    Default Jimi Hendrix

    I have been listening to Room Full of Mirrors, an autobiography of Jimi Hendrix, and it has, so far, been a very interesting and addicting listen.

    From it, I have infered that he strikes me as an ISFP and I will explain.

    I- This is obvious, for he, throughout the book, is described as being "withdrawn" and the "quiet one". He is also stated as being Introverted, specifically, by the reader a few times.

    SP- It's also obvious; he struggles to keep his head up, and drops out of high school for his guitar. Not that I'm trying to make a point here, though. His P is really strong; he's constantly wandering around, moving from one place to another, never settling down.

    F- He lived a hard life, and his mother died when he was a teen. He was stated as sobbing, and wheeping nonstop, and he was always talking about how he going to go live with her in heaven. He was described by the author as "sensative" and he always gave off the F vibe with his girlfriends, and he, next to the guitar, they were his life. He wrote their names on his few first guitars, and was stated by the author as "always thinking about his girlfriends"

    That being said, I want to know what you know and think, and if you have any ideas or facts to share that will further our veiw of Jimi.

    I agree. No type has such a potential for the easygoing lover as an ISFP.

    Interesting. I was thinking he might be an INFP. I'm not too sure though. What makes him come across as an S?

    I hate how so many of the good musicians get typed as INFP, but that is what I'll type him as, INxP as a second guess. I've always been a fan and have seen plenty of interviews and films on him.

    I had considered INFP but he struck me more as an SP for the total dropping out of school for guitar playing..but I can see why he may be an INFP too, but my best friend is xSFP and he has a lot of similar traits.

    I guess INFP can be considered, but I still feel he's an ISFP.

    INFPs drop out of school, too. But I'm inclined to agree that Jimi's an ISFP. His lyrics seem deceptively N but I think a close look reveals that they come from an imaginitive sensor.
