Funny: “The state of being amusing.”
This question is one of the most common questions that have been asked about MBTI. “Which MBTI type would make the best comedian?” and “Which MBTI type is the most fun type?” are similar questions that have also been asked. Although this question somewhat comes down to opinion, there is definitely some types that are more funny than others.
Extroverts are funnier than introverts. This is mainly because they have a lot to say, and they can quickly think of something funny to say. They aren’t afraid to be themselves and say what they want. Extroverts are also more talkative, and if they have more to say, there is a greater chance that what they say is going to be humorous!
Intuitive people are far funnier than sensors. People laugh because they are seeing or hearing something that doesn’t happen every day. This is the definition of intuition. An out of the ordinary approach to life. However, this can sometimes get taken a bit too far, and people may begin to say some very confusing quirky and complicated jokes that are too hard for people to understand (or people couldn’t be bothered understanding them.) Basically, to be funny, people must use their Se/Te to notice things in life that seem stupid or ridiculous, and say something funny and creative using their intuition.
As mentioned above, people need a strong Te to be funny in today’s society. They must observe what is going on in the world and try to make a joke out of it. For instance, TV shows like South Park and Family Guy analyze what is going on in our world with celebrities with Se, and then they will create a joke from that with their Te. Being a feeler doesn’t help with jokes, because most comedians make fun of people in some way or another, so being a thinker is prioritized in the comedy industry.
Perceivers are often seen as funnier people, because they live in the moment, and enjoy life to the fullest. They step out of the comfort zone, and say ridiculous jokes to make people laugh. They aren’t as cautious as judgers, and therefore they think more spontaneously and often think up hilarious jokes. From this information it is clear that ENTP’s are the funniest MBTI type.
