    Default INFP musicians?

    I was just trying to organize my music collection (it's a mess) and dividing it by genres etc.. and then i thought about creating an INFP musician list. It seems logic, I have a lot of music like that.... so off the top of my head, i'd say

    Cat Power



    Fiona Apple



    Jeff Buckley



    Elliot Smith



    Elisabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins)



    Kurt Cobain


    more?

    For instance, Antony+Johnsons seems like a 4w5, but I think he's INFJ and there's something too Fe about his music that strikes me as different from the other INFPs. Andrew Bird also comes to mind, but that's another case of someone that I think is a 4w5 but not really an INFP.

    Sorry, all INFP musicians are actually INTPs. We stole them all. Kurt Cobain is a textbook INTP, as is John Lennon, Eminem, Tupac, Hank Williams, Mick Jagger and Jimi Hendrix. INTPs actually invented music.
    [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....

    It seems you've 'stolen' a bunch of SP musicians too.

    The INTPs have got Black Francis, though. That's pretty cool.
    INFP 4w5 so/sp

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    In all honesty, I can think of only two or three Ti dom musicians, and at least one of them is an ISTP.

    Probably something along the lines of what Courtney Love did to Kurt Cobain. Clearly, there is nothing to indicate that Cobain was suicidal, so it must have been Courtney Love's doing.

    lol i'm slightly offended that you should compare me to c love or even consider her to be an ENFP. Also, as a nirvana fan myself, i've spent hours and hours trying to understand that whole story, but at the end of the day unfortunately i think he did it himself...

    Mostly, I just find the Courtney Love conspiracy theory bizarre, and wanted to bring that up. I don't know very much about her, but you probably are pretty different.

    The theory is bizarre because, by all accounts, Kurt Cobain hated himself and wanted to die. He even wanted to call the last album "I hate myself and want to die."

    Suicide really isn't that implausible.

    Bringing things back on topic, I think the Mountain Goats guy is an INFP.

    Naw, I 'm just messing around. Actually, I do think Kurt is an INFP.

    Mountain Goats guy certainly is. He has that gift for florid, evocative language common to INFPs who are skilled at verbal expression.
