    Lennon isn't an INFP.

    My 2 cents:
    John Lennon - ENTP
    Bjork - ISFP
    Jim Morrison - ENFP
    Thom Yorke - INFJ
    Amy Winehouse - ESTP

    I think Kate Bush and Tori Amos are INFPs. I could possibly see Michael Stipe as one too, but I'm not sure -- he might be INFJ.

    No way, and I'll argue against this forever. ISFP over INFP though.

    I'd love to claim them, but I think Joni Mitchell and Neil Young are INFJs. And if we assume Bob Dylan isn't a ISFP, then I'd say he's probably a INFJ too. All three have a Ni-Se vibe with an intense need to express ideas through storytelling (like a ballad). There's also a sort of 'forcefulness' about them - that quietly fiery J-ness.

    INFPs are more about expressing an internal experience: a mood, a mindset, a sensation. It's less linear and story driven and more about evoking a head space. It seems like INFJ musicians really like a beginning, middle and end of some kind, but I think for INFPs that isn't all that important.

    Take a look at the differences between this Neil Young song and one by Antony and the Johnsons (Antony Hegarty seeming very much INFP to me):

    Powderfinger - Neil Young


    Fistful of Love - Antony and the Johnsons

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Amy Winehouse is pretty obviously an SP, & Jim Morrison seem ISFP also.


    Lots of INFPs in the 80s post-punk/ darkwave/new romantic music:

    Robert Smith (The Cure)
    Morrissey (The Smiths)
    Ian McCulloch (Echo & the Bunnymen)
    Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) and maybe Dave Gahan also (or ISFP)
    Ian Curtis (Joy Divison)

    I think those guys are all 4s also.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Yes, Kurt Cobain was one of the most obvious INFP musicians to me. From all the interview tapes and such.

    just saw "Searching for Sugarman" and boy did he give me a HUGE INFP vibe! he was like the older version of 2 men I have been in love with, both musicians. It really made me cry for some reason, I have a thing for INFP men I guess

    (mind you I never could stand Morrisey! )
