    INFJ's I know laugh at other people's jokes and stuff, though seemingly less than others do... but I can't think off hand of any time when they've ever made ME laugh... except one, who has doubts about her type anyway.

    My INFJ (best) friend is actually really good at telling funny anecdotes/describing others behaviors/interpretations in a hilarious way. She gets many laughs.

    (And yes, I'm sure she's INFJ, at least as sure as I am of anyone's type.)

    I think she's developed her sense of humor as a mechanism for deflection.

    I am very playful... I love making others laugh. It's my default way of interacting, though with quiet humor at first to feel someone out. I do so by teasing, joking around, telling stories, being self-deprecating. I see the humor in most everything and call attention to it.

    I used to play a lot of practical jokes with people I'm close to, covertly, no one ever thought it was me and then when they did figure it out it would turn into a fun full scale war. I very much enjoy being mischievous mostly because irl no one ever expects it of me

    I couldn't tell a joke to save my life though and I'm never cruel.

    Same here. Some of my jokes are so subtle (even I myself sometimes don't notice that I am making them!) that people need a moment before they realise: "That was really funny!" I think my main way of joking is irony.

    I am also rather rubbish at telling anecdotes, I can't take all the attention of the audience!

    And I hate cruel jokes, I feel too sorry for the victims.

    I do caricatures that people think are pretty funny. But I'm not a comedian by any stretch of the imagination.

    I'm a total goofball. I have a very reactive humor, if I think of something funny about something, I'll say it. (I've cracked some great 'That's what she said.' jokes)

    An example is that in government class we were talking about beliefs and a lady who walked around naked in a mall. Every time someone brought that up I said 'Yay!' loud enough for the class to hear it.

    I could never be a stand-up comedian unless I got on a good rant. Give me something I hate/am irritated by and I'll rant and rant and depreciate the f! out of it.

    I threw you out of my head once before, do I need to do it again?

    I'm really not. And I have this habit of taking everyone else's jokes literally.
    +1, I can TOTALLY relate to taking jokes literally. I'll often get offended for the silliest reason when people are joking around, it drives me crazy.

    I am also unfunny, the only way that I'm funny is pointing out inconsistencies in things in life and pointing out how stupid others are. Or I can always do self degrading humor, that's always fun.

    My sense of humor tends to be intellectual and subtle in nature. Plenty of people have commented about the subtle aspects of my humor. Bantering is also a big part of my comedy act. IMHO, bantering is probably the highest form of humor.
