5s are more prone to feeling overwhelmed by their emotions, where as 4s revel in them.
Yes, they feel overhelmed by their emotions when they are in public, not when they are alone.

"Stereotypes about personality and gender turn out to be fairly accurate: ... On the binary Myers-Briggs measure, the thinking-feeling breakdown is about 30/70 for women versus 60/40 for men." ~ Bryan Caplan
He's typically typed INFJ which seems about right but I've never been 100% certain. He is deeply private, which makes him hard to type but I suppose this in itself an indication of type. He's also rather dark, intense, and introspective, so I'm inclined to say INFX 5w4 sp/sx
INFP 4w5 so/sp
I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
- Emily Bronte
"When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fucking special
But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I'm not around
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special"
This is as much evidence of his 5-ness as his 4-ness, and I don't believe in typing by lyrics. Plus, the only time we ever get to see any emotion from Thom is through his songs, like other 5w4 songwriters such as John Lennon or Kurt Cobain. 5w4 deal with their emotions in private. Also, see what Stigmata posted about their song "Street Spirit".
Also, I see absolutely no Fe and he seems behind the scenes as opposed to chart the course.
Slightly annoying fella by the way (unrelated to type)
I think Ni is much more prominent with him. He doesn't really care if you don't get the symbolism of his lyrics. An ISFP might work Ni symbolism into their music, but not as one of THE MOST defining features of their lyricism. I think he may get into Ni/Ti loops which is why his Fe isn't as strongly apparent, but I frankly don't see a great deal of Se with him, at least not enough for it to be his aux function.
He has that whole Ni awkward thing going on. He's too much like a floating disembodied head. Besides, all of his outspoken political activism could be quite indicative of Fe, though you may see more Ni/Ti in his music.
