    Any other INTJs out there listen to classical music from time to time?

    I listen to Andres Segovia sometimes. I'd like to say something cool about it, like it calms me down, or it helps me think, but in reality, I don't know why I listen to it, I just get in a mood for it. Anyways, does anyone have other classical music they put on? If so, what? Also, include Baroque and Romantic period music, just so we get a full range while we're at it.

    I always found it exceptionally boring. :)

    Exceptionally boring? For me, hell no. Almost all music that makes me feel strong emotions belong to the classical genre. It's all in the taste though. Many INTJs are said to be inclined to metal. However, what metal only does to me is give me a bad headache. Again, it's just individual differences. As a child, I have been first taught to play the piano by a classically-trained music degree graduate so maybe it's a bit of early influence too.

    I'm listening to it primarily because its complexity attracts me. I really love music that has plenty of dynamic changes such as this:

    How most classical music often has no definitive title and their being non-lyrical in nature also helps me get in touch with my imagination more than modern music (pop songs etc). It also serves as a great background while doing art, writing and cooking as well.

    Here are the composers I frequently listen to:
    Baroque: Vivaldi, Bach, Handel and Purcell
    Classical: Haydn, Gluck, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert and Gossec
    Romantic: Paganini, Mendelssohn, Strauss, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Verdi, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Dvořák, Balakirev and Bizet
    Impressionistic: Satie and Debussy

    My favourite pieces:
    Dvořák - Romance for piano and violin, Op.11
    Vivaldi - Four Seasons
    Johannes Brahms - Hungarian Dance No. 5
    Fréderic Chopin - Grand Valse Brillante
    Dvořák - Romantische Stücke Op.75 - 1. Allegro moderato
    Bach - French Suites
    Bach - English Suites
    Paganini - Caprices
    Mozart - Turkish March
    Debussy - The Sunken Cathedral
    Debussy - Claire de Lune
    Debussy - The Girl with the Flaxen Hair
    Verdi - La Traviata - Brindisi
    Georges Bizet - Carmen Suite No. 2 - Chanson du Toréador
    Georges Bizet - Carmen Suite No. 2 - Habanera
    Erik Satie - Trois Gymnopédies
    Beethoven - Violin Romance No.1, Op.40
    Liszt - Liebestraum no. 3
    Schubert - "Ständchen" D957
    Schubert - Ave Maria
    Balakirev - Islamey
    Rimsky-Korsakov - Flight Of The Bumblebee
    Rimsky-Korsakov - Capriccio Espagnol, Op. 34
    Mozart - Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550
    Rossini - The Barber of Seville - Figaro's Aria - "Largo al factotum"

    .... there are more but I got lazy listing them all.

    Even so, I do not solely listen to classical music. My actual playlist is approximately 65% Classical Music, 20% Soundtrack (Mostly, the epic Hans Zimmer ones and Yasuhiro Takanashi's works), 10% New Age (Yiruma and Crain), 5% Others (Pop and Jazz).

    If you consider Yiruma's pieces classical then then i do listen to it occsionally. I tend to favor progressive metal ( occasionally some other kinds) and stuff produced by Two Steps from Hell, Audio Machine, Epic Music, ES Psthumus, and similar things.

    For some odd reason, I actually find myself listening to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart sometimes...and I'm more of a rock person.

    But I only listen to it, if I'm onto something...if you know what I mean.

    I don't listen to classical, but I do enjoy listing to string quartet performances of popular songs.

    I have a casual liking for it..don't listen to it often and don't know name of a whole lot of songs but it's nice to listen to. I particularly like to listen to the different instruments' parts. Like I will focus in on the horns for a while and then strings, etc. I like to do this even more if I'm watching it performed..."that's a French horn right there, I wonder which sound it is making" and I focus in on it... It's kinda fun.

    I do listen to classical music , yes. And many other types of music, from Byzantine (ecclesiastical) hymns to progressive trance

    I have many favourite classical pieces. Siegfried's funeral march, from Wagner's Twilight of the Gods is one of them

    Military marches, primarily, though Holst and Tchaikovsky are also some of my favorites. VGMs and movie soundtracks work just as well. I find I can't listen to music with lyrics often because it absolutely wrecks my train of thought.
