    Default Music bands typing

    I've got a new idea. What do you think about determining psychological types of music bands/artists, considering their music? I'll give some example:

    Red Hot Chili Peppers - alternative, somewhat funky, entertaining, but still giving us some message. I guess ENFp.
    KoRn - heavy, often say about pain and rejection but it's not sensible though. Rather ISTp.
    Green Day - lately very political, system-criticizing. INTp nowadays, ISTp before American Idiot.
    DJ Tiesto - boom-bang-boom ESTj.

    Now, please, give some other propositions, or correct mine :wink:

    The Eagles - ISTp. They sing about very usual thinks like love and having fun (I mean, these are not usual things for an INTp but for most people ). Their lyrics are mostly really traditional, their music also isn't revolutionary at all (however GREAT).
    The Rascals - So ESFp . My dual - seems right. Let's be free and let's groove on the sun with with lots of friends and stuff...
    Ringside - They sing about sadomasochism but I don't think they have victim attitude. They's sensing type. Or maybe not... They MUST me victims. What about ENFj?
    The Beatles - ENFp?
    Nirvana - Just like Cobain. Very INFp. Anything to explain? I don't think so.
    The Buffalo Springfield - INTj
    Mattafix - INFj?

    This is more genre-related than single-band-related. For example, Gammas like the aggressive stuff like heavy metal, industrial or hip-hop ; whereas Deltas prefers hippie things.

    Scroll it forward to ~5:00 and watch him in action. Do you still think, that Cobain is an INFj?

    Well...I am sure he WAS INFp. These are a couple whys:
    1. http://www.cannanes.com/images/Kurt_..._Jnl_p.229.gif Is this written by a rational type?
    2. When he would enter a party he would say 'Here we are now, entertain us!'. INFj would never do that. He loved the attention.
    3. Look at his lifestyle. A total mess, absolute rock'n'roll.
    4. He would have attacks of anger and fury.
    5. Do I INTjs spray walls, dye their hair pink, wear jeans with holes paint theri toenails red?
    6. He was a lyricist.
    7. I've got a book with his photographs, he really liked to be goofy.

    I also thought that he'd been INFj for a long time (partly because he could have had Avoidant Personality Disorder) but now I am cartain he was INFp. My sister's INFp and I know pretty much about that type (if only she shot herself (kidding of course)).

    How do you type an entire band when the members are probably all different types (or at least some different from others)?

    he's obviously divised a mathematical theorum that seperates the frequencies of instruments and analyzes them in a socionics framework.

    he's completely wrong, too.

    How do you say the Italians are impulsive and chaotic? They're all different! Well...of course -- every band has members with various types but we try to type an overall character of a band. You can't take it that seriously.

    Well...Jimi Hendrix isn't a band actually. Neither is David Bowie. I would say Guns N' Roses are ESTp but I may be wrong 'cause I'm not really into them (and I DEFINITELY dislike Axl (arrogant bastard). And Led Zeppelin? I don't know a single song of theirs. :/

    I love the Beatles! The Eagles are decent...

    The Beatles are most likely Gamma really, so you should take most typings only on face value.

    OK, entertain me then.

    What sort of impression do you get from these two bands;

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEcwF0prnf0 (<-- laughing out loud at the anger)

    First one is pretty chaotic, vigorous and emotional. Being sincere, I don't understand the lyrics entirely... ExFp in my opinion.
    Guys from The Fall of Troy act very similar, but I find their lyrics more sensible. Maybe ENFp~INFp.

    Typing a band which I really don't know is quite similar to Visual Identification. I am able to describe them, but only superficially, because I listened to the only one song, I know nothing about the members etc. You would make it better :wink:

    When you say you don't understand the lyrics, do you mean you can't hear the words, or you hear the words but don't know what they mean?

    And this one was more of a... trick question. You were right about somethings. They're known for their chaotic, high energy live shows with things like climbing onto the rafters and throwing parts of the stage around. But, their normal personalities are different. They (at least the two frontmen) say that they hate most people, don't go out when they aren't touring, and pretty much just stay home working all the time.


    Guys from The Fall of Troy act very similar, but I find their lyrics more sensible. Maybe ENFp~INFp.
    I thought this was the easier one. Their frontman seems to show an... INT-type of anger. I just wish he'd stop screaming.

    2. INTp same victims as ENFj and being victim is not means s&m it just mean you provocate then other reacts, and other should be completely sure in what he doing andshould do it till end. (acomplish)

    3. Cobain is beta = INFp its proved

    Also if we want to get full list we should just check quadra forums music threads and unite them.

    there are 3 levels of sword mastery :
    1.: ability to win with sword in your hand.
    2.: ability to win without sword in your hand, but in your soul.
    3, and the hightest one: without having sword nor in hand not in soul be able to win and bring peace to people.
