Madonna – ISTP
Madonna has sold more than 300 million records world-wide, making her the best selling female artist of all time.
The majority of women (about 2/3) are Feelers, meaning that their primary criteria for evaluating information is their feelings. Madonna is an exception. Her primary function is Introverted Thinking, which assesses information based on logical alignment. It compels her to ask, ‘is this accurate? or is does this make sense?’ in making decisions.
Introverted Thinking also tends to result in a certain boldness that holds logic and ‘truth’ in higher regard than sensitivity or politeness.
“A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want.”
“When I’m hungry, I eat. When I’m thirsty, I drink. When I feel like saying something, I say it.”
As an ISTP, she lives very much in the world of performance, experience and sensation. The auxiliary function of an ISTP is Extraverted Sensing, which gives them a tendency to live in the moment and usually results in them being talented in the physical world.
“Only when I’m dancing can I feel this free.”
