An interview with Tafach “young Makbel”

According to research, a sense of humor is made up of six fundamental components: the cognitive capacity to make or comprehend jokes; the appreciation and enjoyment of jokes; the patterns of joking and laughing; the cheery or humorous temperament; the bemused attitude toward life; and the tactic of using humor to get through difficult situations. So, having a sense of humor can refer to both being funny and appreciating comedy. Consuming humor makes people happier and lessens suffering. One group of senior individuals received “humor therapy” in a 2010 study published in the Journal of Aging Research, which involved daily jokes, laughter exercises, amusing anecdotes, and other amusing activities. This treatment was not given to a control group. Negative behavior includes attacking others or demeaning oneself. Positive humor is linked to higher levels of self-worth, optimism, and life satisfaction as well as lower levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. While it may seem nice in the moment, negative humor follows the exact opposite pattern: it accentuates unhappiness. Timing is crucial in humor’s ability to raise happiness. If you’ve ever tried to lighten the awkward situation by asking, “Too soon?” after making fun of a tragedy and no one laughed, you may have failed. Jokes can in fact help people cope with grievances and loss, according to researchers who have studied humor in the face of tragedy. The joke must not, however, occur either too soon or too late in relation to the event. If you crack a joke during a terrible natural disaster, people will avoid you; if you tell a joke about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, most people won’t understand what you’re saying. But if you do it correctly, you can greatly relieve suffering.
