    Default Jimi Hendrix

    Between and seems like a good place to start.


    Interest in psychedelia
    Most of his lyrical music is highly detailed with dynamic characters/setting.
    He had his own style.
    He uses a sarcastic deep voice to make fun of people
    He wrote songs about different people and their troubles.
    In interviews he seems distant, and when playing he loses himself.


    Lived the rockstar life, not sure to what degree though
    He played towering, crushing riffs on some songs
    He also had a lot of loner/loser songs, which makes me think SxE or IxI.
    A few of his songs from Are You Experienced, are characteristic of Aggressor-Victim.

    His music is highly emotional, but his behavior doesn't seem to be. In MBTI I thought *STP. But it really does seem to come down to ILI. I'm not sure either, it's just the IEIs I know aren't as shy as Jimi but still a little goofy-shy.

    An ILI at rest tends to remain at rest
    and an ILI in motion is probably not an ILI

    Actually yea, definitely IEI. A lot of his music reflects EIE nature.

    IEI-Fe ENFP 7w8 sp/sx.
    What do these signs mean—, , etc.? Why cannot socionists use symbols Ne, Ni etc. as in MBTI? Just because they have somewhat different meaning. Socionics and MBTI, each in its own way, have slightly modified the original Jung's description of his 8 psychological types. For this reason, (Ne) is not exactly the same as Ne in MBTI.

    Just one example: in MBTI, Se (extraverted sensing) is associated with life pleasures, excitement etc. By contrast, the socionic function (extraverted sensing) is first and foremost associated with control and expansion of personal space (which sometimes can manifest in excessive aagression, but often also manifests in a capability of managing lots of people and things).

    For this reason, we consider comparison between MBTI types and socionic types by functions to be rather useless than useful.

    Lol, need to type intensively?

    He's more of a 4w5 and he was definitely so/sx. Just listen to his music.

    EDIT: Hmm, wait, I'm not sure about social, but sexual yes. He has a lot of "the one" songs.

    Most likely. According to TA slapping together a bunch of systems like that is a sign of Ti-seeking, idk...

    Could you please explain to me the second part of your post? Is there a theory that you are referring to, or is this a typo?

    No, it wasn't a typo. Are you aware of how types reflect their mirrors? With Jimi he has a lot of preachy songs, and in one he even goes full blown political, in a mocking nature of course. He also started something called the Electric Church(I'm thinking a group of LSD users).

    This video is most likely trying to make a political statement through irony.


    This isn't the song I referred to earlier, but it's a good example, still.

    Thanks for those videos!

    Ni dominance is what's most clear to me in them.

    He strikes me as a shy IEI, (reminds me of my IEI younger brother in a lot of his mannerisms.)

    Somewhat, do you recall reading an article about this. Or was this just a general inter-type description on mirror relations ?

    Strangely, I've never read any articles about it. If I can collect more observations, I'll make a thread, though I already can see it in half the types. But, in retrospect, I think that's what the "mirror" description implied.

    I would have put him between infj and enfp.

    Enfp for the simple reason that in a book I read about him he talked of creating a haven for musicians. The whole layout of the haven he described was EXACTLY like the one I myself had envisioned. Also the way he mocks people using a mocking tone and irony in his lyrics is something I myself do. I also have alot of preachy songs. Plus I LOVE lsd.

    Infj because his music is so imaginative, he was diligent in learning to play the guitar, and he was shy and sensitive. I'd be more inclined to go with infj than enfp though just because he was so dedicated to mastering the guitar. I think the same skills that make infj's good at video games apply to the guitar. I don't think he was a sensor.

    I was stuck between INFp and INTp when I was trying to type him a long time ago, but INTp won out on account of various intonations and cadence in his speech. Along with similar mannerisms/gesticulations to other egos I can recognize. He's not terribly emotive either.
    He's not terribly emotive? Are you for real? What about the raw emotion coming from his guitar? No way is he intp. No way.

    ILI works IMO. Reminds me a lot of my roommate, married to my gf's SEE friend.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I'm going with IEI on this one based on my gut feeling. IEI makes sense for Jimi from what I've heard and seen of him.

    IEE?
    Finally, reading other interview I wave more beetween INFj and INFp.
    Overall apparence seem to be a mix beetween ENFj,INFp and ISTP (yes absolutely), but have you find a clear Ni demonstration into his speaking ? Me, no.
    Some interview doesnt seem Fe valuing, too. But idk how to look a Fe at second position in ego, so...

    Remind me myself when im on blotter (my drugs of choice, as well as various psychedelic stuff, so you see its not especially Ni valuing to be into psychedelic stuff (I speak about various way of expression, not only drugs )... The well know band "Funkadelic" have an overall Ne attitude, and its psyche...)

    His preferred lifestyle seems like nothing else to me but IP, and the way he speaks - it's kind of abstract, grabbing for concepts and images from observations to attach to words. He's kind of sage-like in his articulation. All which could probably argue IP-Ni.

    Remind me myself when im on blotter (my drugs of choice, as well as various psychedelic stuff, so you see its not especially Ni valuing to be into psychedelic stuff (I speak about various way of expression, not only drugs )...

    Oh yea that was a long time ago that I made this thread. I didn't acknowledge that it was the time of psychedelia and people were into it regardless of type.

    Obvious IEI is obvious?

    I think I've realized since dating my new IEI that oftentimes, they CAN come across quite logical, steady, stable.. not really in the traditional overt sense, but then you get a bit closer and it's evident.

    He reminds me in many ways of my ILI-Te dad. There are similarities in mannerisms, speech, and so on.
