    Default Social behavior of INTps - laughing and joking despite Fe Polr

    Can you list examples of INTp social behavior, maybe in the form of joking or humor?

    I think I have some trouble reconciling "NO FE" with INTps I know irl (pretty sure are INTps) and who laugh and joke a lot.

    Er. No Fe? Let's think. (No pun intended)
    Edit: In fact, the above line could be considered an unintentional joke from me, an INTp.

    I joke around all the time, usually because ideas spring into my mind from a certain situation. 'Wouldn't it be funny if...'
    The lackingness in Fe you're talking about is just the inability to understand properly whether what they will say will be offensive to other people, and not caring whether it does offend or not. (That's what I understand it to be) Also the inability to take emotional hints or gestures, and just to take people at face value. I expect other INTps, like myself, don't see hidden agendas in people's actions.

    Very well put. All of it is true.

    IEI-s are also like that. (Just think of butters for example)

    I tend to get suspicious of people's actions, I just have to run it through my thought processes as to why they would be that way, rather than through my feelings.

    Nope. Although I should have put 'when I get suspicious" rather than "I tend to"

    For clarity's sake, I used to live in a pub with my parents and siblings. I used to work in this pub too. There were a fair few characters that would put me on edge, and I have no idea why, although thinking about it, it's probably because they seemed a bit... 'rough'... There were also a few that seems to be perfectly decent people. It took my parents to tell me that they didn't trust them, and then you would find out later that they were entirely dodgy people.
