Thread: NF Comedians

  1. #1

    Default NF Comedians

    I was watching a filler show last night about comedians and noticed a few ENFPs among the greats.

    So who are the notable NF comedians?

    I'll start the list with the two definites I remember from last night.

    Andy Kaufman - ENFP
    Robin Williams - ENFP

    I firmly think Eddie Izzard is ENFP. In interviews he comes off as idealistic and diplomatic in the way he expresses his opinions. Definitely Ne-dom also.

    I really don't want to imagine Williams being an NF. I find him incredibly annoying and I don't see that idealism in him. Kaufman, meanwhile, quite endearing.

    Really? I know he's acting, but when I think of him I think of his roles in movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Patch Adams, Jumanji, Good Morning Vietnam, and Good Will Hunting.

    I think a lot of actors would have a harder time playing these types of roles. He's wild and crazy, but I think he gives off a pretty empathetic, compassionate vibe - with that almost childlike humor of his.

    I could see maybe ENTP, but I'm more inclined to go with ENFP. I definitely think he's Ne dominant.

    I see a warm, emotionally intuitive soul in Robin Williams. Just saying. I could easily see him as ENFP.


    I agree about Eddie Izzard.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    MANY ENFPs! ENFPs are THE comedic NF type.

    George Carlin - ENFP
    Tracey Ullman - ENFP
    The late, great Gildna Radner - ENFP (Gene Wilder is an INFJ, btw)
    Eddie Murphy - ENFP
    Sasha Baron Cohen - ENFP
    Russell Brand - ENFP
    Dana Carvey - ENFP
    Mike Myers - ENFP
    The late, great Bill Hicks - ENFP (and a fave): YouTube - Bill Hicks - JFK
    And so on...

    Of course there are many others...Phil Hartman was an ENFJ and an amazing talent: YouTube - Phil Hartman, Alcatraz Tour Guide

    Yeah, I don't know enough about some of those, but I don't buy it for Carlin, Murphy, Myers or Hicks. And probably not Cohen either.

    Also, I disagree with noigmn about Andy Kaufman.

    Doesn't anybody know any INFP around, or at least an INF_?
    I know that entertainment isn't exactly made for introverts - but there has to be at least someone. Maybe a comedic writer?

    I've never seen Kaufman typed as anything else. He epitomises the ENFP mind let loose. What type would you think instead?
