    I've heard a few people say hes an INTP though i think he is actually an INxP
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    Definatly N cause he went on about how he tried to copy the beautiful sounds in his head he heard when stoned.

The main interview I'm thinking of was unfortunately in a reputable Australian broadsheet magazine which I can find no links to (the magazine article, not the broadsheet). In it he mentioned that he "sees" music. It takes an almost visual form, which helps him identify what's appropriate and what isn't. I think he said that he'd wondered if he had some form of autism because of that. I wish I could quote directly/exactly, but I read the magazine about 2 years ago and have subsequently lost it in one of my many moves. When I read it, though, I thought "Sensor" right away. Then I thought "Fucking MBTI is taking over my life, this is a problem".

    Consider also his penchant for quirky bit-characters in movies. That in itself doesn't prove anything, but I consider it a more likely hobby of an ISFP than an INTJ. He even played a wacky inventor in Mystery Men. A character entirely lacking in gravitas, and certainly a backward step compared to some of his other roles. And his love-affair with boots? Doesn't seem like an INTJ passion to me.
    Nice. Thanks for sharing this chunk. This thread is breaking a lot of boundaries in my mind, as far as "oh man, only xnxxs can be really creative introvert-types" types of thoughts.

    tom waits- i can see isfp. a lot of the avant-garde sound at least on the early records comes from the guitarist marc ribot. and the texture of the records, their sound, is really what makes it work.

    i can see billy corgan as an enfj too. Fe Ni Se sounds more right than Fi Ne Si and more right than Ni Fe Ti. also the controlling nature, the sound of smashing pumpkins records, the lyrical epiphanies, the extremely volatile relationship squabbles within the band.

    do tell more about leonard cohen. why infp?

    and why do people see beck as an intp instead of an infp? sea change? mutations? scientology?

    Yes, my favorite part of posting--explaining my thoughts rationally.

    Regarding Beck, I had a mental block in my head, an assumption for the longest time that the intp could not be as emotional as the infp. It took some venturing out of my cave to meet some new people to find that this is not true at all. And some watching youtube videos.

    What might make him seem like an infp: he is very security/family-driven (YouTube - Beck on a new label (NRK Lydverket)). Despite this, as the next paragraph will explain, these feelings aren't bound by type.

    Why my conclusion is that he is intp: his mouth is open nearly all time and there's a certain detachment he has to the music he makes (YouTube - Beck - Interview MV - "I just get in and let the music out. I don't really think about it." 0:50). Though in the same interview, the way in which he acknowledges his band in the crowd (as his "family" if I remember correctly) which tells me his Fe is very developed.

    I only gazed over the mention of scientology on his wikipedia and his association with them, but I'd guess his reasoning is to have that blanket/illusion of security, detached as he is.

    Harry Nilsson, infp, has been another strange study for me, too. His songs are about life, death, humanity, philosophy, psych., the mind - all enveloped in the fog that is his voice. I see his emotions as an unusually powerful embodiment of his striving for knowledge and universal understanding rather than earthly love, whereas Beck uses his logic to endlessly search for security, family and love. Because their strengths are so strong in their detachments, they are also their weaknesses... which makes for good entertainment. Comparing the two of them helps expose, I think, what is and has been so unusually alluring about them for a lot of people.

    I've recently been listening to music from John Ondrasik from Five for Fighting. Love his music. I don't know anything about the guy personally, but his songwriting seems very INFPish to me.

    [YOUTUBE="2SjVUY13ezo"]Portishead - The Rip[/YOUTUBE]

    "As she walks in the room
    Scented and tall
    Hesitating once more
    And as I take on myself
    And the bitterness I felt
    I realise that love flows

    Wild, white horses
    They will take me away
    And the tenderness I feel
    Will send the dark underneath
    Will I follow?

    Through the glory of life
    I will scatter on the floor
    Disappointed and sore
    And in my thoughts I have bled
    For the riddles I've been fed
    Another lie moves over

    Wild, white horses
    They will take me away
    And the tenderness I feel
    Will send the dark underneath
    Will I follow?

    Wild, white horses
    They will take me away
    And the tenderness I feel
    Will send the dark underneath
    Will I follow?"

    "I can't understand myself anymore.
    But I'm still feeling lonely,
    Feeling so unholy...
    And this loneliness,
    Just won't leave me alone..."

    "Now that we've chosen to take all we can
    This shade of autumn stale bitter end
    Years of frustration lay down side by side..."

    [YOUTUBE="EpqhMWxGdp0"]Portishead - Mourning Air[/YOUTUBE]
    "How can I be, all I want to be,
    When all I want to do is strip away these stilled constraints
    And crush this charade, shred this sad, masquerade"

    Beth Gibbons sounds like an intp in her only youtube interview. So do her two bandmates in the more recent one. She believes in ufos, but not god. cool.
