    Default Hozier

    "Take Me to Church"

    Definitely think he's an S. Strikes me as ESTP. Any thoughts?

    I'm having some trouble deciding between ESTP and ESFP. I never listened to his music before, but I like it now, and some of it I actually like quite a bit, which is unusual for me. Dunno, I'll watch some more videos and interviews. I can't get past this slightly Tom Cruise-ish look about him, which keeps making me think ESFP (because on some socionics sites that's often how Tom Cruise is typed).

    He's so hot
    He seems a bit rebellious which is why I think T, but could very well be F too

    I'm thinking T too. He could be an ESTP. I considered ISTP, too. I'm really not sure even after watching a bunch of videos and interviews. I got really curious about it because I found that I really liked his music more than I expected to.

    Hah, weird. He actually seems ENTP with a sensing-esque fashion sense. He's in Christian Bale/Matthew McConaughey territory.

    God there's an absurd number of ENTPs in music. Usually as frontmen, the sods.

    @Retmeishka what do you usually listen to?
    @boomslang true, now that I read his lyrics he does seem to use a lot of metaphors rather than details. Interesting.. And you can be a frontman too

    Very hard question to answer. I listen to a wide variety of random things, and yet, nothing at all. At the moment I don't have any kind of device capable of really playing music. I only have my netbook, and I can't even put headphones into it because that's broken somehow, so I can only hear things through that junky little external speaker. I'm not driving a car anymore, so I can't listen to music in the car either. I don't have any ipods or anything at the moment. So my music collection is nonexistent.

    But I've been 'liking' random bizarre things on youtube. I like to explore the music of foreign cultures. I like music made on bizarre instruments - recently, I listened to somebody playing a lithophone, something like a xylophone except it's made of rocks, just plain old rocks - and I also listened to a 'yaybahar,' this big, weird, THING that sounds like an orchestra, but it's actually just a bunch of, I dunno, metal stuff and round things. I like Irish slipjigs and anything with a beat that comes in groups of threes - 3/4, 6/8, 9/8 - because I'm tired of hearing the same old beats of four, and I liked to dance to three beats back when I had a music collection and I lived in a room where it didn't matter if anyone could hear my feet banging around on the floor up above them. I also liked electronic music back when I was collecting music off the internet, partly because I could make that kind of music myself using nothing but software. I like music that does unexpected things, but at the same time, I do not like total randomness or total nonsense. It has to be sort of ingenious, well-organized unexpectedness, and not just key-bashing.

    So.... not an easy question to answer.

    He appears to be introverted, but regardless of what "type" he is, I love his voice and can't wait to see him live in March!

    Falcarius thinks in his interviews Hozier comes across as too modest and softly spoken to be an extrovert. ISxP

    I think he's an INTP. Hozier: The best vocalists I can think of are female | Music | The Guardian

    In the 8th paragraph (sorry my phone won't let me copy and paste so i just posted the link) he talks about feeling like he's "awkward" which seems to be fairly common with INTPs. The meticulousness with which he writes songs suggests Si, but I still think he's an Ne user. His songs are full of metaphors with lyrics that could be interpreted different ways and applied to many different situations. As Felcarious said he's very soft spoken so I tend to see him as Introverted
