I think my humor is a reactive kind, I say what witty thing comes to mind when someone says or asks something. It gets better the more I know the people I'm around so I don't accidentally make rude or unfairly general assumptions for the joke. I'm very good at timing, just bad at the meat of the joke. If nothing comes to mind, I'm not funny.

1-I have met a varieties of types including NF that are very funny and can came with clever sayings or comebacks, thought I believe SP have and advantage over here.
2-I have been said that I'm funny or say things that makes people cracks up but of course I don't always intend to, a lot of things just comes out of my mouth without none intention of being funny or amusing and it ends up being.
3-This thread a bit stereotyping and I hate that but whatever...I think what it is funny for someone might not be neccesarily being for others; for example I met an ESXP(a type related to being funny or amusing most of the times) in my classroom last year, Guy was a loud-spoken idiot that always end up saying some stupid or idiotic shit and he thought he was the cool joker or clown of the class while most people just think about him as and obnoxious and ridiculous.
ENFPs are the funniest people I've ever met. Sometimes they don't even have to say anything, just their facial expression is hiliarious. Enneagram types play a role too. I know ENFP 2's, and she's not really funny, just silly. On the other hand, ENFPs 7's are born again comedian, they're
just bat shit insane, I LOVE THEM.
Eh, not accounting for personal taste, you have to know funny INFs well before you get to see them in full flight. Otherwise, you get the humor-lite version. Funny INFs are funny in a personalized way, using the things they know about you once you have some comfortable history together.
I can't take the gloves off until I know a person well enough to know I won't go too far. I once told a morbid, offensive joke when I was 13 that cut too close to the bone for the recipient. Stuck with me for life.
My family and the men I have dated particularly mention that I am one of the funniest people they know. *shrugs* With anyone else and at TypeC I am typically more concerned with not being offensive/keeping my humor to myself. Irl I don't like playing to a crowd either, (too impersonal), so it's also more of a one-on-one thing.
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.
When I was with a group of friends out at an amusement park one of my INFP friends would tell me a joke and I would deliver it. Since it wasn't on purpose it took a bit for us to realize it was happening.
I suck at telling already prepared "jokes" - I can always ruin them, although I've gotten better at it over the years. It was pretty much just as funny when I would butcher the joke though. I ended up tagging along "wasn't that a GREAT story" to the end of my lame stories and usually people laugh at that because I'm making fun of myself.
