    It's true. I tried, I cried.

    But can you dodge a wench?

    Personally, *I* think I'm hysterically funny.

    Yep.

    I thought I was the only one who thought so.

    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.
    True.
    My (ESTP) friend and I always playtease our (ESFJ) friend. She's so simple-minded sometimes. It's really easy to pick at her.
    But I couldn't imagine doing that to anyone else I haven't known nearly as long as I've known her.

    This is me lately.
    I was just telling a friend (I'm not sure of his type; he might actually be NT) the other day about how cynical I've been lately because I'm so stressed out. Used to interacting with certain other types of people, I figured he was going to try and give me a pep talk about how I should cheer up and stop stressing out (I hate when people tell me that), but instead he just starts laughing and says something to the extent of "Well, cynicism can be really fun. Enjoy it!"

    I love that guy

    Oh yeah.
    I've nearly smacked a NTP or two about that a few times.
    Drives me nuts.
    I love them and their jokes, but that pisses me off!


    What I find funny varies: puns/wordplay, situational comedy, doing normal things in an unusual way<<<<<I'm best at this (typically in writing), completely random things said or done, etc.
    My humor usually has a point to it. Like I'm trying to tell you something about my stance on a particular issue or reveal some deeper truth. That's NF funny for you.
    I'm pretty self-depreciating, too. It works for me. Plus I never really run out of material.

    I went to a film festival the other night, and there was a director named Atom Egoyan. I shrugged and said to my friend, "He's probably an only child."

    The following comedians are said to be of the Idealist temperament:

    Billy Crystal
    Martin Short
    Sinbad
    Adam Sandler
    Bill Cosby

    Probably plenty more...I'm not in the mood to research it...

    From my experience, any type can be funny. ENFPs are hilarious. ENTPs can be funny too. ESFPs, ENFJs, ESTPs all have the capacity to be pretty funny. Really anyone can. EP's make me laugh the most on average though. They are silly, in a good way. I love that about them.
    A hero is someone who does the right thing without expectation of reward, just because it's the right thing to do.

    No- it stands for New Funny- NF's are putting the system on trial and are light years ahead of other comedians and humor- the rest of the world is having to catch up with us.
