    I say John Mayer's ENFP.
    His lyrics never seemed very N to me, and the music itself is much more about the notes themselves and being immersed in the experience rather than being "transcendent," I don't see a lot of "big picture" thinking in how a song holds itself together structurally.

    I honestly haven't read much on the guy, but I would first look at ISFP.

    Dave is IXFP. Definitely I and F. I go back and forth between S and N.

    John Mayer's an NFP for sure. He's perhaps the only famous person for whom I'll say that he actually reminds me too much of myself in a lot of good and bad ways (and no, I'm not that good looking -- and he's actually motivated). Actually, I can't think of a single trait that we share. I go back and forth on the E/I front, mostly because of the song "Home Life".

    mayer's likely extroverted but not sure about the rest since i know little about him. he blabs a lot about his relationships to the press which is tacky.

    dave is probably introverted and intuitive. probably borderline t/f leaning more towards f and i'd say perceiving (very laid back).

    ?

    I hate John Mayer. He can't be INFP! Noooo. Well, to be honest my reasons for disliking him are silly, but my negative impression of him is strong and unyielding. I know he has lyrics like "waiting for the world to change" and stuff but I actually don't buy any of that from him. There is something cynical about him and the way he presents himself. There is not nearly enough angst. There is no softness and sensitivity. He also thinks he is clever and fancies himself a raunchy comedian from time to time. I bet he's friends with Dane Cook.

    Okay, I just looked it up and the results are tainted by the fact that Jessica Simpson dated both of them but I just bet they are. And saying "Dane Cook" is about as close as I come to profanity. Oh I just know I'm being unfair cuz I don't know anything about John Mayer at all, I just know I don't like him.

    I'd say with about 99% certainty that Dave Matthews is an ISFP.

    Explanation -

    I - He would spend hours alone as a child, just thinking, and often expressed his inner struggles through music. He was also naturally afraid of performing, but excelled at it obviously with time.

    S - Fits the mold of Sensing perfectly, as he is very much focused on the here and now and is known for his sensate expression in performances.

    F - Clearly a feeler, Dave's lyrics and personality indicate that he feels intense emotions on the inside. He is driven to find the pure and ideal.

    P - Definitely a perceiver, as he does not prefer a structured environment at all and did not excel in the education system.

    ISFP Profile
    Read the top section of that, and it is a perfect explanation of Dave's personality.

    Finally, I am an ISFP myself and have always closely identified with Dave's music in a profound way.

    I'm inclined to agree with you now. Used to think NF, but was probably seeing a lot of tert Ni.
