of monsters and men dirty paws

PUNCHES A WALL I fucking finally finished this song comic thing! I did the first two verses over two years ago? And when TRK came out I got really pumped because it suited the last verse! So well! And I sketched it out and then proceeded to literally procrastinate for an entire year

I was aiming to get this up last week for the one year anniversary of TRK/St Mark’s Eve, but life got in the way so it’s a bit late (but finally it is done, let me rest,)

MBTI  as Songs

I tried to avoid stereotypes as much as possible (like giving the SJ’s country songs…ugh).

ISTJ- 1979 (The Smashing Pumpkins) This song is dreamy and nostalgic, but also ultimately realistic. ISTJ’s are traditional and cautious, but also have strong imaginations that are influenced by their subjective view of the past.

ISFJ- A Dustland Fairytale (The Killers) ISFJ’s are traditional, yet also imaginative and often dreamers. This song is about the traditional culture of America and fairytale love, but also shows how that tradition can be channeled into imagination.

INTJ- Centuries (Fall Out Boy) This song is perfect for the ambitious, idealistic INTJ, who often dwells in their complex dreams of the future. More importantly, it also shows this type’s passion and emotion, not just their ruthlessness.

INFJ- Landslide (Fleetwood Mac) This song is gentle, introspective, and metaphorical, just like the INFJ. It explores the ideas of time, personal strength, divinity, and identity, all within a single extended metaphor of a snow-covered mountain.

INTP- Speed of Sound (Coldplay) This song questions the nature of life and one’s place in the universe. INTP’s have similarly inquisitive minds, and love to understand the logical patterns of the world around them.

INFP- Marching Bands of Manhattan (Death Cab for Cutie) The INFP is passionate, sincere, imaginative and original. This song uses unusual ideas such as marching bands and leaking faucets to describe the vastness of a strong personal love.

ISTP- Harlem (New Politics) ISTP’s are full of energy, but also blunt and analytical. This song is very enthusiastic and youthful, but still manages to capture the more direct aspect of the ISTP’s personality.

ISFP- Go Do (Jónsi) ISFP’s are impulsive, aesthetic individualists, a spirit captured in this upbeat song. Its lyrics speak to stepping outside your comfort zone, being proud of yourself and your identity, and embracing the richness of life.

ESFP- Anna Sun (Walk the Moon) This song is perfect for the energy, enthusiasm, and fun-loving tendencies of the ESFP. It focuses on sensory imagery and tells a carefree summer story, themes often present in the ESFP’s own life.

ESTP- Ready to Go (Panic! at the Disco) The ESTP is upbeat, infectious, and often devil-may-care. The song describes a risk-taking, ready-for-anything attitude, and also does justice to the ESTP’s curiosity and personal charm.

ESFJ- Cecilia and the Satellite (Andrew McMahon) This is a sweet song written for the singer’s daughter, describing his life’s experiences and his love for her. It’s compassionate and imaginative, just like the ESFJ.

ESTJ- Telegraph Road (Dire Straits) This song speaks to memories of better times, as well as the hardworking ethic that prevailed in them, similar to the efficient yet nostalgic ESTJ. This type can also be very creative, shown in the song’s complexity.

ENFJ- Kings and Queens (30 Seconds to Mars) ENFJ’s are passionate and compassionate, particularly about larger social causes. This song is quite emotionally powerful, speaking to a visionary sense of fulfillment that should resonate with the ENFJ.

ENTJ- Hall of Fame (The Script) ENTJ’s are dedicated, hardworking, and ambitious, the exact qualities described in this song. It has a never-give-up attitude that champions ‘everyday’ leaders, such as teachers and preachers.

ENFP- Dirty Paws (Of Monsters and Men) ENFP’s are known for their idiosyncratic imaginations, which fits in perfectly with this song about rebellious dragonflies and talking trees. The song is also a bit like a folk story, showing ENFP’s buried streak of traditionalism.

ENTP- Champagne Supernova (Oasis) This song is a quirky, metaphorical ramble well-suited to the original mind of an ENTP. It delves into questions of life, the universe, and everything, and doesn’t lend itself to easy interpretation.

(Feedback appreciated, especially for the NTP songs! They’re the type I understand least)

Lawful-Verse Voice Headcanons

So I mentioned I think a few Rogues can sing really well but never defined exactly what they sound like.    So I decided I’d make this little post with Rogues who can sing and what they sound like, and I will put in in terms of name, the artist/band that their voice is closest to, and two examples.  The only exception is with Jervis and Mary Dahl because their voices are two of the leads in the same band, and so I’ll be adding four examples.
