Sarcasm is my lifelong friend.
I can always count on them.

Apparently Ni is involved with possessing a particular skill in, and having affinity for mocking people and other things. From a number of perspectives.An old friend of mine said to me a year back: "You're constantly making fun of people and they don't even realize it". She told me that I have a tendency to insult peoples intelligence indirectly by making up snide sarcastic remarks while in conversation.
When she told me, I couldn't help but laugh because although it's true I've done it subconsciously for as long as I can remember. She was the first to notice however. Sometimes, in hindsight, I'm astounded at the amount of shit I've been able to pull, basically calling people idiots to their face only changing my words slightly, and adjusting the pitch of my voice to make it seem like a compliment. It's this sort of thing that makes it quite obvious that House from House M.D (The series) might be an INTJ.
Of course my humor has many colors but It usually takes people months to understand this particular sarcasm, and because it's so cynical a lot of people will never truly get it. It's like I'm speaking a totally different language than most people when I flex that muscle. Most of the time noone gets it, so it has become an exercise in self-amusement and seeing how far I can push it.
Is there such a thing as a characteristic INTJ humor, and if so, what does it look like?
People are there. I make fun of them for the sake of amusing myself, it's not specifically with a malicious intent. If they actually understood it and got angry I would keep my mouth shut.I'm not sure about the one you are describing, do you do it because they really annoy you and you want to be mean or just for fun? I remember how my ex would called me stupid when my logic failed and it was funny but he didn't want to be mean, just to laugh.
I like it when you make jokes involving logic. It can be hilarious really. I think that's characteristic for INTPs and INTJs.
Thank you for making me paranoid about everything you post.Or on online forums.
Hey, what can I say? It's a gift... :laughing:Thank you for making me paranoid about everything you post.
Tourette syndrome might be funnier methinks.I don't analyze my wit, it just happens. It's just like narcolepsy, random and funny.
I guess if you're into twitchingTourette syndrome might be funnier methinks.
Actually, I like the spontaneous cursing part of it. Love to stoically observe the freaked-out expressions from the feeler types. :tongue:I guess if you're into twitching
Wait... are you insinuating there are actually other types of humor besides sarcasm? Man, that's right up there with suggesting that the Higgs Boson particle exists! You better back that up with some hard evidence. :tongue:Are you guys good at other types of humor? I find myself to also be amazing with sarcasm and science related jokes, but I can't pull out any jokes that the general populace tends to enjoy.
