    Default What kinds of music do INT- types listen to?

    I'm an INTJ. I feel that my personality steers my musical preferences.

    As I am typing this, I am listening to an Enya album. I think that she is an introvert's musician.

    I am embarassed to admit it, but I actually enjoy Yanni and Kitaro.
    Ask most people, and they will say that these artists are like the guys who make elevator music.

    I also enjoy classical chamber music. And twentieth-century symphonies.

    But what is puzzling is my fascination with "Pink Floyd" and "U2" and other rockers. Floyd makes a little sense, but not the others.

    I refuse to listen to (most) rap music as well as most (other than the classics, like Cash) country. IMO, rap is like polka, too silly to take seriously. And a lot of country is just plain hokey.

    What types of music fit you as an INT~?

    I don't see what's so important about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. It's just more people to declare war on.

    Mind in a Box - industrial
    Spirilalianz - progressive/psy /electronic/
    Native Radio - cyberpunk (?) (I call them "The INTj project")
    Hofoku Sochi - IDM (Intelligent Dance Music)
    Atmos - progressive /electronic/



    They pick up the more serious sounding tunes, groups, projects from any musical style and they prefer them over the more easy listening tunes. Generally they don't have problems listnening to dry, cold, unemotional and not very melodic music (Native Radio is a brutal example).

    edit: OMG it comes that everybody in the list is from .de

    Pretty accurate obsevations , I'll only add that INTx's prefer more subtle melodies instead of too straightforward/screaming/catchy ones, also a track with mystic atmosphere will definitely appeal to INTx's. Tracks with many layers and slow, but massive development are also greatly appreciated, basicly those type of tracks, in which you can always find something new.
    As for nationalities I'd say that german and swedish producers are overwhelmingly superior in producing music for these types.
    Btw I'm talking for electronic music.

    Just a few examples:

    Antix - Twin Coast Discovery



    I think this album is a must have for every INTx (and for everyone, who likes electronic music). The only word, which I can say about it is perfection - everything is crafted with such attention to the smallest details, that it's hard to believe that it's man made music.


    X-Dream - Irritant



    Now that's an example of "dry, cold, unemotional and not very melodic music"...almost machine's music. I know some people who describe it as "pointless clacking and scratching" the first time when they listened to it...

    I have often been called a classical music snob, which I am not going to deny being. I am very picky about the music I listen to... I also like the classic prog bands, e.g. Rush, Yes and the more modern prog bands like Dream Theater et cetera. I like complex music (technical, odd time signature changes, counterpoint things like that), like in Metropolis by Dream Theater. Where John plays a Bsus2 then a couple of octaves then he plays a E5 D5/A Csus2 the time signatures for that little part goes from 6/4 to 5/8 to 6/4 to 10/16(I think that is right) and in another spot(beginning of the Instrumental section) it goes 5/8 to 6/4 to 12/16 to 13/8. I also, as you can see, analyze all the music that I am listening to. Do any other INTjs or INTps do this?

    I like prog rock and jazz; classical's great too if I bother to get into it.

    INTJ

    i listen to heavy metal (marylin manson, rob zombie, rammstein, system of a down).

    starting trance. listen to rock like peter gabriel, weird al, vanessa mae, some vivaldi.

    i'm working on a theory that i listen to music with a certain sound and beat to match the brainwave in my head. the odd thing is, i get used to the music, using up it's value. i change every few months. like i used to get tranced out with trance. now it's just another beat.

    "ntj theme song: "Headstrong" by Trapt"

    I don't know about that.

    People I know call me hard-headed, but I think that song is more about the will power of the individual more than it is about stuborness.

    I don't particularly like the song either.

    Ravel. Maurice Ravel.

    I'm a piano concerto junkie. I absolutely love the Prokofiev 2nd (this is more hard-core than any pop or rock song you will ever listen to; the first movement is about suicide), the Ravel 2nd (it has the greatest introduction ever composed, ever), and the light but crystal clear Moszkowski concerto (for when I'm feeling happy.) I'm thinking about entering a concerto competition with the 1st and 2nd of Ravel.

    I love ELP, a 70's band who has alot of classical influences. They have a great pianist.

    Basically, I like any music that oozes power and that has chords like stacked 5ths and 4ths, sus2/4, and unnamable chords. I use a ninth minus the 3rd and 7th alot in the works I "compose".

    Type preferences? Perhaps...but you will always find variances within an individual type.

    You can name just about any chord it just might look a bit odd. Like a chord that has the notes c f a e b d a#(I am not saying this chord will sound good) could be called a Fmaj13+11/C, Fmaj7add6+11/C, Fmaj7add6b5/C, Bbmaj7+11b9/C, Bbmaj7b9b5/C, E7sus4+11b9/C, E7sus4b9b5/C, E7sus4b13+11b9/C, E7sus4+11b9+5/C I think those are all the possibilities for that chord.
    I use a ninth minus the 3rd and 7th a lot in the works I "compose".
    If a chord lacked a 3rd and 7nt, say you have A E B in the chord, it would be not be an Am9 but an Asus2.

    They are called CHORDS, well actually they are all the same chords since I just took 7 random notes and then analyzed all the possible chord names that those notes could correspond to. I have no secret location I live on planet PSR B1257+12-C( I really live in Punta Gorda).

    Default strange

    i'm INTJ - but i like a broad spectrum of music. it ranges from classical to ethnic, jazz and big band, some pop music, some rock...

    my taste in music does have some general rules - i tend to like music that is expressive of something, either a mood or an idea or a feeling, or is fresh in some way. i hate songs that are replicates, without any attempt at the craft at all. i find those extremely irritating, no matter how popular the songs are.

    I'm Ne-Intj and thats crazy because listent to all three of the bands you mentioned above. Usually, I don't focus on bands, but on specific songs I like. I am very picky when it comes to music--most country is complete bull to me. Why would someone listen to anything so awful?! My brother is INTp and he is very critical of all music. When he hears a note which is even slightly off he complains about it. We listen to completely diffent stuff--looking at music from an INTx perpective seems pointless to me.
