Self-deprecating Jokes Show You Are Happy and Well Socially Adjusted

A new study from the University of Granada, Spain, shows that contrary to the widespread belief, those who make self-deprecating jokes do not have low self-esteem, nor they are predisposed to depression. In fact, scientists suggest that this type of people may be happier and better socially adjusted than others.self-deprecating joke

Having analyzed the material received in the study, the scientists concluded that self-defeating humor was associated with greater anger suppression. On the contrary, those people who use self-enhancing humor also tend to manage their anger better or simply feel less angry.

Study co-author Ginés Navarro-Carrillo says: “The results suggest that humor, even when presented as benign or well-intentioned, can also represent a strategy for masking negative intentions.  [Humor] enables individuals with low scores in honesty to build trust, closeness, etc. with other people, and thereby use important information in order to manipulate them or obtain advantages in the future.”
