    Default Bands and MBTI

    I'm kind of curious how you guys might "type" a particular band's musical style.

    I was listening to Animal Collective the other day, and some of my friend's were discussing their music while we listened. My friend said, "Music like this gives me so much hope for humanity. It's funny though, you listen to it and think they are super intellectual. But I watched an interview with them and they basically said they just did what felt right and sounded good." However, something about the band made me think: ISFP. The way of feeling the music, and sensing what fits right. Also, how it has a way of resonating on something unexplainable and deeper, without the analysis and full penetration. It's more of a pulse. And the music is alive and new, fresh, etc. While wielding that flower power-ness of the ISFP heart.

    But anyways, I thought this could be an interesting place to discuss bands and what "type" their music comes off as.

    I was just thinking this the other day. Or how certain songs can be typed.

    My opinions:

    Pink Floyd: INxP
    Beatles: ENFJ
    Aerosmith: ENFP
    Doors: ENTP

    there's a thread on this already?
    "I'd tell all my friends but they'd never believe me
    They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely
    I'd show them the stars and the meaning of life
    They'd shut me away..."

    This thread's about how bands are typed and the other's about specific bands' types. Or that's what I got anyway...

    Yeah, Korn's lyrics are Fi-dom to the core. Just an unhealthy, negativistic brand of Fi.

    I assume we're discusing lyrics rather than music?
