    Default NFs and the effect of music

    Are NFs more likely to listen to the same music/song again and again and again? Most NFs I know (including me) have a favourite playlist they don't mind listening to over and over again. Hence they make pretty bad DJs at parties.

    And does anyone else experience this feeling that some music is sooo haunting...that it takes you to someplace far away in your head or reminds you of some memory or dream or just makes you feel really really happy or sad?

    That's funny. I'm definitely that way. I listen until I kill it.

    Also, I have my iPod set on random cause I'd rather have someone pick my songs for me than have to choose them myself. It's stressful!

    From what I have seen that is actually an N thing.

    No. No no. I am going to pretend that you are not attempting to correlate listening to songs on repeat with the combined traits of Intuition and Feeling.

    And to the second part, yes.

    I might listen to the same song 2 to 3 times, but that's the extent of it. I'd get annoyed if I had to listen to the same music over, and over again. I have a rare appreciation for all types of music I like to think. Some people say they like "all" music. Nein. Definitely not the case.

    Funny you should mention DJ, because there is a DJ position I am currently pursuing.

    Yes, there are songs that remind me of a certain place and time in my life. Very vividly I might add. I have a photographic memory.

    Well, I wouldn't say my own memory is very photographic. It's okay - and some images I see are very vivid. But what bothers me is that some music I listen to reminds me of places I've dreamt about - either daydreams or night dreams, or both, I usually can't place which. And then I close my eyes tightly and long to just escape this world and enter the song and then I feel sad and empty...it's disturbing!

    I don't think it's because of Fi. My ENFJ (Fe) friend listens to the same sad song over and over again for years and never knows how to get tired of it.
    I, on the other hand, do get tired of old songs. But for a lot of times I do not really care, just need some background noise for my "head-in-the-clouds" mind.
