    Cool NFs aren't funny

    An INTP said this to me, oh, about two years ago.

    I didn't believe it then, but it's been in the back of my brain since... and it is correct.

    NFs just aren't that funny. They can have a wonderful sense of humor, quick to laugh and appreciate jokes. A few are funny on occasion and they will play off another's humor as well.

    They just are rarely the one who comes up and gets others to laugh on their own.

    Agree or disagree?

    I agree, for the most part.

    I mean, don't get me wrong. NFs are sometimes funny, but not as consistently amusing as NTs.

    To be honest, I think of the NTs, ENTPs, INTJs, and INTPs with highly developed Ne the funny ones. ENTJs aren't that funny either, IMO.

    Some people think I'm very funny, but they're usually female ENTPs, INTJs, or other INFJs. Everyone else tells me my humor doesn't make any sense, or even insist that I was serious and not joking.

    I dunno..an inspired ENFP with a silly streak can be pretty darn funny, as can an ENFJ in a sarcastic mood

    In general when someone says NFs, comedy doesn't immediately come to mind. Those NFs who do get the credit tend to be ENFs

    I however have a sister and some girl friends who are NFs and where it feels like when we hang out (one on one) my perspective is changed by them and we seem to laugh and find little things funny, like a total head change but not something one could write or video tape to another who is not in the head space. Its like their own NF laughing gas narcota total fooken head change.

    Also some male NF are quiet adept pushing the typical male stereotype boundaries whether is pseudo gay references or whatever...some hilarious bromance hijinx. Clearly not all male NFs yet a few chosen ones.
    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.

    We don't need to be funny, we have all the fodder to laugh amongst ourselves at the NTs and SJs.

    It all depends on what you are looking for.

    ENFPs have the best shot.

    Is it that NFs aren't funny, or that NFs aren't funny to NTs?

    I don't know OP, I'm always tagged as 'the one who makes you laugh' in those facebook things. I've even been told I should be a stand-up comedian at one point. Not boosting my own comedic ego though, because at other times I can be very unfunny, mostly because I do stupid/weird inside jokes no one else really cares about. Except my ENFP friend of course...

    Hence NF really stands for Not Funny.

    The latter is obviously far more important.
