    I agree with ESFP. The other three types I could see are ESTP, ENFJ, and ESFJ. But she doesn't strike me as a Thinking type.

    I feel like the J-ness you could get from her workaholism and the amount of control she needs over her career, but I feel like that all stems from more of an Fi part of herself than Fe. I think she's more concerned with the essence of her music than the expression of it. Comparing her to Taylor Swift who also writes her own music (and who I believe has a preference for Fe/Ti over Fi/Te), I feel like Taylor prioritizes much more how her music impacts others. Also while Taylor slides between country and pop as two predefined genres, Mariah mixes together a unique sound of urban and pop music analogous to her mixed race heritage.

    Her Enneagram is harder for me. I think you could strike off 1, 4, 5, and 8, leaving 2, 3, 6, 7, and 9. It's really hard to tell where she lies here. Here are some random qualities I got from her after watching The Lost Interview and her Homecoming Special:

    - rule-breaking as a child; started a food fight in 8th grade, hosted a beer party to fund her prom dress, often skipped or was late to school, worked for various restaurants and usually got fired after two weeks, didn't go to college because she knew her path was going to be as a singer since she was very young
    - one of the things she's had to work hardest for is her freedom to have more control over her career
    - had a very disillusioned view of the world growing up, her grandparents disowned her mother for marrying a black man (thinking "what does that make me?") and knew what it was like to hear white people talk about black people when they're not in the room and vice versa
    - she wanted to be crowned prom queen, but since her school didn't have the king/queen part of the dance she campaigned for votes herself and asked her friends to vote for her
    - will sleep deprive herself to work on her music and promotions
    - because she initially was always surrounded by CEOs and people within a corporate structure, she never got to enjoy the fruits of her labor and consequently felt like she had to keep overworking herself to maintain her level of success
    - her remixes are very important to her because early on they served as an outlet for the urban/hip-hop side of herself that her management team had been suppressing, they also provide free-flow creativity
    - sang showy notes and runs on the 2nd album because she felt like she had to prove something, will now restrain herself or do "vocal gymnastics" depending on where the emotions of the song take her

    Some of her most personal lyrics:

    Fly like a bird, take to the sky
    I need you now, Lord, carry me high
    Don't let the world break me tonight
    I need the strength of You by my side
    Sometimes this life can be so cold
    I pray You'll come and carry me home

    But I closed my eyes
    Steadied my feet on the ground
    Raised my head to the sky
    And though time's rolled by
    Still I feel like that child
    As I look at the moon
    Maybe I grew up
    A little too soon

    And they can try
    How to make me feel that I,
    Don't matter at all,
    But I refuse to falter in what I believe or loose faith in my dreams
    'Cause there's,
    There's a light in me,
    That shines brightly,
    They can try,
    But they can't take that away from me

    Somewhere halfway
    Feeling there's no one completely the same

    Standing alone
    Eager to just
    Believe it's good enough to be what
    You really are
    But in your heart
    Uncertainty forever lies
    And you'll always be
    Somewhere on the
    Outside

    She started failing in the wind
    Like golden petals scattering
    And I miss you dandelion
    And even love you
    And I wish there was a way
    For me to trust you
    But it hurts me every time
    I try to touch you
    But I miss you dandelion
    And even love you
    Anyone have any ideas from all this? I'm thinking maybe 6w7 but I'm not sure yet.

    I recently found out that her father is black. No wonder she can sing I thought. Never stopped to consider that perhaps she got her singing talents from her mother's side.

    I'll put down for Mimi being 3w4 sx/so. The flawless shade game makes me think she's probably an Fe type.

    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    I LOVE HER SHADE! I wish I was as good as it as she is. Why do you think sx/so? I'm all over the place with her instincts haha.

    The J-Lo comment is one of my faves. An iconic moment in shade history. And the Christina Aguilera "no." omg

    I hope she and Nicki are friends again though. Up Out My Face was great. I mean Nicki says she was ready to make up and according to Mariah they did so hopefully it's all true.

    @Chanaynay Definite ExFx from what you said above, and from how flowery and sentimental her lyrics are. I don't usually type people by lyrics but I just don't see a Thinker making a career out of writing like that. And I also got strong 3w4 vibes (w4 because I don't see any 2, and because that could explain some of the stuff that seemed Fi to you).

    This is a good point. O: Maybe all the stuff I outlined could be 4 influence over Fi. I could see this quote she said from The Lost Interview as a little 2ish or 6ish or a heart typey:

    "I think I have a little overblown insecure streak that runs through me, and sometimes it manifests as me being a workaholic ... I just work and I think it's because it felt like I had to always scramble and I didn't have any stability with what was going on in my life. I had the success but I never felt the euphoric 'fame' feeling - I never had the initial sensation of feeling famous."

    Also I feel like this quote could point in a direction of maybe what kind of desires she has:

    "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."

    ESFJ 3w4 sx first maybe. Definately a feeler, but rather Fe than Fi.

    I haven't watched interviews with her before so it's practically based on parts of the videos you posted. More of the first impression really
