    I read somewhere that humor is the product of both sides of the brain, so I think it`s probably your upbringing that is responsible for the lack of humor, not you being ISTJ Maybe unconsciously you think it is bad to make jokes, because your parents were so serious and gave you that impression when you were young.
    I have ISTJ friend who is like you, but only when there are many people present. When we are alone or in a small group of people she knows well, she is really funny most of the time.
    Maybe you should try your humor in a "safe" environment with people you know well first and than move to larger audiences

    You know what's funny? I just noticed that your avatar is not what I thought it was. It looked like a bunch of coffee mugs sitting upside-down on top of a person's head, overlapping with each other.

    I'll give it away: Hamamatsu Photonics.

    Read funny books. Terry Pratchett is a good start.

    That's a good idea. I've never read him before, any recommendations on where to start?

    I've read some Douglas Adams, I'm guessing they're similar?

    Guards! Guards! Is my absolute favorite starting point--and the whole Guards series is wonderful, culminating in Men at Arms, one of the best books I've ever read, period.

    I used to not have any sense of humor. Reading funny, sarcastic authors really helps me start thinking in a humorous way.

    Probably similar to Douglas Adams, yep! Here's a reading guide/map: The Terry Pratchett Read Order

    Small Gods is hilarious too. They are all wonderful, but some are absolutely outstanding too.

    PS-my dad is ISTJ and likes to use popular jokes/funny stories for humor. (Readers Digest funnies, etc.) He uses funny accents and tones of voices for various things and he's quite popular.

    Also, he loves Terry Pratchett. I pass along all the books I read to him.

    Hmm a sense of humor...
    I would embrace your emotions. I think most humor has to do with people letting out their emotions in a socially acceptable way.

    How To Develop a Sense of Humour

    Step 1: Brush up on jokes. If required, obtain joke books.

    Step2: Watch more comedies. Eg: french and saunders. Little britain.

    Step 3: there are no steps to developing a sense of humour silly.
    It comes naturally. There's no faster way of killing it than trying to create one.
    Just stick with the little jokes you like - punning, anyone ?

    Good luck on this one.
    May you find your inner funny.

    Some wise guy once said
    "Many strive to be funny, many practice being funny, many remain boring sods"

    Lighten up, man. I'm sure you'll find your inner funny someday (:
