An article that we read recently from Psychology Today takes an indepth look at how humour can effect how well a date goes and how humour can also signal how compatible a couple will be.
The article focuses on the best types of humour to use and how different types of humour elicit different responses.
· Affiliative humor reflects the ability to enjoy humor with others, tell jokes, share anecdotes and so on.
· Self-enhancing humor involves using humor as a coping mechanism—finding the funny in everything, and keeping a humorous outlook on life.
· Aggressive humor involves disparaging others with humor by teasing, ridiculing and laughing at others’ expense.
· Self-defeating humor is when you make fun of yourself and generally use self-deprecating humor.
