    Post What's with the the morbid humour?

    I've been intrigued by how INTJs [or apparently declared ones ] like humour that is either morbid or dry-ish. How is that so?

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    Maybe you're INTP.

    INTJs tend to have the most "developed" sense of humor in my observations.

    Obviously you haven't read the INTJ humor thread. It was dire.

    INTJs tend to have a taste for the morbid and find morbid things funny, but they're not always great at crafting actual jokes. There are a couple of exceptions on this board, but a hilarious INTJ is hardly the rule.

    The way you worded your question made me laugh.

    A squirrel walks up to a tree and says, "I forgot to store acorns for the winter and now I am dead." Ha! It is funny because the squirrel gets dead.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    I like dark comedy. I'm not an INTJ.

    ENTJ here which shares functions with INTJs and if it's irreverent without being too crude or graphic, it's funny.

    Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?

    Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won't expect it back.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list.
