    Default Do You Have a Strange Sense of Humor?

    Hello, fellow NFs, welcome guests, and others ^.~

    I'm an ENFP and I'm wondering if other xNFx have had this type of issue/experience. If any xxxx guests would like to share their thoughts, please don't be shy. I'd love to hear from anyone and everyone...

    Unless you're going to be a troll. I don't even know how you could be a jerk on a thread like this, but just in case... you fall into the "others" category, btw.

    So, do you have an odd sense of humor, or one most people don't understand?

    As background information:

    My humor is somewhat diverse. I adore irony, sarcasm, and general wit, but I'm just as willing to laugh at immature/cute humor. I also like perverted humor, a la "That's what (s)he said", but nothing too coarse or vulgar/offensive.

    I HATE toilet humor, negatively racist humor, or cruel jokes. I don't think I'm that sensitive, but I just don't find it funny.

    I always thought my sense of humor was decently normal. I mean, most kids didn't get it, but I always had friend who I thought did. However, my INFJ friend and I were discussing an INTx friend's posts, and while I found his little quips hilarious, she either didn't get them or wasn't even vaguely amused. Afterwards, I began to notice that my sense of humor greatly differed from my family and other friends as well. I did meet other ENFPs online whose senses of humor seemed very similar though, which made me wonder if it had anything to do with type or temperament.

    Yes I like a lot of word play or verbal humor and dry wit. Also, my sense of humor has always been pretty dark...I'm always watching black comedies and reading/watching mystery or horror that has comedy weaved into it.

    And though I'm totally disgusted by real rape, I find rape jokes excessively entertaning.

    I also think random, odd things are funny.

    I'm usually pretty perceptive at picking up on subtle humor, I love British humor, I even get Russian humor (which my Russian math professor said was extraordinary, I don't know why, apparently in his experience most Americans don't realize how funny certain Russian writers are supposed to be).

    On the other hand, "stupid" humor gets on my nerves and I don't find it funny at all. Like, I don't like movies like "Dumb and Dumber." Stuff like that isn't funny to me.

    yeah i agree with both of you guys.

    yes: irony, cute, sarcasm, self-aware immaturity, witty perversion, darkness.
    no: potty humor, cruelty, stupidity.

    i like my humor "educated".

    Ya I can have an extremely dark sense of humor and I've seen alot of other NF's like this to. I almost want to say its the norm for ENFP's. I wouldn't say that mine is "weird" Though occasionally I find interaction with different people hilarious and they don't get it.

    I don't like cruelty in my humor. I don't find cruel acts themselves humorous.

    I don't like harping relentlessly on stereotypes.. I find them boring and annoying after a while. So, people like Tosh.O don't tickle anything in me. The stereotype jokes have all been done.. and done.. and done again.. and repeated.. It's enough for me.

    My favorite sort of humor is inside jokes, I think. Something you and a friend, or you and a group of friends had happen that turns into something funny. I enjoy those sort of references.

    I find references funny.

    Where I will differ is I do find stupid humor funny. I LOVE bad movies.. things that make you want to slap your forehead. When they happen IRL, not so much, but on movies they are funny to me. I don't mind vulgar humor here and there, but when it is a person's entire funny bone, it's time to throw it to the dogs.

    My husband (ENFP) and I (INFP) laugh a lot at all kinds of little things. Things people say on the radio or television. It's often because there's something absurd or contradictory about what they're saying, not because they are trying to be funny. And often we seem to get the funny side of it together at the same time. We both like black humour, so does the rest of my family, who are nearly all NT.

    We like puns and word humour.

    He likes slapstick - farce - pies in faces, candid camera and things like that.

    I hate that!

    I do have a quirky sense of humour, and outside of the family, when I laugh, people sometimes look at me quite strangely.

    My usual type of humor is the spontaneous kind that can't be repeated and doesn't work with just anyone, but is in a way tailored to the person I'm talking with. The second type is the one that is based on drawing some weird connections from ordinary things. Like "Think about that commercial, if it would be like this and this.." but in a more short form.

    On top of that, I find "dead baby" jokes funny.

    I agree with a lot of what has been said. My sense of humour is weird in that I don't like 99.9% of comedies because I actually have a brain. :rolli: I recently got mockingly accused of being humourless because of this, which is just stupid because I'm always joking around.

    In terms of TV and film comedy, I really like silliness, word play, irony etc. I must say though, in day to day life I really enjoy dry, dark humour (but not necessarily black comedies) and witty, in-joke jibes (that don't cross the boundary to becoming cruel). My ENTP friend just recently spent several days together creatively making fun of my height and abnormally sized body proportions and it was hilarious.

    The apparent intricacies of humour are neither complex nor simple. Humour is in the moment a facilitation, an extension of personality creating a sense of ease. Each individual is receptive of humour, interpretation between perception and value changes from experience.

    Yes, I probably have a strange sense of humour.
