Which MBTI type is the funniest?

Funny: “The state of being amusing.”

This question is one of the most common questions that have been asked about MBTI. “Which MBTI type would make the best comedian?” and “Which MBTI type is the most fun type?” are similar questions that have also been asked. Although this question somewhat comes down to opinion, there is definitely some types that are more funny than others.

Extroverts are funnier than introverts. This is mainly because they have a lot to say, and they can quickly think of something funny to say. They aren’t afraid to be themselves and say what they want. Extroverts are also more talkative, and if they have more to say, there is a greater chance that what they say is going to be humorous!

Adam Sandler has strong intuition.

Famous comedian Adam Sandler is very intuitive.

Intuitive people are far funnier than sensors. People laugh because they are seeing or hearing something that doesn’t happen every day. This is the definition of intuition. An out of the ordinary approach to life. However, this can sometimes get taken a bit too far, and people may begin to say some very confusing quirky and complicated jokes that are too hard for people to understand (or people couldn’t be bothered understanding them.) Basically, to be funny, people must use their Se/Te to notice things in life that seem stupid or ridiculous, and say something funny and creative using their intuition.

As mentioned above, people need a strong Te to be funny in today’s society. They must observe what is going on in the world and try to make a joke out of it. For instance, TV shows like South Park and Family Guy analyze what is going on in our world with celebrities with Se, and then they will create a joke from that with their Te. Being a feeler doesn’t help with jokes, because most comedians make fun of people in some way or another, so being a thinker is prioritized in the comedy industry.

Perceivers are often seen as funnier people, because they live in the moment, and enjoy life to the fullest. They step out of the comfort zone, and say ridiculous jokes to make people laugh. They aren’t as cautious as judgers, and therefore they think more spontaneously and often think up hilarious jokes. From this information it is clear that ENTP’s are the funniest MBTI type.

    This is ridiculous mainly because you are looking at Meyers-Briggs at face value. It is not all about letters. ESFPs are very funny. ENTPs are funny. I know some hilarious INTPs and INFPs. I know funny ISTJs. It’s about FUNCTION organization, for Christ’s sake. EVERYONE is a “perceiver” and a “judger”; everyone is a “feeler” and a “thinker” — it just has to do with to what extent and in which order and for what use. Don’t write these articles under the assumption that everyone who is a particular type is exactly the same and has the same strengths.

      You should probably read some of my newer articles, most of these older ones were from when I first learned of MBTI 🙂
      I hope you find them more worth your while

      I don’t like the function organization way, which is supposedly the right way, because then my type wouldn’t exist. I am convinced that I have three introverted functions, which isn’t possible. My friend calculated how many types there would be if their can be any number of introverted or extroverted functions, and it was, If I remember correctly, 48,500 types. That’s a lot of types. Therefore I just do it the “wrong” way, by each letter.

    If your talking about comedians (i.e. professionals) i agree with you.
    However, in day to day life i think the funniest people are ENFPs, they have quick wit and creativity throughout extroverted intuition (like the ENTP), but there introverted feeling makes them far more lively and thus entertaining than the ENTP with his/her introverted thinking.

    Why did you pick ENTP over ENFP if you valued Te over Fe and Fi over Ti?

    as an ENTP i have to agree that the only type that comes close to being as funny as us is….yeah no one. ESTP maybe.

    Answering previous isfp “dumbest type” saying Colbert is INFP. WRONG .EPIC FAIL..Colbert is not infp “ritard” . Please don’t be silly and think before you write such confident rhetoric. You risk looking really stupid when proved wrong. Both Colbert and Stewart have the sharpest wits on tv , only an “nt” could be known for such talent.. not all their shows are on a TelePrompter and never the whole show. , hope this makes you stop blogging stupidly

    It is true that the present state of comedy is dumbed down significantly from the days of GEORGE CARLIN (ENTP). Nowadays stand up comedians male/females make middle school level jokes, both intellectually and complexity. Fart, lots of sex (like 80%), anatomy jokes etc!! Luis ck, Chelsea handler . And worst of all Dane cook. Those ppl are not Entp. Maybe they are enfp and this confuses those who feel enfp are the mainstream comedians. Ironically Daniel Tosh is either intp or entp.. He is funny and smart and so sick of the dumbness of Hollywood he went underground on purpose. Typical entp behavior .. Eccentric but not over the top.

  7. .... yeah right says:

    You do know that ENTPs neither use Se nor Te, do you?
    a quite boring ENTP

  8. ENTPerson says:

    ENTPs don’t even have Te or Se…

    ENTPs have Ti and Si, not Te or Se. That goes to ENTJs, whom Jim Carey is BTW.
