    Don't get me wrong, I like that song, but if I could write songs, I don't think I'd ever write a song like that.
    oh shit! wikipedia says that song was written by lennon, i'm so embarrassed. i'm sorry to have caused you confusion, now im confused myself.

    Ah!!!

    Theory confirmed.

    Well, not really. But in a bullshit Ti dom way, yeah.
    [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


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    @pinkgraffiti Sorry, I don't always read stuff in order .

    I think Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins is ISFP, based on some interviews, but certainly Fi-dom.

    Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star - INFP or ISFP?
    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)

    Banks & Bolan 5s & not 4s? They're not dry enough....

    IDK about Cat Power being INTP either... dry, impersonal logic for her?

    And Corgan a 6w5 & not 4w3? I can buy ENFJ for him though.



    How else should you feel?

    I feel very, very important when I do this .
    I consider these relatively easy typings so I'm not sure how to respond.

    Discerning between infp and intp isn't exactly rocket science, but what's this about dryness?

    Re: dark side

    I don't talk about it much because it brings people down, but I think about it a lot and find a certain beauty in suffering and intense pain or sadness. Not that I would ever want to cause it, and not that I enjoy or relish experiencing it, but I do sometimes see it as beautiful in some ways.

    I have set a book aside when it was too upsetting, once. I was reading it at a time when I was also experiencing extreme turmoil in my life and it was just too much- I couldn't focus between them or separate the two.

You've never known an INFP to get two thirds of the way through a book, and then put it down because it's "too upsetting?" Admittedly, I find this really weird, because isn't the point of art to stir your emotions? If something makes you feel, isn't that good?
    No. That wouldn't be why it's upsetting. A book is upsetting when it's poorly crafted, yanking the emotional world of the characters around like puppets on strings. Books that contain no rational threads connecting the narrative and emotional realm and tenor of the characters. Think of it like all the nitpicky Ti things that bug you about, oh, say M Night Shyamalan's movies. (I can provide another example if that doesn't 'click' for you.) Now, take that to the world of people. Those are the things that upset me anyway. There are diversities in characters for sure, but there's rules within that and you can't just break those rules willy-nilly.

    I will also say I hate sticky books sometimes, that the emotional experience of it 'sticks' with me and intermingles with my own for longer than I want. Sometimes I have enough real-world emotions around me to deal with, I don't need to add those found in the fictional realm as well. I want to shake them off me, but I have to process them as thought they are my own.

    Sorry if I missed him. I did a page search and his name didn't come up.
