Personality type and 4 other lesser known facts about Ludwig
5) Super Smash Bros
Before rising to the top of the live streaming industry and eventually winning Streamer of the Year at the 2022 Streamer Awards, Ahgren was a professional commentator for the cult fighting game Super Smash Bros. The New Hampshire native first commentated in 2018, when he was part of a team of 20 casters covering GENESIS 5, a Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament.
Since then, Ludwig has commentated on 12 major tournaments, five of which he organized himself. The Scuffed World Tour and the Ludwig Smash Invitational in particular are among the most popular tournaments in the Super Smash Bros. scene.
4) Rarest personality type
Earlier this year, Ludwig was featured in the popular American monthly magazine WIRED’s YouTube video, in which celebrities google and answer frequently asked questions about themselves. During the “What” section of the video, the 27-year-old revealed his personality type was either “ENTP or J.”
“I don’t know the exact ones. I think I’m ENTP or J. ENTPJ I think.”
ENTJ is one of the sixteen Briggs-Myers personality types created by Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers. The acronym stands for Extraverted, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging, and only 1.8% of the population belongs to this type.
ENTP stands for Extraverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Prospecting, which accounts for between 2% and 5% of the general population.
3) Lud wig
A little bit of information only remembered by Ahgren’s oldest fans is the original type of content the man behind the mogul chessboxing event would stream. Before becoming a full-time streamer, the Jigglypuff star streamed often and made hats and wigs, which eventually led to him deciding to use his real name when streaming.
However, Ahgren eventually decided to become a variety streamer after he had a malfunction with one of his hats when it got stuck on his head after a freak adhesive accident.
2) Get up and improvise
With his perfectly timed quips and comebacks on stream, Ludwig has earned a reputation for being inherently funny. However, few people know that the 27-year-old performed stand-up and improv comedy while studying English literature and journalism at Arizona State University.
A member of the popular college comedy trope Tempe Underground (formerly Tempe Late Night), Ahgren used comedy to prepare for future opportunities as he felt he was wasting his time in college.
1) Pokémon VGC
Ludwig’s love for Pokémon doesn’t stop with being a Jigglypuff main character while playing Super Smash Bros. In recent years, Ahgren has won multiple Pokémon Video Game Championships, or VGC events. Most notably, Ludwig was invited by Wolfe “Wolfey” to his Wolfe Glicks Pokémon Sword & Shield Super Smash Brothers Invitational.
The event aimed to bring the Pokemon and Super Smash Bros. Nintendo communities together, and Ahgren eventually managed a comeback down the bottom tier to win the Pokemon Sword and Shield competition.
