    I just realized don't people usually type Whitney Houston the exact same way? Maybe that could explain why they clicked so quickly.

    She does sound like a feeler, from what you've said.

I had the success but I never felt the euphoric 'fame' feeling - I never had the initial sensation of feeling famous."[/I]
    The above (especially the bolded) sounds more 6 to me-- focus on security, and the anxious vibe (using the word "scramble" around the way she describes ensuring her stability. I don't think a 3 would describe their achieving this way at all, and would focus more on winning, being the best, etc.

    It's important to remember that 6 and 3 are connected though, so it wouldn't be surprising to see a bit of both. She sounds more like a Loyalist who is achieving under stress in order to feel secure, than a healthy 3 to me. Even your tidbits from her young life seem much more 6 (indecision, fear) than 3 (succeed at whatever cost, deception)-- things like not maintains a job for very long, and gaining support for her Prom queen campaign through the loyalty of her friends (not through deception or acheiving). Or so it seems to me. I do see those glimpses of 3 under stress though.

    "I wanna have a fun New Year's Eve, I wanna be in a warm place, I wanna have a party, I wanna see fireworks, I wanna be with people that I love, I wanna not worry about what people think, I wanna not worry that there's 'secret people' out there trying to foil me - I just wanna detach for a minute."
    This bit is a little ambiguous, except for the end which is pretty 6. Almost every 6+7 combo person I've ever interviewed has spoken to thoughts of "what if they don't really like me? What are my friends doing (having fun?) when they aren't with me? Is that person really loyal to me, or do they mean me harm?"

    My two cents anyway.

    Yes, you outlined exactly why I was thinking 6w7 for her when I made that post! I see the 3 where everyone is coming from, but I also feel like that connection stems from 6-related anxiety (especially since she's in an industry where she's basically required market herself). I was thinking that maybe her physical & mental breakdown back in 2001 could be explained by 6 leaning too heavily on their connection to 3 that it began to break her.





    What would you say for her instincts? It's still hard for me to figure hers out. People have said sx-dom, which I could see for both 3 and just as a standalone type, but combining that with 6 just seems iffy to me because she's not as classically counterphobic as your usual sexual 6.

    More random quotes from that hour long video:

    "I was very upset by certain things that were written in the press like 'Another White Girl Trying to Sound Black' and things like that. When I had a luncheon at one point with a lot of R&B press I addressed those issues with those people. And I mean, it got written about a little bit but, you know, when you're dealing within a corporate structure and you're basically a teenage girl starting out surrounded by a lot of powerful people you are not at the helm of how you are perceived."

    "I'm a musical person - I grew up with a multitude of influences and I enjoy that as a writer. And see the thing about it is that people know that and people especially back then were like 'look, write us a big ballad where you're singing long notes.' And I know how to do that. That might not be necessarily what's the most stimulating creatively for me, but I know how to do it."

    "Anyone who heard 'Fantasy' with Ol' Dirty Bastard in 1995 knew that that was what I was into and that shocked a lot of people. But for the most part the masses didn't hear it, which is why I put it on that #1s record."

    "To me, the most important accomplishment that I've made - or contribution - is when I read a card or a letter from a kid from Queens or wherever that says 'thank you for giving me a role model as a mixed person because before you I never knew that it was okay to be who I am. I never knew that I could make it and I could achieve what you achieved.' I didn't have that role model. Like when I was a little kid I didn't have the person out there who I identified with completely who made me feel like it's okay to be me."

    I hardly know a thing about Mariah Carey in spite of her overwhelming(?) popularity for the last couple of decades. The only thing I can contribute with a sense of confidence is that she seems quite obviously e3. I'm not ready to write off a 2 wing...still I'm thinking Rex probably got it right with 3w4. For MBTI, she's always given me an ESFJ feel.

    I gotta say that, although I love her, 2008-the present has not been kind to her. Touch My Body was her last #1 so it's almost coming to a full decade without a hit single. Meanwhile from 1990-2000 she had a #1 or more for every single year in the decade. The Emancipation of Mimi was her last great piece of work. But she's still had some bops here and there.

    I really want her to get 21 #1 singles so she can finally dethrone The Beatles from that spot. I like some of their songs but they're so overrated and I'd love to see an artist like Mariah beat their record and piss off a bunch of fans lol.

    I made some points earlier about e6 for her, but just to keep this balanced I will say every single look in this video is 3w4 as hell.



    Also...I miss when Pharrell didn't wear that stupid hat. He looked so hot and smooth back then.

    Are you getting ESFJ 3w4 from vibes?

    "Looking In"

    You look at me and see the girl
    Who lives inside the golden world
    But don't believe
    That's all there is to see
    You'll never know the real me

    She smiles through a thousand tears
    And harbors adolescent fears
    She dreams of all
    That she can never be
    She wades in insecurity
    And hides herself inside of me

    Don't say, "She takes it all for granted"
    I'm well aware of all I have
    Don't think that I am disenchanted
    Please understand

    It seems as though I've always been
    Somebody outside looking in
    Well, here I am for all of them to bleed
    But they can't take my heart from me
    And they can't bring me to my knees
    They'll never know the real me
