Stephen Colbert takes the Myers-Briggs test to learn who he really is

After a month of hosting The Late Show, Stephen Colbert is finally drilling down to the one question his critics have been asking since before he took David Letterman’s seat: who is he, really?

Colbert already knows which late-night TV talk show host he is—he’s a Kimmel—but when it comes to his personality, he’s a bit clueless. Does he even have a personality? he wonders at one point.

Instead of doing some soul-searching or embarking on a midlife crisis, Colbert took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test to identify his personality—with a camera crew on-hand to record it all.

The whole bit, in which he’s joking left and right with Julie Gross, Master Practitioner of the Myers-Briggs personality assessment, feels a bit like classic Colbert Report material. He doesn’t take any of it seriously, but he’ll totally own up to it when he finds out what his newfound personality type means.

At least now he’ll be able to relate even better to all of those fandom-themed Myers-Briggs Tumblr posts.
