    We changed chimney on our house when I was younger.


    Mother: WOW that new thing is huge.
    Me: Yes it is. Now we have the capacity to burn 5 Mexicans a month.
    Mother: WTF?
    Me: Alright 3 Mexicans and 2 Canadians a month,
    Mother: What got into you my son ? (shocked)
    Me: OK,OK 2 Mexicans , 2 Canadians and one Puerto rican guy.
    With efficiency measures we could increase throughput to at least 7 per month.

    ha!

    i had an INTJ friend in high school. one day, as we were walking home together, and i was doing my usual thing of running my mouth, not paying attention to my surroundings, i heard from far behind me, "wait up, and i'll walk with you."

    i couldn't stop laughing.

    Actually, not so in my case. Though NTP humor is hilarious..it's more likely to make me cringe than NTJ humor. It's why I started this thread. I was hoping to see why that was


    It's prolly the Fi/Fe thing again, but I've found that it's harder to determine when NTPs are actually joking than when NTJs joke. And oddly enough, to me INTJ humor is often more detached and less directed towards a person than NTP humor. Maybe it's because of the sarcasm, or the fact that they, as you say, don't finish their jokes like you do? I have no clue

    That's why the funniest things INTJs post on this site tend to be things they found on Google Images, rather than writings they've made up themselves.
    I agree. The text simply does not have the strenght to do the job right.

This is coming from my limited experience with the couple of INTJs I've known throughout my life.
    This is aloso quite true. Since they main thing is to shock people.
    If you want to see me smile creepy situation are you only hope. So the creepiest thing is that this is the only thing that makes me smile.

I was going to wait to post the following until I had gotten home and could find the exact chat quote, but with nocebo and digesthisickness' examples this seems like a good time to chime in with the example that came to my mind:

    ENTP: so what did you end up voting?
    INTJ: conservative, again
    INTJ: old habits die hard

    You're biasing your audience pick favourably before you even start! Half-assed! Get more confidence in your material.

    yeah, he said things like this all the time. out of nowhere, with a dead-serious look on his face. then he'd just look at me, dry as a bone, as i bent over laughing, which made me laugh even harder (and, he knew it would because it always did).

    damn, wherever you are, donald, much love, cousin. i still say that line to people.

    I tend to have a silly sense of humor. It doesn't come out very often but when I'm too tired and loopy.

    It's often making observations about people I see with my friends. People talking generally. I make voices for what they're talking about.

    Also I used to crack my friend up with this on going joke about a girl he liked in one of our classes. She had a very nasally voice and looked like a zombie to me, so naturally I called her "the dying girl". I said she probably had mold growing in her sinuses.

    We'd look across the room at her laughing with her friends and then laugh to ourselves. Because who knows, could be true.

    But another time, I cracked up at my own joke after we were walking eating ice cream sandwiches from a convenient store. He choked on his and then recovered, laughing. Then he said that was the best part of his day.

    I then started making jokes, saying that his life must be in the dumps if the best part of his day is when he's choking on an ice cream sandwich.

    My attempts at humor are pretty lame. Usually obscure stuff, but when people do get it, they GET it and its like a shared moment of understanding where they know they're on the inside where everyone else is not. When they reach that point, they always give me a kind of half-cocked look of admiration and disbelief and then it passes.

    Other times they're just plain stupid and based on some crazy connection that my brain made that no one else would think of. For example:

    The other day some people were talking about their tree that leans over the house and I said 'You know what helps with that... V8 juice. You just dump it near the roots and before you know it, its standing straight again'. I was all serious about it, and for a half-second they nearly considered it before laughing.

    Normally though, those 'brain jumps' of mine just end up in weird places. I instinctively kind of bring it all together and no one knows where the hell it came from... and even worse when I improvise or start talking before the thought is finished. Someone will be talking about a garden and suddenly I'll go "I should make some bread later! Jack will love it! You know, Jack FM? He's my friend, but he's a rude SOB..."

    It went from Gardening to me thinking about beans and then beanstalks to Jack and the Bean Stalk to the radio station Jack FM and how I probably shouldn't make him bread because he's rude...

    Even I sit back in those moments and go
    Embrace the possibilities.
