    Default Michael Jackson

    What do we think Michael Jackson's personality type is based on VI?? I'm really really sorry, I could not resist...

    Actually... I am not so sure anymore. Not after this picture anyway :wink: . I had my reasons, he does seem to be balancing his physical side Si in quite a literal way... but I really should stop making these pointless type guesses, and sometimes it just happens that VI does not quite seem to be applicable, wonder why...

    I do not know, there are so many type claims, and no way to verify any of them. He might well test as INFP, but a lot of INFJs do, and in my opinion for example his control freakish style of organizing his life and work is much more compatible with INFJ than INFP. The same goes for his shyness and the conduct of his private life - he does not seek extroverted sensing. Also just google some pictures of him, his emotions are of quite private nature, in his songs he expresses his own emotions Fi and does not quite posses the confidence to impose his emotions on others that comes from having extroverted feeling, Ethics of Emotions Fe as the second function, a conscious function of authority. On the other hand from very early on he was highly self confident of his own creative powers. This could testify to Ne being a creative function. I would also claim that musical creativity is more about creative intuition and sensing rather than about logic and ethics, but it is just my personal opinion.

    Heres my honest take:

    Michael Jackson is IXFX. Im not sure if he's P or J, but Im pretty sure about introversion and feeeeeeeling.

    Guest may have a point. He may look like an INFp now, but originally, he looked like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:M...o-be-there.jpg, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:M...f-the-wall.jpg and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:M...d_thriller.jpg.

    However, it is uncertain how much Michael Jackson's appearance has been altered:

    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    It has been rumored that Jackson has used extensive plastic surgery to modify his appearance, although he claims to have had only three operations: Two rhinoplastic surgeries (the first of which he claims was to repair a broken nose resulting from a dancing accident in 1978, and the second to correct imperfections in the first surgery) and the surgical creation of a cleft in his chin (Jackson often omits mentioning the cleft when listing his cosmetic surgery, but he confirms the surgery in his 1988 autobiography Moon Walk). Some critics have characterized his plastic surgery and purported "skin bleaching" as an attempt to hide his African-American ancestry. Jackson has insisted, however, that he only uses heavy makeup to mask the effects of vitiligo, a condition that causes white patches on the skin.

    Jackson's extensive use of plastic surgery has now caused increased concerns for possible cartilage and nose collapse. Surgeons agree that Jackson's nose structure could easily collapse during an altercation.

    I keep seeing on examples for each personality that M.J. is ISFP. I think if he still is ISFP he is a bad example for ISFP personality group .

    Before he got whacked out.


    I went to a class on identifying various type of substance abuse and he was an example of someone that used allot of hallucinogens.
    He does seem like Duma
    My experance with Dumas is they always have a good grasp of what looks good.
    But I think he is way drugged out and does not know what he is doing.

    that is what i was getting at. if there is an inescapable appropriation that is required in the act of understanding, this brings into question the validity of socionics in describing what is real, and hence stubborn contradictions that continue to plague me.

    Default Michael Jackson

    I’ve recently I’ve become obsessed with him over a two-day period...
    Not particularly with his music, but with his life and his general nature. I’ve been looking up all sorts of things on him, interviews rumors...

    First of all, he’s extremely talented, no question about that (seems like all of the talented artist are somewhat bizarre).
    He’s an individual who’s obviously very sensitive, and lives in a dream world, only he had the money and the fame to actually create his fantasy (Neverland). He’s like a kid who never wanted to grow up. he likes to surround himself with the people he is truly close to, and seems to develop close relationships with a select few. I think he’s somewhat naive and trust others too easily, which I believe has hurt him a lot in the past. I dont think he tells the truth all the time. at a very young age he was taught that lying was a good thing to do in the business he was in. Never too happy with his appearance, it seems that after every record he wanted to change something about his look.
    He's a very strange guy... (and yes, I do like him.)

    what type do you think he is?
    (sorry about awkwardness of this btw. I’m falling asleep as I type...)

    I would probably lean toward some sort of IXFx type.

    I do however like "Thriller", and "Billy Jean" has a great groove, and he is very talented, especially with that moonwalk

    IXFp, probably INFp.

    Extremely talented and very productive in collaboration with Quincy Jones. I especially like his funkier stuff like "Rock With You", "Remember The Time" and "Liberian Girl".

    Quincy Jones is a master producer. He did some great stuff with James Ingram as well.

    It's been typed ENFj by Rick, but INFp fits more IMHO.

    I used to love him when i was younger. Its sad what has happened to him

    Sure he was raised to be a product, but I think under all that he’s a sensitive person who’s been deeply affected by that pressure.
    I agree with others that INFp is possible seeing how vulnerable they can be, especially at a young age. If I was affected from the things that happened in my childhood, you could only imagine how badly he’s been affected (and it shows). He also spends his money feverously and irresponsibly; I think he was in danger of becoming bankrupt a little while ago...

    In the first interview that I posted, his gestures reminded me a lot of my own. He’s interesting to watch. I got an INFp vibe from his dreamy posture and perspective of things. He talks about imagination,ect. and seems very modest. You can tell he feels slightly awkward because he’s smiling and looking down a lot. He also uses his hands to talk and express things. Around the end of the interview he gets his sister to join, and it seems like he immediately feels more comfortable and energized when she’s there.

    Don't worry about Joy- she says that all celebrities aren't real people. *shrugs* It's not really a reflection on Micheal Jackson specifically.

    In the first interview that I posted, his gestures reminded me a lot of my own.
    Interesting since BrainTypes says that Micheal Jackson typifies the whole INFP gestures thing...

    Default MICHAEL JACKSON = beta friends, beta values

    Michael Jackson was Ni-EIE. (Same type as John Lennon, Hitler... Hell, even me.)

    Last night, I saw a special on Larry fuckin King about him.

    They were interviewing several people re: his death.

    Michael's best friend, Miko Brando, (Marlon's son,) is Se-LSI... His good friends Liza Minnelli is EIE and Usher is SLE.

    Michael Jackson lived out his Ni-ENFj delusions of grandeur... For the release of his album HIStory, he floated a 50 ft statue of himself down the Thames River through central London. He coined his own over-blown moniker, "the King of Pop."

    Last night on Larry King, his friends remembered him as "focused," and "constantly studying" other performers in attempt to improve and be the best in the world. (It seems that many people would agree that he was.)

    Like some other well-known Ni-ENFjs, he was reclusive off-stage... But onstage, almost an "entirely different person," to quote someone from last night's show. (Similar things have been said about Hitler, and even Freddie Mercury--other Ni-ENFjs.)

    i love you too.

    all of your posts tow the Socionix photo gallery party line... no original thinking... i may be falling out of love, now that i think of it




    think about what you're saying:

    an INFj floating a 50 ft statue of himself down the thames.

    you either don't know the subject being typed, or don't know Socionics... I don't think you know either, (demonstrated ad nauseum by what you post on this forum.)

    I think Michael Jackson was definitely Beta NF. I've always related to him.

    Same here.

    I used to think INFp, but he's just a bit to extraverted on stage for that.

    Yes, I think that's basically why I'm undecided about his type (I think borderline INFp at the moment!).
