    Default Tom Petty

    Wikipedia says: Petty also overcame a difficult relationship with his father, who found it hard to accept that his son was "a mild-mannered kid who was interested in the arts" and subjected him to verbal and physical abuse on a regular basis.
    Anyone up for a guess about Tom Petty's type? My guess ISFP.

    He seems ISFP in the way he appears, but my guess would be INFJ. I don't know much about him.

    You could be right, but from listening to his music I always thought he was an INFP.

    A lot of people have typed Bob Dylan as ISFP, and Tom Petty loves/emulates Bob Dylan in some respects (worked with him in the Traveling Wilburys -->so good). Maybe that's why he seems ISFP. I kinda think INFP, too...

    I just get a general impression from the ISFPs I know. A pensive, earnest, non-aggressive, simple confuzzlement.

    Yes, he appears ISFP in interviews.

    I adore Tom Petty's music. I do think he's IxFP, dunno if it's S or N.

    seems isfp to me, way too grounded and down-to-earth to be infp. plus he likes to the jamz too much to be an infp, in concert at least (so i've heard).

    Seems like INFP to me.

    There's a gentleness there. Seems kinda delicate. Like INFP's on the outside usually do.

    Katy Perry is a better example of ISFP. Total bimbo and airhead.
