    Default Paula Poundstone

    I just watched her show tonight; I like her style of humor, although she reuses her jokes sometimes between shows. (I guess comedians have to do that to some extent.) She also reminds me of someone I know irl.

    Type?

    I don't find her very amusing.

    Probably ENTj. I thought I was seeing an hidden agenda, but she seems tense and hyper, in a way characteristic of weak .

    Just because I'm a thinking type doesn't mean I'm not an idiot.

    I agree with the weak , but I don't believe she's ENTj. For some ENTj comedians, just look at Bill Hicks, Lewis Black, Robert Klein, or anyone else. (9 out of 10 comedians are ENTjs). They're acerbic and hold nothing back.
    I would say she's ENFj, Ni-subtype. She comes across as very soft, sensitive, and emotive. It's a shame she endangered her foster kids; she seemed like a decent person on the outside.

    No, "Holding nothing back" when it comes to humor is characteristic of Fe and Se. As NTs and Te quadra types, ENTjs' humor is often quite dorky and subdued. Mike Myers is a good example.

    didn't she get busted for orally satisfying a little girl or something? (not that that has anything to do with her sense of humor or type)

    Mike Myers an ENTj? Are you serious? How does Mike Myers show as a dominant function? And two, how is as a dominant function necessarily related to being "dorky and subdued." That seems much more indicative of as a secondary function with as a primary function. ENTjs are high-octane people, emotionally and intellectually. Here's part of the +/- Socionics description of ENTjs:
    You can be tactless when talking about intimate subjects and insensitive to others feelings. Your humour often has double meaning. When you are in action you can be rude and show bad manners. You like excessive attention.
    Also, ENTjs have as 6th function, so they're not afraid to use it.
    I don't know, though. I'm basing my assertions more on overall type descriptions than on functional analysis alone.
