Introvert iNtuitive Feeler Perceiver
INFP musicians are often band leaders or solo artists.
They tend to be artistic and creative by nature and many of them write most or all of their own music.
Self expression is very important to them and they care deeply about the meaning and message in their music. A lot of INFP musicians are activists who advocate for social causes.
They’re primarily attuned to the subjective world of their personal feelings. It’s critical to them that what they do feels authentic and this is the primary criteria for how they make decisions.
The learning style for an INFP involves seeing patterns and connections using their intuition. Any time they try something new it gives them more experience in extrapolating these patterns.
For this reason, one of the keys to their development is to experiment and explore. This can require that they leave their comfort zone and therefore, is easier for them to do when they’re in a resourceful state.
In times of low energy or stress, INFPs will be less adventurous and will tend to stick to what’s familiar or comfortable to them.
They’re can be found in genres like singer-songwriter, adult contemporary, hip-hop, electronic, metal & folk.
