    Sammy Hagar: I Can't Drive 55 Lyrics


    Well, I found one that might have had Ti-ish sounding lyrics (the tune seems to match, but I'm not sure):

    YouTube - Thom Yorke - Analyse
    Seems like a Ni song about Ti.

    How about: YouTube - HIM - Gone With The Sin

    I say Fi or some kind of N

    When I listen to music, I occasionally try to figure out what cognitive function or type it might best be representing. Going through random samples from my collection, then seeing if there is a youtube match, heres a few and my impressions on them (these are just my impressions without any analysis on most of them )...

    INFP - (FiNe)
    Echoes of Eternity - Lost Beneath A Silent Sky
    Epica - Solitary Ground
    Hagalaz' Runedance - Where the lonely Souls go
    Within Temptation - All I Need

    INFJ - (NiFe)
    The Cruxshadows - Eye of the Storm
    This one has some lyrics that seem like strong Fi, but overall, I get more of a feel of Fe supporting Ni. Curious if INFJs feel this represents them or not.
    Beseech - Innerlane
    Not really sure if this is INFJ or something else, but its one of the stranger and more imaginative videos I think I've ever seen.

    INTJ - (NiTe)
    Iced Earth - Order of the Rose

    ENFP - (NeFi)
    Enya - Only if
    Lunatica - Words Unleashed
    Lunatica - Who you are

    ENFJ - (FeNi)
    Enya Only time
    L'AME IMMORTELLE - Fallen Angel

    ISFP - (FiSe)
    Nightwish - Ever Dream
    Midnattsol-Desolation

    ESFP - (SeFi)
    Flogging Molly - Drunken Lullabies
    Omnia - Alive!
    Rehab - Wht Do U Wnt Frm Me

    ISFJ - (SiFe)
    After Forever - Empty Memories
    Delain - Frozen
    Lyriel - The promised Land

    xNxJ - Ni
    Therion - The Dreams Of Swedenborg

    xxFP- Fi
    Elis - Show me the way
    Imperia - Facing Reality
    Krypteria - Somebody Save Me


    xxFJ - Fe
    Chamber - Insane
    Epica - Never Enough
    Xandria - Eversleeping

    Minor music and dark lyrics = INFP (FiNi). Tell me if I am wrong! (Thankfully, I am not this dark anymore!!! )

    I'm Only Happy When it Rains - Garbage

    Lyrics:

    I'm only happy when it rains
    I'm only happy when it's complicated
    And though I know you can't appreciate it
    I'm only happy when it rains

    You know I love it when the news is bad
    And why it feels so good to feel so sad
    I'm only happy when it rains

    Pour your misery down, pour your misery down... on me

    I'm only happy when it rains
    I feel good when things are going wrong
    I only listen to the sad, sad songs
    I'm only happy when it rains

    I only smile in the dark
    My only comfort is the night gone black
    I didn't accidentally tell you that
    I'm only happy when it rains

    You'll get the message by the time I'm through
    When I complain about me and you
    I'm only happy when it rains

    Pour your misery down, pour your misery down... on me

    You can keep me company
    As long as you don't care

    I'm only happy when it rains
    You wanna hear about my new obsession?
    I'm riding high upon a deep depression
    I'm only happy when it rains
    Pour some misery down on me

    Certain tones of music make you think of flowers and gardens, other tones make you think of demons and monsters.
    I like to search through folk music for intuition.

    Hmmm, I certainly agree that they fit for INFP, but reading those lyrics above, that sounds more like sensing than intuiting. I guess the question would be whether a natural inclination toward sorrow and dark things is part of Fi in itself or a product of how the cognitive processes of Fi, Ne, Si and Te interact together in an INFP?

    This one here seems more like the kind of darkness an INFP would come up with (and one I relate to much more than happy when it rains (but I do like rainy days ))
    Beseech - Lost

    On the basis of comparing metal, I wont argue, but I don't really get an Ni or Ne feel from most Metallica songs. A lot of their lyrics have a feeling of relating to concepts like justice, free will and consequences, and those strike me as mostly Te (which would be shared by INTJ, but as a secondary process not dominant) but they seem flavored more by concrete descriptive lyrics than by ideas. I would say that most of Metallica's songs strike me as either ESTJ or ESFJ since they are either critiques of organized systems (justice, military etc) or drawing attention to problems with society and the way we treat people that do not conform (an argument could be made for Fi influence there, but the overall feel to me is Te or Fe dominant).

    I chose the Iced Earth song as a representation of INTJ since a common stereotype for INTJ (whether or not its accurate) is the mastermind and the themes of manipulation and world domination in that song as well as the more image/future idea oriented lyrics in it.

    Heres some other rock/metal songs I'm curious how others would type...

    Bruce Dickinson - River Of No Return - Strong Ni (or am I confusing Ni and Ne again?) / INxJ?
    Demons & Wizards - Spatial Architects - ?? / xNxx?
    Hammerfall - Shadow Empire - Te? / ENTJ?
    Iron Maiden - Montsegur - Si? / ISTJ?
    Queensryche - Revolution Calling - Nx? / ENxP?

    Other comments...
    Ok, that Bjork video was quite strange, but saying thats Ne makes me wonder if I'm seeing Ne completely wrong. I associate Ne with seeing and articulating possibilities and ideas that are influenced by introverted judgement of some type and Ni being the more dreamlike or visionary version of intuition that is much harder to act on or put into words, so I'd be more inclined to call the Bjork video INxJ.

    On a similar note, what would people consider these to be?
    Herbie Hancock - Rockit
    Peter Gabriel - Sledge Hammer
    To me, these are how I see ENTP, but again, I could be very confused since I have a harder time distinguishing between Ne and Ni than any other function pair.

    I just chose it because I usually score INTJ and like it a lot more... not a serious argument, I know... then again, I did recently take a MBTI out of curiosity and it said I was either an INFP or an ESTJ. My posts are usually spur of the moment BS btw.

    I am getting a strong Fi, probably coupled with Se, vibe from this song:

    YouTube - Alanis Morissette - Uninvited

    Also, I especially agree with some of Tenebrous' picks: Epica - Solitary Ground being IFP, Queensryche - Revolution Calling being ENP and Therion - Dreams of Swedenborg sounding NJ. :)
    Not really.

    That's a good one. One of my favorites from childhood/teenhood.

    Speaking of Alanis, this song always struck me as Fe from both the view of the person caring about the other & the person it is describing (and the person it describes seems to have the Ni perfectionism - I totally related to it throughout high school)...

    Mary Jane by Alanis Morissette

    Whats the matter mary jane, you had a hard day
    As you place the dont disturb sign on the door
    You lost your place in line again, what a pity
    You never seem to want to dance anymore

    Itsa long way down
    On this roller coaster
    The last chance streetcar
    Went off the track
    And youre on it

    I hear youre counting sheep again mary jane
    Whats the point of trying to dream anymore
    I hear youre losing weight again mary jane
    Do you ever wonder who youre losing it for

    Well its full speed baby
    In the wrong direction
    Theres a few more bruises
    If thats the way
    You insist on heading

    Please be honest mary jane
    Are you happy
    Please dont censor your trears

    Youre the sweet crusader
    And youre on your way
    Youre the last great innocent
    And thats why I love you

    So take this moment mary jane and be selfish
    Worry not about the cars that go by
    All that matters mary jane is your freedom
    Keep warm my dear, keep dry

    Tell me
    Tell me
    Whats the matter mary jane
