There is a projet in socionic that try to identify which music reflect which function :

it s very interesting in order to try to feel the function and understand them from inside (i mean from Fi point of view :))

what do you think ? it s just another way to try to understand cognitive function (it's like the post

The theory seem logic : here is the principle :


There are a couple reasons to suppose music can be described in socionic terms:

  1. People of the same types may prefer to express their musical creativity in somewhat similar ways.
  2. The information aspects, as broad philosophical categories, can be used to describe different facets of practically any phenomena.
Creative artistic activity is a form of self-expression through which artists and performers strive to convey a part of themselves -- their unique perception, personality, experience, and vision. This seems to be especially true of famous artists and performers, who must develop a unique voice to be memorable to their audiences. To effectively tap into the artist's potential, this voice must be a true expression of the artist's deep interests and self rather than a simple marketing decision made out of expedience. Hence, we might expect the artistic expression of people of the same type to be roughly as similar as, say, their management style.
Psychic states and music

Different music is rooted in different states of mind and strives to produce this same state of mind in listeners. Different artists have a tendency to focus on certain states of mind above others, though echoes of many different states of mind can be found in the work of many well-rounded artists. No matter how eclectic the artist is, however, he cannot avoid a focus or "vector" of some kind -- otherwise his music would completely lack cohesiveness and memorability.
Here is a rough outline of the kinds of states that different kinds of music might produce in listeners, with their associated socionic symbols:
: feelings of endearment, closeness, moral satisfaction, and emotional sensitivity; a feeling of deep personal conviction that may produce the effect of moral firmness and resolve. : passions; the desire to express one's feelings and inner experiences outwardly through expressive gestures such as dance-like movements or vocal-like embellishments : a sense of internal orderliness and correctness of phenomena; a sense of understanding of how to build a complete system from individual parts : an active, but steady and purposeful state conducive to performing goal-oriented activities and creating order in one's surroundings : a physically relaxed and comfortable state free of irritants; a focus on enjoying the pleasure of the moment : a mobilized state full of vitality and energy or implied strength; the desire to make strong, bold, and powerful movements : a dreamy, mysterious, wistful, melancholic, or reflective state of inner discovery and searching; reflecting upon the future or the past : a state of trying to see novel connections or combinations between parts; an openness to continual change and newness, including things unexpected, random or abrupt, or novel The list above does not imply that artists only produce music that reflects their two strongest mental functions. However, we would expect to see an emphasis on these states above others. Also, the individual emphasis of the leading musician or composer may be complemented (or distorted) by fellow band members who are also trying to make their individual contribution to the piece.
