Much as I'd love to be a John, Paul, George or Ringo, I'm most likely a Pete -- or even a Chas Newby.

My personality type overall is INFP (the Mediator)   . I also just found out that John was an INFP, too.   

I used to be INFP, too, and then I learned to be more logical (around the time of my political awakening ahdn_george_06) and I became an INTP. I guess I grew up ahdn_paul_01

There's no shame in being an INFP of course, I guess I'm just not one. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

  

I also went from INFP to INTP.

I can definitely identify with Paul. I'm generally a cheerful, upbeat, people-pleaser, I want to be liked but I'm quite controlling, protective and defensive of my ideas and the stuff that I do. I'm willing to take ideas on-board but if I don't think it's going to work and I can prove it won't, I am not going wasting my time on something just to make somebody else happy. So long as you don't come into contact with me in a group project setting though you'll never see that side of me.

The bookish side of me relates to John but I'm more academically-minded than he was (I think). 

 

George, I don't really relate to. In a large setting, I'm quieter but if I'm in a room of 30 people that I vaguely know I have no problem expressing my ideas. I'm not particularly withdrawn or have a tendency to be grumpy nor am I religious.

 

And Ringo....well, I don't really know that much about the intricacies of Ringo's personality. He's not a Beatle that I care that much about and I dislike him more than I like him (I'M SORRY, DON'T HURT ME). I think we'd clash and I'd end up calling him a rude name so that wouldn't be good. 

 

So yeah out of them all I'm probably a 75% Paul, 20% John, 5% George combo.

I think he's a dick, was less of a dick when he was in the Beatles but is definitely a dick now. I think he tries to make funny remarks but they make him look like a....what's the word....a dick.

 

Like when Rory Storm died, he was asked why he didn't go to the funeral and he said, "I wasn't there when he was born either"- a really unnecessary comment about a recently deceased man. All he had to say was "unfortunately I wasn't available" and job done but he had to be a smart aleck.

 

For a man who relies on his English ties and his connection to Liverpool in particular (his callous remark that he misses nothing about Liverpool and wouldn't live in Liverpool again ESPECIALLY during its European City of Culture year aside), he sure has a great time being resident in Monaco where he doesn't pay any taxes and the fact he commented on Brexit “I think it’s a great move. I think, you know, to be in control of your country is a good move.” You fucked off Ringo, you don't pay taxes to HMRC, you don't live there, stop trying to alter stuff at "home" that will never effect affect you nor your millionaire lifestyle. For a man whose childhood was spent in hospital, who was housed in multiple council homes that were paid for by the British taxpayer, he sure is very grateful to the system that kept him alive. 

 

Also, his general 'I won't be signing autographs anymore'. No wait correction, he DOES sign autographs if they're in those ultra limited-edition £300 wankery books from Genesis then he'll sign them. But he won't sign fanmail or for people on the streets because he won't make money from them! But if there's a slim chance he can make a pretty penny, out whips the pen! 

 

There are some bits about him that I like. I just think in general he's a prick.

If I recall, neither he nor Paul voted. He was asked the question and answered it, just like Paul on LSD. We're all entitled to our opinions, Harold. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Oops sorry. I actually noticed it on a subsequent reading and was going to edit it later but thanks for pointing it out, now everyone will understand what I meant instead of what I originally said, phew thanks for that. It's really difficult to tell the difference between those two (or should that be 'to' or 'too', God I just don't know). 

 

Anyway, I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion of course, doesn't mean they should broadcast it. Especially someone who has a public platform on it and will never be affected (once again, thanks) by it. 

Ringo said he would have voted for Brexit if he was in the country**********, he isn't the working man or woman that will experience the effects (I got it right that time, right?) of Brexit. He isn't even resident in Britain. It wouldn't surprise me if he spends less than a 1/6 of the year in the UK. He is fully entitled to a private opinion as anyone is but Ringo doesn't know what 2017 Britain is like (when the interview was conducted). How can you know a place where you don't live anymore. I can't recommend who I think the new German chancellor should be nor can I really say who I think should be the next POTUS. I don't live in the US. I don't know what the environment is currently like in the US. If I was a public figure, I wouldn't state my opinion on it because I honestly don't know.

