NTP Humor: ('Active') Monty Python, Stephen Colbert
IxTJ Humor: ('Passive') Leaders of the Unintentional Humor
- Often the 'Straight Man' in comedy duos.
- Very deadpan.
- Humor often derives from astute observations with little intent to be humorous.
- Full attempts to be humorous usually doesn't follow through. It confuses more than amuses. But the IxTJ may be chuckling to themselves the entire time.
- Delayed response in grasping social mores/pop. culture can be humorous (to other people).
examples: Dr. Temperance Brennan from 'Bones'
