    Definitely a INTP.

    Obviously introverted and usually quiet, does not do interviews (I) and was wiling to give up first Rolling Stone cover for his meditation retreat. Only really opens up feelings through music (T) (Pinkerton), updates his own myspace web site (INTP) but ironically exposes love letters, childhood photos on net.

    Spent years '96-97 living as a hermit whilst studying at Harvard (INT), did not complete that degree until this year 2005 (P). A bit of a control freak with his bandmates fining his guitarist Brian Bell, $2000 for being out of tune. Went on a sex spree doing Japan tour. Discovered spirtuality and writes crappier songs as result.

    ENFp is my guess. INFp not out of the question.
    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...

    That second photo looks EXACTLY like a boyfriend I had in high school who was ENFp without a doubt. He even wore dorky glasses like that.

    I think his music has a lot of Fi and gives me a Delta vibe, he also looks infantile to me. I could be completely wrong though.

    he's definitely intp... i watched an interview of him from a few years back where the interviewer asked him if he wanted to talk and he just shook his head and didn't talk for the rest of the interview. The interviewer ended up talking to matt sharp the rest of the interview which was around an hour lol.

    Red face

    received new album as a gift, got to see some pics in the sleeve when he was.. looks about 13. The differences in opinion of his type is confusing me.

    After INFj was mentioned I started to think it was plausible, but now INFp is being suggested. I think he seemed very introverted when I met him, almost not seeing the person in front of him... a lesser emphasis on Fe is likely.. Anyhow, i love him forever

    seems more well adjusted in this clip. Overall though, INTp seems to fit better than INFj. I really don't know.

    "At first I felt very strong and enjoyed the challenge of disciplining myself. When friends asked in amazement if I found it difficult to abstain under these conditions, I answered stoically, "It's difficult, but probably not as difficult as kicking heroin". Things got more difficult, however, as my body realized that it wasn't going to get any release for a long, long time. I started exhibiting the classic signs of physical frustration: I tossed and turned in bed all night. I hung on for too long when girlfriends hugged me hello or good-bye (they had to pry me off). I spent extra time in the shower, soaping and scrubbing, wistfully. I even had my very first night-time accident, waking up and rolling over onto my back, tears filling my eyes.

    I didn't make it any easier on myself by occasionally cheating a little, "accidentally" stumbling onto an adult site while surfing the internet.

    "What's this??" I asked myself. "Rate-my-camel-toe.com? Disgraceful! I'd better click on some more pictures here just to make sure my eyes aren't deceiving me."

    One time, I even made the incredibly stupid decision of going to a "pajama" party at the Playboy Mansion. I sat by the dance floor the whole night, twitching and drooling, slightly, as hundreds of nearly-naked women writhed en masse to the music. When a warm, wet, female mouth suddenly whispered in my ear, "Let me know if you see anything you like--I can make it happen," my glasses fogged over completely.

    I seemed again to be experiencing more suffering than peace. I concluded that modern society was just not conducive to celibate living for a single, successful musician. Marriage, which once had seemed as undesirably permanent as a tattoo, now seemed to be the one, clear hope for my coming out of my longing. It would allow me to have a peaceful physical relationship with one person and continue my work in society without constantly having to fight or give in to the temptations all around. I promised myself to remain celibate until either my wedding day or the end of my vow, whichever came first, and set about trying to find a wife."

    from http://gawker.com/news/musc/rivers-c...tar-183414.php

    was going to say more certainly INTp but im still confused. Dont mind me just have an increased interest in his type since i think i will come to a conclusion soon.

    actually, most of these comments by Mr. Cuomo seem INTp, but not by much. I think many of them, but not more than half, could also be INTj.

    http://www.weezer.com/discography/RC.../2006RCFI.html

    the thing that's pushing me to INTp is that he doesn't seem to have any interest with relations outside of his immediate family. This might be the wrong view though.

    I'd appreciate a comment on the Nostradamus comment in the post above mine.

    now i think Ni person would say that in annoyance with having to come up with possible scenarios.. an Ne Ti person would be annoyed because they feel they don't have enough information (having never been married) to give an answer they feel comfortable with.

    my favorite quote from the man was somegthing that was like, dont think about what the world needs, think about what makes you come alive, because that is what the world needs, more people to come alive.

    I love that, you know i think i am going to go put that on my wall now.

    INTj for Rivers... Compare with old INTj stand-by, David Byrne.

    Reminds me very much of my younger (INTj) brother... Same mannerisms, everything.

    oh really? I actually came back to say that it was more Fe polr than Ni ness in that last vid.

    I think he's INTp.. I would love to talk more about him, he's fascinating, and over time and after meeting him I've felt more and more than he's INTp.

    To be honest, I sometimes mistake INTp's Fe POLR with Ni as well... I just watched a few of the interviews again and noticed Rivers' somewhat biting Te, (although I cannot discern whether he' be receptive to Fi.. He's not showing many emotions in these interviews.)

    I'll go with your typing here--you got to see him in person--that's usually a deal-breaker for me in terms of someone's type, i.e. it becomes much more obvious.

    Still, I can't believe how much Rivers looks and sounds like my little bro! It's crazy

    Partial El Scorcho Lyrics:

    "How stupid is it? I can't talk about it
    I gotta sing about it and make a record of my heart
    How stupid is it? Won't you give me a minute
    Just come up to me and say hello to my heart
    How stupid is it?
    For all I know you want me too
    And maybe you just don't know what to do
    Or maybe you're scared to say: "I'm falling for you"

    I wish I could get my head out of the sand
    'Cause I think we'd make a good team
    And you would keep my fingernails clean
    But that's just a stupid dream that I won't realize
    'Cause I can't even look in your eyes
    Without shakin', and I ain't fakin'
    I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon. "

    Old song, sounds INTp.

    sighh.

    The bassline is pretty easy and sweet.
