Mostly A: Affiliative Humour – You use humour to build bonds and improve relationships. Teasing is in good fun, and your easy charm translates to instant friendships. This is usually seen as a sign of strong self-esteem. Look for: spontaneous women who love to laugh. They tend to be extraverted and open to new experiences. Mostly B: Self-Enhancing Humour – For you, comedy is a coping mechanism. You enjoy life’s absurdities and probably have a healthy sense of optimism and few emotional problems. Look for: women who delight in cheerful jokes about the stuff everyone else grumbles about, not to mention women who like absurdist comedy and cartoons. Mostly C: Aggressive Humour – You’re not laughing with people but at them, relying on sarcasm and put-downs. But that’s because you believe they deserve to be ridiculed. Look for: gals who can dish it out too. Unfortunately, finding your dream woman may take a bit longer, since it’s guys who are more likely to demonstrate aggressive humour. Mostly D: Self-Defeating Humour – You’re the butt of the joke and you know it. You make fun of yourself and let others crack one-liners at your expense, since it’s the way you fit in. Look for: self-deprecating types. Together, you may be prone to anxiety and depression, but no one will notice because you’re both skilled at masking your pain with comedy.
