    Default Is Patti Smith an INFP?

    Do you think singer/poet Patti Smith could be an INFP? I know she improvises much in her performances. That sounds like Ne to me. She's a very profound and emotive poet.

    I think she is, actually. And Charlotte Gainsbourg, who looks like her, is also INFP.

    Now that you mentioned Charlotte Gainsbourg I've thought that about her too.

    INFP is my bet. She uses Ne to express her internal reflections, which by far dominates her process. Also noticed quite a bit of Si coming out but no Te. I like Patti Smith quite a bit but god dam her interviews are awkward.

    Yeah. I guess she's a pretty clear cut case. I read Just Kids, which was excellent, and it seemed to me she tended to create quite spontaneously and sporadically with no definite goal in mind, or plan. The way she almost intertwined then with Robert Mapplethorpe and later with Fred Smith in an almost primal way was quite a thing to read. ...reminds me of Frida Kahlo and her diaries describing her love for Diego Riveira actually.
