What Music Genre Are You, Based on Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

What music gets you all in your feels? What beat makes your body rock? If you’re not entirely sure, you’re about to find out not just your personality’s music genre but also your Myers-Briggs song of choice.

And if you haven’t already, take that Myers-Briggs personality test so you can begin to understand yourself better and start working with your personality as opposed to against it.

Now, let’s dive into your ideal Myers-Briggs personality song. What is your MBTI as a song?

Your Myers-Briggs Song Match & Music Genre

The Architect - INTJ-A/INTJ-T

Your Song: “Sounds of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel

As an Architect personality, you spend tons of time thinking, and you actually enjoy spending time solo. In fact, thinking is your jam. You like to let your thoughts guide you toward theories and ideas as to why life is what it is.

“Sounds of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel offers up a tune where you can truly sit, think, and ponder as you do. So, what does this make your genre? Folk-rock gives you enough energy while also letting you do what you love.

The Logician - INTP-A/INTP-T

Your Song: “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen

The Logician is a creative and problem-solver that emphasizes logic. With a love for patterns, you might actually even be into writing, composing, or producing. Yet, your jam of choice is rock music. You love the experimental side to this beat, and it goes a lot with your rebellious nature.

And with that, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is your song. You can even look for patterns within it. It’s also one of the best rock songs of all time.

The Commander - ENTJ-A/ENTJ-T

Your Song: “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong

The Commander isn’t easily phased.

Challenges are opportunities. Problems? Those don’t exist! Your confidence and charisma are what draw people to you. And this matches so well with the good ol’ music genre called jazz.

Your song? Try out “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. While you might come across a bit as uncaring at times, this song definitely isn’t, and it might just show your true colors.

The Debater - ENTP-A/ENTP-T

Your Song: “Come Together” by The Beatles

The Debater is objective, rational, and logical. With big ideas, you love to solve problems, and you also probably love to argue about what is “true” rock. Thus, your genre is rock, and you tend to fall for the classics, like Elvis and The Beatles.

With your big idea nature, your song is “Come Together.” Throw it on and rock out!

The Advocate - INFJ-A/INFJ-T

Your Song: “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana

As the Advocate, you are a rarity, with only 1% of the world’s population making up your personality type (but don’t let that go to your head!). On an innate level, you love thoughtfulness and profound ideas. Your imagination can run wild.

You are also very cause-oriented, which drives you to turn toward more revolutionary music styles, like Nirvana.

The Mediator - INFP-A/INFP-T

Your Song: “Basket Case” by Green Day

As the Mediator, you often tend to sway toward morality, virtue, honor, and beauty. And unfortunately, this frequently means that you suppress negative emotions. But this also means that you need an outlet to let all of it out. Music is wonderful for this!

To blow off some steam, blast some punk rock!

The Protagonist - ENFJ-A/ENFJ-T

Your Song: “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye

The Protagonist finds beauty where others don’t. They like helping others and connecting. In truth, you cherish and find enjoyment out of all types of music genres.

You can love music that others might not even consider music. At the same time, you also love some classics, like “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye. Go turn it up and feel that flow.

The Campaigner - ENFP-A/ENFP-T

Your Song: “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey

The Campaigner is a free spirit and enjoys the company of others. You love casual environments and are truly driven by your feelings. While you’d get along great with the blues music genre (you could definitely tune into all those feels!), your song is “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey.

This song is one that you can belt out any day of the week and really drives your positive nature upwards.

The Logistician - ISTJ-A/ISTJ-T

Your Song: “Lean On Me” by Bill Withers

The Logistician personality can be summed up in a few words: calm, reliable, and responsible. You might come off as uptight, but you are someone that everyone can rely on. And that, my friend, is truly powerful!

Your music genre? Pop! This offers up some variation but also touches on points of your personality! And all of this is exactly why your song is “Lean On Me” by Bill Withers.

The Defender - ISFJ-A/ISFJ-T

Your Song: “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele

Also known as the nurturer, the Defender offers up kindness and warmness. You are open to others’ feelings and try to keep an open mind - at least, most of the time! You also tend to really like orderliness. Thus, these components of your personality can clash from time to time.

You love traditional-style music with wide vocal ranges. Or if you don’t love it, you can find that beauty in it. Thus, your song is with our gal, Adele. Throw on “Rolling in the Deep,” and you’ll start singing along and dancing along in no time.

The Executive - ESTJ-A/ESTJ-T

Your Song: “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” by Kanye West

While the Executive personality is loyal, patient, and stable, you are great at following instructions, and you put in the effort in every realm. In a way, you have a lot in common with Kanye in terms of work ethic. At the same time, you’ve got not a lot in common with this artist.

However, rap and hip-hop offer up a genre that provides an outlet to do the opposite of what you normally would. “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” by Kanye West is your jam!

The blues call your name! While you won’t be found shuffling through vinyl in a rundown shop, you do love the timeless songs that ring true through the ages.

The Virtuoso - ISTP-A/ISTP-T

Your Song: “Blitzkrieg Bop” by Ramones

The Virtuoso is a close tie between rational and unpredictable. At the same time, you have an eye for fixing problems and working with others. Your hands-on approach goes hand-in-hand with the no-fuss style punk music, like the Ramones!

The Adventurer - ISFP-A/ISFP-T

Your Song: “Make It Bun Dem” by Skrillex & Damien Marley

Ah - the Adventurer!

You know how to live life to the fullest. Newness is exactly your vibe. But at the same time, your personality aligns well with the harmonious tunes of reggae. So, to make the best of all your positive traits, we chose “Make It Bun Dem” as your song of choice.

As the Entrepreneur, you are very logical and data-driven. At the same time, you strike a good balance and can easily get in touch with your feelings and emotions. You love going fast and being loud.

So, maybe it comes as no surprise that your music genre of choice sways toward the more metal-head type bands.

The Entertainer - ESFP-A/ESFP-T

Your Song: “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line

The Entertainer is almost self-explanatory. You can take on the spotlight and run with it. You love sharing, caring, and entertaining. Yet, your warm, kind, and generous nature means that people love it too.

You fit right in with the country music crowd. Turn on “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line and set up a playlist from there. You won’t be disappointed!

Dance & Sing the Day Away!

Your personality says so much about you. Maybe you’re even discovering more about yourself too. And even if you think you might not like your chosen genre or song above, keep an open mind. Try it out.
