Just cancelled a series of shows due to illness, no? My ESI friend is a huge fan.
ISFj I would guess, there is that same "repetitious understated development" in music again... with instincts likely sp/so

self indulgent with little musical talent.
ESI. Probably E4.
Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.
In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.
When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.
So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.
Why ISFj? She seems very intuitive to me...She seems to have a hard time explaining herself or what she's attempting to do, using vague language at best, describes trends constantly in interviews, etc. she also clearly has a bent towards ethics and appears more perceiving than judging....just my opinion. Though I very much agree she is e4
yep she's definitely ESI. I always feel super wierd seeing ESIs. self-conscious or something.
She has a lot more of a physical awareness/presence than I get from IEIs—watch where her eyes pan, and you can see she's more attentive to what's directly in front of her; she doesn't look upwards a great deal, nor as if peering towards some faraway horizon like people tend to do when they're mentally visualizing something (you'll see Ni types do this a lot). She also narrates a great deal primarily from direct experience—i.e., "i saw this, felt that, these events happened and it was like…"—rather than articulating her experiences in a more detachedly abstract sense (which is more common among Ni egos).
Couple other relevant videos:
I don't know but I don't think she is IEI or ESI. maybe some Fe polr type, Delta, SLI? I see Logical rather than Ethical - I watched at least 5 interviews and she focuses almost exclusively on talking about her work & her methods, without much sentimentality expressed. in one interview she says she cares more about music production than on building an image (probably points away from IEI.) her laughs and smiles often seem superficial, awkward, uncertain: born of nervousness rather than a true expression of emotion (weak Ethics). I wouldn't be surprised if she is usually unaware of the expression on her face, or of how she comes across to people.
also she says she only showers 1-5 times a week because she believes it's "unhealthy" for people to be "too clean". idk but it's easy for me to see a individualistic SLI saying something like that.
anyway, another interview:
Her level of natural affect is too high for Fe PoLR.
another thing: I find it hard to see Grimes as Static/Ij temperament. looking at her song lyrics, she seems Dynamic, describing reality in terms of the evolution of events, changing circumstances, etc.
the Dynamic description fits her much better, imoStatics (IJ and EP): Statics view reality as sets of episodes, scenes, pictures. The consciousness of a Static type is oriented towards perceiving these separate, individual states, and not as continuous flows of changes.
Dynamics (IP and EJ): For Dynamic types, events are viewed as a continuous sequence, which is not fragmented into separate episodes. The consciousness of a Dynamic type is oriented towards perceiving continuous flows of changes as opposed to discrete states.
ILI might work too
Irrationality, Dynamics, and Logic stand out to me. I don't see how ESI fits at all; if she is ESI it is not an obvious typing.
The mind a killing weapon
The heart an open wound
finally got her album visions. i think she's overhyped. skin is an alright song.
Yeah i downloaded a few songs.... She kinda sucks
sucking on tits in public.
also is that her w/ the potleaf trampstamp on asscheek, or someone else?
my duals are skanks.
hello Grimes, please never sit on my couch.
I could make a few comments about ESIs right now.
LOL someone left a comment that said, "She looks like Helga from Hey Arnold. Nuff said" SHE DOES. i wanna wax those brows of her so badly.
she grosses me out- she could be so cute but she seems to want to go in the opposite direction. mission accomplished.
your duals are skanks. we iz.
she's so gross that it sort of crosses a line into cute. like a kid with a runny nose playing in the dirt. and you wanna scruff their head and give them a cookie.
I also want to add a few lines from the link posted that made me lol : " Her music sounds like a baby voice goo goo gaa gaa-ing over some bleep bloop music."
"Sorta tried to stream her album to see if there was anything worth 'writing home about', but it is the standard conceptual bleep bloop band with only one or two 'half decent' songs that aren't even THAT listenable, but I would probably put them on a mix CD for some girl who wanted to 'feel artsy', like she was listening to 'the new Bjork',"
"She is potentially 'completely insane', ready 2 meltdown. It seems like 'being a buzzband' is the most 'normal, stabilizing thing she could have done with her life. She apparently tried to float down the Mississippi River like a trust crusty homeless person. While many blogspots would say 'that's totally kewl', I feel like we've all had that one crusty friend in HS/college who 'went too far', and you feel like it is only a matter of time b4 they end up dead from trying to trainhop/eating food out of a dumpster one last time."
WHAT DOES CRUSTY mean? The word itself reminds me of scabs and i want to gag.
You'll find out later?:laugh:

"Sasuke is NOT GAY!!!!! GAH!!! just cuz he doesn't show interest in the girls that follow him everywhere, doesn't mean he is gay!!!! maybe he wants a girl that can stand on her own two feet!!!! DID ANYONE THING OF THAT?!?!?!!? so yeah...sasuke not GAY!" - sasukegirl1
The term 'crusties' is also a slang term used in body piercing for the dried, crusty leakage from a new piercing. In the Bath, Somerset and Bristol areas of England a crusty is a derogatory term for any homeless person. The term crusty to mean surly or lazy dates back to at least the mid eighteenth century in Somerset.
