    i'm seriously like the least funny person i know. if people laugh at something i say, for the most part they say it's because i say something random or off-the-wall that somehow redeems everything i said beforehand

    that or they get it after i explain what it going on in my head, in which case they can see how it was funny but the time for laughing has long passed. i usually keep my mouth shut and leave humour to my NT...unless we're by ourselves, i'm better able to fine tune my humour to his specifically.

    I don't know. I'm a huge fan of Groucho Marx style taking the piss out of someone especially if they really, really need a forced crash landing.

    And when it comes to that, I find most people are WAY too sensitive about themselves usually because they take themselves too seriously and that's one thing that really gets stuck in my craw. "Mean" humor, black/dark humor is a whole lot funnier to me and not because it's at someone else's expense. If you do it right, it's not. A lot of people get uptight about things about themselves and interpret it as mean when it's not.

    I know ENFPs are supposed to be sensitive to stuff like that and I am but I know when it's called for.

    True, they are funny.
    How do we solve this quandary?

    Neither one is an NF.

    There's no way to confirm either opinion. I have a hard time seeing Robin Williams as anything other than NF, personally. Simply because he "lacks logic" and isn't hindered by "reality" from very early on in his career.

    But at some point in time some funny comedian somewhere is an NF.

    Huh? I know ENFJs and ENFPs that both partake in standup and improv comedy. I like them, and people tend to find them relatively funny.

    For some reason, however, ENFPs can make me laugh the hardest. One of my closest friends, an ENFP, will have me– and I'll have him– laughing the entire time we see each other.

    So maybe the OP, and the INTP that stated this in the first place, should not– and this applies to nearly every case of definition within MBTI– make a radical assumption about someone because of the way they scored on a test.

    A big part of humor is just social dominance. The boss is always "funny" - or at least people always laugh at the jokes. Saying something mean or dirty surprises people and makes them uncomfortable or even a little afraid of the person, and so they laugh. Sometimes clever humor is mean or dirty, but I tend to think it has to be even more clever if it is using a copout tactic like that. Many sitcoms and second rate standups just says mean and nasty stuff that is redundant, unclever, and not funny at all, but people laugh when they feel uncomfortable.

    I've also watched people in social groups laugh at whomever is "popular" and deliberately overlook funny comments from people who aren't on the inside. People fulfill whatever expectations you set for them in two ways because a person's perceptions will filter out only what they expect and the social pressure of being defined externally will shape other people's behavior. Anyway, the premise of "NFs aren't funny" has more to do with this sort of thing than humor.

    I think the only proper assumption is that very needy and even a little sad NTs tend to want to burn (possibly because of some perceived social butthurt) and troll NFs.
