.com/2ec7893ae840adcc496d88b6f048f9ba.pngKurt Cobain didn't even seem very interested in dancing though.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Kurt Cobain. It was just something he did occasionally, no? I don't even agree with your premise that ISFPs will be naturally good at dancing by default, but I'll accept it for the moment.I'm not saying that all ISFPs are interested in dancing, but the ones that do dance are naturally good at it because Se is their second function.Which of the 16 personality types is Kurt Cobain?. Prince is a good example of it. Cobain is naturally awkward in his movements.On a side note, this guy was basically the tumblr user before tumblr was a thing.Obvious troll, I'm puzzle by those who voted him INFJ. This guy Ni-dom and Fe-aux? lol Stupid socionics bs.His actual type aside, I'd really love to meet the person who voted for him as ESTJ. I think an ISFP doesn't necessarily have this overwhelming sort of physical focus as a Se-dom would have, especially if they are hardcore Fi in introvert-land, where their authentic emotions take precedence over some sort of physical statement.@bobnickmad This is Kurt dancing. You tell me if this looks at all Se to you:, it's not like punk/grunge in dance music tough. What about his stage-dives? Isn't that pretty Se?INFP. I remember seeing a video of Kurt dancing off stage to some other band and he didn't know how to dance at all. He moved awkwardly. He lacked Se so definitely not ISFP.Obvious INFP. Strongly connected with his personal feelings on everything, documented his feelings and used them as a guide in life. This combined with his Ne made him want to put his feelings to a revolutionary group or project. Also if you wonder Ne just listen to Beeswax, Hairspray Queen or Mexican Seafood.He seemed to impulsive to be a 469 tough. I think 468 could be more like him, as it seems a very volatile combination. .May be..... 469 tritype "the Seeker"?I could see a 6 in his trytipe based how he wanted to be loyal to the American punk scene and its ethos, but he felt it was harder since he became famous. //Anyway, Nirvana was basically an '80s underground band made popular. The kind of combination of hard hitting punk and catchy beatlesque melody was already done (and I would say better) by bands like Huser Du (Bob Mould: ISFP) or Bad Religion (Greg Graffin: INTP).I concede to INFP based on his ''journals'', it looks like the kind of stuff I like to do, I imagine an ISFP would rather ''do'' something. He also says in those journals that his lyrics are part sincere feeling, part satire, so his lyrics really had some meaning, he probably was just tired of giving interviews. Still, I don't find him a particurarly intellectual INFP.And...What was his tritype? I think he was a 458 "the scholar" Dave Grohl says Cobain put allot of time in writing lyrics, and writing in journals.I'm open to him being INFP watching more interviews with him.I guess this could show that someone saying there's no ''mesagge'' in their lyrics or movies is not reason for ISFP.No, ISFP does not commit suicide, this is something INFP ''We can't explain ourselves! We don't consciously think about our music so we can't explain it.'' ISFP, it is.Ok, to explain better why he couldn't be INFJ: dude makes references to his values but really doesn't know to make himself explained or convince others, it was just gut feeling with him, very self-referencial both in interviews and music, also he's incredibly laid-back in interviews, he doesn't used them to his own advantage, he's just there hanging out in the background, often letting Krist take the spotlight. I'm open to ISFP for him. He didn't seem to care that much about lyrics. Not to say that all INFPs would make great lyricsts, just as ISFP can make great lyricist, but INFP would try to have more polished lyrics I would say. Cobain's lyrics seem abstract but not really in thought-full way, more like references to aspects of his life and sensory things one might not be familiar with.In one interview he even says his lyrics are nonsense and want people not to put much meaning to them. And there's ''Rape Me'', everyone can make that it's about him being bitter about people who sell personal informations of his life to journalists, yet it ends up trivializing the word ''rape'', something he cared about, I think an INFP would have thought more about the effect his lyrics would have, while for him it just seemed like a good idea then and stuck with it. Also, he doesn't come like many INFPs in interviews. He has a certain cool vibe to him that seems like aux Se. Still, there are parts of his journals that seem like Ne ramblings, and there's the weird painting he did, so I'm still open to discussions. But for now, ISFP seems a bit more likely.What's up with these negative comment about Fi lately? How it's shallow and egoistic and all that bullshit. It's possible you already drove off one of the better typist on this site with your crap. Anyway, the nothing Ni-dom or Fe about this guy. The only questions are INFP or ISFP.Whats with the INFJ votes, he was so selfish, i watch one of his interviews and he tries to make everything about himself, like he was responsible for every creative decision of the band and tries to take credits of others.And he had zero friends according to C. Love; she was his only friend. But I won't go deeper into this.Dave Grohl talking about Cobain: ''That dude was funny, and light-hearted. As much he had trouble feeling comfortable, he was also funny and easy to be around.'' Easy to be around and light-hearted is a way many people seem to describe