Introvert Sensor Feeler Perceiver

ISFPs are of the Sensor-Perceiver or Artisan temperament and as such they’re going to tend to make music with a strong physical element that’s pleasing to the senses.

ISFPs are arguably the most artistic of all the types and the type most likely to be mistaken for intuitive. If you want to see just how right-brained ISFPs can be, then look for some videos of Jimi Hendrix talking when he was high. You’ll see what I mean.

ISFPs musicians often write most or all of their own music and they’re probably the type most likely to have the complete package as a technical musician, songwriter and star performer. While many of them are shy off-stage, they can be natural performers who come alive on stage. A great example of this is Michael Jackson.

ISFPs are also the type most likely to make music that’s overtly sensual like some of what you’ll hear from Prince and Marvin Gaye.
