    i tried to lookup ironic but all i found were alanis morrissette lyrics. does sheryl crow cover it or is it a different song? alanis, i think, is an enfj.

    a change would do you good has a bit of a scattered imagistic feel to it, but i could see Si there as well. i don't really see any leaps. she does seem to have Fe and pretty well-integrated Ti. also seems healthy, confident, etc.

    Ooops, my fault for Ironic. Alanis Morrissette wrote that one.

If you believe that, you are certainly missing her intended and clear lyrical undertones probably for a lack of listening to them carefully. (Check out There Goes the Neighborhood for social and media critique, for example.)

    One I wouldn't argue with you on is Soak Up the Sun , written in response to 9/11, and was said to have accomplished her goal to help swing the morale of the USA ("accomplished" as judged by its huge reception and radio time). She intended to write this "tone" of song to accomplish a lofty goal, which points more to NJ than S.

    Others that you cite are, for example, covers of previous generation pop songs, not written by her, recorded for movies that she rarely performs in concert.

    But what do you make of songs that better illustrate her comprehensive library? They surely might still be S types but they are more distinctly different than the ones you cite.
    1) you're right i haven't listened to them carefully.
    2) improving usa morale/cheerleading does not seem like a lofty nj goal, confronting some of the socio-political issues that makes us have so many enemies both domestically and abroad does
    3) i didn'..t know they were not her songs. still, she plays and endorses them. they are meaningful to her or she wouldn't play them. it doesn't seem very nj to sign on to any old project. not very chart-the-course. also... i forgot to mention her cover of sweet child of mine!
    4) i accept your assertion that she can write critical and socially minded songs. i just think she lacks complexity of thought, or probably more accurately, i just don't think she is iNtuitive. i don't think she sees the connections between things in a complex way. her attention to detail is focused elsewhere, her sound, her physical presentation, etc.

    in stark contrast to Ni dom, she seems sooooo down-to-earth. i don't know any Ni dom who manages that.

    She seems like an SP of some sort to me, but I don't really have any solid evidence for that.

    I've seen her in concert and she seemed much more loose and relaxed than most SJs. ESFP might be accurate.
