    Default David Bowie

    Husband and I were just watching Bowie at the Isle of Wright festival and as I'm wondering if he's an INFJ he starts singing, "I wish you could swim, like the dolphins". I then say OH, well if he's talking about dolphins then he must be an INFJ!

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    PS This man looks unbelievably hot for a 61 year old!

    Hey, Jenny. I think there was already a topic on this.

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...vid-bowie.html

    I recall saying that I wasn't sure about his MBTI, but I was about positive that his enneagram was 4/3.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    I dunno... I still think he's an ISTP but I could be wrong. I think Mr. Bowie is timeless... I have loved this man for... um... 30+ years. Whoa...

    entj, very j despite changing often, Te takeovers, hyper aware of the categories behind everything, Ni horseshoe tosses and strange wormholes, tertiary Se, inferior Fi ('cept for hunky dory!) (emotional subjective groundedness, relational sense of self, etc)

    how did he write kooks tho, what is the story of that?

    I would have every reason to believe David Bowie is ISFP for a lot of reasons. Let's first take a closer look at the feeling function versus the thinking function and what music plays a role in more. Obviously, David Bowie is an artist and he has always had a passion for music, as I can recall. If he were more of a thinker, the passion for more thinking involving activities which include math, science, psychology, or something which requires heavy analysis to participate in would be much higher. The music "hobby" would not necessarily die, however, the thinking function would have probably put Bowie in a much different field of work. When doing something art related, the better the function of feeling, the better you will continue the job and want to advance, but put together with the sensory aspect of the art work, your desire to even care for putting art work together becomes rather obsessive....WARHOLIC! I actually don't believe I need to go further. I would believe from these aspects alone, David Bowie is an ISFP and by god, does his some of his music have a special place in my hide out and somewhat dark parts of my heart so to speak.

    I actually went to david lee roth's house. It was cool
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    It couldn't be harder than with Bowie.

    I think he is an Introvert. He's probably not a J...
    The two in the middle stump me.

    As far as Enneagram goes, I could be wrong, but I've tended to think that he is the model of 4/3.
