    You silly. Actually, I don't connect that personally with his music and actually dislike some of his songs, but there is depth and meaning there, and so I would still call his ability giftedness.

    I'm just indifferent to him. His claim to fame is being friends with George Harrison and Bob Dylan.

    I wouldn't consider him gifted, possibly the epitome of mediocre song writer.

    Bob Dylan - I've thought he is an INFP. What do you think?

    ENFP?

    He's kind of like Dr. Seuss with a guitar.

    Maybe PJ Harvey. Either INFJ or ISFP.
    IMO Bob Dylan is an ISFP with strong Ni.

    Can you explain what you mean and how it relates to Dylan?

    The rest I don't know well enough, except someone please tell me Yanni isn't INFJ. He feels so vapid to me like the musical version of Fabio.

    I would like to see INFJ musicians address the original question with a video response. What do you think, Highlander?
    I think that's a great idea

    I suspect PJ Harvey is ENFJ, though I think she serves as a good example of the (supposed) FJ/FP difference. When she talks about the process of creating the music, it’s all about how to most effectively create an effect. It’s like her goal is to paint an accurate portrait of some aspect of the human experience–it isn’t about expressing her own experience, it’s about capturing a universal experience- and focusing on the effect that portrait creates. She mentions (interview under spoiler) doing a lot of research- reading blogs, watching documentaries and interviews of people living in war zones- to be able to convey the most universal/objective perspective (of some subjective condition) as possible. She's not trying to express something about 'herself'- she even mentions she doesn't want to have songs that sound "too self-important"- she's trying to express something about 'us'.




    [The reason I say ENFJ over INFJ is because it seems to me like she’s got a tighter grip on the reigns of the beast musicians try to capture, if that makes any sense. I think that INFJs sit back and watch- the beast is bigger than them, and they sorta hide in the shadows drawing sketches of it and/or laying out traps to catch it, presenting all sorts of illustrations of ‘it’ without feeling too involved (because feeling too involved is too chaotic a feeling, we feel most grounded when it feels like we’re simply observing what’s there). But ENFJs can jump in there, slap a saddle on it and ride it like a bronco/tell it where to go. I think. And I say all this as someone who isn't a musician.]
