    "The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power."



    I think it is just that. That is why I agree with the INTP statement (alongside the ENFJ and ENTJ ones) However, I often despise sculptural pieces and modern art you see in art galleries can be uninteresting. Usually I appriciate aesthetically pleasing pieces of artwork but this for example -


    is boring.

    The first post about the types interpretation of art is anti-sensor biased. Many people in my art class are sensors, who seem to be skilled at the practical development and very aware of sensory detailed in their work (which I personally find difficulty with) They do not have the inability to understand or admire abstract concepts.

    Art is art. I know what it is when I look at it.

    Better question is "What's each type's favorite kind of art?"

    INFJ: Art moves humanity in times when individuals are at their lowest. It can shine a light on serious problems facing our society and hopefully enlighten all those who need it.
    INFP: Who is to say what art means to anyone else. I think art is beautiful, it encaptures the whole of a persons soul, and shares meaning with others in a way words sometimes cannot.
    Well according to this, INFJ's are the only one's who understand art!

    I definitely relate with the Istp. To me, art is anything pretty. I'm not into that art gallery mindset of "this painting represents..." or "you can tell the what the artist was feeling through the brushstrokes". If it catches my eye, yay, moving on...

    I relate most with the INFJ, ENFJ and INFP definitions of art. In my opinion, art, at its best, can inspire people and serve as the foundation for culture. It serves as a tool for reaching into the deepest depths of the nature of humanity and drawing out what is best. A medium for anamnesis.

    I think art is an extension of oneself/ones' personality into an external medium, with the intent to say something, convey something, express something.

    As such, it'll vary from one person to the next, in terms of what that extension is and means, what the person finds beautiful, what the person finds valuable, what the person is saying or expressing.

    It's also why we all have our own preferences as far as art we like and art we dislike.

    SP here, art is subjective. That's the only definition in good faith that works for me. Boring, I know.

    This made me laugh in part because its the honest brutal truth. There are instances where art is important to be sure, but I find that a lot of times people use it to make themselves seem more interesting than they actually are when they could have actually been doing something interesting.

    Art to me is literally anything you wanna call art because of the meanings you see in it.

    Did you arrange it yourself? (i'm not being sarcastic, it's that you actually suceeded in the ENFP's perspective and I think overall, congrats )
