Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus has been getting a lot of press lately for her radical style, particularly in her music videos and for her performance at this year’s VMA awards.  But we thought we’d have a look at her personality and see how it fits with what she’s projecting in her performances. In a recent interview she describes the experiences of some of her latest work:

Being passionate about something means not really stopping for anything

I’ve never really had to sacrifice for my career before and I’ve had to a bit with this record

What is Lady Gaga like?

With the release of her new album, “Applause” Lady Gaga is interviewed on ABC News.

I thought of nothing but my fans

I am such an active person, I love performing

I used the ‘ode to the jester’ who lives for applause

I truly missed my fans…I began to cry

I live for making you happy

I couldn’t dance or walk so I had to create

We believe she demonstrates her ESFP character type, describing the details of her hip injury, her extremely emotional connection to her fans, the unhappiness of not being able to perform and her action orientation and need to always be doing something.

The Double-A Side Dichotomy

The BeatlesThe Sensing vs Intuitive dichotomy is an interesting one. It is all about how we experience the world and how we take in information. This is further determined by whether we are Extravert, in which case we orientate to the outside world, or Introvert, in which case we orientate towards our own inner world.

A really good example of this is in the lyrics of the Beatles’ ‘double A’ side single from 1967. On one side is the Lennon composed ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and on the other McCartney’s ‘Penny Lane.’ In the early days Lennon and McCartney wrote songs together but by the mid-1960s they were writing separately. And this ‘single’ represents their individual, very different character types extremely well.
