Yeah, I have toyed with the idea of her being ENFJ. I know you took back your description of her exploding outwards, but actually I agree with this. I find other INFJ female musicians more subtle and to themselves. There is something very (deceptively) simple about their composition/musicianship. However, with Tori I see much more flash and embellishment. More engagement with the audience. Theatrics and histrionics and the such. And sometimes, she really is just too much, which is why she gets a bad rep. Nevertheless, it’s quite obvious that she is profoundly gifted.
Having said that, the themes of her songs all point to INFJ Fi-id. I just don’t think the average ENFJ woman can write shit like she did. I think E3 ENFJs tend to appeal more to universal emotions and sentiments… INFJs, on the other hand, can do the same but often offer something much more personal…which is what I see in Tori, who is a confessional singer-songwriter like Joni Mitchell, another INFJ woman. And bloody Jesus, the stuff Tori sings about are those wicked, feminine, INFJ Fi-id nightmares that no average man wants to even dream of. Basically, I see it as force-feeding men her period blood.
Here’s the first song of her first album, Crucify. That shit’s INFJ female stuff right there. No fucking doubt.
So yeah. Tori Amos’ live performances = E3 ENFJ. Tori Amos’ actual songwriting = INFJ. Therefore, INFJ sun with E3 ENFJ rising.
Oh yeah. Here’s an interesting fact. She was a rape victim. Blake said somewhere in one of the E3 ENFJ articles that he tended to notice a trend in E3 ENFJ women experiencing early sexualization/rape. Tori Amos definitely has this wicked E3 ENFJ, rapeable, sex-hungry vibe going on…However, she doesn’t fool me. To me, she looks like an Ni-dominant, especially in her early days (like the Crucify video). Pure, malleable, INFJ angel.
Another fact. She seems to have vanity problems. Recently, she’s got a lot of surgical modification done, way too much, which made me angry actually. I bet lots of E3 ENFJ rising, INFJ sun women possess beauty/sex-envy issues.
Oh you know…like…
Oh never mind. Doesn’t matter.
Rape and vanity issues. E3 ENFJ stuff, man. I guess it won’t stop INFJ women from having such problems either if they have an ENFJ subtype going on.
Yep. Her live stuff from that era (late 1990s) was unbelievable. I think those were her peak years. And she sounds good with a backing band.
Here’s another live from the same times. I was like, this shit is so crazy. It’s weird. It’s so not tasteful…but y do i lyk it so much mannn?
