    Default Curb Your Enthusisam

    I'm a big fan of Larry David's work. I myself am having difficulties figuring out my type, and Larry David's character in Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of the few fictional personas I can really relate to. Maybe everyone can, maybe not.

    I'm pretty sure he's an INTP or an ISTP.

    I - Akward in social situations, but he isn't shy and isn't afraid to say what he wants. This could be both.

    N - Also a bit ambiguous. Could be either.

    T - Probably a T, since he always attempts to correct other people's behavior and debates using logical reasoning. This may also be F at work, analyzing people's motivations etc.

    P - Definately a P, this one is without doubt. He constantly asks Cheryl to remember things for him, never really plans, etc.

    Functions:

    Ti is easily his most used function. This either means ISTP or INTP.

    I always see him typed as either INTP or INFJ.

    I just can't accept INFJ, because the whole show is based on his absence of any trace of Fe.

    He's focused on systems, explaining principles, and identifying things he disagrees with. I'll say INTP.

    Most of those systems and principles have to do with social interaction and standards of behavior. INTPs tend to be completely unaware, rather than crusade against them. An INFJ with strong Ti is most likely to be that neurotic and conflicted.

    Yeah they do, but it's about him being at odds with social interaction and standards of behavior. I figure a reluctant INTP thrust into a environment like that would find themselves turning their system and principle focus on that. I was openly cynical about social standards back in high school when I was pretty socially active for an INTP.

    As an INFJ, Fe is still auxiliary. And Ti seems stronger than tert or aux I think.

    I can't watch that show. He really irritates me in the way that Woody Allen does. I think he's too neurotic to be INTP.
    Maybe he's playing a NF's idea of an INTP. Or vice versa.

    I always considered his character un-typeable. Nothing really seems to fit.

    An INTP would wise up or withdraw sooner or laterhe keeps going back for more with the same intensity.

    Woody Allen annoys me too, but I don't see Larry David as being as frustratingly neurotic as him. Just more of a dick.

    Do you like any sitcoms?

    Did you at least like Seinfeld?

    Seinfield was bloody genius.

    I know it's the same writer. I find the self-consciousness annoying. Perhaps I should persevere.

    Hits too close to home?

    At least give the last season a chance, the show has gotten progressively better. The early seasons I didn't think were that great, a little slow, and not enough enthusiasm.
