This is a chart I put together to help people understand what types of music certain Enneagram Types have created. Each type W/ their wing has been assigned a song, and the song’s performer is that Enneagram Type, a total of 18 songs. If the person is a member of a band, their name has been listed in parenthesis on the side.

If you’re wondering “how does Stars know that this is their Enneagram Type?”, it’s combination of research I’ve done on them, looking at several lists of “Famous People By Type”, and educated guesses. I think this is a pretty good fit. If you’re not happy with the artist that fits your type, come talk to me and we can try to find a better one. For now, here you go.

1w9: “What Is Life?” -George Harrison

Am I supposed to look at the performer and see how they are the same as me? How about if you posted songs with the lyrics describing a certain type?
Like maybe 'all you need is love' could be type 9s because we are the peacekeepers. That would be a better style, I really don't get how I am supposed to benefit from this, because I don't know anything about Berlinda Carlise or Phil Collins personal life, so I can't tell whether I feel they are similar to me in anyway. Ten out of ten for effort, it was a good idea, I just don't know how to use this system.

I don't know how you could put Bruce down in the head triad, in fact I'd say that most musicians were type 4 anyway, the artistic individual. Surely if you wanted to display people from the head triad you could just post some academics or professors?

Thunder road is amazing.

I'll be 6w5 or 8w9 for this thread, didnt like 9w1 at all! The lyrics were a bit better than the music though.

I don't know of any musician who exemplifies type Four like Morrissey, or any songs like his do. I don't even know which one I'd pick as so many of them scream Four, lol. Of those easy to access online, Cemetry Gates and Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now are two particularly fine examples though (both with The Smiths).

Different Enneagram types just tend towards different kinds of art (in terms of theme, not medium) and sometimes get different things from the activity. Distinctively Type Four art, be it visual, musical or storytelling, is personal and often in some way autobiographical. They feel that it represents or should represent who they are. There are other ways of approaching art however, that will sometimes produce different results.

Oh ok, does that apply for every ennaegram type? Perhaps you could expand a bit more on that, it sounds interesting and helps me understand the theory a bit better.

Thanks Stars, that was interesting.


Though as a not always healthy 7w6, I've always identified with Born to Run, by Springsteen...the stimulation of the fast, driving song, plus the idea that life is better if you just keep traveling.

I don't know whether every Enneagram type has a specific kind of creativity that it gravitates to the most, but Type Four does. Self-expression is one of the key ego defence mechanisms in Type Four so issues around artistic endeavor feature more heavily in descriptions of them.

I've read and know from personal experience that Type Fives tend towards exploring or drawing attention to obscure or abstract themes and subjects or ones we think are neglected intellectually by people (e.g. the nature of consciousness, seldom challenged ethical principles) and prefer to make the reader/viewer/listener puzzle over how they ought to feel about something (although we often hope we've been subtly persuasive for our own point of view), rather than express our feelings about anything as unequivocally as Fours do, through characters or otherwise. Most works in the science fiction genre are of this style. When I make up stories, I don't feel I'm expressing myself through them, despite having an enormous well of emotions to draw from, potentially. I just have no urge to do that and when I try to, it doesn't work. My instincts are to play with ideas I find interesting and sometimes in ways that will hopefully prompt people to think about something in a new way.

Type Six art is often very similar to Type Four art, as Type Sixes are also highly focused on their emotions, fear and stress in particular, but one difference is that Type Sixes prefer to work within given parameters, for example familiar formats for poetry or genres for music, rather than experimenting or taking a freestyle approach. Type Sixes like their work to be part of a wider tradition, whereas this would make Fours doubt their originality not only as an artist but as a person. Type Sixes are also more likely to create things with more universal themes about threats to society they find disturbing, and less likely to explore in depth experiences and reactions ostensibly unique to themselves.

There are other Type creativity themes I could speculate about, for example I imagine Type Three artists would create with an audience firmly in mind the whole time, but it is and would be just speculation.

Joan Baez didn't write The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, that's a Band song. Goddamn the Band were great :D

Ah, just what we needed. Not some amateur guessing a whole lot of famous artists into enneagram types and wings---ugh, just ridic.!

But this list right here is real and true.
I am glad to see Jeff Buckely represent my group.

RIP, my good sire!
