    Default Type the two characters in the song Somebody That I Used To Know (Gotye feat. Kimbra)

    Type the two characters (and not the two singers) considering the story behind the song (the lyrics).

    The song -



    The lyrics -

    [Male:]
    Now and then I think of when we were together
    Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
    Told myself that you were right for me
    But felt so lonely in your company
    But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

    You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
    Like resignation to the end, always the end
    So when we found that we could not make sense
    Well you said that we would still be friends
    But I'll admit that I was glad it was over

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
    No you didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    Now you're just somebody that I used to know
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    [Female:]
    Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
    But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
    But I don't wanna live that way
    Reading into every word you say
    You said that you could let it go
    And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

    [Male:]
    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
    No you didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    [x2]
    Somebody
    (I used to know)
    Somebody
    (Now you're just somebody that I used to know)

    (I used to know)
    (That I used to know)
    (I used to know)
    Somebody

    The male - ISFP
    The female - IFJ (<INFJ). Because it seems like what she has done is a famous INFJ door slam.

    INFP man and INFJ woman.

    INFP:

    "You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness"

    "Told myself that you were right for me
    But felt so lonely in your company
    But that was love and it's an ache I still remember"

    INFJ:

    "Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
    But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
    But I don't wanna live that way
    Reading into every word you say
    You said that you could let it go
    And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know"

    Just....all of that. The entire woman's part. I have felt this rage. :P

    Isn't te highlighted more of a e4 trait than a INFP one?

    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Neurotic and histrionic.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
