“Bob Marley was the Third World’s first pop superstar. He was the man who introduced the world to the mystic power of reggae. He was a true rocker at heart, and as a songwriter, he brought the lyrical force of Bob Dylan, the personal charisma of John Lennon, and the essential vocal stylings of Smokey Robinson into one voice.” – Jann Wenner
Bob Marley was an INFP. INFP musicians are often very creative and driven by the message that they wish to express through their music.
“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.”
INFPs perceive and evaluate the world primarily through their feelings and intuition, and often reject labels, preferring to see the world more objectively.
“Bob Marley isn’t my name. I don’t even know my name yet.”
INFPs’ tertiary process, introverted sensing, often contributes to a rebellious attitude towards authority and the status-quo. This same process can also manifest in feelings of being stuck and the desire to stick with what’s comfortable and familiar. The antidote to this is the exercising of an INFP’s second function, extraverted intuition, through exploration and experimentation.
