    Reading his lyrics and looking at his demeanor alone - INFP.

    You just described my own appearance perfectly. xD

    he is realllyyyy difficult to type. as an american, i find that i have a hard time typing british people... they're so much more reserved than us, and it can kinda throw me off. even the most mushy INFPs can put up a bit of a reserved, Fe front.

    can someone provide evidence for INFP v. INFJ? i find that it's really difficult for me to spot Ni in songs, and it does seem to me like it can be a bit over-spotted by Ni people.

    Okay, wait, I thought of a way of articulating this..... Notice that he gets very blunt when guarding some info he does not want the interviewer to know? He puts up a wall & is rude about it. I see FJs do this a lot. When there is a perception of someone as rude, their Fe mindset feels justified to respond in kind. People should know not to pry, after all, and this directness sort of shames them. It's like he's scolding the interviewer on propriety. In contrast, he is otherwise relatively diplomatic for someone who is guarded & reserved. When it's info the FJ is comfortable with sharing, then they may be less direct & more diplomatic, seeking to gain consensus, understanding or approval even.

    An FP type will often be blunt when expressing what is important to them, because they want it to be known, and accuracy is more at stake then propriety. When they want something to be known, then they are blunt. When they want to guard something, then they often become vague & indirect. I rarely slam people down when they pry - that would alert them to the fact that I am guarding something. I want to hide that I am even guarding something.... So instead I brush it off, give a vague answer, and try and distract them & lead hem towards another topic.

    I definitely see him as an FJ in this respect.
    It's also kind of British behavior... as I said in another post, I find it a bit difficult to type British people because they're markedly more guarded than Americans

We want to express a particular personal perspective/feeling/atmosphere/belief through art - and we would want to inspire a similar reaction in others ("feel as I feel and then you will understand"). Whereas he seems keen to distance himself from his work. From what I understand, Ni doms are interested in exploring ideas rather than a personal emotional experience. I've also heard that Ni doesn't need an empathic audience or for people to understand the rationale behind an expression, its just about putting it out there (read some of what is said about Ni humour in the thread a few months ago). Some INFJ artists seem to want to take themselves out the picture entirely and their creativity comes through channeling inspiration from seemingly out of nowhere. I remember watching an interview with Meryl Streep where she talked about this.

    This is slowly convincing me he's a INFJ

    As for enneatype: I think him the 5w4 'iconoclast' description fits him well:

    idk though---i'm definitely an INFP and would probably describe my music as a 'parallel universe.' it isn't an exact representation of my feeling... it's more like a projection of a world, and not necessarily MY world

    I just saw this thread


    anyway apparently I'm the only one who thinks he's INTP.
    basically everyone else thinks he's INFJ or INFP.
    I'd still argue that the intense emotionality + expression thereof is very reminiscent of
    an INTP 4w5 with Socionics type INFj
    or something,
    but that's just because I'm biased because that's what I am,
    and I see my interior landscape reflected in his musical output,
    but i'm probably not the only one that feels that way,
    so,
    that's no great indicator.
