    What was the joke, Pinko?

    I already told my mom the joke I'm going to (re)reveal on her death bed.

    Edahn: Knock knock.
    My mom: *looks puzzled*
    Edahn: Say "who's there?"
    Mom: Oh, sorry! "Who's there?"
    Edahn: DEATH!
    That reminds me of a Trigger Happy TV sketch where someone dresses up as the Grim Reaper & knocks on the doors of random people. Hilarious.

    That was last week, though. I know I’ve done silly things since then.
    Now I don't know about you, Edahn, but I think that's pretty silly.

It sucks because these people lose their spontaneity and joie de vivre in the process which makes life beautiful and satisfying. Enter Silly Therapy (tm!).

    The concept behind Silly Therapy (tm). Silly Therapy (tm) is a simple technique for learning how to give up control and break free of burdensome self-monitoring.
    I so need silly therapy. :-) You have NO idea how tiresome it is to always self-monitor (or maybe you do), but I can't seem to stop doing it. I loathe that I do it, and it's not healthy for my body/spirit either.

    But anyway, at times I can be quite silly - around my parents or my brother. My brother and I 'escaped' into silliness as kids. We had imaginary characters, although my brothers' were the most developed, and he was way better at it than I. So he'd be the character, and I'd just play along with it and interact with the imaginary character, because my characters were lame - at least compared to the one that he perfected.

    These days we just make up silly 'dances'. For example, the hopping on one foot with crazed look on face dance. Or the carriage-driving dance (i.e. 1800's style, sitting in a buggy, with the whip to get the horses to start moving). Etc. They're quite silly, and we look like total fools and the biggest geeks doing it -- but it's fun. At my most silly I'll prance around the apartment doing my little jigs. Or I might randomly go 'Mooo..' like a cow - stuff like that - I have no idea why - just to be silly, I suppose. :-)

    Then last night I got to be a kid again with a grin on my face while I watched 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' on tv and cooed at the cute little animal characters.

    I do sort of agree with the original sentiment of this thread. in my own experience I felt like I explored an element of 'silliness' (electronica-dancing-drugs-alcohol) and that it has probably benefited to me. Originally I felt awkward or extremely self-concious trying to dance. Eventually I moved passed the awkwardness and reached a point of comfort in it. I'd say this kind of silliness is best shared with other people.
    what have anyone elses experiences been with dancing (if any)?

    I've always danced. That's usually how I retreated into my head, pretended I was dancing with someone or on stage performing to the radio. So I never really got that self conscious about dancing in front of people. Most don't pay attention to you anyway. School dances, I'd move to a corner so I had enough room to bounce around, and now I go to con raves and it's a whole lot of fun.

    I think with dancing it helped that as a child I took dance classes and was pretty into it, so I wasn't ever insecure about my rhythm or anything like that.

    I did a lot of dancing in college, and I LOVED it. I couldn't get enough of it, and every weekend for a couple of years I'd go out dancing. The only time I'd be uncomfortable was when I was one of the only people on the dancefloor; then I'd be really self-conscious. But otherwise if there's a decent amt of people out there, I'm fine.

    I don't have any friends anymore who enjoy dancing, so I haven't done club-type dancing for a while. I rather miss it. It's probably mostly an age thing now...many people my age have families by now, and last year when I did go dancing, I felt almost 'too old'. Most people were a good 5 years younger than me, so I felt out of place.

    I love to go to kid parties like Bat Mitzvahs and do the YMCA song - talk about silly. Even the hokey-pokey! The Electric Slide is also fun. And dancing to 60s music or disco hits (think Donna Summer) is the best. Don't be smooth, let it all hang out.

    You know, the guy who wrote that song died a few years ago. The funeral home guys had a terrible time getting him into the casket.

    They put his right foot in, they took his right foot out...

    Well, you get the idea.

    I hadn't realized the OP referred to INFJs. I think that type can be too serious. I know I am much of the time. I am pretty silly in private, and actually kinda weird. Publically I am serious with an occasional, unexpected ridiculous behavior that shocks everyone. That is what makes being serious deliciously fun. There is nothing I enjoy more than letting people put me in a box only to pop out the moment they think they have me figured out.
