    Pretty much. I'm often reminded of the old Chesterton-Shaw disputes:

    Chesterton: "I see there has been a famine in the land."

    Shaw: "And I see the cause of it."

    Shaw: "If I were as fat as you, I would hang myself."

    Chesterton: "If I were to hang myself, I would use you for the rope."

    Is humor generally assumed to be an aspect of your most prevalent information-gathering function, or more closely tied to your primary function? If it's the former, it'd be Ne for me.

    I'm not very into Family Guy. The first couple seasons are decent, but only decent. Later seasons have a few good moments, but mostly turn me off. Similarly, a lot of stuff like Aqua Teen Hunger Force or Tim and Eric Awesome Show aren't my forte. Too much randomness is a turn off, as are jokes that are too easy (fart jokes, a lot of physical humor). I enjoy wit, but I also really appreciate taking something totally insane and running with it. And anachronisms.

    My favorite comedy shows are Arrested Development and Mr. Show. I also deeply enjoy, say, Wet Hot American Summer, some so-bad-its-good movies (The Room and Troll 2 mostly) and Wizard People, Dear Reader (this can be found online, and is essentially the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with sound replaced by the bizarre ramblings of a madman, and it is incredible, if initially bewildering). In terms of stand-up comics, my favorites working today include Paul F Tompkins, Patton Oswald, Zach Galifianakis (his actual stand-up), David Cross, Hicks and Carlin.

    Here's a couple of amusing things (to me):

    My ISTJ friend goes on forever about Arrested Development. I finally saw it and had to force myself to sit through several episodes, hoping something would eventually click, but it just does not hit any funny bone anywhere.

    I sent two Catherine Tate skits that I think are hilarious to an ENTP friend and he had the same reaction to them that I had to Arrested Development. Not even slightly funny. I do not understand how anybody breathing can not find Catherine Tate funny. Insolence never fails to amuse me. And my sense of humor when I'm loose and warmed up is smart mouthed like that. It just takes awhile for me to get to that point with anyone because it's risking a lecture about being rude.

    I also like plain stupid jokes, like

    Q: What did the Puerto Rican and the Moron name their baby?
    A: Retardo

    or

    Q: What did the Chinaman and the Moron name their baby?
    A: Sum Ting Wong

    So what's that all about as regards type?

    Ni humour makes no sense at all to anybody else, and Ne humour makes everyone roll their eyes.

    Funny! I don't know what that says about my INTJ sense of humor...

    Ni humor is subtle to me. You must look in to what they are saying as though it's a package that must be unfolded and turned inside out. I think Ni oriented people enjoy low-key humor, where the meaning of what someone says is hidden and must be observed from another angle. Sometimes the most mundane things can seem hysterical because of how paradoxically absurd they are.

    On the other hand, Ne oriented people make external connections that are like puzzles that must be pieced together from the outside in. References to other contexts, drawing comparisons between one thing and another to ensure that the audience comprehends the joke. It's more of an active process of perspective shifting, and more brashly absurd.

    Both types of humor can be sarcastic, since they both draw from imagination.

    I've met some hysterical ENTPs and ENTJs before.

    Q: What does a racist call those who take offense at racist jokes?

    A: Humourless.

    Not sure whether that connects more to the Ni function or Ne function, if any... Maybe someone else can suggest!

    Wow, nice.

    At first I didn't get it, but you have to understand the context, hah.

    Interesting... I thought Shaw was probably on the thin side, but didn't know anything about Chesterton's build offhand. However, that one pretty much spelled itself out!

    This would explain why I find king of the hill hilarious. Its the most mundane of shows...until you see everything from the worldview that the show is attempting to poke fun at...
