    Default Song Which Capture the Essence of Functions

    I know there are songs for types, but I thought it would be interesting to see what people would pick to represent individual functions. I thought that specifically it would be interesting to see how people interpret their own functions and how that contrasts to other types with combinations of the same functions. Of course, you're not limited to that - feel free to pick a song for every single function if you'd like.

    I'll start with mine as an ENFP. These aren't necessarily my favorite songs or anything, but songs that strike me as representing how I experience or interpret Ne/Fi/Te/Si within my own personality.

    [YOUTUBE="hSGMjB3HbGM"]Ne[/YOUTUBE]

    I picked Tori Amos for Ne not only because she's NFP, but because the symbolic, *seemingly* disconnected lyrics which she carefully weaves together into the stories of her songs reminds me of the nature of Ne's way of seeing patterns, and the upbeat, idealistic, exploratory idea of bouncing off of clouds also seems very Ne dom to me.

    [YOUTUBE="I-v3sVWT8pA"]Fi[/YOUTUBE]

    I hope the Fi of this song speaks for itself, because I would have a very hard time putting the emotion this song evokes into words...well, you know, other than the song title being Empathy.

    [YOUTUBE="6j7huh5Egew"]Te[/YOUTUBE]

    Te was the hardest function for me to pick a song for, but I think Seven Nation Army has a really aggressive, percussion beat that gives me energy and makes me want to DO things. In the lyrics, he talks about not being held back, and of course the word army evokes images of the military which is a very Te institution.


    [YOUTUBE="7E88RUqyjts"]Si[/YOUTUBE]

    I picked this one because I actually liked this song as a child, I grew up in the South so country music was an inextricable part of my past like it or not, I was raised by my grandparents, and the lyrics of the song remind me of my own idealistically nostalgic nature i.e. A Past That Never Really Existed. Note that as an NFP I probably have a hard time experiencing Si without the filter of Fi, so this might not seem totally right to Si dom/aux (?)

    This one for Te, the title says it all:

    ESTP kind of Se (Axl Rose is an ESTP himself, so this feeling is partially due to his performance)

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S18fzNqmt98&feature=related"]Nighttrain[/YOUTUBE]

    ISFJ kind of Fi (I'm using socionics functions, bear with me)

    For me, this reminds me of how Ti sees love. It doesn't have the language to describe it, so it must find something else beautiful in Ti's terms and show it to the person. In the sharing, is the expression.

    Meet me in outer space
    I will hold you close
    If you're afraid of heights
    I need you to see this place
    It might be the only way
    That I can show you how
    It feels to be inside of you

    Most of those aren't bad, but I don't know what's so hellish about Se. It's just preference for details/momentary awareness, enjoying the new y'know? No one needs to be damned for it

    I..... actually can't think of a good Se song though. Maybe this a little.. (eh..i never liked this VH song, but whatever).

    You just say that because you are a F.
