    I do know that NFP types might perceive the sarcasm, but INFP's who I know IRL in particular seem more apt to respond to the comment in a serious/solemn way rather than just laughing at it. So it might seem like they do not get it. But it doesn't mean they do not. It usually just comes off as wanting to ensure no one's feelings get hurt, so they take the "safest" approach rather than the one that might seem dismissive.
    I'm more likely to respond in a serious manner, with twice as much sarcasm in return.

    Screw 'em if they can't take a joke.

    Something like that.

    I've been called, and I quote, "the king of sarcasm", but it's really only when i feel like it. If silly sarcasm switch is on though...you better be prepared.

    What people don't get about sarcasim is that laughing at you gets me off.
    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.

    Is that artificial sarcasm?

    Hm...

    I have trouble figuring out what's sarcasm these days and what's not. There have been times I've become extremely defensive over friends, when someone new comes along and starts insulting my friends by making sarcastic remarks about their behaviour. Sort of like "Ohh! Sims 3! That's soooo awesome!! Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!" - That sort of humour I don't appreciate since it's dark sarcasm, providing self entertainment at the expense of others.

    I tend to just make things absurd instead. Friend gives me food, it looks abit weird...
    so I make a joke about how tasty it'd be, even though I know in reality that it's probably going to be extremely tasty. So I'm just munching away: "I don't know why you keep thinking I'm being sarcastic, I really do mean that it's really really nice."

    It's sort of like a double effect, joking about being sarcastic.

    Is there a difference? Someone enlighten me.

    TODAYS MANDATORY TASK: Let everything you say today come out sarcastic or at least in a sardonic tone.

    There are different forms of sarcasm, and this "practical joke kind" (for lack of better description) is not one I find very amusing. It usually doesn't seem witty or clever to me. I've fallen victim to that kind of sarcasm for brief moments, but then I catch on, roll my eyes internally, and deadpan them. The serious response is to communicate that I am not amused by their lame attempt at humor.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
