    Default Sense of humor

    Type-related?

    Some things I find funny, that may be odd to others:

    --The green light next to someone's username
    --Having no profile pic



    The combination of the above comes off creepy but oddly funny to me. I dunno why

    Other examples:
    slapstick comedy (physical exaggeration), dark, witty/puns, surreal/absurd, dry/deadpan, goofy, observational, poop jokes, etc etc

    I think it might:

    Alpha



    Beta



    Gamma



    Delta

    What is good?—Whatever augments the feeling of power, the will to power, power itself, in man. What is evil?—Whatever springs from weakness. What is happiness?—The feeling that power increases—that resistance is overcome.

    I am not a big fan of dry Humor unless it’s deadpan. I hate toilet joke Humor and overly sexual Humor. Im really not a big fan of slapstick Humor either.

    I LOVE dark Humor. That’s my bread and butter. Though it has to be done in good taste and you can’t see it coming. I like witty Humor and surreal Humor. My favourite is deadpan when you don’t see it coming and the move in like nothing happened. Like dropping a joke bomb then walking away, oof that’s my stick. I love ironic jokes too

    It seems I am really good at observational Humor cause a lot of people find my observations humorous when they don’t mean to be lol.

    Meh, I like Rick and Morty, but Sex and the City wouldn't interest me in the slightest. I like offensive shit and laughing at bad things happening to other people.

    Stereotyping is one thing I always find funny.

    South Park and the Boondocks is Beta humor.

    One time, I was working with a black crewhead at my work college. Off work, I called him “Master” as a joke, and it is offensive to him. Then, I watched a boondocks clips where one guy said “Master deez nuts in your mouth.”



    I said the same joke to that black crewhead in front of everyone but the reaction is priceless.

    Hmm the type of humor that I don't like: anything that involves belching, farting, poop jokes. Dry humor is a hit or miss for me because most times I'm not able to tell if the person is joking or not. Self depreciating humor makes me uncomfortable, I start wondering if the person is okay.

    I can find dad jokes funny. It's just the cheesiness of it that makes it funny, like it's so unfunny that it's funny lol
    Dark humor is always hilarious.

    And @MissDuckie just made me aware that something is called observational humor. I didn't know there were so many different types of humor

    Some tv shows and movies I find hilarious: The Boondocks, Santa Clarita Diet, The Good Place, Neighbors, White Chicks, Grown Ups. She's The Man is one of the most hilarious movies to ever exist.

    Absurd and stupid stuff makes me laugh.

    "Witty" humor is fucking annoying.

    I really liked the Fast Show, that was my type of humor. I don't like the laugh track but the characters are great.

    Paraprosdokians: the course the joke takes mocks your expectations. If intuitive, perhaps it relates to Ne?

    The style is familiar to me from my upbringing - sarcasm wasn't used in my home, for whatever reason. I remember my uncle describing two objects together that shouldn't be, and the absurdity provoked a smile when I was otherwise cautious to show my emotions.

    On the forum @PseudoRandomBSGenerator's word combinations are often very funny to me in a ??? way. There is a significant delay followed by my amusement

    Someone at work talked about a graphics card being on its "last legs" and the imagery of that was similarly funny to me, because the scenario itself was serious and I needed an outlet (to calm down). Anthropomorphising objects for humour may relate to Fe, especially when the objects are causing trouble.

    Those two methods of humour would be my weakness, if you really want to get a laugh out of me.

    I like all types of humor, but I enjoy offbeat, unusual, and unexpected humor, many times with poor taste.









    are a few examples

    I enjoy dark humor a lot. I joke about scenes in Fargo sometimes, one involving a wood chipper lol

    my husband rented a wood chipper for a job and it made me think of Fargo, so I asked him if I should be worried and then sent him a GIF of that scene and died laughing for like 5 min over it


    oh, and Irony Love irony

    Based on this result it might be that metaphor and synonym production (both) show activation in brain areas that have connection to schizotypal distortions.
    There is more information available about measured brain changes in schizophrenia, specifically...

    If synonym is drawn from a knowledge bank of literal associations, I wonder if changes in memory coding/retrieval could lead to a growing quantity of literal meanings being dismissed in favour of figurative language. BTW, when we say that someone we dislike is a dragon, what makes them not a lizard? One is hot and the other cold, both lay eggs.

    Going back to the article and thread topic, I noticed that metaphors were scored based on their cleverness, originality and remoteness = exactly those things that make them funny.

    Thanks for raising this subject, though I might have overworked my own brain and need a rest now.

    old-school mad tv probably my most favorite type of humor. And yeah, I didn't like Sex in the City either lol. That show being Beta doesn't make much sense to me- it seemed waaaay more Gamma than anything. They always did these serious non-merry like monologues during the show where Carrie would describe her Gamma SF narcissism in every message lol. It could even be Delta tbh. Also it wasn't a comedy so weird example lol. It wasn't even funny... it was a more of a regular drama pretty much? Do you think it's Beta because faggy IEI = Carrie's personal hairstylist? lol Faggy IEIs nature is pretty naturally ubiquitous - it doesn't make the show Beta however.

    I know a female LIE who really liked Sex & the City.

    Oh I also like physical humor a lot. Like Glory getting hit by the truck on Buffy. Although it should have been moving faster and it wasn't edited very well. Or that scene in Xena where the chakram hit like 2490723492 things in one episode.

    I really love absurd humour, anything that points out how the things we do make little sense, or just completely rando stuff. If there are puns, it gets a bonus point.

    I don't really try often to make explicit jokes, usually I just talk and the natural flow of conversation makes me sound like a stand-up comedian. Just explaining a story in a long-winded form while acting it out with my voice in body in a way that's funny. Also general "witty" humor, sometimes I'll just find random connections in my head and say things that are supposed to be jokes that are so wildly incomprehensible that I just chuckle a bit to myself about it while no one else notices.

    Also memes, but the only reason those are funny is so that people can talk about literally anything and not take it seriously and just turn it into a joke.
