    Yeah, this happens a lot when I'm watching movies. You can see it coming a mile away.

    Probably because the person is less intelligent than you, and you make them feel stupid. Or they are just ignorant.

    Haha I wish. I think everyone has called me lame at least once but then no one ever really gets what I'm on about most of the time.

    Eh wellio, Ne humour is awesome even when it's horrible.

So I prefer to err on the side of underplaying my hand rather than overplaying it in the humour stakes. Ideally. In a world where I am not me. :rolli:


    For what it's worth, I'll do the same thing where I say something really funny, but then blow it with my attempts to follow up. Then I'm left thinking about how I wish I would have stopped while I was still ahead.

    I have this to an extent as well. We all are sometimes unintentionally funny, but I have a tendency to get my biggest laughs from what I consider to be throw away jokes. Then, some joke I'm *especially* proud of gets nothing but weird looks.

    As long as you get your own joke, that's all that matters. It's not your fault most of humanity is ill equipped to understand real humor.

    I'm going to stick my neck out and say that INFPs have a broad range of humour - black comedy, sarcasm, puns, slapstick, one liners, stupid shit and everything in between- BUT are actually quite hard to make them laugh, specially if you can see a punchline transmitted

    I agree. I think mostly it`s hard to make us laugh if you`re really trying. The joke we saw coming is just not as unexpectedly funny as for example that spontaneously taken photograph where your face expression looks like you were a star in a horror movie.

    I occasionally start laughing too early at movies or when someone is telling a joke, because I see where it's going and find it funny even though it hasn't happened yet. This can puzzle others.

    I'm horrible at joke telling (and not great at story telling in general), but not bad at finding humor in the moment.

    In school I sometimes got the people around me in trouble. I would mutter a running commentary on the class and make the people around me laugh. Then, of course, I would feel guilty for getting them into trouble. The teachers almost never called me out since I was always a good student.

    In school I found it hard not to laugh continuously. Teachers thought I was laughing at them when in reality, my mind was just lost in thought.
