A Playlist For Introverts

Nearly nothing impacts your mood as heavily as music. As an introvert myself, of the INTP variety, I am really drawn to moody music that probably sounds sad to some people but which to me is striking and beautiful. I was reading about the character traits of INTP people and saw that we are usually drawn to more minor keys and don’t really like happy sounding music. Isn’t that depressing! Anyway, here are 18 songs I found that really capture that introvert state of mind. I gotta say “Recokner” by Radiohead is my favorite. I used to blast that bad boy all by myself in my room with the door closed and locked, singing my little gay heart out.

1. “Recokner,” Radiohead

2. “In Repair,” John Mayer

3. “Everybody Hurts,” R.E.M.

4. “Lessons,” S O H N

5. “Nowhere Man,” The Beatles

6. “How Soon Is Now,” The Smiths

7. “I Hate Everyone,” Go Set Go

8. “Creep,” Radiohead

9. “Loner,” Burial

10. “Beautiful Mother,” Dirty Projectors

11. “ETC,” Francis and the Lights

12. “Across the Night,” Silverchair

13. “Cocoon,” Bjork

14. “Solitude Is Bliss,” Tame Impala

15. “Retrograde,” James Blake

16. “Cold Nights,” How To Dress Well

17. “Dance, Dance, Dance,” Lykki Li

18. “4’33”,” John Cage (lol)
