    Don't know who she is, so don't know what she's like. But my guess based on those pictures would be INTp.
    ...the human race will disappear. Other races will appear and disappear in turn. The sky will become icy and void, pierced by the feeble light of half-dead stars. Which will also disappear. Everything will disappear. And what human beings do is just as free of sense as the free motion of elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, feelings? Pure 'Victorian fictions'.

    I'd say either ILI or SLI.

    She's awesome. I think she's a good example of a female LSI. Sort of like an emotionally healthier, more mellowed-out version of Henry Rollins. Although I could see INTp as well. (Compare: Bob Dylan.)

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    I don't know if this is going to make any sense, but just based on the photos, she gives me a Maria sort of vibe.

    To me, her music either tries too hard and ends up sounding dilettantish--like a goth girl who dropped out in 11th grade, poured over an old copy of "A Season in Hell" and took us all along for the ride--or else, it's just kinda boring.

    She rode that Bruce Springsteen cover for all it was worth. (Springsteen is Delta ST, IMO.. Just based on looks... I haven't seen interviews, and I cannot stand most of his music.)

    All of this is by way of saying, I have no idea what type she is. Hah. Just had to get that off my chest.

    She used to talk to other rock stars. In her head.
    That was when she wasn't famous. I'm calling for IEI.

    One of my favorite. Some energetic, poetic, and heretic personality is the kind she possess.

    Bump.
    I still don't have any solid opinion on her type. Her lyrics are very -like (but perhaps this is true of a lot of musicians), she seems both introverted and extroverted...?

    Default Patti Smith

    I just read an article about how the Pope chose Patti Smith to perform this Christmas at the Vatican.

    Thoughts?

    I think her lyrics are very -heavy but she's always been a puzzle for me. Someone who I probably shouldn't mention suggested SEE I think on the fly in the chat when I mentioned her some time ago. This is a previous thread where a wide selection of types were suggested: http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin...91-Patti-Smith

    She is probably quite similar to Jim Morrison in my mind (although I know a lot more about Patti Smith): I assumed JM was IEI without really knowing anything about him before finding the common opinion was SLE. He was an individual who was known for spontaneous and "spontaneous" generation of new lyrics\poetry in performances, who went between punchy and mesmerising performances. (I don't necessarily think that she has the same type as JM though).

    Thank you for the link! Im intrigued now as to how the Pope chose her (if it's just because they met and got along) and how typing might have potentially played into that. Just seems somewhat random otherwise.

    the Catholic Church more than most organisations is well-suited to make such connections. Maybe it was because she did some music for the movie Noah (although they may possibly have found that movie problematic), or maybe it's just because she's been around for forty years and eventually got asked?

    I wonder if she could be IEI like her hero Rimbaud probably was ? I can't remember why I thought ILI as more likely before - it was probably because her music tends to be more descriptive and less emotive than comparable people (even when describing emotive events - she is more detached, although she still has great passion and energy etc.). I also wonder about ESI - because that is a typing that often escapes me - although I see no evidence of -dominance whatsoever.

    she reminds me of both Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Reed for some reason ... she ain't super-simplistic, but her music is not my wavelength

    I sort of type her E5w4 Fi/Te (e.g. ILI) or LSI/LII.

    I'm currently thinking EIE. I've also considered ESI. Most other suggestions suggested by others on the forum I can also see the rationale for: it's difficult for me to have any solid opinion, as I've said before! If she is an atypical type (for a musican, or a 'famous' person in general, or for her gender), or if there is that possibility, it may complicate matters.

    Seems a negativist EJ type, but I would go with LSE > ExE for her, sx/so.

    I was curious too, because I always thought she must be the exact same type as my friend. Here's my friend's music video, she looks a LOT like young Patti Smith, and her photo shoots have the same vibe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8uncCqxH_8
