    Default phish

    trey enfp (7w6? 7w8?)
    mike infj (4w5?)
    fish entp (4w3?)
    page isfp (9w8?)

    still trying to figure out lyricist tom marshall for a paper i am writing. seems N to me, but i haven't quite gotten into it yet. something probably j, lacks p big picture context and is more hyper-focused on details that make sense to him internally.

    ok on second thought, trey is definitely entp 4w3.

    fishman is either an entp or an intp, i can't tell. the acid sleep story, the class clown persona, the beard, the flinstones dress, the vaccuum cleaner solo, the constant nudity feel a bit entp to me, as does his drumming style which (never play the same thing twice) wreaks of inferior Si. he also keeps up wiht trey, and pushes things along in new directions very aggressively. i kinda think mike might actually be a 5w4. 99% introverted, can't imagine him getting histrionic at all even internally, just d e t a c h m e n t. page seems more and more obvious as the easy-going isfp. but so fatherly! j? isfj?

    on second thought, enfp makes way more sense than entp. i don't know why i started second guessing. the ultimate champion of a cause. self-actualization, the whole band gets such an nf feel at times when they talk about their purpose and their goals.

    Mike is def. an introvert; could certianly see him as Ti dom, but it's hard to tell.

    "You don't gotta tell me,
    I don't gotta move,
    'Cause I'm sittin' back here,
    Sharing in the groove..."

    "I walk through the hallways
    Inside my mind
    I chase the backbeat
    Far behind

    Big dude in the doorway
    Was blockin' my way
    He reached and grabbed me
    And this is what he said..."


    Fish I think either ESFP, ISFP, or ENTP.
    I would not be at all surprised if Page was a J.
    Trey can't tell much of anything.

    Trey doesn't write the lyrics? Really?

    Anyway Trey ENFP, Mike INTP...I don't really know anything about the other two guys.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Wow, so Trey actually writes fewer lyrics than any other performing band member?

    Actually I don't know how many of the songs are his lyrics. You can kind of tell with some of the songs who wrote what -- Marshall's lyrics, Trey's composition, and Page's composition are all very distinctive -- but beyond the songs of TMWSIY and Junta I'm not sure what lyrics Trey has written. Marshall certainly does most of them, though.

    page could be isfj or isfp but isfp makes more sense to me. all he talks about is listening. very good at being the glue. behind-the-scenes definitely. seems like a really laid back isfp type. they called him the dad of the band. i get some Se, he has that sfp smile. i don't know, i'd like to hear more impressions.

    i think tom is istj. i get dominant Si. he is introverted and very uncomfortable. the lyrics seem Si. his eyes seem Si. i don't really get why him and trey get along so well.

    mike is an F all the way. i'd say infj pretty strongly, but i considered infp for a long time. he talks about feeling more like himself in the context of phish than any other time/place in his life. he's soooo self-aware/self-conscious. feeling liberated. his whole mike's corner thing and his documentaries and his interviews all feel Ni dom to me. he's got the j uptightness. songs like contact and "the grid" from his solo work seem more infj than infp. i think leo kottke is an infj too.

    fish i lean towards entp very heavily.

    i can't tell if trey seems more 4w3 or 7w8.

    I've been on a Phish kick lately and I searched out this thread, specifically to see how people would rate Trey.

    I had guessed ESTP. The E and P are obvious.

    And from what I know of Trey (and it's not a ton or anything), he does not seem much like an F at all. He is straight thinker all the way, not afraid to be a dick, doesn't care about your feelings type.

    And I guessed S because he seems like a real live-in-the-moment kind of guy, the way he is all about the Live Show. I also thought that since he doesn't do well with the lyrics, and Phish's lyrics in general are just pure nonsense most of the time.

    Despite the supreme inventive nature of his music, I didn't think that N fit.

    Anyone care to comment?
