In full: Charlotte: “(laughs) Um, would you say your music is more like a reflection of you, or is it more like constructing a parallel world?” Thom: “Definitely the latter. Good question.” Charlotte: “Oh, thank you.” Thom: “(into the camera) I like that question.

MBTI type of Thom Yorke

.” Charlotte: “Well, you think it’s more constructing a parallel world?” Thom: “Yeah, I, you know, I get beamed it. I mean, my bits are beamed to me.

. They have nothing to do with me. I’m, you know, tuned into a certain frequency some days and recieve the information I need.Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Thom Yorke. It’s got nothing to do with me, I tell you.” Charlotte: “So it just drops into your brain somehow.Which of the 16 personality types is Thom Yorke?.” Thom: “Yeah.” Charlotte: “And you sit around waiting for it.” Thom: “Yeah. ” Charlotte: “Really…” Thom: “I wait like this.” (sits motionless for a few seconds, then laughs)He was probably trolling in that interview about "parallel worlds".INFP 4w5 don't have a public persona. See Kurt Cobain or Robert Smith or Ian Curtis for an example of an INFP 4w5 who is the same on the stage as he is off the stage. Thom Yorke admits to having a public persona that is different from who he really is... because he's an INFJ. Persona = Ni users.@idlebody He's 4w5 and you are confused.“A tortured soul is a tortured soul and will eventually cease to function in any useful way unless they get help. Unless they sail to the land of happy every now and again, where everything is the right way up, then they will simply fall off the edge of the world. A good way I’ve found to navigate is with songs and music.”INFJs have well-developed Fi. And none of those quotes prove he's INFP over INFJ. An INFJ 4w5 is not going to enjoy being hounded by fans or paparazzi. They value their peace and solitude above all else. Thom Yorke's quote about his public persona not being the same as who he is speaks volumes to me about his Ni + Fe.“If you want to be entertained, go and see Hanson.”LMAO On Muse: “I draw the line at Muse, because they openly slag us off, as well as openly rip us off. And that’s like, ‘How fucking dare you?’ You know, there’s one thing to imitate and then to slag off the person you are imitating. That’s just not cool, that’s incredibly bad karma.”“The hardest part about being in Radiohead is listening to my own music.”“Us on hard drugs? That would be horrible. We’d probably end up sounding like Bryan Adams.”“It’s a fine line between writing something with genuine emotional impact and turning into little idiots feeling sorry for ourselves and playing stadium rock.”“I wake up on a normal day and I go out for a meal with my girlfriend but someone is sitting there watching me for a while. Then he comes up and asks me for my autograph and it’s like ‘Well, yeah, I could give you my autograph but, as far as I’m concerned, I’m not going to because I’m here with my girlfriend — this is my space and you’re invading it.’ I mean, I don’t want to be seen as malicious or nasty, but it gets to be too much sometimes.”And to confirm the Bowie / Yorke link, here are some words spoken from the man himself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCUpocVrX0AThom Yorke: "I had a series of mini-breakdowns where the public persona - this thing, this face, this person who writes this music... I would walk past that person in the mirror or listen to that person playing guitar and I didn't know who they were."4s that are so/sp resemble 5s because they are the instincts most likely to detach and intellectualize their emotions.You guys make me really sad.Bowie is 4w3 so/sx while Thom Yorke is 4w5 so/sp which would make him awkward and colder compared to Bowie.@idlebody: great post! I could see INFJ for him. That would be cool because it would be an example of an INFJ who is extremely funny at times.So Bowie is like Thom Yorke?... What in the actual fuck?Sorry Bonita, but Thom is basically like Bowie but without the glamorous image. "Other elements of OK Computer that Randall links to the earlier, 'classic' (progressive era) concept albums are the 'epic sweep of the songs' and the use of the Mellotron, as well as Yorke's decision to write songs from the viewpoint of characters rather than as himself, even if the results were not as apparent to the listener since these characters were not named on the album. Yorke has stated 'I didn't feel any need to exorcise things within myself this time. It wasn't digging deep inside, it was more of a journey outside and assuming the personalities of other people.' When the singer is the same person who wrote the song, or at least the lyrics, it is easy to conflate the two and assume an autobiographical statement. The combination of Yorke's authorial distance in the professedly less personal songs and the computerized voice and electronic instruments gave the album the potential to express broader perceptions, as it explored themes with collective, rather than just individual, meanings."His Fi is fucking huge and too bad if you can't see that when he plays live.Interviewer: "Would you say that your music is like a reflection of you or is it more like constructing a parallel world?" Thom Yorke: "Definitely the latter. I beamed it. It has nothing to do with me." His ideas were "beamed" from the unconscious. He's talking about Ni when he says it beams down to him. The reason why he dances weird has nothing to do with being INFP. He's a 4, so of course he's going to dance weird.He's INFJ 4w5. He can sometimes write Fi songs like Creep because he's 4, but he's Fe all the way. Just look at all his Fe in this interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcfI82NQGwQINFJ 5w6, but I could be wrong.