    But they do. Over and over again. That's empirical proof that your theory is flawed. Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger, David Bowie...even an INFP like Lou Reed went through a glam-rock phase:

    Kurt wearing a dress onstage: YouTube - NIrvana Dive 01/23/93 Rio de Janeiro

    A lot of introverts are attention whores. I can certainly be an attention whore.

    See, that's my hangup though on the whole Madonna/Lady Gaga thing. Lady Gaga has changed her look as well as image. She is in this "N" looking phase, but only time will tell...
    And when she started her "solo" music career she did not look N to me. Am I the only one who's noticed this?

    I'm an INTP and I've been an onstage performer for 8 years, a successful one in my country too. And I LOVE wearing outrageous outfits, simply because they're fun to wear. Being an 'introvert' doesn't mean that we are unable or unwilling to express ourselves - it just means we tend to focus and favour internal thinking, that's it. There can always be duality, and in fact, an introvert who is able to sustain this duality often does it pretty well.

    Don't look at the outrageous outfits and frogheads as a form of literal representation, but as something more of a euphemism for her bolder artistic ideas. She is purposely doing it because it gets people talking and guessing - just look at the number of page views THIS thread has? There is very logical reasoning behind her wanting to wear outlandish outfits. Wear crazy suits: Win over the fashion-conscious, make fashion magazine headlines, keeps people talking and guessing. Say controversial things: Piss off the conservatives, challenge the opinions of the masses.

    By creating a persona that is over-the-top, almost like a caricature, it sustains our interest, simply because such a real-life person doesn't seem plausible. The outfits are all part of the facade. And building facades is something that introverts can do equally as well as - if not better than - extroverts because they / we have sussed out the mechanics and methodical approach of it in our heads prior to the external execution of it.

    Is this a fair enough assessment for you? There is a difference in being an introvert to being an outright bore, you know? You seem to have mixed the two up into one definition.

    Enneagram 3's are like this. She is probably a 4w3; and they are basically attention whores.

    I'd be remiss if I didn't add this hilarious Lou Reed interview. When INFPs enjoy fucking with people, we can be very funny:

    YouTube - Lou Reed Interview

    What do you like most in? life?
    Everything.
    Is there anything you like better than others?
    No.
    Where do you spend your money?
    On drugs.
    For other people?
    Right.

    I think the outfits are part of the expression of her "art". It makes her and the performances that much more interesting.

    This interview might provide some insight, where she explains the ideology behind some of her outfits.
    YouTube - INTERVIEW OPRAH LADY GAGA [JANUARY15 2010] #1

    "The inspiration comes naturally, but I put a lot of time and effort into everything I do, to the point where I do nothing else and I work creatively all day." The way she prepares herself is very methodical, involving research and detail.

    This quote is most telling:

    ""Being provocative is not just about getting people's attention; it's about saying something that really affects people, in a positive way. All the things that I do, in terms of The Fame and The Fame Monster, is to make things easier to swallow - this kind of horrific media world that we live in"

    =

    What I said, about euphemisms for her art.


    This screams a definite N and T.

    I'm biased, and will go for her being an INTP. But if she's an INTP that has managed to reach a happy medium between introverted thinking and extrovert expression.

    Could be. I had a similar thought.
