    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.

    Heh... I just had a flashback to my Syd Berret phase from highschool. I lost my first potential gf because in her opinion, "That music's eating your soul!"...

    I want to say INFj simply because his lyrics are very reminiscent of the sort of thing I would write. Not really for content so much, but for the polished rythme and rhyme schemes. His behavior after being pushed out of Pink Floyd also strikes me as INFj. To just quietly disapear into his own little world like that, without really showing any animosity.

    ILI-Ni? I'm really not sure. He could also be Se-PoLR

    The Te-PoLR makes sense, at least.

    Any analysis is probably going to be skewed because he spent most of the Pink Floyd years tripping balls. It's a well known fact he did tons of acid. Best bet is to try to find pictures of him before the psychedelic period--schoolboy pics, that sort of thing. Unfortunately, a lot of the video evidence like TV appearances is going to be from the period when he was doing massive amounts of LSD.

    I would narrow it down to an introverted, ethical type. Likely intuitive over sensor, but I'm not ruling out SF yet.

    A lot of his lyrics could hint at Delta NF values but again, how much of that was influenced by LSD? Listen to the early pre-psychedelic period demos and shit, and the lyrics and music are very much like blues-based bands like The Who and Rolling Stones.
