    Well I've noticed that people in business tend to get typed as J more often. Could it be a J type preference fits the business world better and a P type preference fits the entertainment world better? Overall I think this is true.

    When it comes to acting P's outnumber the J's easily. Trying to make a living out of acting is risky which would be an attraction for ExxP's and a turn off to other types. Also one important skill that an actor needs is to respond to the other actors. This sort of thing is easier for P's to learn.

    When it comes to music I think Fi types tend to dominate music writing. However any type could perform or play an instrument.

    I actually think dance favors J's more than P's, but I don't know enough dancers to be sure.

    Writing tends to favor either introversion or intuition (or both). I doubt there are many ESxx writers.

    Because it is a part of the definitional logic of the people here. EJs and ISJs aren't supposed to be artists, so they aren't. If you are an artist, you will never be typed as one of those, thus preserving the prestine stereotype.

    there are, tho they're a different kind of artist/entertainer. and, mostly an intuitive forum, we're rarely interested in those genres of art/entertainment. sorry new mel gibson flick, i just dont' want to watch you. no matter how many bad guys you headbutt.

    and to say that nf e4 and e5 are no more driven to create an artistic view than an e6 or e2 sj is just absurd. the whole identity/ego complex is built on something so different. or an e3 and e7 entertainer, they are born to do what they do.

    with that said, there are quite a few istj actors. their craftsmanship and attention to detail shines thru. and isfj actors. and occasionally graphic designers, painters, woodworkers, writers, and musicians. in the performing arts (thinking classical music, probably ballet, etc), sjs do better. their work ethic and consistency come in handy. lot of sj physical trainers as well.

    I've always thought a lot of big time players in the rap industry were ENTJ. I think Jay-Z is ENTJ.... maybe puffy, DJ khaled, etc.

    All of those typings are wrong.

    It may be true that this forum attracts few of those types, but there certainly are creative and celebrated people of those types...

    As you know, most celebrity typings are crap...

    I actually see a lot of IS_J graphic designers! Good observation. They are artists... you just don't know who has done it. It's more behind the scenes.

    I see no problem.
    There are NTJ and XTJ inventors. I have known them.

    Art is a P thing. Read Jane Piirto: Feeling Boys and Thinking girls.
    Everything is as it should be. Do not worry.
