What you people think? What's her type? I think it's clear to everyone she is an ethical type, based on her songs and performances, the way she communicates but I can't decide if she's an SF or an NF. She seems to be an extrovert also and she seems to belong to the Extraverted with ethics (passionate) group of Gulenko's communication skills. So if this is true what I surmised up to now, the types that fit are ESFj, ESFp, ENFj, ENFp.
What would be most likely for her?

I've posted here a random picture, but I don't know if it's relevant.
If you'd like to watch some videos with her

She's definitely an ISFp... judging by the music that she produces...

I added a poll, so let's see what's it gonna be, hihi

http://www.nndb.com/people/756/000025681/tori-amos.jpg


I found something interesting here in her biography
"The strict, uninspired curriculum proved completely at odds with her intuitive form of playing, and she was expelled from the school by the time she was 10.

Undeterred in her conviction that music was her calling, she began to perform her songs in clubs as a teenager; in 1984 she moved to Los Angeles and formed her first band Y Kant Tori Read"

Does this mean she's an N, in the socionics sense?

I've read somewhere that she has trouble reading musical notes, but she is able to play songs simply after hearing them once. So she is probably an S. Very S, actually, most of her songs are about her personal emotional experiences, that's very S. I think she's definitely an Fp. I'm not sure if she's an E or an I, I don't know much about her personally. Though I guess she is more likely an E, so her type would be ESFp.

Could Tori Amos be ESE?

I know that most people will say no, because of her lyrics or something, but I wrote a few songs that people said were SO much like her music before I ever even heard her stuff (that was over 10 years ago and I honestly had no idea what she did or was like), and I also get told I look like her quite a bit, in real life, including gestures and stuff (a really obsessed INFp Tori fan told me this after she'd watched her interviews and this was when I was a teenager - she told me to listen to her music but I didn't until a few years later).

If you don't agree, I won't argue. I actually just think it's interesting. If we're not the same type, we have some weird resemblance (maybe it's the Scottish and Native American roots).

If she is ESE, I think she'd be my subtype, Si.

Any thoughts on her type or whether I am right? I'm trying to learn after all. :D

I'm inclined to agree with the Ni-INFp typing of her.

Tori Amos: Ni-INFp (Harmonizing subtype) [IEI-Si] (INFp-ISTp)

My ex-boyfriend thought she VI'd ESI, yet I can't seriously argue with IEI... I was first introduced to this typing of her circa August, 2009 on the socionics.com forum, and I gradually came to agree with it. Her music is pretty strong in Fe combined with a relatively strong Si-role based on things I've read (about her personally). I think Tori Amos and Trent Reznor are both Ni-INFp (Harmonizing subtype) [they both write about their 'feelings' and are comfortable expressing Fe and Se in their songs] . . . Tori Amos might be INFp-ISTp (and maybe sp/sx or so/sx per enneagram type stackings) and Trent Reznor might be INFp-INTp (and either sx/sp or sp/sx). Courtney Love might be ESTp-ESFp, ESTp-ENFj, or ESTp-ESFj sx/sp or sx/so:

http://ocean-moonshine.net/e142857369/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=42&MMN_position=80:80

Here's a link about the past 'relationship'/'friendship' between Trent Reznor and Tori Amos:

http://www.hereinmyhead.com/musicians/reznor.html

'The rumor is that Tori and Trent had an actual relationship beyond friendship, which is why there is such intense feelings displayed when either one comes up for the other person. Another rumor is that Tori's song She's Your Cocaine is the "Ballad of Trent and Courtney Love". Finally, Trent's song Starfuckers Inc. has been thought to be related to Tori soley because she uses the word "starfucker" in her song Professional Widow. However, others have noted that Trent's Starfuckers Inc. is actually about Marilyn Manson [and Courtney Love, etc.], and not at all about Tori. Tori has performed Nine Inch Nail's Hurt several times as bridges and intros to her songs, Caught A Lite Sneeze, Precious Things, Bells For Her, and Blood Roses during live concerts over the years. While it is obvious that something happened to the friendship between Tori and Trent, it seems best to assume that we don't really know much at all.'

'The interviewer asks Trent about musicians whom he considers friends: "Tori would be another example. She called me to do this vocal track. It wasn't that big a deal. Her first album was permanently in my car's CD changer. It really struck me as well written, in a similar vein to what I was doing--from a different point of view, but the same kind of addicting, pouring out, gushing, baring, naked kind of song. Other people put their fingers in the pie, and they kind of messed up a friendship. We're not that close now. Some malicious meddling on the part of Courtney Love. But I still feel the same feelings for Tori."-- Trent Reznor; Spin Magazine, 1996'



