Psychologist Steve Wilson Gives A Dozen Tips to Help You Be More Humorous Even if You Can't Tell a Joke
Date:5/20/2013

Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) May 20, 2013

Can you tell a joke well?

Do people roll their eyes when you start to tell a joke?

Would you like to be funnier as a speaker, teacher, presenter of any kind?

Do you sometimes feel like your funny bone is missing?

Can't think of a snappy comeback when someone hits you with a zinger...until 2 hours later?    

If this sounds like you, don't worry. Help is here. I believe that everyone can locate and develop their sense of humor; and even learn to tell a joke well. I am not kidding. Most of us want to get all the laughs we can. There is mounting evidence of the power of humor and laughter to heal and help us enjoy life, but most people cannot tell a joke.    

Mistaken notions about humor and laughter.
1. The belief that you are either born with a sense of humor or not. The truth is that the ability to laugh is inborn. People who are born blind and deaf laugh because it is inborn, not because they learned how. But, your sense of humor is something you can develop over your lifetime.

2. There’s a lot more to humor joke telling. A good sense of humor is personal. It is the willingness to see the funny side of life; the ability to see the non-serious element in a situation. Even if you are terrible at telling jokes, you can have a great sense of humor.

3. You do not always need to be able to explain the reason why you are laughing. Although there are many benefits of laughing, exactly WHY you are laughing may not be easy to explain. This is especially true when an authority figure, e.g., boss, teacher, parent, or judge, asks, “What’s so funny?” If you stop to analyze and explain why you are laughing, the funny dies.