@bobnickmad Have you seen how people attack me in here all the time? And you too, very much lately so. But I'm not using butterfly as a scapegoat, trust me. She's a lady towards me all the time.Hey Bonita, back off. She's just trying to be a niece girl this time, and you attack. Bad Bonita, bad !Not being mean, just honest.No, this a good start :) .Don't mind Bonita, she just enjoys being mean to you. PS: :)You're all over the place and don't relate to INFPs too much; others have said that to you as well. Your movie taste is more like INFJ/ENXP, if that's possible. And you're very manipulative too. You don't have too much talent typing others correctly (we all make mistakes, don't wowwy!!), so why would you type yourself accurately?So much for me trying to be uncontroversial at bobnickmad's encouragement, lol.You mean I'm like being too honest? I don't feel like I said anything mean about Thom Yorke now though. This misunderstanding happens a lot though because I tend to use a lot of words people use negatively, like "slacker" or "sack of potatoes", in a neutral or even positive way, but I'm not actually criticizing them. I'm a ragged slacker sack of potatoes who likes strange and random things myself, lol.I don't think so. You don't filter at all.Okay, not in his teens, but you know what I mean.^^ He reminds me a lot of the kind of young INFPs you see everywhere online.INFPs don't need or want your pity, ENFP butterlfy.I can imagine a dance competition where people were to dance like Ian Curtis, Thom Yorke, or Michael Stipe, lol.He's a probably one of the most INFPs of all typed INFP celeb, like, ever.Because the Thinkers in here can't take it when talented people aren't a T, then they start making experiments with the enneagrams (see Björk).INFP to the bone. But why is he typed as a 5?Seems like an INFP to me. People get the idea that if someone creates a concept album that's a Ni thing. which isn't always the caseWhile recording Kid's A he pulled the lyrics out of a hat and made them work somehow. The lyrics in his solo albums are very sporadic too. I can see a clear Ne from him.Also, can someone change that fucking picture?Isn't using actual quotes a better way to decide someone's type than interpreting lyrics? Lyrics can be interpreted in all kinds of ways. Also, if the debate it's between INFJ and INFP, showing he hates Fe, it's a good reason in favor of INFP I would say.Nah, it actually shows that he hates Fe, and also it doesn't contribute to the argument that he's an INFP, though. It's the way he acts and lyrics. Lotus Flower lyrics, for example, is an epitome of Fi+Ne; Listen to your heart and idiosyncrasy and such. I think it's actually what makes an INFP an INFP--the way their conviction with the self is so strong that it can't help but inspire people to be who they are.He told The Guardian: "I always used to use music as a way of moving on and dealing with things, and I sort of felt like that the thing that helped me deal with things had been sold to the highest bidder and I was simply doing its bidding. And I couldn't handle that."Sounds like a Fi artist.''The difference between me and Bono is that he's quite happy to go and flatter people to get what he wants and he's very good at it, but I just can't do it. I'd probably end up punching them in the face rather than shaking their hand, so it's best that I stay out of their way. I can't engage with that level of bullshit. Which is a shame, really, and in a way it would help if I could, but I just can't. I admire the fact that Bono can, and can walk away from it smelling of roses." This sounds like the difference between a high Fi user (Yorke) and a high Fe user (Bono).He's probably one of the most obvious INFPs I've ever seen. I don't know why anyone can mistake him for an INFJ. Many of radiohead's lyrics are highly Fi too, e.g. Karma Police, is such an anthem of Fi against Te it's not even kidding.Zero Fe indeed. I'd be more likely to say INTP than INFJ, but INFP is what he is.Indeed I'm going with INFP for sure now.He's a hard one to pinpoint. I initially thought INFP but some people here put doubts in my head... or is that the other voices...Night, how does "Muse is INFJ..Radiohead is INFP" equal a convincing argument?Muse is INFJ..Radiohead is INFPMuse is INFJ..Radiohead is INFP
