Hi,

Turn of mind suggests the way you think, your attitude to life. If you have a comical turn of mind, it indicates that you see the funny side in the way people behave, which other people perhaps don't see. You might also note a related expression: turn of phrase, which is the way you say something, the way you express an idea.
