    Default MBTI types and (relatively) absurd circumstances.

    Being an INTP, I love things that are absurd. So, I decided to start a relatively absurd thread about something rather absurd itself:

    There was a "conventional" list of types and likely awards or, something along those lines, such as "type most likely to succeed," "most annoying type," "funniest type," etc. Well, here is an absurd version. Feel free to add some of your own. However, despite this being a relatively absurd thread, I would appreciate that you actually consider which type would be most likely to fall into each of the circumstances, rather than just writing a random type for the heck of it:

    Type most likely to change identity and flee to Albania in order to avoid taxes:
    Type most likely to work for Con Edison:
    Type most likely to die by chocking on a banana:
    Type most likely to be cast as a camel's arse in a Christmas pageant:
    Type most likely to be caught wielding a fake light-saber on camera:
    Type most likely to be a delivery man for a Turkish restaurant:
    Type most likely to kidnap a pregnant woman from a hospital:
    Type most likely to get lost in their own house:
    Type most likely to be the sole survivor of a devastating explosion:
    Type most likely to be run-over by a parked car:
    Type most likely to attempt to hunt a vampire:
    Type most likely to be hunted for allegedly being a vampire:
    Type most likely to be abducted by extraterrestrials:

    Which type...
    Enjoys eating cheese the most?
    Smells the best?
    Listens to music that everyone else hates?
    Has the strangest laugh?
    Still lives with his/her mother?
    Is able to eat egg-rolls in fastest time?
    Is most likely to participate in "Bog snorkelling?
    Enjoys participating in nude yoga most?
    Will probably end up in the hospital for blood loss due to a paper cut from opening a Christmas card?

    Please try to answer these as best you can. Come up with some of your own.
