    ENFP Profile
    Not familiar with CB, but the other two are certainly ENFPs.

    Wrong on all three typings, please pay attention to the actual attitudes of the functions if you are unsure.

    ENFPs are by far the most overrepresented MBTI type among successful comedians, both in standup and shows like SNL. Even more so among improv groups.

    Arguably the best player in the history of a sketch comedy show with the history of SNL an ESFJ? Think a bit. Can someone who primarily extroverts Ne be an SJ of any kind?

    He's not an ENFP. I suspect he's an INTP: YouTube - Stephen Colbert Full Interview on The Today Show.03-19-2K9.

    Comedy is supposed to be funny. It involves humor.

    And anger, incidentally, drives a hell of a lot of great comedy. Lenny Bruce, anyone?

    I think Extrovert because he seems quite talkative and initiating in groups, for example in the Paley Centre convention that's on Youtube. Also, most tellingly to me, his interaction with the audience before each recording is reportedly highly energetic and spontaneous. It sounds like he feeds off the audience, and all kinds of audiences far more than an Introvert would. During one Conan interview which I'll try to find again now, he began dancing and singing around the stage, getting the audience to join in, and in another he crowd-surfed during the commercial break. This despite the fact that he's working with groups of people all day (writers, editors etcetera). It seems there's really no room for time alone in his work schedule on the show and I'm not sure how an Introvert would thrive while keeping that up continuously, as he seems to from behind the scenes footage.

    I think Feeling because he seems very emotionally expressive and comfortable talking about feelings (see how easily sincere "I love [someone]" slides off his tongue twice in the interview I linked to). He's also quite religious and the way he discusses this is quite Feeling oriented: he talks about being 'moved' etc., not about finding alleged fulfilled Biblical prophecies or accuracies, or reasoning that there must be a Creator, as Ts would tend to. Look at this for example from 2007:

    The minute I went to college, I didn't believe in God. The minute I had an opportunity to sort of be out from under the constant exposure to my faith, I accepted the opportunity to not believe. And I was very convinced of my atheism for a long time, and I was very depressed about it. I wanted very much to believe... I wanted the idea that I would see my father and my brothers again, and it was heartbreaking to think that that wouldn't happen. The fool says in his heart that there is no God, and I was sad to be that fool. I would rather have been a fool for God, but I was so convinced that believing in God was foolish. There were five years maybe when I couldn't think of why to get up. That wasn't good. But the desire to believe always was there. The fact that thread was never cut was helpful. Then one day, a Gideon gave me a Bible walking down a street in Chicago.... [...]

    “It was so cold, I had to crack the pages,” he recalls. “I flipped it open, and it had a list of things to read about if you were feeling different ways. Under ‘Anxiety,’ it said ‘Matthew V,’ the Sermon on the Mount.” He paraphrases: “‘Who among you by worrying can change a hair on his head?’ It spoke to me.”

    None of this is really conclusive, but these things together make me lean quite far towards F. I too would LOVE to believe in some kind of religion, and I've a few times started thinking, screw it, it feels so real when I immerse myself in it, I'll just assume there are explanations for these logical flaws and devastating facts I see and let myself believe anyway, I'll go and get baptised tomorrow, lol... but I'm not a strong enough Feeler to actually have done that yet. I usually lose touch with that intense feeling by the next morning and so regain the ability to think it through logically and thoroughly.
