I've basically had "folklore" on repeat since it came out, and I have my favorites, but just like on every Taylor Swift album I listen to, there is just a song or two that feels a little more personal.
I came across a tweet recently that says your favorite song on "folklore" is most closely related to your personal ~trauma~, but I think it's probably based on your Enneagram type, which is just your personality.
"folklore" is available anywhere you get your music and I made a playlist with the Enneagram specific tracks. Some of it can only be explained when you hear it, so make sure to give them a listen when you're done reading.
"My only one//My kingdom come undone"
Known as The Reformer, you're probably a perfectionist. Type 1 is the idealistic type filled with purpose and self-control, so "hoax" is the one for you. This song is all about the one person who pulls down your perfect walls and your self-control, but it still didn't work out. One of the most underrated songs on the album, but one of the most emotional.
"And isn't it just so pretty to think // All along there was some // Invisible string // Tying you to me"
The Helper is generous and people-pleasing but also possessive. "invisible string" has a very upbeat sound and vibe, but the lyrics tip a bit of a possessive hand.
It's a song about fate and how the person you're with has always been yours. It also showcases your idealistic side. Most of the lyrics will hit home for you; it's not necessarily one that will make you cry, but it definitely showcases your growth and your caring nature.
"Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names // And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet"
The Achiever - you are very success-oriented and image-conscious. This song is right up your alley. While the character in the story Taylor tells here isn't necessarily concerned with her image, it is definitely in that world.
You'll enjoy and relate to the escapades of the newly rich and successful laid out here. You're driven and adaptive, but have you ever dyed your neighbor's dog key lime green?
"You were my town, now I'm in exile, seein' you out"
The Individualist is known for being a little...well, dramatic. "exile" is the only collaboration on "folklore," which is a little ironic, but it definitely matches your expressive side and really taps into your sensitivity.
So, it's OK, we know this one is for you. Turn it way up and let it all out. This song is perfect for those late-night, solo drives you like to take.
"Make sure nobody sees you leave // Hood over your head, keep your eyes down // Tell your friends you're out for a run"
The Investigator is many things: intense, secretive, and isolated. "illicit affairs" is all of these and more. The song tells a story of secret meetings and an intense love story.
While it is not one of the happiest songs on the record, to say the least, it tells a story about your passion and loyalty in spite of your self-isolating nature.
"Wanting was enough // For me, it was enough // To live for the hope of it all // Cancel plans just in case you'd call"
The Loyalist is a relatively diverse personality type with traits revolving around commitment and suspicion and that's why "august" is perfect for you. It tells a story that's a little naive.
You fall in love quickly and are committed to whoever you're trying to build a relationship with, but you're no fool and are suspicious and anxious when someone doesn't show the same interest as you. "august" showcases your maturity and growth without losing who you are.
"Would it be enough if I could never give you peace?"
Busy, fun-loving, spontaneous, versatile, and scattered. All of these describe you, The Enthusiast. "peace" takes these fun parts of you and brings in your serious reality.
The absolute most underrated song on the album that absolutely deserves a Grammy, but if nothing else, you can definitely vibe to it. Your wild and fun nature is a little more mellow here, but it showcases your dedication too.
"Every time you call me crazy, I get more crazy // What about that? // And when you say I seem angry, I get more angry"
Wow! You are confident, powerful, and dominating - I love that for you. You take nothing from no-one and "mad woman" is your anthem. Don't let the title fool you; this song is all about reclaiming the "crazy" stereotype and calling out those who provoke you and make it seem like your fault. I know you are confident in yourself, and this song just backs you up.
"I want you to know // I'm a mirrorball // I can change everything about me to fit in"
Last, but not least, The Peacemaker. Above all, you are self-effacing and reassuring. This is a love song showcasing your dedication to who you are and those you love. You are not one to take the spotlight, but you want those you love to be comfortable no matter what.
You are in tune with the needs of those around you and shape yourself to meet them. There are a lot of great things about you but your kind, easy-going nature tops the list.
