    Default Thom Yorke

    What's his type?? Anyone know enough about the man to take a stab at it? Someone said ISFP, which made me wonder.

    I agree with, and am pretty sure about INFJ 5w4. I think he could be sx/sp though.

    Edit: I think these are good interviews; maybe they could be useful here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWOKtktYfP0 (embedding videos never seems to work for me...)

    I always thought of him as a 4w5. Would anyone elaborate why he's more 5w4 than 4w5, so I can better understand the two?

    Also, I think I can agree with INFJ. Those were great interviews @Komakino. Thanks. I had difficulty finding one where he wasn't pissed with the interviewer. He seems to have taken a liking to this particular interviewer.

    Doesn't indulge in his emotion, but detach; notoriously cold appearence. Lacks the dramatic expression of type 4, schizoid tendencies.

    In one interview he touched on how he indulged in his emotions and saw copycats of his style and how that mirrored back, which was what influenced him to, I guess detach from it.

    He indulges in his emotions when he is withdrawned. Characteristic of 5.

    He's by no means a sensor, just gauging from the sort of metaphorical nature in which he answers some of his questions. I'm not sure if it's that interview or another one in which he states that he gets this really raw, unrefined ideas for songs, but doesn't know how to properly mold them into actually finished works or even really interpret them, and that's basically where the other members of Radiohead come into play.

    Personally, just from what I've observed from him in interviews and read about him, I'd go with INFJ.

    5s are more prone to feeling overwhelmed by their emotions, where as 4s revel in them.
