    I love banter. It's one of the main ways I express respect/affection towards people, although admittedly the sentiments are lost through translation. Luckily my English lit teacher (ENTP) didn't see it as a lack of respect. In fact, he often retaliated with enthusiasm.

    i agree! i used to have a friend who was from england and she definitely had a different, and for me, refreshing, sense of humor! i remember her saying something once about someone being a "fat pig" for eating something decadent (she was a waitress) and she meant it innocuously, but the american women with me were pretty taken aback by that. (not me. i loved it!) i miss her and her brand of humor. i find most of my friends (save one enfp) are pretty straight-forward in their humor and usually very concerned about hurting others' feelings. i wish i had more english friends! i don't like it, however, when bantering turns into anger. it doesn't with me. but i've seen it happen and been on the bad end a few times, so i guess i have to trust the people i banter with, to know that it won't turn sour on their end.

    There's an INTJ in this forum who makes me laugh so often,
    I have to make sure I don't choke on my coffee.

    Although I do have an ESTP buddy who has a similar effect on me.
    He can be brutal as well. Lol.

    I enjoy banter very much and I live in America, but I have seen people mistake what I consider flirtatious banter for hatred or aggression :confused:

    Yeah, it's things like that, where people get pissed off and think you're being serious, rather than an invitation to a conversation stream. She probably threw that out there, thinking someone would say something like "hey, no need to be mean there - as far as we know she could be some delicious pork chops" and so on and so forth. Americans will get very Te-Si (with some sort of F) in those situations: "you shouldn't say mean things like that!"

    "Banter" has become very loosely defined...
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    I once told someone I studied serial killers so I could improve their methods of killing.
    The person thought I was serious.

    I love bantering back and forth. I love talking to NTPs, STPs and NFJs as a whole. I think everyone has their own unique blend, but these types seem to match mine more often than not. (although STPs can sometimes go too far and make it weird and NFJs don't often go far enough)
