Sense of humour for the 16 Personality Types...
INFJ - a very unique and interesting sense of humour. Because they are kind and warm people expect them to have a very innocent sense of humour, but that is usually not true. INFJ be often be crude of even morbid with their jokes. They can find humour in situations that other people would never imagine to be funny at all. INFJs may slightly alter their humour delivery in front of others, depending on who they are around.... When they are with someone who they can open up with, they have a way of bringing them into their infectious style of comedy.
ENFJ - This a sense of humour that is often moulded to fit their surroundings, but their natural sense of humour is often very goofy/silly and may have an affinity for sarcasm. They can have a somewhat dark humour and are aware that, that isn’t perceived well by everyone. When they can share their sense of humour, they are often sarcastic and silly, and enjoy making others laugh. But otherwise they avoid upsetting people and will tone themselves down in front of certain company.
INFP - Strong appreciation for sarcasm and absurd humour. They have a skill for self-deprecating comedy that people absolutely love. They are often very funny individuals, to the people who can fully appreciate their off-beast sense of humour. Not everyone can enjoy the zany and sometimes ridiculous INFP humour, but honestly that is their loss. INFPs have a way of getting people laughing and not letting them stop. They enjoy the ability to bring others joy and humour is an excellent way to do that.
ENFP - We have a very enthusiastic and playful sense of humour. Some ENFPs have colourful wit and often have a strong enjoyment for the use of puns. We may occasionally offend people when they are really just trying to make them share in their laughter. We have a way of teasing others and that is actually a way of showing affection towards them.... enjoy their ability to laugh ... at everything, even the darkest... Even though they aren’t always “silly” they do tend to maintain a sense of humour through anything. They have a way of making even the dullest situations hilarious. This keeps the ENFP positive and helps those that surround the ENFP enjoy themselves too.
INTJ - Often have a ... snarky sense of humour, enjoying sarcasm and wit to create a well devised response. Often their deadpan sarcasm can come across as serious, when the INTJ is ... very playful and just trying to be funny. For the people that appreciate the INTJs brand of humour, they understand how fun they are to be around. They have a natural way of seeing the humour in things that other people may actually miss. INTJs often enjoy the use of a good pun and can take pleasure in the skill behind it.
ENTJ - A somewhat outrageous sense of humour. They enjoy pushing the envelope to gauge the different reactions they will receive from others. They aren’t afraid of being seen as ridiculous, so they often push the limits of what others may perceive as funny. They enjoy shock humour, and have a way of surprising their friends that often makes them enjoy being around the ENTJ. They are often very quick with wit and can respond to people before they even realise a joke is coming. They may have a somewhat crude sense of humour that might offend some people who cannot appreciate it.
INTP - A very unique sense of humour, one that is either adored or misunderstood. Some people are not made for the brand of sarcasm and goofy wit that the INTP possess. The people that do appreciate the INTP sense of humour probably find themselves in stitches rather often. They have a way of turning just about anything into a sarcastic punchline and are very good are creating a witty retort. They often enjoy the usage of puns in their humour as well. INTPs have a diverse sense of comedy that really just depends on the mood they are in. They do know their target audience rather well and are skilled at adapting to that if they so choose.
ENTP - A very outgoing and over the top sense of humour. They enjoy the use of shock which can be somewhat crude. Because of this the ENTP occasionally have a sick or morbid timing for their jokes, but the people who know them well understand where they are coming from. They will explore the jokes that other people wouldn’t dare touch because it is “too far”. For people who appreciate this dry and crude type of humour, the ENTP is a fantastic friend to have around. They enjoy making people laugh and enjoy being as witty and inclusive as possible.
ISTJ - Seen as too serious to enjoy humour, but that is definitely not the case. Many people may miss the humour behind the ISTJs comments, because their delivery is very sarcastic and dry. Sometimes their ability to maintain a very deadpan delivery of their jokes, can cause people to miss the joke completely and believe that the ISTJ is being serious. For people who can pick up on their unique brand of wit, they realise just how funny the ISTJ can actually be. Their subtle delivery of humour is an art-form.
