    I really don't think she's IEI, but she could be something else. (Not to get you too excited, but the IEE that she reminds me of, also tests sometimes as an ILI.) TBH, most of the images I see of her I find revolting, so I haven't studied her much, but I know three IEE's well and they vary quite a bit from each other, and it wouldn't take much for me to imagine that Grimes is even farther afield.
    don't you think that it's possible you mistyped them all? I find it rather unlikely that an IEE gets ILI as a test result. Grimes has an otherwordly way of expressing herself. look at this video for example:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7uU0J9umcA

    (especially 0:45)

    in a couple of her songs, she explicitly mentions the word conquering in a romantic context. all the tattoos, the violent themes, the angel symbolism etc. all these things point to Ni Se valuing. I don't know of any Delta type that even remotely behaves like her (and I personally find EII and IEE very absurd here).

    @soundofconfusion, I do think it’s weird that an IEE gets “ILI” on a test sometimes. It just makes me doubt most test results.

    I will say that she gets along very, very well with two SLI’s here.

    you know who likes to play a role? Fe valuing types. you know who cares about authenticity?

    of course, but it doesn't even remotely make sense for grimes. you should listen to EII artists like Talk Talk, John Fahey, Leonard Cohen, The National, Arcade Fire, Hope Sandoval to get an idea of EII music. it's much more quiet.
    lol

    I possess traits of two types that I was uncertain of because of the stereotypes and misconceptions that they both carry... I don’t see how this negates my typing skills, especially when it’s much easier for an Exxx type to perceive and judge people outside of themselves rather than their own self. I could say a thing or two about your own typing skills considering that you are using superficial stereotypes to back up what little you’re saying.

    Playing a role does not make someone inherently inauthentic. Playing a role is at (haha) the heart of the enneagram heart types, no matter if they’re Fe or Fi valuing. Yes, 4s, too. So far in her career, she’s been playing a quirky manic pixie girl eschewing her own manic pixie dream girl qualities by having heavy statements to make using the -mostly- accessible quirky image. It is both a role in that I get the feeling that she plays this part up more than what is naturally there, but it is still a natural part of her. You can play a role in society AND be authentic at the same time, and in fact I think Fi types are the best at doing BOTH. (I agree that Fe is more inclined to play a role that has no real substance behind it, but Fe CAN be very authentic and Fi CAN be fake. Typology is a much more complex art form than you seem to be able to grasp, but I wouldn’t expect a logical type to truly understand it anyways. ) You are going off so many watered down MBTI borrowed stereotypes that it’s utterly ridiculous.

    I can think of hundreds of Fi valuing artists, especially enneagram 3 ones, who are playing up a role that is still tied in to their authentic self. Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera, Elvis Presley, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, the list goes on (I’m using easily recognizable SEE -mostly- e3s as examples to further my point.). A true artist will find a way to express their thoughts/feelings (even if it’s not coming directly from their own music), AND make it accessible/personable to OTHER people (this is where the image and aesthetic come into play.) That, and Fe is absolutely not the only function to embody another point of view in music and just in general. I would say Fe and Ne have the most strength in those areas because they represent themes of humanity on a grander scale and ALTERNATIVE VIEWPOINTS (the latter is especially Ne- to swerve into seemingly opposite thoughts or behaviors for the sake of experimentation and guess what— Grimes herself has said those darker songs you referenced are merely an experiment to see where it goes.).

    Those trendy artists I mentioned? All of them were playing up an image but were authentic at the same time. Especially Nicki Minaj who has actual personas with their own names (Roman Zolanski, Chun Li, etc.) that she’s created, but she clearly has no issue expressing her personal sentiments. Guess what, the music industry runs on artists having to carefully craft and cultivate their image and aesthetic but that doesn’t detract from their own authenticity— and artists tend to mostly be heart types in the enneagram because heart types eat that shit up.

    If she’s not EII-Ne, I would peg her as IEE-Ne. Ne is so hard to miss in her that it has to be her subtype regardless. It’s clear she’s NF, and it’s clear she values Ne end of story.

    Now please try to come back at me with a well thought argument that isn’t based on outdated function stereotypes because everyone is more complex than a simple set of functions. My apologies if this seemed to come off as a rant or seemed angry which it probably does when I’m not fully (though maybe very slightly ) intending it to be. That is my weak, but valued Se at work if we are going to run typology through stereotypes.

    p.s. I see plenty of similarity between Arcade Fire and Grimes with both putting out NF themes, but I actually see Arcade Fire as being more focused on ONE theme and sticking to it (Neon Bible?), so I believe AF is actually more Ni than Grimes in that respect. It would be more useful to compare Grimes to other artists in her direct sub genre.
    And I'm what you desire, like a siren in the night

    The kind of girl you match with on Tinder because you both like creative stuff but really she's too cool for you because deep inside you are actually a dork even though everyone thinks you're cool

    is Grimes really your idea of a type with Se as vulnerable function?

    I might go even with LSI.

    This is the kind of person you need to see face face in order to type.
    I have met effin externally float looking LSI (Ni mobilized) females before and she might also be one. The best giveaway for them is their innate need to be active and silent.

    Looking at her interview I think Ni base is off limits as is Se vulnerable.



    mb somewhere near SEE'ish?

