In general I find NFs funny unless, as mentioned by Tallulah, they're deliberately trying to be earnest. NFPs especially are hilarious.
NTs are a mixed bag for me in terms of humor. Wordplay, especially if it's not inappropriate or bordering on offensive, or just total nonsense, is boring. Pretentious stuff is even worse (the whole "what a regular Lacanian you are, har har" intellectual "jokes" make me roll my eyes 360 degrees in their sockets). The best they're good for is being wittily inappropriate and dryly making fun of other people.
I think NT style emotional and ironic detachment gives an advantage when it comes to observational humor. You have to be standing back to look in, right? It also might help with dark humor, wordplay, sarcasm, satire... and narcissism apparently.
I don't know that many NFs but I just wanted to stress out that it's not always what you say that is funny but how you say it. And I think NFs can do that just as well if not better than other temperaments.
I agree. For example for "dead pan" to work for me the performer has to have very tight presentation. If not an F dom good use of whatever Fi/Fe which seems floating around is essentially a necessity in presentation (or at least smash some large pieces of fruit with a humongous mallet for the "splatter effect")
I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.
