I'm inclined to say that extroversion is a factor in humor because it places the person more in touch with others, but I wouldn't hold to that.

    If you want to make an MBTI generalization you could probably say that NF humor is more personal than humor used to dominate socially and play with ideas externally. You would be less likely to see it in impersonal formats
    I agree with this....I wouldn't describe myself as funny, but I know NFs who are very humorous.

    I find NFs are clever and have a playful humor; it's not so much an obvious punchline as an overall style. NTs seem to think something is not funny unless it's mean or degrading in some way. They can be too vulgar for me also (vulgarity is pretty rare in NFs).

    I like how NFs can be silly and teasing, but not mean or crude. In conversation, I find ENFXs very funny and quick (banter is a lot of fun w/them), but no, they aren't stand-up comedian types. Although, I think Eddie Izzard is an ENFP, and a lot of people find him funny (including me).

    INFJs can be quite witty also, in writing anyway. I don't know too many in person, but a few I've talked to online come across as very clever and amusing, but it's in that controlled, almost stiff way (and I love that subtlety, so it works for me). The best example I can think of that is Morrissey, who people think is whiny, but his lyrics so funny if you get it.

    Sometimes my own sense of humor is odd, so it doesn't show its face unless I feel comfortable (but that's typical for my personality in general). I love to banter though....especially with a charming ENFJ.

    I find ENFJs and INFPs very funny. The ENFJs I know often say something unexpected and we both just laugh and laugh. INFPs are more quirky and are good with puns and clever comments. (I don't know enough ENFPs in person to comment).

    I think INFJs are funnier than they appear on the outside, but they show it a lot better with those they know very well. For me at least, I have a very strong inner editor which prevents me from saying some things or which runs it through so many times that the moment either passes or else it seems too stiff or thought out to say. Every now and then though I shock people with something they didn't think they'd hear from me because it doesn't match the parts that they do know of me though and it makes them laugh.

    But seriously, the only NF I'm aware of has a really quircky sence of humor that I usually don't get.

Lets be honest to be really funny you have to be ruthless!
    I definitely have a dark, cynical sense of humour but the people who are closest to me are the only ones who get to see that side of me. People that I know more superficially don't get to see it because I think it would freak them out to see me joking that way when I normally come across as being really nice and kind of innocent.

    Those who are content being normal lack the depth and passion to rise above mediocracy.
    To push beyond their natural abilities and create a reality from their dreams.

    I find that I have excellent humor "material" (i.e. good, creative ideas for jokes). However, my delivery is definitely a weakness. I've taken to whispering my sarcastic/humorous remarks to my husband or close friend when out in public, and then they deliver it to the group as their own with good success. It's like I can be funny one on one or with a small group, but with a larger group or people I don't know, my timing's off and the whole thing feels stilted.

    When I'm hanging out with my kooky intuitive friends we have a lot of fun playing off each other. Though whether we're really funny or just think we're funny I can't say.

    For those who think NF humor is a myth, I give you
