    Default INFJ humor

    Is it common for INFJs to have a love for humor? I really enjoy laughing, watching standup comedy, and joking about things. The thing is, though, I only like certain types of humor. For example, I like humor that is witty and insightful in a certain way. It doesn't have to be sophisticated at all, but it shouldn't just be raw absurdity without any substance. When people are really type A, it makes me uncomfortable, and I often deal with it by making jokes about things. Like, if someone in life is really uptight, it's funny to joke about how their spouse probably yells at them for leaving their dirty underwear on the sofa or something (OK, lame example, but you get my point hopefully). Any other INFJs feel this way? If so, what makes you laugh?

    Everyone likes humor in some form...different types just tend to appreciate very different forms.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I enjoy stand up shows, morbid humor, banter.. Pretty much all types of. But I never really understood poo and fart jokes nor Monty Python.
    And I absolutely love making fun of what you mentioned, making fun of small things.. It sometimes makes me seem naive apparantly. Anyways every type enjoys some sort of humor.




    Maybe that was a bit cruel..

    Just about anything can make me laugh, depending on my mood. I really enjoy puns, stand up comedy, irony and sarcasm; all kinds of word play and allusions. I can laugh with people or at them, but I'm never mean. It's the small things really, like seeing or hearing something (which might not be funny to somebody else) and then my brain just starts to connect that to all kinds of other funny things which results in a marathon of laughter.

    When I look at the World and the people, usually I can't help but go off like a little laugh box

    Reminds me of something I said to a friend, "Reality is a joke to me. It's more amusing than most people realise."

    I'll laugh at anything that's funny. Which could be everything and nothing and all that's in between.

    I think most people are like this. Except for those unfortunate souls that don't have a sense of humour.

    That said, I have a particular attraction for jokes that make me think. The reward is greater because not only have I been given a joke, I've been given a quick puzzle. But then I also love parody and things like South Park just as much as I love the high brow stuff.

    Me too!

    I don't really like to categorize humour to high/low brow. When it's funny for me, I laugh, and when it's not, it's like...meh. Some things are funny at some point and the same things might not be funny some other time. As I said earlier, everything depends on my mood.

    I like to laugh. I like sarcasm and poking some small fun at others. Reality is a joke to me

    I love banter, sarcasm, and just messing with people for the sake of messing with them.

    Sometimes I'll just be thinking about something and it will crack me up. So there I am laughing or smiling insanely and people always look at me strangely.

    Am I the only one?
