    Default Thom Yorke

    Feeling/Intuition Introvert. INFJ. Certainty 4/5.

    In the following interview (And others), he is extremely concerned with passing judgment based on his emotional value system, thus implying Feeling Primary. He displays signs of Intuition as well, implying that as Support.

    YouTube - Thom Yorke interview about the new album "Eraser"

    Compare Yorke with a musician I believe is INFP, Elliott Smith (Certainty 9/10). Smith seems to be more of a Perceiver in my view.

    INFP. He's too scruffy to be a J. He constantly looks like he's just got out of bed, smoked a hell of a lot of weed and downed a lot of alcohol. Simultaneously. Also Radiohead kinda break too many boundaries to suggest a J. They sound like no one else.

    Uh............

    Is that seriously how you type people?

    Break too many boundaries to suggest J???????????????????? Have you heard of Ni? What makes you think Ni breaks fewer boundaries than Ne? In fact, Ni breaks more boundaries, as Ne by definition PLAYS OFF OF THE ENVIRONMENT. Ni isn't even bounded by external situations.

    Also, too scruffy to be J? Smoking and drinking somehow determine that you're a P?


    Honestly, I have no idea what type Thom Yorke is. He could be an INFP. But your rationale is seriously lacking.

    INFJ

    The F is weak. The N is strong. But, the J is for realze.

    For real? Scruffiness as a decisive eliminator of type? LOL.

    I came as soon as i saw "thom yorke" to type INFJ.

    i'd guess infj.

    if you don't get the F, listen to the bends instead of the impersonal works after ok computer. watch meeting people is easy.

    also, after thinking about it,
    true love waits and talk show host = infj
