    I'm completely convinced that they're both ISTJ. Surely, they both spend most of their free time practicing the latest accounting methods when they aren't goofing around and trying to be so darn funny.

The ENTJ's I have known have had good senses of humor (when they felt like being funny), but I've never seen one get SO CRAZY and just let it all hang out like Carrey does. And he doesn't just do it at home with family and those who he's comfortable with, he does it all day long.

    Not to mention, I don't see the kind of Te in him that I see in other ENTJ's. There was a thread/video about Jay-Z not too long ago and when I watch his interview and compare it with Carrey, they're nothing alike. One is very calculated and business-oriented (with flashes of humor thrown in), while the other just has a full-blown case of goofball-itis.

    I don't write this to argue that Carrey is NOT ENTJ. Maybe he is, for all I know. But, if he is, then I have to completely reconfigure my understanding of ENTJ's.
    But the thing is its his JOB to be funny.

    This opens a whole new can of worms. I guess when I started this thread, I did so with the background knowledge (based on a biography show I had seen on Carrey some years ago) that he has always been a complete "nut" - even as a child.

    So, yes, if he is putting on an act for his "job", then this changes everything. But, if we take his crazy personality at face value (which I do, based on the biography I saw), then the argument that "it's his job to be like that" really goes out the window.

    Again, I admit that I have no clue what type the guy is. I'm no expert on MBTI. As stated earlier, however, I'm starting to lean towards ISTJ.

    I can't decide for Carrey if he's ENFJ or ENFP. He's definitely NF.

    After sucking at his job/life for a while, he wrote himself a check for 10 million dollars and post dated it some years ahead and used that as a motivation to get his career back on track.

    I thought this public statement issued by Conan O'Brien today gave some interesting insight into his personality and humor (from Conan O'Brien Says He Won't Move - Yahoo! TV Blog

    People of Earth:

    In the last few days, I've been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I've been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I've been absurdly lucky. That said, I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.

    Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.

    But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.

    Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.

    So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn't matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

    There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

    Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.


    Yours,

    Conan

    Well it also could not be an act, mabye hes an ENTJ who loved comedy so much that he wanted to become a comedian and being an ENTJ wanted to be successfull at that.

    It should be very, very easy to figure out if Carrey extroverts Ne or Fe.

    You did not follow the Ne-ness of our conversation. The poster had correctly pointed out that Carrey's behavior was uncharacteristic of an ENTJ...

    How bout this, we give you Jim Carrey and you give us Julius Caesar. (In my opinion they are both ENTPs but you just love sticking your flag over our territory).
