What's Your Style of Humour

I read an interesting article today in "˜Psychology Today' Magazine describing the different types of humour people use to enhance their personality. It states that Humour is possibly more valued than good looks or intelligence.

However it can be a double edged sword. It can alienate you from your social circle or it can enhance your social circle.

humourThe different types of humour mentioned were:

Put-Down Humor
This aggressive type of humor is used to criticize and manipulate others through teasing, sarcasm and ridicule.

Bonding Humor
People who use bonding humor are fun to have around; they say amusing things, tell jokes, engage in witty banter and generally lighten the mood.

Hate-Me Humor
In this style of humor, you are the butt of the joke for the amusement of others.

Laughing At Life
When we admire someone who "doesn't take himself too seriously," this is the temperament we're talking about.

So if you like to make jokes have a look at the types of jokes you are making and maybe change your style a bit.
