Extravert iNtuitive Thinker Perceiver

ENTP musicians tend to be unique, creative and often innovative.

They can be great at improvising on stage and in life.

A great example of an ENTP musician is Les Paul, inventor of the electric guitar and multi-track recording.

Music by ENTP artists can range from absurd and intellectually demanding to soft and vulnerable.

They tend to prefer taking roads less traveled over sticking to what they would consider mundane or predictable.  

Another example of an ENTP artist is Imogen Heap, who’s created notable innovations in how music is created (sourcing sounds from fans and even her childhood home for recordings) and performed (inventing gloves that manipulate sound on stage, called MI.MU) and even spearheading a campaign to revolutionize the music industry using blockchain technology with her project Mycelia.

Quotes From ENTP Musicians

“When you’re writing, you’re conjuring. It’s a ritual, and you need to be brave and respectful and sometimes get out of the way of whatever it is that you’re inviting into the room.”

Tom Waits

"Rebellion is obsolete - change things from the inside working out."

Mark Mothersbaugh

Mark Mothersbaugh


"I suppose ultimately I'm interested in music. I'm a musician. I'm not a gunslinger. That's the difference between what I do and what a lot of guitar heroes do."

The Edge

The Edge


“I love music. I love making songs. I feel like I’ve been given a path where I can contribute, where I can protest if somebody does something really obviously wrong or inhuman right in front of me, where I can make a difference. Where I can most especially elevate, make you happy, elevate the condition, elevate the thing.”

David Crosby

David Crosby
