    ENTPs and Humor

    Every once in a while i read that ENTPs are described as witty clowns.
    I tend to make jokes all the time but they are so very dry and subtle that most people don't even get them. yesterday a friend even said i was so "serious" which i almost took as an insult. i actually am a very cynical person but i hardly take anything "seriously" but except for my jokes i am painfully direct.
    i asked myself what kind of humor is meant in those descriptions and what kind of humor other ENTPs use and if it is used to make a point or just for personal enjoyment . (actually this matter is very serious to me). so just tell me what you find funny, and maybe others types who read that ,too so i can compare :D

    I make a lot of subtle jokes as well, but I also make a fair amount of straight out in the open jokes.

    Most people don't catch my jokes and I have been considered an asshole for it, when I meant nothing bad at all.

    I do a fair bit of insult humor, and I "always have a fucking comment on everything" according to a friend.

    I can relate and have been called serious too. Maybe it springs from my humour being typically dark and subdued at some times, annoying and provoking at others, and quite politically incorrect in most of them...

    My humor tends to rely a lot on metaphors and references. sarcasm I don't really good because it's so easy. I definitely have a dark and perverse sense of humor as well as a love of the absurd. I like pushing ideas to their furthest comedic limits until the end is so completely bizarre. I have 2 friends from college - one INTJ the other ISTJ - and this is pretty much all we do, who can stretch the idea the furthest. one practical example is a "bean dip" war that we are currently fighting

    it's basically who can bring the bean dip with the most layers to the hostess' party.I'm currently the record holder with a vat of 15 layer bean dip ....let's just say the after results of all that fiber+sour cream+cheese = none of us wanting to tempt the intestinal gods by going further than 15 layers

    Here is an example of what I joke about. I am in the army so there are a billion rules. I constantly mock them and one of favorites was this policy that made soldiers attach a lanyard, which is a chord to their pistol, to their belt because they claim it prevents us from dropping and losing the pistol. Which is absurd because I would hear it drop and the holster locks it in place anyways.

    So, I put on the lanyard and let the pistol drag behind me and I walked past my coworkers. When they looked at me, I picked the pistol up and acted like I didn't even know I had it in the first place. They got the joke and thought it was pretty funny.

    Personanongrata, I also get called serious, especially by people who aren't in my close circle. I think that is just how people perceive rationals. But my humor is very dry and sarcastic as well.

    My teacher called me a "little ray of sunshine" because I was talking about how a stuffed animal was already dead since it was stuffed, therefor, it couldn't die.

    I approach humor in a lot of different ways...if someone says something stupid or words it weirdly I often have a sarcastic comeback and am frequently labelled bitchy. I use metaphors a lot as well. I think most ENTPs have a tendency to find humor in anything, and often at inappropriate times, but I don't really care what's life without laughter?

    I'm usually pretty effervescent, though I can turn on the serious if need be. I make tons of jokes, from blatant sexual ones to really subtle academic ones that go unnoticed.

    Do any other ENTPs find humor to be streaky though? I'll be really on one day and then... it's gone the next.
