dark side".

    And, INTP musicians exist.



    Here's one from when he was less famous.



    I'm sure to most people, he seems really bizarre, but honestly, to me, his behavior makes perfect sense. The mannerisms, the seeming distractedness, the way of speaking... this is probably how I come off in person. Notice how he's always pointing out some weird detail off in the distance or from his memory and commenting on it... that suggests Ne, not Se. It's too dreamy and absent-minded to be Se. Really, he's basically a big dork underneath it all, plain as day.

    As for the mountains of evidence suggesting Morrisey as an ESTJ, you can find them at the Mid-Atlantic ridge. If you want proof, sometimes you gotta dig deep with a submersible and literally go underwater.

    Finally, while I appreciate people posting links to other threads, I don't think trying to minimize the creation of new threads, or stunt them, is good for forum health.

    Yeah but they can't really be considered as artists. Most INTPs who express theiselves through music use it as a medium to get people to hear their message, they are not doing it for the music alone.

    Florence Welch from Florence + The Machine is probably INFP or at least ENFP.

    Modest Mouse is not "real art"? Compared to what? Fucking Maroon 5?

    I mean, art seems really hard to find and appears to have been a bugaboo of philosophers for centuries. I mean, apparently, in the right context, a urinal is art.

    You don't have to like MM, but they create art, if you're calling music an art, which you seem to be.

    Brock might not use evocative Fi language like John Darnielle (whom I also love and want to marry in a totally heterosexual same-sex marriage, of course) but his lyrics are pretty damn good, I think.

    "So pleased with ourselves for using so many verbs and nouns, but we were all still just dumb dumb dumber than the dirt dirt dirt on the ground."
    It's less pretty than Fi songwriting, to be sure, but it cuts to the truth of something. At the risk of sounding dopey, I feel as though I get what he's singing about, and I love the unique way it's phrased and his odd lispy voice with some kind of a West Coast accent underneath. It's perfect to listen to with autumn coming on.

    (I just hope, if MM ever makes another band, they go back to the basics and get rid of that dude from Morrisey's band.... it doesn't fit that well with his sound. It just creates too much noise )

    Ok, bringing things on topic here... Wesley Schultz from the Lumineers writes songs like an INFP. I don't know much about him to bring any more to the table than that. But, what could be more wonderfully Fi than this? Of course, I always read an ambiguity into these kinds of songs that the writers don't usually seem to intend.



    I also think Marisa Nadler might be an INFP. I need to buy one of her albums, because she's amazing and should be better known.



    Oh, and my INFP reading is off the charts with Jeff Magnum. Poetic lyrics combined with an almost Cobain-like inability to handle fame. He basically disappeared for 10 years after the released of this album.

    Great tracks! Shame I didn't know the Lumineers before their no. 1 hit.

    Well, I don't think there's a real definition for art but for me it is something purely emotional, the language of feelings. It can take you to fantastic worlds beyond your imagination and has nothing to do with fucking politics or sth like that. Today, everyone with a computer can create music, but it takes more than just a beat and meaningful lyrics to make art out of it.
    That's why I guess most INTPs suck at it and why this field is so Fi dominated.

    Btw have you ever heard of Lykke Li? A great INFJ artist from sweden.

    I guess I'm not sure if you consider Brock to be a good musician or not, but his songwriting does convey emotion to me. I'm not sure if it translates well to non-Ti doms/inferior Fe types, though.

    Code:
    "Back in the Metro
    Ride on a Greyhound
    Drunk on the Amtrack
    Please shut up!
    
    Another rider
    He was a talker
    Talking about TV
    Please shut up!"
    
    (I cannot explain how much I identify with this.)
    
    "You said that you did, but you didn't understand."
    
    "we only have one chance
     one chance
     to get everything right. 
    
    we only have one chance 
    one chance
     and if we're lucky we might. ''
    Granted, they all lose something without the melodic/harmonic component.

    Btw have you ever heard of Lykke Li? A great INFJ artist from sweden.
    No. I'm not sure if it's my cup of tea either. I prefer a lushier, more melodic approach to a rhythmic approach. That just leaves me cold. I need the music to do some of the work of emoting.

    Is the Tallest Man on Earth INFP? I could see that.

    Oooh, I'd like to claim him but I thought he was considered INTX.

    Oh well. I will lazily agree.

    I was sold on Morrissey being INFJ for awhile... but I'm back to thinking he's most likely INFP. I think he's probably Fi-dom, but a lot more forthright with opinions than most Fi-dom. He gets misunderstood a LOT, which is trademark Fi also.

    He's TEXTBOOK enneagram 4w3. I think the 3 wing gives him this Fe flavor sometimes, and he appears way less flexible than your average INFP.

    In interviews, I thought he seemed more Ni than Ne, but I think it's just Ne-aux. He sort of simultaneously seems sure of what he believes & then claims to not really know anything. That contrast in security/insecurity is more Fi, especially when paired with a very consistent belief system (and he's been very consistent in his behaviors concerning his beliefs over the years), because it shows the insecurity is more in expression or finding an external form that's adequate. I find INFJs more likely to be inconsistent in their beliefs, but appear secure in them (to the point of arrogance, perhaps), so that they can be fickle in behaviors (one day vegan, the next week, not).

    He's really obviously an introvert who prefers feeling & intuition, it's just a matter of his functions' orientation.
    I can imagine a mini ESTJ inside him easier than a mini ESTP


    EDIT: HILARIOUS that people actually think Morrissey is ESTJ. I think that settles inferior Te for him.

    I think ENFP.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
