    Gaius I strongly disagree.

    I make a lot of jokes, and I mean a lot. The thing though is that I don't purposely make jokes to make people laugh, infact I can argue that I'm not actually trying to make jokes at all, but what I say may come out like that. Anyway, I make people laugh all the time, and people tell me how funny I am all the time. It happens to be that I'm able to find something funny in every conversation I have with someone/people, even when having a serious conversation. I don't do it on purpose, something funny just pops up in my mind while I'm talking to someone and I say it, and we both laugh. Then again what is funny to you is not funny to everyone. I never seem to find comedians funny at all. I've watched countless comedic shows and till this day I can't find one that makes me giggle, so "being funny" is subjective.

    Being funny/making jokes in my opinion has nothing to do with type, but rather with character.

    No, I wasn't trying to make anyone laugh. I simply just gave my opinion on the OP, or did you think it was funny?

    Yeah this is what I'm thinking.

    It would depend on what you find funny and if it's humor is type related then SPs would find other SPs funny, same thing with SJs then more broadly sensors. NPs would find NPs funny, same thing with NJs, and more broadly intuitives. And then some things are just funny regardless of type.

    I think humor is tied to having the same/similar perception functions. Me, I just don't find puns funny. I know its clever and all but I feel like I have to force a laugh out. But then I have a pretty puerile sense of humor anyway, I talk about lemonade and strawberry sauce.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    NFs strike me funny, but I don't consider myself funny. One ENFJ comes to mind that strikes me hilarious on a regular basis on this site. Sometimes I strike myself funny, but I don't expect anyone else to think it is funny. 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 think it could be difficult for an NF to be standup comic who has to get past being booed off the stage and such. A lot of humor in our society is based on being thick-skinned. It's a way to demonstrate apathy or dominance.

    It seems that NFs usually 'pour cold water' on good humour by trying to make it funnier.

    lol, same here. People have told me to do standup comedy as well. I can make people laugh but I'm necessarily a stand up comedian. I don't plan out jokes and go up in front of a stage to say them, I say things funny in accordance to the topic/conversation at hand or something I see and want to show someone. Or while talking about something I can make an analogy to something else and in the end turn that into something funny. If that makes sense.

    It made me laugh out loud. I was watching BSG last night though.

    I find my INFP friends (and random posts on here) hilarious. Usually they make me laugh more than NTs. NTs often feel like they are trying too hard.
