    Default Self-deprecating humor

    I know I'm guilty of it at times. Type related? Thoughts?

    I remember reading this in some IEE description or another, and I know I do it, but so does my SLI husband, and so do a lot of people I know of all sorts of types. If I see it in a description, I think "Forer effect." Maybe there are a few types that would be less likely to do it? That might be more limiting as far as typing goes that looking at who does it.

    probably a sign of general humanity than anything.

    reasoning types do it and it is because they are wierd (IMO this behavior is another play at being infantile in order to induce care-taking, as no respectable decision involves self-deprecation)

    I definitely don't do it as much as my IEI brother. I just don't think it's type-related.

    I don't know if it's type related, but I think too much of it will be a Woody Allen kind of thing, and too little would be a Arnold Schwarzenegger kind of thing.

    I feel this; we're all imperfect and human.

    I do that sometimes, but it's never to get a reaction out of someone, just to have a good laugh. I sometimes get mad and uncomfortable when friends/people I care about joke like that about themselves though, I tell them that "if anyone is going to make fun of you, it's going to be me."

    i don't think women pull off self-deprecating humor as well as men. I don't know why. Funny girls are champs.
