    saying nf's aren't funny is like saying you believe that typology isn't just an indicator and horoscopes are real. also depends on what you think is funny.

    i like embarrassing, silly and sarcastic humor. think ben stiller (listed as INFJ), larry david and yeah even though i'll be teased, at times adam sandler (listed as). i howled with laughter at little nicky although i may have been drunk or stoned at the time, i can't remember.

    you've lol'd at some of my silly moments or were you just trying to make me feel worthy? ;P

    I haven't read through the whole thread but shall chime in:

    I can be cute, be silly, make people laugh from that, but it's not "on purpose" funny. It's silly-funny, and I do like to have fun, so that rubs off on others in a happy humorous way. And I know some people will laugh more at that than others, but I don't possess the key to unlock that magical door to Laughter-Central. I am no comedian.

    My hubs could tell a joke and you would laugh; I tell the same joke and ... nope. Just the sounds of crickets chirping in the background of silence!

    My INFP GF is hilarious. Way funnier than I am.

    But I think the average NF is a lot less funny than the average NT.

    What is funny?

    If NF's and NT's are supposed to be different, then there is no way of measuring their "funniness". If NF and NT "funny" are two separate entities, then how is it possible to compare them?

    I said "I think...", which means that I'm talking about my internal metric for judgment.

    And I don't get what you're talking about by "different". If NTs and NFs are different, why wouldn't I be able to judge their funniness? Whichever one makes me laugh more is funnier. What's the problem? NF and NT "funny" are not two separate entities.

    I'm honestly pretty confused.

    Labelling people to NF's, NT's, SJ's and SP's already indicates their difference.

    Oh well, yeah, blah, never mind.

    Pssst... Don't use subjective evaluation... it doesn't suit NTs

    I didn't believe it then, but it's been in the back of my brain since... and it is correct.

    NFs just aren't that funny. They can have a wonderful sense of humor, quick to laugh and appreciate jokes. A few are funny on occasion and they will play off another's humor as well.

    They just are rarely the one who comes up and gets others to laugh on their own.

    Agree or disagree?
    Disagree, mentally I am rather quick and I can keep a room in stitches with witty sarcastic humor all night.

    When I'm in an exhausted, pissy, wrung-out mood, my "t" kicks in and I'm very funny. I can make INTJs laugh when I'm feeling that way.

    But I have to be able to tap into my darker, logical so to be that brand of funny, and that requires lots of stress. Fortunately, as a mom, I'm fantastically stressed a lot of the time, so it works out nicely for the humor of all at about 9pm every evening.

    Friends have likened my INTJ and I to a sitcom. Yes. We're that damned funny.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    Disagree! Vehemently!

    I can be pretty funny when I try to make a logical argument.
