    Default INFJ Musicians



    Basically, he says that INFJ musicians:

    - Go for profound/deep expression in their music; the meaning and message
    - Tend to be very creative
    - Aren't very graceful in the physical world; won't be great dancers or dynamic performers
    - Are hyperaware of the feelings of others around them and they will try to affect those feelings

    Famous ones he says are INFJs are:
    RZA (Wu-Tang Clan)
    Tori Amos
    Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails)
    Layne Staley (Alice In Chains)
    Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac)
    Mindy Gledhill
    Tegan Rain Quin (Tegan and Sara)
    Pete Townshend (The Who)
    Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue)
    Yanni
    Jessie Baylin
    Marilyn Manson
    George Harrison (The Beatles)
    Lisa Loeb
    Bill Ward (Black Sabbath)
    Peter Gabriel
    Leonard Cohen
    Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)
    Roland Orzabal (Tears for Fears)
    Ali Handal
    Kara Shaw
    Annie Clark (St. Vincent)

    Do you think these things are accurate?

    Taylor Swift is an INFJ musician! It may not seem like it at first, but I could go on for days about it! So is Gerard Way, the lead singer of My Chemical Romance.

    I would say that sounds accurate to me. I am much less interested in performance art than I am in affecting people, whether through creating effective musicians, or by creating an atmosphere, finding points of commonality to connect with an audience or getting across a message or create a shared feeling. That third one is also true. I kind of know my limitations there...

    I don't know if it is true of other INFJs, but if it is something I am really passionate about, I think I would prefer to be in charge of the direction things go or make choice about content, even though I don't mind suggestions for execution. However, don't know if something is wrong with me specifically or not, but I find that I am more interested in the effect music can have on people's identity or thinking than I am actually passionate about music itself. I find at the end of the day, I enjoy being alone with my thoughts or talking with someone, even if there is music I could listen to and enjoy. It seems too solitary somehow though, especially with headphones in. I might enjoy sharing the experience with someone, but rarely spend a lot of time listening to music alone, which is really something that I have to work on, especially to be more informed and educated myself.

    Trent Reznor = INFP

    Some other INFJ musicians include Morrissey, Billy Corgan and Thom Yorke.

    As far as Romantic composers go, I think that Antonín Dvořák was an INFJ, but I'm unconvinced that any others were.

    I have posted some of his music around the forum but you can always look it up on YT.

    INFJs. Record-setting athletes. Who knew?

    Layne Staley - ISFP
    Marilyn Manson - xNTP (most people disagree with me on this one)
