    Default Michael Jackson

    I was thinking today what type he might have been but don't know enough about his character to come to any definite conclusions.

    What is the most likely type of someone who seems very shy and introverted in person but has an extraordinary stage presence and is a born performer?

    I would say definitely F and his amazing ability to dance/move also makes me think Se.

    Any ideas?

    I'm pretty sure it's been established that he's ISFP. Surely there will be someone that shows up to refute that though.

    Nope, I support ISFP.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I never saw ISFPs as performers, I always had them pegged down as the quiet, artsy cousins of the ber-charismatic ESFPs (to me the quintessential performers) who prefer to stay in the background. Guess I am wrong.

    They have a very charismatic and outgoing side, they just want people to believe they are quiet and harmless

    ^ISFP can be very shy and aloof but there have been a few of them in the entertainment business. Robert DeNiro and Bob Dylan I believe are ISFP.

    ha... Before I opened the thread, I thought, "Probably ISFP" as my starting point.

    ... the psychological issues, though, could confuse things.

    Why would you say F for DeNiro? (He doesn't seem to emote the sort of connection that ISFPs typically do, he seems to operate in a more detached fashion even if he is a definitely a kind individual.)

    Michelle Jackson was quite the quintessential Composer Artisan.

    And hasn't this thread been done before?
