    Default Anthony Kiedis

    Vocalist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

    I think he's ISxx

    Some quotes from his autobiography:
    “I’ve wanted to feel pleasure to the point of insanity. They call it getting high, because it’s wanting to know that higher level, that godlike level. You want to touch the heavens, you want to feel glory and euphoria, but the trick is it takes work. You can’t buy it, you can’t get it on a street corner, you can’t steal it or inject it or shove it up your ass, you have to earn it.”

    “That's a spiritual lifestyle, being willing to admit that you don't know everything and that you were wrong about some things. It's about making a list of all the people you've harmed, either emotionally or physically or financially, and going back and making amends. That's a spiritual lifestyle. It's not a fluffy ethereal concept.”

    “It's weird, I was such a survivor and so wanted to be a part of life while I was trying to snuff out the life that was inside of me. I had this duality of trying to kill myself with drugs, then eating really good food and exercising and going swimming and trying to be a part of life. I was always going back and forth on some level.”

    “I think art is inherently nonviolent and it actually occupies your mind with creation rather than destruction.”

    What do you guys think?

    I don't know what type he is, but that's a good quote.

    From the other statements, he seems like someone struggling with introversion/extroversion. I'd think Se dominant before ISXX, if only because the introspection sounds like it came later for him. I think his work kind of reflects that too.

    I've always thought ISP, leaning towards ISTP.

    He could be an ISFP, tho.

    Yes, he generally leads the interviews when he's with the other members of the band, but he seems more introverted for some reason...

    He is so articulated when he speaks and so it seems more like a thinker to me, but at the same time he's always talking about spiritual things and the cosmo and that stuff sounds more like a feeler...

    Could you explain it for me? I'm not very informed about the functions

    I always thought that Kiedis was a known INFP, like Neil Young. Look at the lyrics.
