    Default Metal Bands based on their lyrics

    Iced Earth - xNTJ 8w7 so/sx
    Insomnium - INFP 5w4 so/sx
    Opeth - ISFP 4w5 sx/sp
    Blind Guardian - INTP 5w6 sp/sx
    Fear Factory - ISTP 6w7 sx/sp
    Manowar - ENFJ 3w4 so/sx
    Epica - INTJ 8w9 sx/so

    I imagine the metal scene is generally Se/Ni heavy - particularly on the more extreme side of the genre. Enneagram-wise, head types seem like they'd be prominent and I think sp-firsts are generally unusual in music.
    I am exploiting others as guinea pigs to further my understanding of typology.

    I'm a Ti-Ne. My MBTI is listed as ENTJ because from dichotomies alone, that's my best fit.

    Carcass - xNTx

    Pretty sure the Opeth singer is an INFJ. No idea about their lyrics.

    I see Fi in their lyrics. The richness of them comes from the Se details that are so much coloured by Fi.

    For all intents and purposes, those Carcass lyrics remind me of Opeth a little. If I had to guess, maybe INTJ but there's not much to go on.
    I am wondering if Enneagram 9 is a better fit for Opeth lyrically, though. It's a gut feeling I need to think more about.
