    Given the language he uses, I have a hard time seeing Sting as anything but NFJ.

    The deeper you get into Yoga you realize it is a spiritual practice. It's a journey I'm making. I'm heading that way.
    I feel this music has nurtured me as I've been immersing myself in it. I've felt supported by it.

    Great music as much about the space in between the notes as it is about the notes themselves.
    In the dingy foyer of the hotel is an old poster from La Comédie Française, sadly peeling from the all behind the desk. Cyrano de Bergerac, it proclaims, a play by Edmond Rostand. I will stand for a few moments to take in its fading gaiety. It is a laughing portrait of a man with an enormous nose and a plumed hat. He is a tragic clown whose misfortune is his honour. He is a man entrusted with a secret; an eloquent and dazzling wit who, having successfully wooed a beautiful woman on behalf of a friend cannot reveal himself as the true author when his friend dies. He is a man who loves but is not loved, and the woman he loves but cannot reach is called Roxanne.

    That night I will go to my room and write a song about a girl. I will call her Roxanne. I will conjure her unpaid from the street below the hotel and cloak her in the romance and the sadness of Rostand’s play, and her creation will change my life.

    See what I mean?

    For creative, risk-taking entrepreneurs, see Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffett.

    For musicians, not sure about popular ones but in my experience a fair amount of instrumentalists will be ISTJs. I have one ISTJ musician friend who is an amazing drummer. He practices hours a day and is technically just spectacular. He also teaches drum instruction. But I've never seen him write a song. I have another friend who is an ISTJ and makes music, but his songs are quite groove oriented -- again, he doesn't write songs in the sense of having melodies, choruses etc.

    Chris Hillman, bass player for the Byrds? Or John Deacon from Queen?

In addition, to be good at music, one must continually practice the same thing over and over again in a routine, and SJ's are great at this. Plus, if an ISTJ can develop their Fi they can be very creative with music as well. I don't think ISTJ's get enough credit when it comes to music. My father is an ISTJ and is an excellent musician.
    I think that the idea that some how SJ's aren't creative is utter non-sense. The fact that an ISTJ can't be creative, write hits, and perform and the like is just I'm going to say it, bull shit. The guitarist from Weezer is a ISTJ, YES I have heard Ed is an ISTJ too, and also I've heard of a lot of ESFJ musicians like Ed Sheeran, Elton John, and Whitney Houston. All successful. Additionally, Brian May of Queen is an ISFJ and Kendrick Lamar is and ISFJ. Yet again MBTI is a theory and I take it with a grain of salt, but I'm an ISTJ and I have autism, which actually makes sense. But, I have a strong Fi and a strong Si, but my Te is quite low right now, but I play guitar, write songs, and the like. I'm taking guitar lessons soon, but have been using yousician in the interim. I will be classically trained. Anyways, I like hard rock, pop rock, pop metal, heavy metal, alternative rock, and that type of stuff and would make music of those genres. Now, because I'm an ISTJ, I can't write a top forty hit. To me it's bullshit. Really it is. SJ's have just as much potential in the arts as any other type, however they may approach it different.

    I'm low key ride or die with ISTJ Maynard James Keenan, and the idea that lateralus was about him coming to terms with inferior Ne.

    Anyone can appear stereotypically intuitive if they do enough drugs. It doesn't actually reflect how/what they think.

    An ISTJ would theoretically be a great musician because of an attunement to music and the small little nooks and crannies hidden in music, while using Fi personal values to fuel their song and executing it through a brash Te.

    Any type can be a great musician though. I could come up with a reason like that for every type!
