Chapter 4 - The Personality Psychology of Humor
Review articleOpen access

AbstractIn this chapter, we first explore the meaning of sense of humor, noting that this concept seems to comprise several different dimensions. We then address the common ways in which personality psychologists conceptualize and measure sense of humor as it relates to humor appreciation and the use of humor in daily life. We also discuss how sense of humor is related to other personality traits. Finally, in this chapter we consider recent research on concepts related to individual differences in people’s disposition toward ridicule.