'T[ori]: When I was writing the song, the song said "I think Trent Reznor would be really good to sing on me." So I made it happen, and I met him. I flew into Los Angeles and I went up to the Sharon Tate house where he was staying. It's a very spooky house, not in the way it looks but just because you know what it is.
I[nterviewer]: You told me a story about cooking chicken for him in the Tate house which gave you an indication that maybe things were kinetically strange there.
T[ori]: I can make this chicken. Whatever he tells you, ever, the truth is I make really good chicken. It's oven fried and I've been making it since I was a little kid. It's awesome how it dribbles down your chin and the butter -- yummy. I was worried about his health because he's not eating a lot, it doesn't seem like he is, and I just said "Let me make some chicken. I'd feel really good if I could do that." And so he said "Yeah, come on up and make it. [But] I don't believe you're really as good [at it] as you say you are." And I said "No, I make good chicken, Trent." And so I brought all the ingredients and I swear to you for the life of me, I couldn't make this chicken. HORRIBLE. It's not like I'd been proven wrong. But anything that is cooked there, my chicken being the only experience I had, of course....Nothing bakes. So I don't know what to tell you, but I think it's a very weird place because -- I promise you, I know how to make this chicken!-- Tori; WHFS Press, Spring 94'

"I: Exactly. But one of your friends, Trent Reznor. I was reading something about you cooking dinner for him over at that scary house.
T[ori]: Well, look, he's so anorexic sometimes. I just look at him and go, baby, you need my cooking honey. And he was very open to the idea because, you know, I don't think he gets much nurturing, that guy. There's just not a lot of nurturing going on. Anyway, so I went over there and I brought all my little supplies because they only have Coca-cola in the fridge.
I: In case you don't know, this is the house where Sheryl Tate was...
I2: Sharon Tate.
T[ori]: Yeah. That house.
I: Yeah. That's a spooky to me.
T: It's torn down now.
I2: I want to hear what you cooked, this is interesting.
T[ori]: Well I was gonna make him baked chicken because like, look, I'm from the South, I know how to make chicken, I've been making it since I was 10 years old, with my Nanny, my Grandmother in the kitchen, where it's dripping down your chin, and that whole buttery thing, right? Well I'm making it, and _nothing's happening_. I mean its just, yes it's cooking right, the oven's cooking, I've made it the same time, the same way that I've made it for 20 years. And it's _not working_. I mean, you know how globs of flour were collecting on the chicken. And, it just wasn't working, nothing was working, and he's standing there with his arms folded thinking he's like, I'm not applying to be your wife or anything. I mean this isn't what's happening anyway. So why are you not giving me a chance? This is wrong. This is your house. And I called my mother on the phone, things got so bad, and I said, Mom, what's wrong, I can't make this chicken for this guy, and she goes, well you know honey, I heard the Folger's coffee heiress was also in that house, and she died that night, and I think there's a curse on anything that has to do with culinary things. And I'm like, thanks, Mom.
-- Tori; 99X Radio Interview, Aug 5, 1994"


'Way back in 1994, when the only men she was dissecting were her father and God, Amos told Spin, "I love the screaming male aggression of [Trent Reznor's] music, because I'm not in touch with that part of myself so much. I think there ought to be a raging-male cruise line we could take, go to seven islands and just watch these guys act out."-- Tori; Village Voice, Oct 3-9, 2001'

She looks a bit like Shania Twain (expression-wise), she could be ESE. But I also see some Beta NF or IEE. She's obviously an F type.

I voted for SLE (ESTp). If Silke (siuntal) votes, it'll probably be for IEI, since most of her typings (99%?) are the same as Socionix (Ashton/mfckr et al.) . . . . Then again, even in circa August 2009, Marie84 typed Tori Amos as IEI on the Socionics.com forum.

I think it really is tasteless to mention to me these intimate aspects of your sex life. These things are supposed to be intimate and not talked about so freely. I find it quite strange you send to me a link to an almost pornographic site. It is crude and it lacks the elegance human relationships should have. These are intimate aspects you should only browse with your boyfriend.


Agree with that wholeheartedly but I'm curious, agape, did you send her a link to 16types.info?

I once had a dream in which Tori Amos might have said, "Read The Patiences of Adulthood; do not be thwarted by their debut," or "Read the patiences of adulthood; do not be thwarted by their debut." Of course "patiences" doesn't really make sense, but I think that's what I dreamt.

Agreed. I also think that her music has gone downhill since To Venus and Back (my favorite is Boys for Pele), enough that a lot of it embarrasses me to hear it. Her daughter ate her faeries...

I said, 'Well which one is it?' He said, 'Well, you called me Satan.' I said, 'No! I was doing drugs with a South American shaman, and I really did visit the devil and, well, I had a journey.'

I think she's a fairly obvious IEI... A lot of Ni in her songs. Some really insane Ni that seems to make little to no sense:

Deck the halls I"m young again
I'm you again
Racing turtles
The grapefruit is winning
Seems I keep getting this story twisted
So where's Neil when you need him
Deck the halls it's you again
It's you again
Somewhere someone must know the ending
Is she still pissing in the river
Now heard she'd gone
Moved into a trailer park

So sure we were on something
Your feet are finally on the ground
He said so sure
We were on something
Your feet are just on the ground girl

These are rather Ni and Fe, and probably some of my most favorite... poetry, ever:

"As violins fill with water
Screams from the bluebells
Can't make them go away"

"And in the mist
There she rides
And castles are burning in my heart
And as I twist I hold tight
And I ride to work every morning
Wondering why"

I was initially against 4 for her because intuitively it's not the impression I get when looking at pictures of her. But then I looked at her lyrics, and I could see 4. Well because it would either have to be 9 or 4 and her lyrics speak against core 9, but I definitely think she has a secondary 9 fix (497). And I think she's sp/so. because she seems well accustomed to the world and society for a four.
