    Default Yeah Yeah Yeahs

    I actually don't like them, watching some videos and performances I had an automatic bad reaction to the lead singer. but I have to know, are they Beta? I'm also interested to know who likes them here. I sense lots of Fe, something about the music makes me squirm a little, her singing, the explosiveness of her voice like she cares for no one.. I don't know.. (note a reservation-this is my tentative impression from a couple of their songs and I can understand their appeal )

    I thought Beta NF, mainly from the lyrics... it seemed to have the "prize" attitude that a guy should have to earn the right to kiss her.

    I've always been attracted to the lead singer, for some reason. I think she is probably IEI.

    Check this one out:

    I really like them. I like the "kiss kiss" song better though as it's more upbeat. The Gold Lion one isn't my fav, though I do like the "oo oo" parts as it sounds cute.

    It seems kinda ENFj -- like I'm guessing the lead singer probably is.

    karen o is actually enfp, the guitarist is very obviously infp, and the drummer is intp. i'm afraid if all you hear is lyrics and singing you are missing out a lot when listening to this band. they have a wonderful, and highly original drummer/guitarist.

    really? how can you tell? She seems a little too over the top (but I only watched that one video)

    I thought Karen O was ENFp before...but after whatever thread, I'm just reasonably sure of the XNFp!

    I like about half their music, and they're Beta Beta Beta for sure.

    Beta music actually seems the easiest to identify for me.

    I like the song too I just kind of don't like their vibe, the music is quite catchy..

    As for the singer, I find it hard to believe she's ENFp, there's way too much Fe going on. The lyrics of the songs and her theatricality are ways to determine her type, not the quality of their music.
    I happen to like Sonic Youth and I find some similarities between them. Sonic Youth is also very obviously a Beta band with Beta NF themes.

    She could be ENFP and I'm not that sharp at typing but I can tell that the general themes, presentation and the way she goes about things is not Delta and definitely Fe.
    I wouldn't completely reject the ENFp typing but I think any other Fe type is more likely (except for maybe ESE..)

    yeah, my idea of how an ENFp would act would be less theatrical and more like this (I don't particularly like the first one, but it was basically how I would act if I was a rockstar and could sing etc).