    SEE and LSI? these typings are getting more and more ridiculous . she is not a sensing type. she openly mentioned that she struggles with the pragmatic aspects of her pregnancy, sharing many of her emotions on twitter. she even created an instagram profile for her unborn baby, making me wonder if she treats her child as some kind of art project.

    https://www.instagram.com/warnymph/

    she worries a lot about the future, it's the major focus of her art. here's a desciption of her new album:

    Miss Anthropocene is a concept album that revolves around the titular character, an anthropomorphic goddess of climate-change. Musically, the record is darker and not as upbeat as Grimes' previous albums. The villainous character, Miss Anthropocene, is a psychedelic space-dwelling demon or beauty queen who “relishes the end of the world”, and is composed of ivory and oil. The characters on the album were inspired by Grime’s fascination with Roman and Greek mythology.
    I love Godly personifications of abstract/horrific concepts (for example, Mars as the Roman god of war) – so I wanted to update the list to include our modern issues.



    how do you all struggle to see Ni base in her is beyond me. she is such an obvious example of an IEI.

    Ni from Gulenko:

    In psychological terms, the T-state is experienced as victimity (sacrifice). This state is most religiously colored, as it is imbued with the desire to be liberated from all earthly, carnal, binding spirit. In the T state, a person is drawn to a mysterious, otherworldly, transcendental. In its immoderate manifestation, it leads to hallucinations, the emergence of various mystical visions. Another shade of experience in the intuition of time - this is subject to fate, the lack of free will, life at the behest of the higher forces.


    you can find these themes everywhere in her art. Grimes on her album Art Angels:

    The album cover shows a banshee portrayed as the planet Earth. She mentions this kind of “fairy woman” who wails before someone’s death or misfortune in the album’s 9th track, "Pin". Her dying aspect with blood tears symbolizes the planet’s struggle to find balance with our endless consumption and exploration, while her third eye stands for her enlightenment in relation to all human race, giving to her a perception beyond ordinary sight. The cover sums up the whole concept of the album, where Grimes is in a constant conversation with this spiritual figure (known as the planet Earth), showing our disruptive relationship with the place where we were all born.

    She's IEE. Very cute also, the way IEE often are (they age very well and mature slowest of all types IMO). Many like to have a "tough" esthetic which some may confuse with Se. Lots of piercings and tattoos are common for IEE, it's Si-base that avoid those.

    Themes are not enough.

    Ne/Si ego also

    get into mythology
    gravitate to the occult
    get tattoos
    explore hard bondage, domination, sadism, & masochism; yes even Se Polr
    explore themes of force & violence.

    Grimes has experienced the powerlessness of sexual assault, gender discrimination, and media bullying. She has real-life trauma to draw on for song content.

    But that is not enough to make her Beta or IEI. Reinventing Beta/Gamma pop culture references, attempting to reclaim "girl power," celebrating power and violence in music =/= Se seeking. Experiences, opportunities, insecurities, shape which themes an artists works with. Socionics is information metabolism: How you process the themes. What you do with the themes. Who responds to your interpretation, and who doesn't, and why.

    You say her album has IEI themes

    Which tracks/lines are you calling ego block introverted intuition with extroverted feeling
    Which tracks/lines are you calling seeking Se.

    The Ni seems bit too explicit. Bases are supposed to hide it well.

    Only avail via facial expressions (many IEI's make me internally face palm when I see it reflected )

    is Grimes really your idea of a type with Se as vulnerable function?
    She’s pretty dorky and nerdy and talks with a lisp. Kobe Bryant could’ve killed her by farting at her. She seems generally weak and alpha NT-esque, yes. Not every person of your type is going to have the same quirks that you do, so providing only yourself as an example is just that... one example of one individual, not necessarily representative of everyone of the type.

    Sb, I actually find your typing of her really interesting as I saw an interview with her once where she talked about how much she loves math and how it’s an important part of her music. I’m not saying an NF can’t share these same sentiments, but there was something very logic-based to me about her in that interview. If I find it, I will share. I like the turn toward a logic-based type for her.

    I used to like her when she was into experimental and witch house kind of music. But she's kind of branched off and does all kinds of music now.

    It kind of freaks me out a little because back then I thought she made the music as a form of expression or something, like a lot of 4s. But I guess she isn't 4, and probably not 3 either because she's constantly reinventing her self-image and form of expression. I guess that makes her a likely 7. I'd think Elon is probably a 3 because he's more about the success and competition aspects of social status; and 3 and 7 together probably isn't a bad match, regardless of what their actual socionics types are.

    I'm probably biased because I know people think Elon is LSI or something like that and I think he's too much of an EJ and probably more practically speaking best thought of as LIE. Grimes too also seems like an extrovert; Elon said in an interview that part of why he likes her is that she she keeps busy doing her own thing. It's a little ironic because Te types seem to want to provide for their family (at least from LSEs I know), but they also seem to have a disdain for when their families don't go out and stay as busy as them about life. But maybe LIEs are a bit different. Or could Musk just be a really intelligent LSE? (with an IEE activator Grimes?)

    edit: hmm, doesn't Gulenko see Musk as a kind of controlling task-maker? Could those traits not apply to LSE or even Te as well though? (Maybe I should add to the Elon thread.)
