    Default Gary Larson

    cartoonist; drew the far side for some fifteen or so years. well known for his zany and bizarre sense of humor. i don't know all that much about his personal life so i can't really comment.




    very hard to find media material on larson; doesn't seem to interact much with mass culture. i can't find any videos of him at all. nonetheless, despited limited material, any knowledge of his work can be used in conjunction with his images. any insight as to his type is appreciated.

    here's a radio interview of larson.

    Doesn't sound as negative as INTps, nor as serious as INTjs. Therefore I'd go for ENTp.

    Note also the minimalism of his drawings and the lack of sensory appeal. Just a bunch of thin black lines not very smoothly drawn. Also, huge amounts of plays on words -- things like building a scene around "cow orker" instead of "coworker." I think this is probably absurdist humor.
