    INFJs and humor...

    I wondered how the other INFJs considered humor and lived it. I'm talking about irony and inoffensive sarcasms there (well, it's kinda hard to draw a line, basically, any humor that has the sole purpose of making laugh whatever it takes, with no under-purposes). And also about the kind of jokes you use to do.

    Personally I always had an unusual humor since when I was young. I tend to find gentle and "consensual" jokes boring, I like them when they're overly ridiculous or inconsistent. I like randomness as long as it just doesn't make any sense or has the purpose to make people laugh. I found out most people tended to just not be entertained by this, when I tell jokes I find really funny, I'm often the only one laughing - it's often because either they feel a bit awkward or because they don't really get it.
    I like it when a joke is developed and not simply "dumb and gross" (even though a good mimicry of a drunk man always get me), when it transcends the borders, when it's simply not "easy" - I think it's the case for most people, but I think that my humor exactly is too "hard", not "clear" enough for most people. I can't really grasp what actually makes me laugh.

    I also remarked that my sense of humor is totally reversed to my morals. Something that would utterly shock me if it had "really happened", it cracks me up when it's told in a joke (as long as the joke has a sense, heh, and not simply made for the sake of shocking people), when a joke doesn't directly relate to something that personally happened to someone (if it accidentally relates it'd still make me laugh of course, all is in the intent, you get it ?), it can go really far on what makes me laugh.

    What about you ?

    I'm similar to you. My humor is pretty personal, and I am really the only person who cracks me up, mostly because my humor is so random and even sometimes childish. But never grotesque or scatological in nature. I too appreciate original, well thought out humor, or conversely, something so absurdly random that the juxtaposition itself makes me laugh. A lot of people don't understand my humor, and may look at me with a cocked head of confusion sometimes after I make a more extreme or obtuse joke. Since my humor can be very dry, even biting, in sarcasm, and I have shocked people on numerous occasions, so I tend to reserve my true comedic side for being in the company of the right people. Under those conditions, anything goes, because I actually semi-pride myself on finding the 'line' of good taste and stepping beyond it. I feel like if you can't laugh at yourself and others, your life is going to pretty boring and sad.

    Well, anyone here on the INFJ forum can tell you that I definitely have no sense of off-center humor whatsoever. I am, in fact, 100% serious 100% of the time.

    Yeah, okay, I couldn't say that with a straight face. :)

    I find the movie American Psycho really funny. I guess I often like dark humor. I also like dry humor like in Best in Show. I think overall, though, I find a lot of things funny, other than body/gross humor.

    INFJ humor catches me off guard.
    One of my exes who was one of the least religious people I knew had me going for 2 days that she had become a Born Again Christian.
    She really followed through in her emails throwing in "god blesses" and had me going. I had no idea she was joking, and I acted all supportive even though I thought maybe she had sustained a concussion or something.

    It's also dirtier humor at times than I expect from you "gentle souls" which is just fine. It stirs things up a bit and keeps people guessing.

    My humor has been categorized as laugh at the world/dark humor/quirky cultural references. Dunno.

    My humor I'd describe as random and spontaneous, touch of eccentric.
    People either get it and crack up, or don't and it gets awkward. >_> *awkward moose!*

    And I'm attracted to sarcastic people. I think I handle sarcasm pretty well...at least when I realize it's sarcasm.
