    At the expense of sounding too modest I think I'm a descent portrait artist and have dabbled in some abstract art. I think Si makes me really sensitive to little details to create the desired effect I am looking for. I enjoy trying to capture the "essence" of the person or object I'm drawing or painting.

    I recently took up drumming and I've sorta taken off with it. I can't believe it took me so long to start.

    I've been told my drawings look like something out of Jung's Red Book. I have Jung's Red Book, but I stillll haven't looked through it.

    I'm good with music and like to make up calming melodies on the spot, usually using specific forms for the melody. I write a bit of my own music, but I can't help but feel that a lot of what I make is modifications on aesthetics I've enjoyed from elsewhere. Though, some of the stuff I play does sound very unique and unlike anything else I've heard.

    I write poetry and short philosophical writings, which are often quite imaginative, at least imo. I've been told I write well for an ISTJ :P

    Nope, not really. I don't really have much of a creative bone in my body. I'm taking beginning piano as an elective next semester though. So, we'll see how that goes! I did two years of choir in high school, but I was never very good at it.

    My friend is an ISTJ and gifted in visual arts. I find she's quite balanced in her cognitive functions and is not rigid or insensitive. Her work is not abstract, though but there's an airy feeling to it.

    The only two types Jung called out for creativity are Si and Ni types.

    It's cliche to say it, but anyone can create art.

    The stereotype of the SJ run world in no way diminishes the chance of individual expression.
    '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

    No. Creativity is almost assuredly the domain of intuitive types, specifically Ne ones, and any SJ claiming capability in this skill are either mistyped or severely overestimating themselves. I know this for 100% fact actually because I'm an ISTJ and this is what we do best.

    Si is like a barrier to these things, you see. As soon as anything even remotely resembling an artistic way self-expression begins to form in the psyche, Si, being in front of Ne, slaps it down and asks very sternly "why are you entertaining such impractical ideas? What are you? A child?".

    As an ISTJ, I have many years of my own experiences to back up the above claims. My extensive Si memory can recall a few specific and detailed occassions if you are interested in hearing them.

    I don't know about creativity, but OP has no analytical faculties.


    Reason: using Keirsey temperaments.
