    What about his interviews makes him seem introverted?

    His childhood was very lonely. He became addicted to the radio because he needed to hear a human voice.

    Can you explain how this is Ni? I'm actually interested here.

    Even if that is an example of Ni, it is a massive leap to try and claim where that Ni lies in his function order. For two reasons.

    1. Frequency of use can't really be determined...
    2. He was older when he made the quote. This suggests that perhaps what he was saying was an expression of a developing inferior function.

    I'm still inclined to say ESTP, though, if only by the bombastic, crude nature of his stand-up routines. His humor strikes me as stereotypical STP humor.

    his later stuff strikes me as STP 70s and early 80s stuff strikes me as NTP listen to his routine on time on youtube

    It's a philosophical abstraction, with no apparent external basis for it (as Ne would have). He saw an audience of one, and from there he saw an audience of millions stretching in the distance for... no damn reason. That's Introverted Intuition.

    Fair points. However, I'd say Ni is more likely a higher function, because it's somewhat apparent in the philosophical and idealistic nature (albeit broken and cynical) of his political views.

    I agree his humor is bombastic and Se-ish, but it's vastly Te as well, which means he's either ENTJ (first possibility), or ESFP (second). ESTP humor is all about the crudeness, coupled perhaps with some keen observational humor. Carlin's humor on the other hand is snark related to logical contradictions (T-dominance), and inefficiency (Te). Crudeness is secondary.

    You're the one that sucks for not recognizing Ni as something more refined than... forethought.
