    Oh yeah. Especially when I'm with my ENFP friend. Certain people being that out in me more. I like to laugh and to make other people laugh.

    Photo #2 looks like a photo I would take. And my sense of humor can get very wacky - sometimes I wonder how I would act high on marijuana (or even funnier - tripping on acid)

    But to answer the question - yes, fo sho. Aux Ne pretty much says it all. Combined with Ji dominance - it keeps the strangeness in line, in other words, it can make sense out of it - which makes it all the more funnier.

    Drugs don't make you funnier.

    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.

    Not for everyone, but it happens. I'd say it depends on the person/thought process.

    Well I've only come across one INxP in my life. An INTP male, much older than me. He comes across as a nice, overly enthusiastic, overly organized, indecisive and carefree person in social situations such as getting a subway sandwich made. Many times he does not understand that he is over complicating things, or that people don't get what he's saying. Also, he can sometimes do some really "socially awkward" things like getting down on his knees to pick up something from a shelf in a supermarket right next to a female (who backs off a couple of steps cause she clearly doesn't know wth this guy is doing). I believe that there are two parts to this whole "jack sparrow" syndrome; he doesn't give a f*ck and he isn't comfortable in social situations. I know from close contact with him that he is way to occupied in his own mind at figuring things out (or simply complaining about being in a social situation in the first place) that he doesn't care how he looks like while he is doing what he's doing. Although I have definitely never seen him resting his head on somebodies shoulder, hugging someone or just generally having any physical interaction with anyone.

    yup.

    I most assuredly do not come off this way. At some point earlier in my 20s, I discovered two things:

    1. I'm actually pretty good at making people laugh
    2. Humor is a better foundation for relationships than intellectual discussion of l ideas, which just intimidates most people. Even if the person is not intimidated by that kind of thing, humor won't hurt, only help.
    Which is an excellent point. Humor can act as a less-scary substitute for more formal social skills.

    I like varied kinds of humor, so I can adjust them for the situation. I'm careful about using black humor unless I'm around people I know really well. A lot of times, I'll pack different kinds of humor into something. I'll say something scatalogical, but with an element of wordplay, which covers all my bases among people who have any sense of humor at all.
    I have a variety of humor tools in my belt as well. I'm not fond of the tests that make you pick a humor style to somehow define you; I can range from dry to goofy, wordplay and puns to slapstick, veer between blatant farce and sarcasm, throw out a double entendre, etc. It just depends on the context and the mood.

    INFPs that rely too heavily on Fi and INTPs that really too heavily on Ti are both unfunny, but in different ways.
    I think my best friends from the INP crowd are the ones who lean more heavily on Ne, or at least have a decently strong one they're not afraid of. It's not good to get us together into a room of more serious-minded people, though; we just kind of feed off each other and have to work to rein things in when necessary.

    Yeah... people aren't intimidated by the idiot that decided to randomly do a Chewbacca impression.

    I'm not sure typologically wise, but I like social environments where Ne is accepted, and there is very little that is prohibited. Otherwise, Ti is just straining to logically determine what is supposed to be "acceptable" which it isn't really set up to do. Being around people with whom you feel like you can say whatever is on your mind is pretty awesome... I don't think the younger me thought it was even possible.

    Why, because the more serious people just get confused/annoyed if things aren't reined in?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Yes, and while acting out a scene from "The French Lieutenant's Woman"... in French.

    it takes some time to find your wings... or your in(s)anity.

    Now you've got it.
    Which usually just makes things funnier.

    On a different forum a few minutes ago, I found myself challenged by someone to write a trashy Spanish romance novel involving a bat guano fetish and a variation on Puss in Boots.

    Oh, the fun never ends!

    I am openly goofy when around people I am more emotionally comfortable with. This does not mean they have to be the ONLY people around, but it's like they'll put me at ease regardless of who else is there. I'll ping between between goofy & dry banter, and sometimes I'm weird & goofy due to that "absent-mindedness" associated with NPs. I have a soft spot for absurdities, but can present it "seriously" which makes me look stupid sometimes.

    I started "hiding" this when younger because I got some negative reactions as a child, was pegged "weird" by peers, and the subsequent self-concousness made me withdraw quite a bit.

    A lot of it depends on my mood & energy level also. I'm cranky far too often, but when in a good mood I tend towards goofy over that "gentle, sweet" description given to INFPs.
