    I play guitar. Mostly acoustic. I try to write my own music but I don't know what to do with the individual figures I write more often than not. Also, what I do write tends to be very obtuse and experimental. Spacey as hell, as well.

    Thomas Dolby and Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo might be INTPs. I suspect some INTP musicians in the electronica genre.

    Musicians I believe are INTP's:

    Maynard James Keenan (Tool)
    Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree)
    Johnny Greenwood (Radiohead)
    Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)
    Thurston Moore & Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth)
    Lou Reed (Velvet Underground)

    Not completly sure though. I actually think INTP's in general are alot more interested in music in contrary to what you believe, especially 5w4's.

    Music is the one thing that keeps me out of my thoughts because it's the only thing loud enough to drown them out, this being said, music has done wonders to keep me from getting too detached from this world. And I agree with that 5w4 as I am that.

    Not all music has to be about feelings -- or what I called cliched 'sensitive guy with a guitar' lyrics, ie "Girl, your eyes are as bluuuuue as the sky."

    Other possible topics for lyrics:
    Politics
    History
    Religion or the lack thereof (we need more excellent atheist music; see XTC's "Dear God" sometime)
    Betrayal
    Triumphing over circumstance
    Man against nature
    Perseverance
    The desire for power and its consequences
    Insanity
    Sex (well, we INTPs are very sexual beings)
    Achieving a higher conscienceness
    Advocating for the rights of the downtrodden
    Pride in accomplishment
    The need for independence
    Standing strong against the onslaught of a world which does not understand you

    One of the reasons why metal is my favorite musical genre is that the lyrical content is often quite varied. There are ballads and love songs, but they're in the minority compared to socially-conscious songs (Rage Against The Machine, for example), or satirical, over-the-top humor (some of Type O Negative's catelogue) or even good ol' fashioned songs about Satan (see: Danzig).

    I play a lot of bassoon. I used to play clarinet too.

    I guess I could get into songwriting if I wanted to, but I'm a little too lazy for that.

    I suspect Bowie is an INTP as well

    I'm kinda hoping Bowie is an INTP. It would be so awesome to be able to claim him as one of our own. Therefore, I shall have to refrain from typing him.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.
