    Default The Beatles?

    I was just watching some clips of their rooftop concert and the promo film for the song 'Something' and was struck by how each Beatle had his own very strong and distinct personality.

    George was intense, deep and quiet (dom Fi, I think), Paul was so passionate and enthusiastic (dom Fe), John was obviously the intellectual one (Te?), and Ringo was sort of the 'grounding' clown/fool archetype (not sure of his type, but he was sure good with the drums!). I think this balance of personalities has something to do with their immense appeal, apart from their musical brilliance.

    What do you guys think their types might be?

    YouTube - Beatles - Get Back (Rooftop)

    I'm pretty sure Paul's an ESFP. Not sure about the others though. Your guesses sounds about right otherwise, although dunno about Ringo. ENTP sounds about right I guess.

    John's an NF, probably INFP. He's also an Enneagram 5w4.
    George is either an ISFP or an INFP.
    Ringo's an ESTJ and Paul's an ESFP.

    John's definitely a NF. INFP sounds possible.

    Paul: ESFP - very true

    George: ISFP (not INFP for sure, he couldn't handle the words as NF would and hasn't use one metaphor in his entire life in interviews, I mean)

    Ringo:... I'm not sure. I'd go with ISFJ, ISTJ maybe. The only guy who wasn't fighting with the others when the band broke. The other guys were composing each in a separate room and who was running from one 'Beatles' to the other playing drums. Stoic and patient.

    Good point about George, but his spirituality made me think he might be on the fence between N/S. And after all he did write Something and Here Comes the Sun. No slouches, either of those songs.

    Ringo I always saw as an Extrovert. *shrug*

    My take is that

    Paul is esfp
    Ringo is isfp (what other type would be giving the peace sign while taking a shit?)
    George is intp

    and the tough one, John, as entj.

    It'd make the most sense if 3 of them were gamma, but John could possibly be enfp.

    Paul McCartney - ESFP

    George Harrison - INFx

    Ringo Starr - Don't know much about his character...

    John Lennon - A bit difficult as he was quite a complex character. Quite obviously he was an N. He also certainly seemed to be a P (he talked about how he would make decisions based on impulse, and how he never really planned anything. As far as I vs. E is concerned, he seemed to be able to switch between the two modes. At times he was very introspective, and at other times was a clown in front of the camera. My best guess would be ENFP, although he could very well be ENTP, or INTP, or INFP. A very tough one to type, indeed.

    I type John Lennon as an ISFP. The traditional "composer" type with finely developed Ni. The lifestyle matches, although that is less significant to the functions. I'm fairly certain he's Se/Ni and considerably Fi over Fe or Ti. I can't see him as not Se/Ni.
