    Maybe it's because those types that have Ni as their main preference don't utilize change of expression or tone of voice to let others know it's "joking"...that's what I've noticed.

    I post things along the lines of Haphazard's jokes as Facebook statuses and halfway expect people to take me seriously.. and I delight in the possibility that they will.

    Um, no, this individual has openly talked about it and pondered why this is so. I mean, she does have a sense of humor, but is primarily very srs about certain things.

    So true! "What if such and such. Hahahahaha."
    "Wow! Did that really happen?"
    Possibly they don't hear the what if... when I make a joke it tends to come out a bit garbled

    Ed: My humour is mostly based on incongruity and word play.

    I opened this thread hoping to hear about iN Ne humor desciptions but all I'm gettng is you guys talking about how no one thinks you're funny.

    That to me is funny. Realising how unfunny it is, is funny to me. I don't know what that comes under. Probably the "not funny category." I know it can seem mean to some people. But most of what I find humorous is observational, situational and imaginative. N stuff.

    I've noticed that too. Depends on the person though.
    I don't change the expression on my face when relaxed, but I do try when around people as part of the social mask.

    I'd say the Ne users like to joke around semantics more. Random connections to same word, or so. Word play probably.
    I'm better at banter, and exaggerating stuff kinda like Hap's first post.

    yes, me too. I noticed that my kind of humor is somewhat sarcastic (I'm the one who giggles or laughs at most snark inside a movie) and uses hyperbole, exaggeration and such. And people took me seriously, like, "What took you so long?" "...I'm twenty months pregnant and you know it." "What, don't be silly." "....okay."

    I guess slapstick humor and dirty, adult joke aren't my thing.

    LOL, I was truly honestly joking about the "that's what we would like you to think..." part. Got you good.

    Is there something you're supposed to do when speaking to differentiate between a serious statement and a facetious one? ...hmm...nope nothing comes to mind
