    Default Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy Soundtrack dude)

    I've been thinking recently that Nobuo Uematsu looks a bit like Carl Jung - I thought he might be INTj, ENFp or some Beta type - so really I have no idea. I think it's interesting that tcaudilllg type Jung as ENFp or whatever it was - not sure how plausible that is though.

    If he is legitimately LII, he's very very intuitivesubtype.
    I do not know if a real LII could deal with the level of emotion he uses in his life, for his job.

    as a creative function would suite him well, stereotypically.
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    Hmm...I don't really know much about him. I've seen him in an interview about Advent Children the film, and I couldn't make much of it.

    I suppose he could be INFp or something.

    is the most obvious aspect of his music, imo. He's really big on 's rousing, swelling sounds.

    Ive never see him before now, and sans VI, he always felt something like an ISFp or some such to me. However, I am unsure.

    I wish I could see his hair, eyes and jaw line better. Here is something... not great ... but a new perspective:



    He almost seems like an ISFp 4w3 or something similar.

    : dramatic embellishments; high, wailing sounds; manipulating sound quality to create a wrenching effect; dramatic melodies that are largely independent of chord structure; imitation of sounds (of human voice, laughter, animals, etc.)

    I would guess he's an alpha introvert probably, but I haven't seen any interviews or whatever.

    imo is stuff like Masuda Toshio (also did the Naruto soundtrack).



    This guy in contrast really loves his broken chords, and has a much less "big", swelling kind of a sound than Nobuo Uematsu.

    Another videogame composer is Kumi Tanioka, imo.

    The track you posted sounds kinda boring and talentless, maybe you can post a better example, but ok I can kinda see what you're talking about. This track kinda fits more of the style you posted, but it doesn't necessarily have "slow broken chords" and is obviously more interesting . I think Uematsu's music could be slower and drawn out but he makes it a little faster with sudden embellishments, yet I think there's some clarifying that needs to be done between and with fair examples.

    Also my other post:
    This music can be considered in a similar manner. It has a beautiful melody and broken slow chords, in my opinion.

    I tend to dislike music that's just dramatic. There was this track that came out from the new WoW and everyone got uppity about it, but it had really zero melody or anything new about it, it just sounded dramatic and for serious lack of better word "epic." Uematsu's music along with other game composers like Mitsuda and Kondo are definitely better since they seem to last in people's minds.

    I would love to see this legendary man get typed.

    No doubt in my mind that Uematsu's main concern when writing music is the emotion (Fe).
    ENFj, ISFp, ENFj, INFp.

    He's inspired by the likes of Elton John and Celtic music. For "One Winged Angel", he used "Purple Haze" as an inspiration.
