    I wish threads about ILIs would stop being so relevant these days.

    My option is both A and B, depending.

    I think B is more commonly perceived, as a joke. A is more personal, and usually perceived through the self, such as laughing at instances in one's head that no one else would understand: which actually ties back to B, because if they told it as a joke, it would not be funny. Not a very bright humor, these caped wolves.

    An example I can think of is one laughing at oneself walking in a snow storm. Or eating an oatmeal cookie that dries the throat.

    I also think this sort of humor is tied to other Gammas.

    The best ILI jokes are not jokes. 75% B. Split the rest between A and C.
    Someone post an ILI comedian if they know of one.

    Scott Adams is either ILI or LIE, though not a standup comedian. He is standing up in this video here:

    Yeah, basically you have the gist of it right there, speaking for myself and a few others. (There should be a feature to post this after all of your posts, then it will account for most.)

    ILI-Te subtypes have good humor, it's even written in the subtype description.

    ILI-Ni have sometimes good humor, though some are really weird and boring so I get what you are saying.

    Yes, I agree and ESE love humor that's why they mistake them for their dual.

    Seriously post some ILI humour, I'm hating on a particular ILI, yes probably Ni, who's jokes always fall flat.

    This "just don't think ILIs are good at telling jokes as they are making a joke of something which can be executed well by sudden, subtle comments.

    But if joke jokes are meant 'telling a joke,' I would say it's not so much an ILI thing. "

    They like family relational humor, with people interacting not cartoons or drawings. Ask an ESE, they will have more words to offer then I

    What I find that is if I try to be funny, it's not funny. If you don't try, it's likely to be found funny, especially when it wasn't really meant to be funny. Though I often find this true about humor in general with the exception of an SEE I know who tries to be funny and succeeds. I am not counting professional comedians who are funny (hopefully) by profession and by training.
    Yes somewhat, very sarcastic just like ESTj, but ESTj stop when they realize they may say something offensive (in this regard they try to look like ESFj, but can't be because their values stop them from sayint really serious sarcastic stuff, plus they a are serious type) about a person's nationality while ESFj's will just say it without thinking. Bill Maher is ESFj I believe- watch his humor.

    So, I ran into my boss's wife an ILI, at the grocery store parking lot; I looked at her car and thought that it looked like a Honda and I said, "Hi, I didn't recognize you. I thought you drove a BMW, this looks like a Honda." She went and told her husban an ESE, "I ran into Maritsa at the grocery parking and she told me that my car looks like a Honda. Well, that was money well spent." That is ILI humor.

    I think Jeremy Hotz is ILI, or at least his comedic persona is. At minimum plr

    After watching that video I am inclined to believe that Scott Adams is actually Fe leading. Not only was he in control of the environment, but he took a possibly offensive joke and made it relatively harmless. But then, Dilbert is the very definition of Merry. That comic finds the humor in everyday life that is not how Te works.

    Btw, this is the greatest comedian of Croatia. INTp from what I can tell. Anyone wants to VI him? He's quite good, objectively speaking, because many laugh at him.
    but... but... he seems totally to me... I don't understand what he's saying but my guess would be SEI or something.

    Also Larry David and Rowan Atkinson come to mind. I think they're INTps too. Especially Atkinson.
    I kinda have a hard time buying Atkinson as ILI as well, but that's just off the top of my head.

    He's telling everyone his fat cells have invaded his brain and if nobody feeds him in the next 15 minutes he's going to be forced to lose some weight. It's not a joke, but everyone laughs. Hope that clears everything up.

    This sounds more like an alpha NT/weak+valued Fe trait in my opinion. The INTps I knew were considerably more subdued in their humor than the alphas I know, more assuming that the content of the joke would take priority over the way the joke was said/made. Conversely, I've known quite a few ENTps, maybe an INTj or two, who seemingly try too hard to be funny, such as the way you described.

    As for the question at hand, I find that INTp humor tends to be sort of mocking in nature, pointing out the inherently stupid/negative aspects of something. I can get this kind of humor when I'm in the right mindset, but when I'm bombarded with it it just becomes overkill to me.

    On a related note, Dylan Moran is the best comedian who ever lived.

    I feel like Dylan Moran's routine in super Ni, because all of his ideas bleed together as one cohesive stream of thought. It's as if in his mind, everything is inherently connected to each other and nothing can be separated. So it's like you watch his routine, he starts on cigarettes and eventually slides into something about Irish people or child-rearing and you have no idea how he got there.
