    I think the consensus is George Harrison was an INFP.

    Which Myers-Briggs Types Become Musicians and Composers?

    -The data from one research study show a definite pattern in those who choose these professions.

    [All] types were represented in the sample of 136 people.

    The largest group in this sample was ENFPs, with around 17%. It's not surprising. Many artistic people are Feelers, particularly Intuitive Feelers. The second largest group was ENFJs at 11%, while INFPs made up 9.6% of the sample.

    The smallest groups were ISFPs, with about 1.5%, and ESTPs and ISTPs, both with 2.2%.

    Some interesting patterns emerge from these data. Surprisingly, Extraverts outnumbered Introverts 60% to 40%. Intuitives were more common than Sensors, 65% to 35%, Feelers over Thinkers 63% to 37%, and Judgers more than Perceivers 52% to 48%. Again, while ENFPs were the largest group, the sample was slightly slanted towards ENFJ.

    The subgroups are also interesting. Intuitive Feelers made up 42% of the total, while Sensor Thinkers were about 13%. Extraverted Feelers came in at 43%, while Extraverted Thinkers were 18% of the sample. Extraverted Intuitives were about 38%, and Introverted Sensors close to 12%. In each of these examples, the combinations were the highest and lowest in the pairings.

    I can't explain why but your post makes sense. Hmm ... to write music requires originality and creativity. SPs (myself included) although skillful don't necessarily create original works. That is the domain of the intuitive.

    At least one site lists Benny Goodman as an ENTJ.

    Jazz clarinetist.

    Some type Beethoven as either INTJ or INFJ.

    From your other thread - Tony Bennett seems like an F. Can't guess beyond that.

    I think Beethoven was definitely an INTJ.

    Talking Beatles MBTI

    Why do you guys place Lennon as an introvert? McCartney stated on numerous occasions that in their early days they always considered Lennon to be "the leader." My guesses for each Beatle:

    John: ENTP
    Paul: ESFP
    George: INFJ
    Ringo: ISFP

    And by the way, plenty of famous musicians are Js. Rivers Cuomo of Weezer is a consummate INTJ; James Hetfield of Metallica is likely ExTJ.

    There are plenty more, too...

    Thom Yorke of Radiohead - INFJ
    Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins - ENTJ (hardcore, too!)
    Robert Fripp of King Crimson - INTJ
    Dirk Lance, formerly of Incubus - INTJ
    Kim Deal, formerly of the Pixies - ENFJ

    The list goes on. "No famous musicians are Js" is a pretty silly generalization. =P

    My off the wall the guesses that I pulled out of my ass:

    Lennon - ENFP
    McCartney - ISFP
    Harrison - INFP
    Ringo - ESTP

    Note: A Mod should probably change the thread title to The Beatles or something.

    I'm not a Beatles fan, and I've hardly become familiar with any of them aside from Lennon, who I would snap-type as ENFJ, based on his off-stage behavior and speech.
