    Default Kate Bush

    Kate Bush is my all-time favourite singer-songwriter. From the very beginning of her career her unique lyrics and eclectic musical arrangements caught my attention, and my infatuation has grown even stronger over the years.

    I believe she is an INFP. Kate is famously introverted and reclusive, and she comes across as very romantic and idealistic, so the INF-part seems likely. The J/P dimension is open to debate, but to my mind, she demonstrates far stronger use of Fi than Fe, both in her music and in person (I met her once, briefly, at a record signing).

    Oh, and she is surely an Enneagram 4w5.

    Opinions?

    And if I only could,
    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    - Kate Bush

    She seems to like an ENFJ.

    I love Kate!


    I'm gonna say she's a ISFP. Very ethereal and spooky. Very artistic.

    I'm for either ISFP or INFJ. Not sure. Those two types looks similar at first sight sometimes.

    She seems INFP. Her lyrics are very abstract.

    Kate Bush! I love her!

    People normally type her as INFP, but I don't agree with it by the interviews I've seen and her music in general. I'd go with INFJ. I don't remember where I read one interview with her... she was describing the way she worked, it was very J-ish, and she took a quiet leadership role (an INFJ trait, mostly). Her music for me suggests more Ni-Fe (writing songs in the perspective of others is VERY Ni-Fe).

    @Rosabel I think so too. I know she's often typed infp, but I kind of think of her and Trent Reznor having more in common in regards to their working method, which I attribute to INXJ...then again he's sometimes typed ISFP.
    It's funny... no one seems to think INFJs make musicians, yet it's something so many INFJs are very passionate about.
    The Celebrity types only lists Leonard Cohen (I agree), George Harrison (don't know much about him) and Marilyn Manson ( I read his autobiography and I just don't understand this claim) as far as INFJ musicians go. No women. Which is peculiar as the female to male ratio is what it is.
