    Dave Chappelle is pretty clearly E. ENFP seems likely. I would consider INFP and ISFP highly unlikely.

    As for Bob Marley, one of the differences between ISFP and INFP is that ISFPs (Fi/Se) tend to be more into physical, sensory art and musicianship - ex. Miles Davis, Prince, Hendrix. INFPs are more oriented towards art with a purpose that relates to social change and helping people. ex - Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bob Marley.

    INFP actually makes sense, although I'm still leaning towards ISFP. His social activism doesn't really suggest Ne or Se.

    The N/S between IFP types results in a different temperament. That's a good lens to look at it from when typing between ISFP and INFP. SP artists are more sensory oriented and NF artists are more people oriented.

    That's a bit of a reach. Most people, including INFPs, are gonna make art to express themselves, not out of a grandiose desire to change the world. I doubt a 16 year old INFP is sitting in his room like "wow, I'm gonna make music that brings about world peace", they'll probably have the same narcissistic approach to art as ISFPs, just in a more abstract way.

    Making music for a greater humanitarian purpose isn't specific to any type or temperament, it's a matter of preference, and what Bob Marley does is no different from an ESFJ making a Christian Rock album. If anything, it's a feeler thing.

    I don't think it's a reach at all. The temperaments are a fundamental aspect of typing in my opinion and there's a strong difference between NF and SP.

    From Keirsey.com:

    As Abstract Cooperators, Idealists (NF) speak mostly of what they hope for and imagine might be possible for people, and they want to act in good conscience, always trying to reach their goals without compromising their personal code of ethics.

    As Concrete Utilitarians, Artisans (SP) speak mostly about what they see right in front of them, about what they can get their hands on, and they will do whatever works, whatever gives them a quick, effective payoff, even if they have to bend the rules.


    NF musicians:

    Bob Dylan
    Neil Young
    Roger Waters
    Joni Mitchell
    Sixto Rodriguez
    Ben Harper
    Bono
    Peter Gabriel

    SP musicians:

    David Lee Roth
    Axl Rose
    Jimi Hendrix
    David Bowie
    Beyonce
    Britney Spears
    Justin Beiber
    Madonna

    And an ESFJ making a Christian Rap Album is definitely different. ESFJs are not wired to change the world. INFPs are. Quite a big difference if you ask me.

    As Concrete Cooperators, Guardians (SJ) speak mostly of their duties and responsibilities, of what they can keep an eye on and take good care of, and they're careful to obey the laws, follow the rules, and respect the rights of others.
