    They're a pretty good band, IMO. I always get a sense of "frustration" as the main emotion in Ti songwriting.

    Lots of ENTPs are in music...

    As for INTPs:

    David Byrne (Talking Heads) is very likely INTP. His blog is a great example of Ne-aux: http://journal.davidbyrne.com/

    Frank Black of the Pixies is probably INTP (maybe ENTP though).

    These guys have been really influential on other musicians. I think their lyrics are fantastic. I like that it's not all about love & emotion.


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

    That was the best fluff news story EVER. The sheer absurdity of it MUST be connected to Ne.

    Here's an awkward interview. He kinda reminds me of Marlon Brando in some way.

    I'll happily claim her for my fellow ENFPs then! Damn, I wish I had more to contribute to the thread though. But then again I guess leave it to an ENFP to think it a good idea to write all her music while hungover.

    No... this guy:

    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11

    Those are all socionics IEI's. Ni Fe.

    Am I in bizarro world here?

    Why does it seem like this is the only forum where my conception of INFJ is what everyone else thinks is INFP, and what I think INFP, everyone thinks INFJ?

    It wasn't like this until I joined this forum. Does everyone here go by kiersey or something? Cuz in that case I'm an ENTJ.

    Socionics INFps are MBTI INFjs. The J and P in socionics refers to whether the dominant function is rational or irrational.

    Why would you think they are INFJs?

    I'm not even going to talk about it, because everyone's understanding of introverts functions is so ass backwards I'm just going to incite a riot and insult everyone's current understanding of typology.

    In short, Ni is a perception function that percieves an overall picture across a larger timespan, while Se is a very point specific perception that is timeless.

    The two functions are interconnected. INFJ's are often "the muses" or "the romanticists" as socionics puts it. In my understanding, every one of the artists you mentioned check my box for INFJ musicians.

    As for INTP artists, I'd look more toward people like Seven Wilson of porcupine tree.


    As for INFP musicians, i'd look toward bands like "Sigur Ros."

    The speakers I have access to are shitty so I can't investigate.

    I should clear up something about my list of INTP musicians. I basically just threw together some random artists who I knew were definitely not INTPs, and called them INTPs. It's basically a parody of how some INTPs people take every celebrity or character they like and make them INTPs. I know, it wasn't funny. Basically, I don't know if they're all INFPs, but I know they aren't INTPs. I'm inclined to think Jimi is an ISxP and not an intuitive at all.

    The only INTP musician I know of is Isaac Brock.


    Personally, I have a hard time distinguishing Ni and Fi because they both seem "out there" to me. And they are "out there" in a sincere way, not out there in the playful Ne-Ti way.

    The only thing that I can determine is that I tend to find INFJs easier to understand than INFPs, or even INTJs, but I'm not sure why this is.


    If you do want to destroy my understanding of typology, I'm actually open. As an extrovert, you probably have way more real life data points. I accept the challenge.
