    Eminem states very clearly how he writes music. It's very mechanical using patterns in words...vs. choosing words carefully to communicate a specific thought. In other words, what sounds better to the ear is more important to the topical vs. actual content.

    The intensity of his gaze is very common among ISTP's. But wouldn't go so far as to say that's his type. In that there's a ton that's unknown about him.

    i.e. We know that he likes Comic books, and wanted to have a comic book store. We know that he dropped out of school, although very talented...definately not the brightest bulb in the forest.

    We also know that running is his choice for getting exercise.

    So I'm sure of "I" in that it's biographically well documented, sure of "S"...reasonably positive of "T" in just observing his spoken word choices as to P or J? Not sure.
    Not a good argument. You say "sure of S" based on that interview? I would say that interview has not clearly shown whether he's N or S.

    From his music, his lyrics, his videos. Look at some of his more popular songs - "Stan", "Lose Yourself", "Till I Collapse" for example.

    Eminem writes many of his lyrics based on his emotions. 'Kim' was a classic example of this. He certainly isn't very Fe too. He talks to much about his feelings. He's not necessarily the most logical person. In the video provided by miserable he talks quite a bit about his feelings.

    Huh, I would have thought ENFJ for Ani.

    Initial thought on Eminem would be ISTP, but..whatever, everyone seems to have different notions on what constitutes each of the cog functions/types.

    Also....Fe users are quite capable of experiencing powerful emotions...it's not really pure Fi territory, sorry. And I would think most especially with musicians, that line would get blurred, simply because music is an emotional medium.

    Trent Reznor is not an F. I don't know who Slug is, and I don't know anything about Ani DiFranco, but you have a bias toward labeling artistic people as Feelers for some reason. All of your points here seem to reduce to, "BUT HE'S AN ARTIST AND THERE'S OBVIOUSLY FEELING IN HIS MUSIC!!!"

    Well, of course there's feeling in his music. Art by nature requires feeling in order to be inspired. That doesn't magically turn every artist into an Fi dominant personality type.

    In the above posted interview, Eminem discusses his personal values and feelings very little. He instead tries to detach himself and analyze the effects drugs have had on his life in a more objective sense, seeking to understand the problem from the outside so he doesn't have to repeat it.

    No he doesn't. He talks about the physical sensations that drugs induced in him and looks for rational analysis to give himself a good reason to avoid those patterns again. "It made me feel better/worse" is just Se talking about his physical bodily experiences.

    Fi is more related to personal values and the ethics that one "knows" to be the right or wrong thing to do. Em doesn't mention anything about this in that interview.

    And he's not very Fe because Fe is the ISTP's inferior function. I see occasional flashes of inferior Fe when he complains about how rude and obnoxious fans and the media are to him--he thinks they're violating some kind of politeness standards, but his criticisms have only a rudimentary awareness of context. He doesn't understand how his being an asshole right back to them perpetuates this kind of negative image.

    "And I'm thankful for every fan that I get / But I can't take a shit in the bathroom without someone standing by it / No, I won't sign you an autograph, you can call me an asshole, I'm glad"
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I've always thought Eminem to be an ESTP and a tool.
