    Solid, tough, decisive. On the surface he seems like an ISTJ. However, his lyrics (especially in the early days) are perhaps a bit too deep for a Guardian.

    The former is more indicative of Te (although that is a bit of a misconception).

    The Si is nowhere to be found.
    But sir, your opinion is wrong.

    Absolutely. I agree.

    So thus far we know that he is an introvert and has virtually no preference for Si. Concerning temperaments, he probably is not an idealist or a guardian.

    It has also been suggested that he is more likely Te than Ti (not measuring validity, just frequency of TJ suggestions) and more likely Fi than Fe. The order has not yet been established.

    My bets are on disturbed INFP or INTJ.

    I, however, am not going to rule out xSxP until somebody gives me a good reason to.

    He is absolutely not an ISTJ. No chance. At all. INTJ, maybe... I really am hesitant to give him an N.

    If you look at James style, it seems highly indicative of a Thinking dominant. Highly rigid with the timing, perfectly executed strokes one after another. He'd probably put so much time and effort into just getting to where he could single pick at Master Of Puppets speed, that INTJ and ISTP are the only two who could stand it.

    Unfortunately, because he doesn't frequent the camera, (introvert...) I haven't seen much that really gives him away.

    Agreed. However, I am leaning towards Ni because of his "deep" lyrics stemming from his Ni and angry/depressed Fi, then complemented by his aggressive outer appearance (Te and inferior Se). I don't think he could have Se as a dominant or secondary function. That would make his music seem more like this.

    I'm an INTP, and I get obsessed with being able to do certain things on guitar or bass. I also get obsessed with being able to play certain songs. As a result, I practice them until I can.

    I was speaking more in terms of precise picking and things like that.

    Listen to the older metallica. It's ridiculous how fast and flawless every note is.

    My brother pointed that out to me a long time ago, and he told me about that part of Master of Puppets where they use all down picking. Now that I think about it, it doesn't seem like an N would pay that close attention to detail.

    They certainly could. I noticed it. I just don't think that's where they'd necessarily emphasize their skill. Metallica isn't exactly notorious for creativity. Despite being the first real thrash band... they're still not all that clever.

    System of a Down is practically the paradigm contrast to what we see in metallica here.

    Of course, with the music being written almost solely by an INFJ, it's doesn't come as much of a surprise.

    Ironically, SOAD has stated more than once that they take influence from metallica.
