    Default david byrne of the talking heads

    intp or infj? both are feasible to me.

    enneagram 5w4. reminds me of david lynch who is an infj 5w4. but he's harder on the outside. might just be the hair.

    opinions?

    In his music videos he totally reminds me of my INTP brother. He's super
    'I' and 'N' to me - every song is really metaphorical. His songs are very abstract, more about general ideas of what life is. I'd go with INTP.

    And he penned the ultimate INTP anthem: 'Lazy'.

    Btw, you're very good with the whole 'typing' thing I realized he's probably an INTP, after I've read it here.

    INTP sounds right to me.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Why not INTJ?
    It's hard to find something that's not a "performance" in some way.
    Check out this interview: YouTube - Heavy Petting - Interview - David Byrne
    ===========================




    Well, I'm dressed up so nice
    An' I'm doin' my best
    An' I'm startin' over..
    I'm startin' over in another place

    Lemme tell you a story
    Big chief with a golden crown
    He's got rings on his fingers
    And then he walks up, up to the throne

    He's makin' shapes with his hands
    An' don't choo dare sit back
    Now don't choo dare sit down
    And don't choo dare speak up!

    And on the first day, we had everything we could stand
    Ooh who could've asked for more?
    And on the second day, there was nothing else left to do
    Ooh what a day that was.

    There are 50,000 beggars
    Roaming in the streets
    They have lost all their possessions
    They have nothing left to eat

    Down come a bolt of lightning
    Start an electrical storm
    Starts a chain reaction
    Go pull a fire alarm

    I'm dreaming of a city
    It was my own invention
    I put the wheels in motion
    A time for big decisions

    And on the first day, we had everything we could stand
    Ooh and then we let it fall
    And on the second day, there was nothing else at all
    Ooh what a day that was.

    Oh a day that was
    Ooh that's the way it goes
    There's a million ways- to get things done
    There's a million ways- to make things work out.

    Well I'm going right through
    And the light came down
    Well they're roundin' 'em up
    from all over town

    They're movin' forward and backwards
    They're movin' backwards and front
    And they're enjoying themselves
    Moving in ev'ry direction

    And if you feel like you're in a whirlpool
    You feel like going home
    You feel like talking to someone
    Who know the difference between right and wrong

    And on the first day, we had everything we could stand
    Ooh and then we let it fall
    And on the second day, there was nothing else left at all
    Ooh what a day that was.
    (We're go(in') boom boom boom That's the way we live
    And in a great big room and That's the way we live.) x3

    Silly and I both think he's an INTJ.

    He's most certainly an Ni-dom.

    And he moves likes a T, not an F.

    This is quite interesting:

    David Byrne: Carl Jung Lecture

    10/14/2009

    One time Talking Heads star David Byrne is set to join forces with Billy Corgan to discuss psychologist Carl Jung.

    David Byrne has always stuck out from other rock stars. Overtly intellectual, early gigs by Talking Heads seemed more like a pastiche of performance art than a rock show.

    Even on the band's debut album 'Talking Heads 77' the singer was still breaking barriers, writing songs such as 'Book I Read'. Now David Byrne is due to praise a huge inspiration on his life by giving a lecture on Carl Jung.

    The Scottish born songwriter is set to join a host of creative types in paying tribute to the ground breaking psychologist. David Byrne will contribute to the Rubin Museum of Art's upcoming 'Red Book Dialogues' series.

    Also taking part in the series is Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins. After their disastrous American tour in 2008 the band recently auditioned a new teenage drummer and are working on new material.

    Before a new album is completed, however, Billy Corgan is set to pay tribute to Carl Jung. In addition to the grunge-goth icon the likes of Sarah Silverman and Charlie Kaufman are set to take part in the discussions.

    Intriguingly, the Rub Museum have offers to stream audio and video podcasts of most of the discussions. Which makes it rather likely that at least part of David Byrne and Billy Corgan's contributions will be available to observe.

    Billy Corgan is set to take part in the discussions on November 14th, with David Byrne contributing on November 21st.

    I have the HOTS for David Byrne.





    And, I would DEFINITELY say he is an INJ, i.e and Ni dom fo sho, and I would bet that he's an INTJ.

    Be still my heart, he's so fucking awesome.

    i think 5w4 intp, but i can't really tell if he's sx/sp or sp/sx. he feels way more Ti/Fe to me than Te/Fi. doesn't have the same emotional grounding as an intj. and has more of the overloaded Fe fuck off of an intp.

    i think it's an interesting contrast watching enfj jonathan richman. YouTube - Jonathan Richman - I Was Dancing In The Lesbian Bar Live
