    Default The 'big three' classical composers

    Bach, Mozart and Beethoven are often regarded as the three giants of classical music (the umbrella term, not the period per se). Yeah, they're long gone but it's just for fun, so what do you think? My guesses:

    Bach- INTx
    Mozart- ENFP
    Beethoven- INxJ

    I can't say anything as I don't know enough about them. However, I could agree on Mozart: it does have a sort of ENFP-style.

    What does an "ENFP" style sound like?
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I was waiting for somebody to ask that.

    By "ENFP style", I don't meant that ENFPs will all play similar tunes, but that it has an Ne-like playfulness and jumping-about nature. I don't know if he was ENFP, but, judging by his music, he could have been.

    Does ESFP sound significantly different? Or ISFP?

    No, not really. I guess we could also add those to the list of possibilities. I just don't see him as an INTJ or something of the sort, though: we need less serious types for him.

    Wagner is thought to be an INTJ; his work definitely is glorious, but I guess "fun and airy" would not fit him as well. Lol.

    Mozart had spliced together different styles and melodies that wouldn't normally have worked, but such was his genius that it did. He (probably) absorbed many influences from his tour. Most likely Ne. He also loved partying and the like. He was obviously a Fi-user, if you've read any quotes.

    I can see Ti and Si for Bach so I'm heading towards INTP for him.

    Not too sure on Beethoven. He was supposedly cold around people, stubborn and difficult to get along with. His music reveals his deep emotional side; Fi. More likely INTJ on this note.

    I can see Wagner as INTJ. For what it's worth, Chopin was most likely IxFP.

    If I had any ability in reading and writing music, and I decided to become a composer, I think my music would be more similar to Wagner's than to Mozart's. Maybe a similar Fi?

    Feelers can also be cold, stubborn, and difficult to get along with.
