You're forming a music group, which MBTI types do you want

You can have as many members as you want, I'm going with 5 members. 

Shoegaze-ish  with a good bit of synth.  Hoping to try something new so open to influences from, Indie, classical, Classic rock, alternative.

I'm including myself we'll we'll start with me , INFP on keyboards, sometimes piano

INFJ-guitar/ INFP support specialist

ISFP-Bass

ENFJ-Can play whatever, but we need their leadership,drive and bravery.  Maybe singer?

ESTP-Drummer, we need this person to spice things up.  Probably we will lose this person to drugs later.

I don't know all of the MBTI's well enough to assign specific people to them, so I'll just generalize roles I'd want and then someone else can figure out what goes where:

- A leader figure who takes things seriously and brings discipline to the group, makes sure people show up for practice, get to shows on time, keep people accountable if they start developing an ego or drug problem, etc. This could be a manager as opposed to an actual member of the band as it's a whole job unto itself (INTJ?)

- A lyricist (introvert)

- A music composer (feeling - maybe ISFP?)

- Vocalist should be a front man for the band with great stage presence, unique look/voice, good at doing interviews and interacting with fans (extrovert)

- ???

It might be as important to consider who you DON'T want in a band as much as who you do. Is the self-destructive "sex, drugs, and rock&roll" persona of so many famous musicians a personality type, or simply a byproduct of the lifestyle? Try to weed out types that are more vulnerable to substance abuse, egomania, etc if possible... aside from having a wild attitude on stage, I don't know if their benefits outweigh the risks. 

If you look at some groups like Billie Eilish + her brother, The White Stripes, it seems completely possible to be world class successful musicians without being drug or sex addicts. It also seems like the more people in your band, the more room for disagreements and drama. 2 - 3 seems ideal, very unlikely a 5 member band will stay together for a decade without replacing at least a few members.


O.o Minions for Depart Forum December. See you next year, maybe.

I would go with the best musicians reguardless but this is just for fun, I'm not taking this seriously.  If you're into MBTI you think of stuff like this.  It's a waste of time, I know.

There should be correlations between "good musicians" and "MBTI types" if we do this correctly.

Haha thanks :) That was the intention. Somebody called it a kiwi, and I can't unsee it 😂

I eat kiwi almost every day and the grocery store I go to is also called Kiwi 😂

Do you have a theory? The good musicians I know are a mixed bag.

INTJ - Myself - Composer, lyrics, artwork, ect.

The live performance band - all ISTJs so they can do the performance exactly as I tell them, while I enjoy the music with the crowd.

People take MBTI way too seriously. Being a good musician has nothing to do with MBTI.
