    I was surprised seeing it as well, which is probably why I remember it. Doesn't mean all extroverts are funnier than introverts, or that introverts can't be comedians...

    spirilis, when I read your response, I had already forgotten that I asked that question and thought you were giving your opinion on the article I posted and just hadn't finished your sentence. Like...

    I find a lot of humor has to do with ingroup/outgroup status, is culturally specific and depends on your frame of reference. The most universally appealing type of humor tends to be physical, like someone slipping on a banana peel. I know I love watching those crazy Japanese game shows and even though I don't understand the language it's hilarious. I do think there is a S and N difference in humor, but all those zany connections that Ns like to make would fall flat if there is no repertoire of knowledge available to make the connection. I find that much of what people say is N humor is dependent upon what they know to make a connection to. S humor I do think tends to be more physical and grounded, but seems actually seems more versatile.

    Most of the comedians people mention on the forum I've never really heard of or I don't find them funny. Using Monty Python as a measure of what's funny is kinda lame to me. Likewise if I dropped a few names that I find funny, I doubt people would have heard of them. I notice with my film group, people tend to think British comedies are the pinnacle of comedic excellence.

    The whole Dave Chappelle thing is a good example. He quit his show because he felt mainstream culture didn't "get it." The whole laugh at, not laugh with.

    Just to echo what some people have already said, don't put the pressure on yourself to be funny and witty. I know people that swing to the other extreme and never take anything seriously even when you want them to. Just don't be a wet blanket.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I actually don't think any comedians are funny.
