    I'm 95% sure on INFP, for the record. Hang out with an INFP friend, then watch a Colbert interview on YouTube, tell me I'm wrong.

    Colbert is hard to call, but I was thinking along the lines of....ENTP or ENFP? Stewart comes off as an ENTP. I would like to know!

    If Cobert is an introvert then what praytell does an extrovert look like? Cobert's humor is based on puns, word play, and toying with logic like a syllogism on silly putty. He entraps all his guests with his plays on logic to trap them in their own statements. He is the master of that sort of mind game. He jumps between ideas so rapidly that precious few can keep up. That defines Ne-Ti from what I understand of it.

    I could make a case for Ne-Ti in every ISTJ I meet if I want. Why would I, though?

    Colbert's INFP. Confidence doesn't imply extroversion.

    I don't really know enough about Colbert to peg him on type, but I agree with this statement for sure. I think both Leno and Letterman, to name two other television host examples, are also introverts, but they are very confident in their presentations on camera because they have practiced for many, many years of communicating this way.

    My best guesses on those two by the way would be ISFJ for Leno and ISTP for Letterman.

    Hmmm...I tend to think of Leno and Letterman as both extraverts, although I guess I could see them as introverts too now that I think about it. Johnny Carson was definitely an introvert and he was not lacking in confidence at all. (He's also considered arguably the best talk show host ever.)

    As for Colbert, the character on the show is basically nothing like Colbert's actual personality. The image he portrayed when he was on The Daily Show and on other things is fairly different than his current character. My best guess is that he's INTP, but it's hard to be sure with him.

    I think Colbert is an INFP - he has been described as extremely thoughtful, reserved and quiet when he's not playing a character. INFPs tend to be really astute in noticing nuances and are better at expressing themselves through writing, and his career has, for the most part, involved both of these. I'm an INFP, and I find it incredibly easy to express myself in writing - especially satire - but it's nearly impossible to do so in person unless I'm consciously trying to "play a character." INFPs can be confident and outgoing as well - I certainly am! But inside my heart it's a different story. I often wonder if INFPs all have a thread of tragedy in their lives that make us this way.

    Don't know the specific types, but I'd be willing to bet Stewart is an S and Colbert an N.

    Stewart looks at what politicians or journalists say, what they've said before, and what they do and instantly spots the hypocrisy. The humor comes from the fact that he is so carefully attuned to reality that it makes everything else look absurd by comparison.

    Different with Colbert. There's an absurdity to his routine: he plays a character, he bounces around topics, works in comic books and fantasy, there's more of an overall mocking of the system as a whole (media, government, nationalism...) than a Stewart-esque skewering based on the details. In that way, Stewart is the heir of Jerry Seinfeld while Colbert channels Steve Martin.

    P.S. It's kinda fun resurrecting dead threads...

    Yeah guys, watch the Today show interview with Colbert. Whatsherface, an intj, does her type's typical infp induced melting job. He has a big mouth, sure, but he's way more subtle than an entp would generally be.
