seems like the quintessential intj woman to me, albeit a parody of one. when she gets an idea for pure evil, like when she reads the doctor upstairs's mail, she has that mastermind face. plus her humor is Te all the way, not Ti, and she's DEFINITELY Ni (real tina fey is an intj too).
the show as a whole is a great balance of serious Ni with some Ne spatterings thrown in (tracy, frank, etc). infps seem to like it too, but enfps might not like it bc there's no sympathetic Ne and it's kind of tight (tho not as tight as arrested development was).
liz just wants everything to work the first time. she is not trying to figure anything out. she doesn't seem like a Ti dom to me at all, no jokes are based on logical conclusions or logical purity. she seems like Ni. and tina fey has to have tertiary Fi, and be an enneagram 6.
intp humor is family guy. tina fey is intj. when she is crass, it's more of the Te crassness than intp. i generally don't go for intp humor, i find entp and intj to be consistently hilarious, on the other hand. the whole show is based on her goals and her inability to actually follow thru wiht her objectives, this does not make her a p this makes her a parody. self-efficacy is like the main source of intjness, and her Ni watching that drama and destruction and all the inf Se loose ends disgustingly strewn about all over the place are classic intj. she's a 6, perhaps a 6w7, so she's a nice version, and underneath she seems gooier than an intp. i don't see inf Fe, she tries to relate to others and it's just intj awkward from no Ne and no F predictability as a result. i love tina fey.
NOOOOOO! Good lord, if Family Guy is INTP humor then I refuse to be an INTP.
Agreed. I hate Family Guy. Don't think I've laughed at FG once.

Back on topic, though, I have a hard time deciding if Liz is INTP or INTJ. She's a workaholic and is pretty directive, but at the same time she's sort of adaptable in a way you would expect a P to be.
Yeah, I think that's where the "adapted for tv" bit comes in. Plus, we INTPs can be serious about work if we love our work or want to make our mark! Also, as a teacher, I am much more directive/rules-oriented at work because if I'm as flexible as I am naturally, I end up creating far more work for myself, due to every student trying to be the exception to the rule. Liz is basically the captain of a group of people with the collective maturity level of an 8 year-old. So if she wants anything to get done, she has to be the grownup, even if she'd rather just be one of the kids.
