While dramas, thrillers, and reality shows are enjoyable, there's something unique about sitting down to watch a half-hour sitcom. Laughs are inevitable, of course, but sitcoms also offer viewers the chance to be comforted by the same story formula and the same characters doing the same types of things. That's why it's possible to randomly start watching an episode of a sitcom and still know what's going on.
Just like it's fun to catch up on your favorite hilarious TV shows, it's also fun to think about your MBTI and what show matches up with that. Read on to find out which sitcom you are based on your MBTI.
10 ISTP: Seinfeld
An ISTP or "Logical Pragmatist" is someone who analyzes, has confidence, and is also a "careful observer." Anyone with this MBTI must love Seinfeld since that's what the characters are like (minus George Costanza, who doesn't have the whole confidence thing down).
ISTPs don't like being "forced into extraverted activities" and that describes the gang so well. Actually, they don't really like being told to do anything, which is part of the fun of watching the show. They always have something to say about everyone around them as well.
9 ENTP: How I Met Your Mother
The friend group on How I Met Your Mother—Ted Mosby, Robin Scherbatsky, Lily Aldrin, Marshall Eriksen, and Barney Stinson—love nothing more than heading to the bar and spending time together. The MBTI that most fits this sitcom would be ENTP or "Enterprising Explorer." ENTPs don't like "isolation," which is true of these characters. They are "curious" and "spur others on."
Smart, "lively," and "questioning" are three personality qualities that you (and the characters on this show) have. From Ted talking about the latest object of his affection to Marshall and Lily wondering about their future, these characters don't have it all figured out (but are a joy to watch).
8 ENFP: The Goldbergs
Are you an ENFP or "Imaginative Motivator"? ENFPs "are willing to consider almost any possibility and often develop multiple solutions to a problem" and are also "restless," "friendly," and "sociable."
If this is your MBTI, then your sitcom is The Goldbergs. This wonderful and silly show follows the Goldberg family as the kids grow up in the 1980s. Budding filmmaker Adam, goofy Barry, singer Erica, and their parents Murray and Beverly (and their sweet grandpa, played by George Segal) are always scheming and coming up with ways to improve their lives or get what they want. They all sound just like ENFPs and they are so "supportive" of each other.
7 ESTP: Friends
If your MBTI is ESTP or "Energetic Problem-Solver" then Friends is the sitcom for you. The official description is exactly the way that Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe act together: "People with ESTP preferences motivate others by bringing energy into various situations. They apply common sense and experience to problems, quickly analyzing what is wrong and then fixing it."
ESTPs have "good humor," which is perfect here since all of the characters are funny, and they are also "rational problem solvers" and "fun-loving." Whether Rachel is figuring out her feelings for Ross or Monica is determined to be successful in every part of her life, the characters are both logical and silly.
6 ESFJ: Full House
The characters on Full House may have their own personality traits (Uncle Jesse is into grooming, Danny Tanner can't stop cleaning, and Joey is the goofiest uncle possible) but they all care about family more than anything.
When your MBTI is ESFJ or "Supportive Contributor," your sitcom would be Full House. The characters are "orderly" and "thorough" when it comes to helping each other (especially Danny) and they are also "harmonious" and "personable." It's also true that they "respect rules" since Danny is doing his best to guide the girls and help them grow up.
5 ESFP: The Mindy Project
The characters on The Mindy Project are "adaptable, friendly, and expressive," which is exactly what ESFPs or "Enthusiastic Improvisers" are like. Some other personality traits of ESFPs include being "fun-loving," "talkative," and "persuasive."
Whether Morgan is helping Mindy or Mindy is on the hunt for true love, the characters are always having a good time. ESFPs also are cool with group work, and the doctors on this show are good at collaborating and being team players.
4 Also ESFP: Modern Family
Modern Family characters also sound like ESFPs since they love socializing, especially with each other (even when things are chaotic... you know, the way that family events tend to get).
ESFPs are also "resourceful" and "tactful," which is exactly how many of the characters are, especially Phil Dunphy and Luke Dunphy. Phil, for example, often has what he thinks are the best ideas and he and Luke are often up to something (and usually nothing good).
3 INTJ: Brooklyn Nine-Nine
If your MBTI is INTJ or "Conceptual Planner," then your sitcom is definitely Brooklyn Nine-Nine. INTJs are said to "devise innovative solutions to complex problems," which is what the characters do every time that they are solving a case.
Whether Jake Peralta and Charles Boyle are having fun during a stake-out or Amy Santiago is proving that she's obsessed with organization, the characters are always able to close cases. Being an INTJ also means that you are "task focused" and that you like having dreams and working to achieve them.
2 INFJ: Will And Grace
Someone who is an INFJ or "Insightful Visionary" is "loyal," "creative," and someone who "works with integrity." That sounds like Grace Adler on Will And Grace, so if your MBTI is INFJ, then this is the sitcom that you are.
Grace shows these personality traits through her work as an interior designer. One good example is the season nine premiere, "11 Years Later," when Grace decides not to be the designer who works on the Oval Office. She is definitely following her values and morals and she feels that it's the right thing to do.
1 ISFJ: Everybody Loves Raymond
Everybody Loves Raymond is so popular, and one main thing that fans love about it is that Ray's parents live across the street and basically never leave him alone. If your MBTI is ISFJ or "Practical Helper," then this is your sitcom since it's about being around family all the time (whether you like it or not).
ISFJs are "traditional" and loyalty is key for them. It's true that, while Ray finds his mom and dad to be pretty frustrating, they think that everything is all good and that there's no reason for them not to bug him all the time. This sitcom appeals to you because you believe in family, being together, and helping out.
