“After making love, the two are engrossed in their thoughts. Suddenly he asked: “Honey, have you ever wanted to know how it feels to be a man?” Her: “Not me, baby, do you?”
Who would not laugh at a joke like that? A man … maybe if it were uttered by a woman. A recent research has confirmed what many women have suspected to be funny or comic ever: men are intimidated by their humorous vein.
Men may find compelling stories or jokes and funny judge who makes them, but if they choose a mate for a story seriously do not like that he has the easy joke.Rod Martin, one of the authors of the study, a psychologist at the “Western Ontario, explains that men feel that being pranksters is a typically male trait and therefore find it” tune “the fairer sex. In reaching these conclusions, Martin and his collaborators have involved hundreds of men and women asking them whether the fact that a woman possessed a sense of humor make her more or less attractive, many men have said yes. But when asked if they had been found wanting a partner who was sarcastic and ready wit, the response was decidedly negative. Martin said that the result suggests that men are afraid of becoming the target of the mockery of her and therefore tend to avoid the kind of woman. Different matter if it’s an adventure, then, like a woman who is more capable of humor, perhaps because it is more uninhibited and helpful. On the contrary, “the humor enhances the charm of a man”, at least this is what the psychologist Michael Cunningham says, “but if the jokes or gags are of a sexual nature, in which case it is even counterproductive.” Cunningham noted the same as the irony is particularly appreciated by the weaker sex, the fact that this is a harmless way of laughing and shows that those who do not afraid to look ridiculous and it is sure of himself. The ability to appreciate humor is undoubtedly an important role in the attraction, but in a completely different between the sexes, there is always the discovery by Rod Martin: women who like to laugh, but men find attractive a woman who laugh at their jokes.
Another survey of psychologists Erik Bresslerand Balshine and Sigal proved that having to choose a partner for a lasting relationship only women face the judge found that they enjoy. The study also found that for both genders, people with a sense of humor are perceived as less intelligent and less sincere than most series. In a similar study, American psychologists Duane Lundy, Josephine Tan and Michael Cunnicngam have shown that individuals who preferred to be funny is more rested, but before that must be fun to look good. Even here, in line with the results of the previous survey has revealed that the actors give the idea of people being more cheerful than the others, but less interested in intellectual matters or paid for.
Tornado idea that humor is a typically male, this belief seems to have been confirmed in a curious experiment in British researcher Sam Shuster. The latter recorded the reaction of pedestrians to the fact that he percorresse the streets of the English city of Newcastle on a rickety unicycle. Much of the people he met made him the notes or looking at him amazed, and about half had also apostrophised … but differently according to gender, men were more sarcastic and evil and their jokes were more acidic, and this was especially for young adults. Women on the other hand, when commenting on the stunt Shuster, congratulated him and expressed concern about the safety of what he was doing. These two different ways of reacting to the student have concluded that humor is a trait that most men and is satisfied that it is more corrosive in the young, it is easy to be linked to the increased presence of male hormones. For its part, on the other, the American psychologist Geoffrey Miller has noticed that men tend to be more playful women, especially in courtship and in particular, in the presence of potential rivals. In conclusion, joking cheers, put in a good mood and makes the most of pleasure, but be warned, if a woman wants to involve a man is good that you do not let go too to tell stories and jokes, and indeed it is good to laugh at jokes about him . On the other hand, he earns points if she is fun, but if his repertoire contains only jokes of a sexual nature is better than reserving it for an audience of his peers.
