    I know this is old, but a really good post!

    Whoever wrote the "rose-colored glasses" thing about INFPs was looking at us through some

    ------

    I would have guessed he was an ISFP too, but after reading this thread, I'd definitely say there's little doubt he was an INFP. The idealism is too strong - he has to be an NF. He was not outwardly stylish enough to be an SP.
    He was also a vastly better songwriter than musician or singer (from what I've read, actually quite poor at guitar playing in many people's opinions). An SP is usually good at technical skill and an NF is good at coming up with concepts. Sure, both can possibly be good at both, but since he was much more conceptual than mastered at a skill, I'd say INFP.

    I think Kurt Cobain was an I N T P

    Firstly, he was an introvert because he hated the thoughts of being in the public/limelight. He wanted to just share his passion of music with people.

    He was definitely an intuitive person as his songs had deep meanings.

    I think that Cobain was a thinker mainly because he didnt give a damn about what anyone thought about him. He even mentioned that he loved cats because cats usually appear to be detached. (idk he could be a feeler)

    lastly, Cobain was obviously a perceiver because he was kind of laid back xD

    Sorry to bring this back up, but for anyone who thinks he wasn't INFP:

    He totally was. No way he's ISFP or INTP.

    agreed. one of my friends sounds exactly like this. the style of speech is just perfect. does that make him a 4w5 too?

    Yeah, I totally relate to most of his views (that I've heard of obviously), the way people percieved him (the "what's wrong?" even when you're actually in a good mood), his whole kind of style of being. I don't mean that in an obsessive fangirl way, just the truth.

    I also used to come up with crazy stories like the alien thing too, when I was a kid. Like imagening my mum turning into a monster suddenly, the house turning into chocolate, all this weird stuffs. I'm almost certain Kurt was 4w5 too - definitely a 4.

    On the "sunshine and flowers" topic - so agree! INFP's can be very, very dark actually. I know I can be. I can be morbid as anything, and my thoughts are often dark. I have ideals, I daydream about peace on Earth and all that good stuff, but I know it won't really happen. And I for sure do not see everything in a positive light, at all. People that know me would laugh their asses off at that thought, because I can be very negative.
