    Comics like Emo Phillips, Steven Wright, and even George Carlin. However, I do not generally find dirty language funny, and physical comedy I can generally do without.

    Oh, and innuendo can generate hours of fun!

    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 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")

    SJ's aren't funny. At all. I go to church with 17 of them and have many SJ friends. Only two can make me laugh. That's because they get almost as stupid as I do with my imagination.
    Do it and see what happens

    Pfft, who cares? I'm easily amused, and that's all that counts.
