    Really?

    Seems an extremely uncontroversial selection -

    Kurt - INFP
    Courtney - ESTP
    Dave Grohl - ENFP
    Krist Novoselic - INFJ

    about time someone posted objectively

    He was most likely an INFP.
    However, interesting question, what would a depressed Rational act like?

    I think it is possible that he may have been a depressed INTP.

    Ya, I'd say INFP as well o_o

    Night, nice. But Grohl as an ENFP I'll think more on. He's always seemed Introverted to me !_! But then again, I don't pay attention to celebrities much or watch Interviews, so eh.

    INFP. Fi dom for sure. Kurt Cobain's music cuts straight to the heart.. "something in the way"... I can't even listen to that song without becoming deeply moved. He wrote deep, deep music.

    I also am with everyone here on INFP. Although I've picked an objective "side" I do feel that most of what's been said here has been derived from very concise logic, and due to arguments made I feel that Cobain is - on a completely definitive level (no subjection possible) - only I_FP. I really have no idea how the NT arguments came about, as I don't understand how any of what Nirvana's presented in terms of what they've created represents detached, objective reasoning. Overall pretty much everything regarding an F type though has been presented as pretty plausible; this critical look at Kurt Cobain has really been an interesting experience for me.

    When I was younger I was more of a Nirvana groupie for the sake of conventions and just finding a place with the general grunge or anti-authoritarian crowd within Middle School; I don't actually deal much with Nirvana now (I'm 19) and I never really was pensive regarding their musical themes when I did listen to them. This thread has really renewed my interest in them based off more of a critical artistic look than just being into them for vestigial or base sensing reasoning.

    You must not know very many INTPs. Drugs have some interesting trends in Meyers-Briggs, and NTs in general (especially NTPs) LOVE psychedelics and anything that expands their perspectives and ability to conceptualize more and more complex relationships between theoretical constructs. (That means most often pot, acid, mushrooms, etc.)

    SPs tend to lean more toward HIGH ACTION stimulant kind of drugs like cocaine, ecstacy, speed, etc...anything that accentuates their physical "id" experiences in the present moment. NTs are more into drugs that give them something to think about and continue to tweak their ideas about in the future.

    As for Cobain, I'd say probably ISFP, but INFP is possible as well (I haven't tried it but I hear heroin is prone to leading people into warm fantasies...though it's also a very physically pleasurable drug. Hard to say whether he's S or N based on that.)

    He was, however, certainly not an NT.