INFPs and ISFPs. Another description from Grohl about Cobain: ''He isolated himself in lots of ways, emotionally. But he had a genuine, sweet nature. He never intentionally made you feel uncomfortable.'' He also describes the sense of humor he and Krisst Novoselic had (who I think is very ENFP) :''It was like Python. The sense of humor was so bizzare, and abstract,and off.'' Sounds like Ne type of humor.That was all from one page in the journal.An example of Ne ramblings from his journal: ''Such expectations, so much high support, everyone want it more than me.Infinity doesn't exist. Mathematics are based on 10, Numeral variations are synthesis of retrogression, such being: reactive, cause and effect, comunicational, social interplay with situations etc.Hi, I don't have dyslexia. An infra-red light will simulate the sun in time of winter.A hypnotherapeut will hold your hand and aid you back to bed. If you talk to a friend, the friend will give a list of remedies you already tried. The first seven years of my life were an amazing, realistic, and an absolute grateful joy. To be positive all the time is to ignore all that is important, sacred and valuable. To be negative at all times is to be threatened by ridiculousness. To translate opinions is an obvious search for proof of intelligence. Abusive use of descriptive words is a disperational will to sincere, yet retarded expression.''I don't get the INFJ votes at all -and the arguments for it are just silly and not even properly deal with him. Where do they see to ease with persuasion that INFJs have. Anyway, the ISFP vote makes way more sense, and on the surface ISFP would have been a strong possibility, maybe even more than INFP. He's way more in your face, and rebelious in an aggressive way than your typical INFP.On the other hand if you compare with others ISFPs in punk and alternative like Ian McKaye or Bob Mould it's easy to see the difference: they all have that genuine and laid-back vibe to them, but the other two seem much more down to earth, more concrete in interviews. Still, what's really revelatory for his type is his Journals.They are filled with his personal values for once (Fi), at the same time they lack in sensory descriptions of actual places and scenes, instead we have stream-of-conciousnes and short snippets of philosophizing on various interests (Ne). As for Si, he said in an interview that his father used to scolled him for not properly behaving in restaurant, and that stuck with him, and he always got picky about not hitting on things, throwing things down, keeping things in order or stuff like that, which sounds like lower Si to me. He also said that his favorite book is Perfume (the inspiration for Scentless Apprentice) because he was always an hypocondriac, which also seems more likely with lower Si.Ad conversation below: INFP and ESTP are made to be together. The best matches. Trust me I am INFP. :)4w3 fits him well, he was ambitious and wanted to be recognized for his talents but his individualism came first. He was surely an unhealthy one though as it seemed to have lead to some self conflict.I don't understand much about enneagram, but wouldn't he be more a 4w3, in Montage of Heck he was describe as ambitious and he wanted to be very popular, and even resented Axl Rose for being as popular as him.You can't really base much on the intertype relationship theory of Socionics, I haven't seen it work too well in real life. Some of it is very understandable but their theories are very stubborn. I mean the people they say I should be going out with most are the people I get tired of the most.Whatever. Watch his interviews. Listen to what he says. He doesn't sound like an infp.Actually eye movements do have to do with personality type. Your eyes move for the different functions.It is true that they are the conflictor types in Socionics but remember Socionics is not perfectly correlated with MBTI. For example, Fyodor Dostoyevsky (INFJ) is the type alias for INFj (INFP) in Socionics. And also, conflictor types can still get along with each other; it just means it'll be more difficult and that they'll be very different. It's not a rule that conflictor types can never hope to get along. For example, Anne Hathaway (ESFJ) gets along fine with Christopher Nolan (INTJ).Well ..I now think he is an INFP but an INFP cannot get along with ESTP's because they are conflictor types in the intertype relationship theory of SocionicsEye movements have exactly nothing to do with personality type. And there's no reason an INFP couldn't get along with an ESTP.Actually from observing his eye movements he seems to be an infj. That would also better explain how he got along with Courtney love if she's an estp.And Courtney Love as ESTP? Is that even right? Not like he really "got along" with her that well anyway since she drove him to suicide. Please. Such stupid arguments across the board.No, almost everyone agrees that Kurt Cobain is INFP because he definitely is one. Sentimentality goes with INFJ too, but that's not why and he isn't an INFJ. And it is absolute BS to suggest that for some reason an INFJ would be more likely to get along with an ESTP than an INFP. What a ridiculous reason.Lol, people think because he is sentimental that he is INFP. He is NiFe and his sentimentality is likely because he is a social 4 in the enneagram which is the more typical emo and sad 4.Courtney Love is an ESTP therefore Kurt can only be an INFJ because an INFP cannot even get along with an ESTPCourtney Love is an ESTP therefore Kurt can only be an INFJ because an INFP cannot even get along with an ESTP
