    Default INTjs and music

    ? Do you have it on a lot?

    My room mate seems to use it as an emotional crutch or something, Fe regulation. All the day, all the time. He even goes to sleep with it on.
    He's such a baby in that way.

    Music comes and goes for me, but generally I only like it in small amounts. It does not really hold Fe for me anyways, and furthermore I don't like most music.


    You?

    I like to have it on as background noise about 35% of the time. I can really, really like a song; become obsessed with it even; but most songs have a shelf-life for me. I get tired of them quickly and I no longer "hear" them when they're playing so any special meaning is gone. I almost never attach a particular song with a particular person and tag an emotion to it. I will however, use the song's original emotional content as a substitute of my own or as a way of feeling a certain emotion without having to actually experience it.

    When someone likes music a lot, he just likes it a lot, it's not a crutch of any kind and it doesn't make him a baby. Come on, you don't even know what it is to like music. Have you even asked your roommate how it feels to like music?

    No. I have very sensative hearing.

    I hear things most people don't, and I'd rather not loose that ability.

    My room mate has it lound enough to hear it down the hall (I can at least), and that's how he studies.


    Now, don't get me wrong, I like to listen to my favorite songs "at the apporpriate volume", but not all the songs all the time. It simply is not me, it's not .

    I don't think most people do this, Diana. I do - I cannot "not listen", so that is why I am so sensitive to it. This is also why I have better hearing than most people it seems.... they are so used to tuning out sounds intentionally....


    When music is on and I am 'not listening to it', it is a distraction, especially if it is cheesy music, or clashing with my mood or goal.

    agree... I'm the same. When I listen to music, I listen to it... it's a solitary, in my own world, sort of thing. Otherwise it just bugs me. My ex used to have to have music playing all the time and it absolutely drove me batshit crazy (and she listened to the cheesiest of the cheesy pop and country love songs )

    my relationship to music. hm well music is a touchy subject to me because it means a lot. I sort of think everything a person says is potentially bullshit except music. I believe self expression through music can never be bullshit. Is that an Fe crutch you are talking about, UDP? I sort of understand what you mean about listening to all of your music all the time as not being Ti but I feel like that it does not necessarily have to be seeking Fe. I feel it might be an aversion to Se.

    Since it is such a touchy subject, I don't listen to it all the time, but I tend to want to associate with people who do listen to it all the time, a lot.

    EDIT: and now that i think about it when im listening to music i like i am really not thinking about anything feeling related i'm just like, "this is cool, wow .. this is just so awesome.. oh I never heard that drum part before, it's different from the rest of the song" hahaha

    Me too. I still have trouble listening to music in public, or with other people at all.

    It's good for working to sometimes, but in those moments of deep concentration, the music has to go.

    As for the volume, it has increased over the years, unfortunately.

    Ok, did you ask him if it was an emotionnal crutch?

    Is he really a baby, ask him?

    obviously no Ti person would ever do such a thing. clearly listening to music is a field which shares so significant a relation with type that Ti simply precludes such an occurrence from ever coming to pass.

    ^ absolutely


    And beside that, if you listened to all your music loudly, it would show no priority. Not every song you hear is going to be the same way - not every song can be your favorite. Like marriage... if everyone is your wife, what's the point of getting married?

    You still haven't figured out when I am serious or not.

    hm... i like music. i like to have music in the background when i'm doing something like busywork. music in the car, and music on my earphones at work, except when i'm doing something tricky or complex, in which case i prefer silence. in these instances, i don't have any particular song i prefer; in fact i prefer my playlist to be random.

    however, if you mean music as in song by song appreciation, that's different. there are some songs that i feel particularly moved by. i don't tend to actually look for them and play them at any specific times, but at this level and in this context, music is special to me.