Anyone who actually does agree with Brexit and thinks what is being done is for the benefit of the country and not for lining millionaires' pocket, I think has been mislead. Come at me all you want but I'm entitled to my opinion.

 

It doesn't change my opinion that Ringo is a dick. I'm not trying to change your opinion either. I'm just stating what I think.

 

*******EDIT, STALL THE BALL LADS, HE'S LIED (another thing for why Ringo is a dick there). In an interview with Bloomberg Business, dated 4th August 2016, a few weeks after the Brexit vote he said, "I voted for Brexit, because I thought the European Union was a great idea, but I didn’t see it going anywhere lately. It’s in shambles, and we’re all stuck with people who want to make arrangements for their own country and don’t think for the other countries. Britain should be out and get back on its own feet." 

 

He also said in the same interview "The U.S. is my town. America is my town.", so a man who supposedly voted for Brexit doesn't even consider Britain/Liverpool as "his town", whatever the hell that means.

 

So with a US publication directly after Brexit he said he voted for Brexit. In a BBC interview conducted a year after Brexit he said he didn't vote....which one is it Ringo?

I've always thought of myself as maybe 50% George, 30% John and 20% Paul.

One of the reasons why George is my favorite is because I relate to him so much. I don't talk very often but when I do talk, it always takes people by surprise. For my school's musical last year, I played a very brash and fed-up maid, which is very much the opposite that I am in real life. People came up to me afterward, saying "I didn't know that you could yell" and "I really didn't expect that". I thanked them, but I wanted to say something like this: "I could always yell, I just never had a reason to." I find small talk boring and awkward, but I love a deep conversation. I also have a very dry sense of humor, which most people also don't expect. Although I'm not Hindu like George, religion was and always will be a very important part of my life. I also really just love being immersed in nature and I sometimes feel that if people just slowed down and admired "the beauty that surrounds them", the world would be a better place. I can also be kind of grumpy sometimes when I don't feel like being somewhere. 

I share a Myers-Briggs type with John (INFP) and I do relate to him a lot more than I originally thought, looking back. I've always admired strong works of creativity and imagine stories and poems when I'm supposed to be focusing on other things. I can also be very insecure based on what others think, but I hide and try to mask my insecurities. I also sometimes just wish for world peace without any real logic behind it, even though I'm aware that world peace is probably a pipe dream (but one that we should strive towards nonetheless). On the other hand, I don't usually say what I'm feeling on a whim, like John.

I can be a huge perfectionist like Paul, although I'm not as much of one now as I used to be. I'm also a people pleaser, I just want to make everyone happy, sometimes at the expense of myself. I can be bossy sometimes. I care way too much about what others think, and although I don't like compliments, I enjoy performing for others. 

Well, I guess that's it.

Have a great day, everyone! heart

I think he's talking conceptually, the way he would have voted, not that he's confirming he actually bothered to vote.

I totally get where ASJ is coming from and a lot of people think the same of Ringo. He got a lot of online criticism after his appearance on ’The One Show’ for how he came across on that. Add in the ill-advised comments on Liverpool thru the years (yet bangs on about it when recording albums), the autograph bollocks, all the peace and love signalling and everything else and you can see why. However, his jokey comments (Storm funeral not Brexit) are just that and down to his sense of humour. The others were the same, George said similar to when asked about not being on ’The Ballad Of John And Yoko (f it had been ’The Ballad of John, Yoko and George’ he might have given a shit but wasn't so didn't).

The peace and love thing is my biggest bugbear, I find it deeply annoying bordering on incredibly irritating and embarrassing. ”Please buy my book/record/shoes - peace and love” is a right pain in the arse. 

I have no issues with Ringo as a person but I far prefer John and George. Parts of how Paul comes across piss me off far more than Ringo. 

 

Also and finally. Why on earth would anyone expect Ringo to go to Rory Storm’s funeral in the first place? Seems a stupid fucking question to me. If I was asked the same I’d also give a deeply shitty answer back.

There was one period of my life where I got INTP on the personality test and I think that was the time where I was trying so hard to be logical and reasonable and now I'm just like "Feck it. Emotions and gut feelings you win" and now I'm a mess and I think that's where my John side really pokes through.
