    Well, I have a close IXTJ friend, who I think leans heavily towards INTJ, who is actually well-known in our ~social circle for his improvisational acting skills. He's also funny in general, but if you don't know him it'd be easy to think he wasn't joking. That's when people get offended and/or believe lies (jokes) he tells about himself... Or, alternately, people can't tell when he's being serious. so he can tell you something really personal that's actually true, and pass it off as a joke. He's a really good actor, but can be extremely awkward. I think being together somehow multiplies our awkwardness around people we don't know that well.
    Most of our conversations go something like this...

    Me: You have friends besides me?
    Him:No. They're more like compensated acquaintances.
    And by compensated acquaintances, I mean hookers.

    Me: I hate how when I'm trying to loiter in a bookstore the people who work there always bother me. Specifically, a man with a long ponytail, a receding hairline, and an obnoxious Hawaiian shirt. He always seems to be wearing one...
    him: You seem like the kind of person to loiter around bookstores. And if they wear Hawaiian shirts and ponytails they automatically give up the right to authority. Report him to the manager.
    Me: He is the manager.
    Him: Then he is defunct as a manger. Report him to the police.

    and on facebook: Thank you for commenting on me getting hacked. I'm glad we're good friends.

    ...maybe we just have a similar, odd sense of humor.
    But anyway, hopefully this is a good example of INTJ humor. Hopefully my INTPness isn't too distracting.

    My CDT design teacher is an INTJ. I know for sure because he actually agreed to do the MBTI test with me when i newly discovered it. He's got a really good sense of humour and loves telling stories, but when he gets serious, he gets serious.

    Overall, he's a really cool guy.

    I agree with the Sheldon Cooper-ers. I was gonna suggest that - he might be the funniest person on television right now! Unintentionally, of course, but hilarious no less.

    Been compared to Sheldon Cooper before.. more than once. It kinda feels insulting though.

    And everyone laughs at me when I tell them that I don't intend to get married and want to live with 2 cats (named "the cat" and "the other cat"). Or when I talk about my Swedish ex-room-mate. Or when I talk about my family and non-work related stuff. OTZ

    Actually, people think I'm funny for loads of things that I'm serious about.. and call me "weird" all the time. I'm sociable and "nice" (I'm not nice, just two-faced) though.

    My SO is this kind of INTJ. He is hilarious, though, only shows it in his personal life. Everyone he works with thinks he's ice cold. I love that about him.

    Just read this whole thread - pretty funny.

    I think the above is especially on point.

    What I've noticed about our (or, at the very least, my) humor is that it's often funny to the unbiased, impartial, uninvolved, objective, disinterested observer, but not to those who are partial, involved, interested observers. This is how I've explained it to myself in the past: we're like the character in a book or movie or show who says the dry, witty, assholish comment, deriding the idiocy of someone or some group around us, and the ridiculous manner in which they're behaving, and, when we do, those who are involved in, partial to, and have an interest in the idiocy we are commenting on/deriding/mocking, well, do not appreciate our mockery of them, and thus do not find it funny. Ever notice that the characters in a show/movie never actually laugh at such commentary?

    But the AUDIENCE, the impartial, objective, unbiased, disinterested, uninvolved, third party audience, they find our mockery hilarious, because they can see the situation for what it is, with disinterested, uninvolved eyes, and they see the lunacy we are poking fun at. They are part of the joke, but they are not the subject of the joke, and, as such, have no reason to take offense. They can just laugh.

    INTJ humor, artfully executed, can reach the heights of satire, sardonicism, irony, and wit.

    It is not for all, though. As some wise asshole once said, "Irony is lost on the dumb."

    They can be unintentionally hilarious.
