    Default INFJs and being funny

    How do you entertain others?

    One INFJ I know just appears to be herself without doing anything, but occasionally will produce amusing moments by being clumsy etc. She's constantly laughing at other peoples jokes.

    And funny comments, irony.. Making jokes of myself, and teasing others.

    I screw uo cliche's really bad, crack innuendos w/o realizing it, and say really random things (things come out of my mouth without any real thought many times)

    For example, this guy and I were talking about playing musical instuments and he asked me how good I was at it. I replied, "I was good at blowing but nothing else." saying it loud enough so my whole class heard me.

    That's pretty much me. My personality and how I display myself outwards is funny enough for most people.

    ALSO I'm really good at calling out "that's what she said" jokes.

    my mom's an infj and she's really goofy and makes me laugh. not much of a jokey person but silly sometimes.

    I'm pretty un-funny. My ENTP brother, while making a list of funniest people he knows, said this about me: "Furthermore, the person who I would consider my favorite person in the world (my brother) is totally not funny at all."

    I'm really not. And I have this habit of taking everyone else's jokes literally.

    Haha, sounds like something I would say. I love it. Sometimes I wonder if my unconscious has some sort of hidden plan to build a joke throughout a conversation and with a gap in intended meaning being the punch line. I never know when it'll happen, but I can sometimes feel things building up to that moment where I'll say something stupid. But I don't mind, most people know what I really meant, and that there's some suspicion as to whether they're correct on that assumption is even better.

    I am good at onliners; at random, unexpected comments. I joke with myself on the inside all the time.

    Assuming I'm with someone funny, I do laugh a lot. I sometimes think it must be amusing for the other person, because I'm so quiet, but my laughs can be rather loud, and I'm not self-conscious with my laughing or anything. So it's like...quiet girl with intermittent laughs and giggles.

    Sometimes I try to be funny, and throw in sarcasm or something, but usually I've found people think I'm amusing when I'm not even trying to be funny.

    I've also been told on a few occasions that I'm 'funny' -- not in a haha way, but one guy told me once that it was just something about the way I said things, or made offhand comments, and it would be 5 minutes after the fact and it would occur to him..'That was really funny.'
