    Default Alfred "Weird Al" Yankovic

    So... whatcha think?

    I keep thinking ESFP... (mainly ESxP due to the shock-value humor in much of his work)

    ENTP. Hands down.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I am puzzled as to why anyone would say shock value is an S trait. Shock value is clearly in the N domain, since the N has a taste for the idiosyncratic and unconventionality. S tends to prefer believable down-to-earth humor.

    I say ENTP as well.

    I'd guess ENTP, too.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    If it means anything, ENTPs have Fe as their third function, which can sometimes confuse people. (Not that ESFPs actually use Fe, they have Se + Fi ... but they are still often pegged as "drama queens" and can look emotional/mercurial on the surface. Dramatic Se is acting upon Fi inclinations.)

    So ENTPs (if they are not in wacky mode) can seem very affectionate, sympathetic, caring, etc. They know how to do that at some level. Sometimes that is mistaken as Fi feeling.

    I think I was fixating on the impression of "shock" more than the substance when I came up with that. ENTP makes a whole lot of sense in retrospect though.

    It's funny because I know at least three S-type friends/acquaintances who are *not* fans of Weird Al at all... one's an ESFJ lady who hates him, one's an ESTP male who just doesn't care for him much at all, and the third's another xSTP (not sure I/E) who says he's not really a fan. But (nearly) all my N-type friends totally get a kick out of his work. The difference is almost comical. So while my first guess was ESFP, I really *knew* something didn't fit right there...

    ENTP. Asked to fill in a word, Yankovich responded to "A what a day keeps the doctor away?" with "A shot of B12."
