    It's a guess.

    He focuses almost entirely on his environment. Shoe lips, rapity tappity trashcans, rat under his hat.

    Don't know. Fi dom wouldn't be my first guess, though. My first guess would be some kind of xxTP. And I'd guess ExxJ would be least likely. I really don't have an opinion beyond that.

    I thought intp
    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.

    My old fallback for Waits was INFP. I could be wrong about that. I don't see ISTP for him.

    I haven't seen an extensive number of interviews with him, so a lot of this is based on the roles he takes in films and the odd, surreal, experimental and poetic nature of a lot of his songs.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    Which seems pretty obviously S.

    Your observations about Tom Waits attention to specific environment stuff seems like it's based on a few songs or lines out of an incredibly diverse catalogue. The general trends of his song isn't about the tapping of shoes or what-not (even in the cases where that is what he's talking about, it's at best Alice and Wonderland-level surreal). God's Away on Business? Poor Edward? Cemetery Polka? Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis? Rain Dogs? Day After Tomorrow? Road to Peace? Even the Piano Has Been Drinking is a list of things around a person, but it's really an oddly sad look at a man pushing all his own insecurities out to the world around him: it isn't actually about the stuff he's listing, it's about the man singing. A Soldier's Things is a song that's basically a list of objects, but it isn't about the objects in the slightest.

    Maybe my favorite Waits songs are just so far apart from yours?
