    It's really hard to explain why, people usually want all the cognitive processes pointed out with specific examples. I just see him there, I know there are many INFP performers/artists, there is something about him that's more passionate and raw? He was amazing, sorry I can't provide much more insight, he seems to fit in with the many famous ISFPs...like David Bowie? I would say Mick Jagger as well but people tend to think he is an ESFP.

    Here's a list of ISFP stereotypes I stole from PersonalityCafe.

    1.) Artistic
    2.) Rebellious
    3.) Animal Lovers
    4.) Caring of others
    5.) Too serious
    6.) Romantic
    7.) Loners
    8.) Overly Sensitive
    9.) Very Kind
    10.) Pushover

    Do those traits describe Freddie?

    Those traits could define an INFP as well, but not always true. I am not sure about 3, 5, 10 for Freddie, but the other ones describe him, or what is leaked out about his off stage persona.

    Here's a list of INFP stereotypes I stole from Personality Cafe.

    1.) Cry babies
    2.) Emos
    3.) Suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome
    4.) Non logical
    5.) Romantic
    6.) Accepting of others
    7.) Dramatic
    8.) Loners
    9.) Socially deprived
    10.) Was bullied in school

    That is very different from the ISFP list.

    Ehhh...then I guess according to personalitycafe I'd be an ISFP. I don't think that's an accurate portrayal of a healthy INFP.

    That's not the only INFP list, here's another one:

    Hypersensitive
    Self-obssesed
    Emotionally unstable
    Innocent
    Quiet
    Nice
    Non-confrontational
    Day Dreamer
    Weirdo
    Hopeless Romantic
    Perfectionist
    Idealist

    I'd say it's pretty apparent if you study his lyrics (I'd also be curious to learn John Deacon's type, seeing as he wrote a fair chunk of the best Queen songs) and watch him in interviews. His lyrics smack of introverted feeling and extraverted sensing. Look at his stage persona as well; people have a tendency to mistype him as an extravert because he was ALL OVER THE FUCKING PLACE on stage. No, this is pretty common for introverted performers--just look at Bowie and Michael Jackson (both also probably ISFPs). Mercury was Se all the way on stage--he knew how to work a crowd and he fed on their energy; just watch their '86 performance of 'Under Pressure' at Wembley and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    So is an ESFP performer more introverted on stage?

    Sorry, I know you must have a point...is it that I didn't give you specific proof on why I think Freddie Mercury is an ISFP? I am not sure why you are copy and pasting stereotypes of INFPs from another forum. Is your point that cognitive functions are needed to give a proper personality type assessment or you think Freddie Mercury is in fact an INFP? Or is the need to make small jabs at INFPs? I saw all positive traits for ISFPs and numerous negative traits for INFPs, and then saw a counter argument for him being an ESFP. You at first agreed ISFP because of his split persona. Playing devil's advocate?

    It's known Freddie Mercury was very shy but was he shy because of all the fame...I don't know. It's known he was very reserved, private, shy in person and had a completely different stage persona. I am also aware of the difference between being introverted and extroverted and how they are not simply shy = introvert. We would all have to know him better, my best guess is ISFP. I could very well be wrong and I'm okay with that. .

    Depends on the individual but probably not.
