    Rest assured, you're not For me, it's the smallest things when I'm walking down the street or listening to music or reading. I see something that I immediately connect to some other things and I just can't stop smiling. You know, it is the strangest feeling when this "connect the dots" thing happens. At that moment, it's like everything is so clear and makes perfect sense and you just cannot help but to smile. It is actually quite magical feeling and I often wonder if other people feel even a fracture of something like this. I'm sort of able to control it so that I won't start to roll on the floor from laughter but I can imagine that I'm still pretty silly looking.

    OR...


    something like this has finally happened -

    Well, I wouldn't say I smile or laugh insanely. More like laugh/chuckle quietly to myself. Or smirk. People only start looking at me funny when they ask me what I'm smiling/laughing about and I tell them. Then I grin all the wider.

    Ok, now that makes me sound like a deranged maniac.
    I don't laugh insanely. I -do- however struggle to keep from LOLing. And that's what attracts the attention.

    I do both of them. I can sometime throw out a very manical laughter and sometimes I just smile to myself, in there.

    I don't like to share it that often though and if I do; they've pulled it out of me.

    Asking too many questions and all too few answers, will make anyone grow mad about the minds around.



    EDIT: SHIT! I was so caught up in reading and forgetting the little sidenote that I use my Stalkers account.
    I am Gtzk in this post. (if she ever finds herself interested enough to post and sees two posts already made.)

    No! I think a lot of INFJs will do this if they feel comfortable with the other person; if they sense that they have a thick skin. I've seen them shy away from this if they think the other person's feelings would be hurt.

    I laugh all the time. Especially at very awkward occasions, such as movies where good people get whacked (in a funny way), for example. I get all types of humour, but I get some burning glares at me from time to time because of it.

    Yeah. This is my preferred style of humor and the mode I most often slip into. But the person has to be able to take it, otherwise, not fun. The fun is in the repartee. Works best with people I am close to. They know I like them and am not looking to wound. Engaging in banter makes me feel really close to someone, especially if they can give it back with a deft touch.

    +2 me gustas tambien.

    My sister says I'm sarcastic, she's always confused whether I'm being serious or not. So I appreciate a person who can read it and give back at same force - forms into banter. And I really like that. Banter and dry, black humour. Unintended, random humour, something that isn't just making fun of an object targeted but has depth behind. Dark and witty.

    How important is logic in what you think is good humor?

    And when you do find something worth laughing at (let's say something like TV Funhouse: Shazzang!), do you share it with others?

    Life makes death funny. It's probably a good thing more people don't agree.

    Humor is an escape; not from truth, but from despair. Somehow it's always the most serious people that resort to it (it seems)