ESTJ - An outgoing and adaptive sense of humour. They are often crude and offbeat and not everyone can appreciate their no holds barred style of jokes. People who are more serious or easily offended, definitely will not enjoy the ESTJs sense of humour. If someone is more laid-back and willing to see the jokes for what they are, they will definitely appreciate the way the ESTJ can make just about anything funny. When the ESTJ is uncomfortable they often make jokes to lighten the own mood.
ISFJ - A surprising sense of humour, one that doesn’t always fit their day-to-day personality. They may shock people with a very sarcastic and inappropriate joke, with the absolute best timing. Their humour might be very silly sometimes, like changing the lyrics to a song or intentionally mispronouncing a word. They enjoy puns and sarcasm and may even enjoy dirty humour that people would find surprising to their gentle personality. They are careful not to offend or upset anyone, so they often reserve their unique humour for the people closest to them who can fully understand where they are coming from.
ESFJ - Capable of enjoying many different kinds of humour and often adapt their jokes to fit their surroundings. They are capable of reading what others will find funny and often attempt to blend into that. When they are around the people they are most comfortable with their personal style of humour is more openly expressed. ESFJs appreciate puns a great deal and enjoy witty and often surprising humour. They often aren’t pleased with dark or upsetting humour, and can feel like jokes that bring people down are cruel. They do however, enjoy a good dirty joke and can often laugh at the silliest things. ESFJs enjoy laughter very much, and probably favour being in a relationship with someone that they find hilarious.
ISTP - Enjoy the use of irony and dark humour very much. They keep to themselves and have a very internal sense of humour. People are often very pleased by the ISTPs jokes and enjoy being around them. They enjoy the use of wordplay and often make their humour interesting and thoughtful. They have a dry delivery most of the time and are extremely deadpan, which can offend some people who misinterpret them. And let’s not forget, they enjoy a good sexual innuendo.
ESTP - ESTPs have an often goofy and unique sense of humour. They find the silliest things funny and can appreciate laughing at things that others scoff at. They enjoy having fun and bring that sense of excitement into their humor. They aren’t afraid of being self-deprecating and enjoy making other people laugh in whatever way is possible. They can often flip from silliness to downright dry humour, and it really just depends on the mood that they are in. They don’t like to stick to one simple style of humour and can appreciate just about anything for what it is. This style of joking makes the ESTP very fun to be around.
ISFP - ISFPs can have a very broad sense of humour and often find many different styles funny. They enjoy silliness and can sometimes be absolutely ridiculous and hard to follow. They often only share this unique side of themselves around certain people who can fully appreciate it. They are very good at being self-deprecating and can laugh at the goofy things that they do. They often tease their friends about similarly goofy actions but are good at doing it in a lighthearted way. ISFP enjoy a good inside joke and love being able to share that laughter with someone special. The people who do not know them closely, probably don’t get to see just how funny the ISFP can be.
ESFP - ESFPs have a very fun and lighthearted sense of humour. They dislike laughing at other people’s expense and often find that sort of comedy cruel and unacceptable. They want their jokes to be fun and enjoyable for everyone. The ESFP likes making people laugh and will often become self-deprecating to do so. They don’t mind being the butt of the joke, as long as everyone is enjoying themselves. ESFPs may make silly jokes by replacing certain song lyrics with their own or changing words to fit something that they find funny. They aren’t always the best at noticing sarcasm, and are much more adept to open humour.
None of these resonated with me but maybe I'm missing something obvious to others about myself. Closest pairing would be ISFP and ENFP--definitely not INFP.
My favorite comic strip is Pearls Before Swine, especially Rat.
What type of humor is this?
It isn't my only kind. I'm told I have a lot of humors, although I don't like crude, dirty or racist. And not many puns.
Addition: My husband says that I love ironic humor--as one kind, anyway.
