I'm curious about the other INTPs since, even though I'm reserved in public, when with close friends I continually crack stupid jokes and will say something so absurd, it will make the other party question my sanity. My usual tactics is to make deductive arguments knowing my premises are false.

Example:

Me: "..........// Why do you need to watch porn only for pose ideas if you have Indian boyfriend? Isn't 'Introduction to Kama Sutra' mandatory in primary schools in India? "
Close friend: "Ha ha, lolz. I don't think it is. Though, you know in India, it is awkward to buy condoms, it's like buying drugs."
Me: "Oh,...really? Tell me more. How do.......//So, if I understood correctly, the one who has mastered the art of 'Kama Sutra' could bend you in ways where he could make five extra holes (only two of them being usable). I so envy them."

I went to the store in preparation for a party with an ISTP and an INFJ once.

INFJ: (jokingly) You ought to buy condoms, ISTP.
ISTP: (ignoring the comment, talking to himself) Need more toilet paper...

*few seconds pause*
I start chuckling.

INFJ: What is it?
Me: Nothing. My imagination just randomly connected the words "condom" and "toilet paper" and...-
INFJ starts laughing loudly.
ISTP: What's so funny about that?
INFJ and I then proceed to hysterical laughter while ISTP shakes his head, like we read each other's thoughts.

It might also be a N thing, but the random "inside humor" silliness between me and INFJ is pure gold. Can't do the same with anyone else.

Haha, of course. Can totally relate.

I do wish we had more people to share this kind of humour with.
I have only one friend who really_gets my humour and he's an INTP.

Not anywhere close to as much as how much people who don't know me give me credit for...
I don't know. You be the judge....

I really only get respect and support from other INFPs and INTPs.

SJs and SP's really don't give two FUCKS about me, more often than not. Most of them disrespect me. Cuz they're jealous, stupid FUCKS.

I'll be pretty silly around people of no consequence. Employers have no idea how I actually am, and my family sees a bit of a cover up too. Depends on what humor flies.

When I'm working on a big project with a few people I know well it can get pretty funny with the one liners, puns, and completely wrong words for what we are describing. "Laser guts" "schmoo shnoot" "tuggy lifty" "lifty slidy" "squirt gun" "spit tank" etc.

I am about as silly as a cat, who lost most of its fur after someone burned it off. Then was sprayed on by a skunk, named Pewdew, after having his heart broken by his one true love. Later was thrown into the trash bin, and was then adopted and abused by some red necks. Then he was later on pronounced dead, after the family suffocated him to death. His dead body was later to be found in the trash bin, where he was to die alone, with nobody around who cared about him.

I've trained away most of my dorkiness. I sometimes slip up, but I am mostly rid of it.

My wife gets to see any and all of my silliness. Few others get to see me try thought up dance moves on the spot, or do various imitations.

Aside from that there are those few people you meet who pull some of it out of you, a comment that you and few others find funny causes you to laugh then that one other person, and quirky comments go back and forth among the two of you and everyone else looks like the two of you have lost your minds, leading me to laugh more of course.

Could you tell me what was the reason behind that decision?
To cease being a dork.

There's a reason dorks get punched in school. Nobody likes em'.

They're annoying. They grate on your mind like a mosquito stuck in your ear. I'm sure there's a psycho-biological reason for why that is. Like an innate wish to purge humanity of weakness.

In other words, they force people to think differently, often without even trying. Maybe the less dorky should learn to be more receptive to the insight of dorks.

Stupidity is a weakness. Conformity and collectivism are representative of weakness. Clinging to a defective status quo is a weakness. From a certain point of view, we could say that the so-called "dorks" are more truly "strong" than the conformists who beat them up.

Are you serious?

Why are they annoying? Do you want to punch yourself in the face or were you punched in the face as a school kid?

"Nobody likes em'." (?) There are many people who appreciate weird humour. It has that niche appeal, in my view. And yes, I like to engage with dorky, yet smart, person.

If you don't like the style, it's not my problem. Deal with it. I'm not asking you to play along or laugh. I'm just trying to find like-minded people among those who are "serious".

Hey you asked, I just answered.

Yes, if I could go back in time, I would beat me senseless, holy shit!

And no, I didn't get punched, because I was bigger than them. It's not that they didn't want to.

No, I know. It's not that. You made arguments which had no support, so I didn't know why are you the way you said you were.

p.s. Come back to our side, dork. I'll punch you?
