    I never thought of him as ENTj until it was suggested by someone else. Now I can see him as ENTj. Actually I'm not sure what else he could be?

    Uhm, how is that person not a Fe ego type? I can't even remotely see ENTj, I mean, if that's he's an ENTj then I could easily pass as an ENTj.

    On second thought ESTJ seems most likely to me.

    His style reminds me of this Finnish talk show host, Arto Nyberg, whom I earlied typed as ESTJ.
    I do not think Conan is a feeling type, for one thing his humor appears always slightly forced, as if he feels compelled to explain every joke and reference.

    Great points Curious Soul.

    He may be ENTJ, but he is not nearly as annoying as Taritino. Maybe that's because acts in a more intelligent fasion.

    i would agree with sneg that conan is Fe.

    conan's comic routines are consistently based on random, FeSi interjections which are often very expressive. these can be seen in almost any of his comic routines in the form of high-pitched nonsensical ramblings. his comedy often reflects Si playfulness and mostly focuses on light, worldly, and often self-deprecatve humor.


    i would agree with snegledmaca that alpha SF is the most likely. there is absolutely no way he's any sort of Se or Ni type.

    He values Fi. Gets really upset when people try to pry into his personal life and his character totally changes when this happens. When he tells a very racy joke he looks embarrassed and sometimes apologizes to anyone who might be offended.

    He has weak Si. He always appears on edge as if he can't relax, and always seems to be fidgeting. When telling jokes he compulsively twitches his arm as if he has no other conduit for his mental energy.

    Te dominance. He's always talking in anecdotes and mentioning "things" and people and following through with a humorous conclusion derived directly from what he was talking about in a clear and concise manner. Inversely, Letterman (who is always very at ease, btw) tends to ramble and communicate in a way that is baffling and bizarre, and a lot of people find it funny but don't know why (ISTp, imo).

    Creative Ni. Rapidly sees possibilities when people or things are mentioned and skillfully produces a realistic (and thus funny) joke.

    I always thought Conan was ENFp or ENTp, and that his band leader and sidekick, Max Weinberg, was ISFp.
    I dunno, perhaps I've fallen into the trap of using MBTI criteria again, but I thought that his creative, off-the-wall sense of humor and dress was very

    Also, he did a very interesting interview with Charlie Rose a while back in which he explained the method to his madness. Watch and judge for yourself (you might not want to watch the whole thing, though, because it's almost an hour long w/commercials). Make sure you see the parts in which he and Charlie are actually talking.

    Also, people here seem to see a lot of in ENFps and ENTps (i.e. GillySaysGoodbye), when it's really enthusiasm.
    His feeling comes across as , which is, in my opinion, a warm, muted sociability and kindness about a person that complements their corresponding extroverted function. is much more in your face.

    Mikemex and Meatburger, what do you think?

    Also, listen to how he talks about television shows. He sounds *a lot* like Tarantino.

    Okay, scratch ENTp. He actually did an interview with Rose several years ago (not this one) in which he actually did seem kind of ENTp, but that was then. My bad.
    He definitely looks ENFp, though.

    is that like the LIEs you know? i can see where this sort of thing would be related to Te's respect of Fi (particularly with LSEs, where i see this as an important characteristic), but IME LIEs are some of the greatest propogators of racial jokes.

    none of this has anything to do remotely with Te.

    sounds more like Ne than Ni.

    Conan visited Finland last winter and made a lot of less official material here where he was somewhat different person than he is in the official show. He walked around doing sort of adhoc comic which ended up being quite good. Sadly not much of that material is available to me but here is some. Perhaps these will help identifying him if you have only seen him on the official show:

    This link contains the "Sauna society"-clip (comedy):
    http://www.nbc.com/Video/videos/conan_finland.shtml

    Here is "Fagerstrom"-clip (comedy):
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DC0_q4ShCuc[/youtube]

    Third one is an interview in one morning tv show (serious):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYdphAgywVQ
    Oh you have to click the link again as this doesn't allow embedding.

    In the fourth one he is giving award in a sort of Finnish Emmy-gala kind of thing:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7_aaCRenOE
    Again doesn't allow embedding so click the link.

    Here he is interviewed by two annoying kids (the most stupid thing _ever_ but shows Conan in a strange annoyed-amused mood):

    I think he is Ne-ish but I can't tell if he's ENTp or ENFp. I agree with Discojoe that he changes character when people pry into his private life but I can't tell if it's that he values Fi or if he is getting a PoLR hit. It seems to make some kind of change in him though.

    I haven't watched him since my daughter was a baby so this is based on my impressions of him a while back.

    I don't think this is correct.

    Anyway, I think LIEs will make jokes taking for granted that the person/audience will see it as a joke, but if it falls flat and the person gets offended, they will behave as discojoe said.

    Agreed.

    The only possible types I can see for him currently are ENTj (emphasis on the Fe Role) and ESFj. An ENTp would be way less careful about hurting people's feelings (Fi).

    It seems to me he favors more simplistic, inclusive humor, the kind of stuff that is obvious on the face of it (Democracy). I somehow think ENFj humor would be a little bit more...pretentious, or provocative maybe.

    I can't think of any ENFj comedians, so I hope that's not a totally wrong characterization.

    i buy that scenario, but i also think that LIEs are not shy about the use of racial humor. not all LIEs necessarily fit into this category, but as a general rule i perceive most of the absurdist racial stereotyping that goes on to be a product of gamma types.

    Not really...he's obviously an extrovert, if you ask me. ILE, LIE; one of those two.
