Without humor, relationships they build, say psychologists at Stanford University. They believe that humor is one of the most important components of family relations. You can even use this as an indicator of compatibility between the partners.
The study involved 116 volunteers: boys and girls. They were shown photos of people of the opposite sex, having a different appearance. Meanwhile, the scientists told the subjects about the sense of humor of the people in the photos.
It turned out that the presence of a sense of humor – not less important factor than good looks. Usually people make serious relations with smart people with a sense of irony, say the scientists.
We will note, more recently, experts have proved that women appreciate a sense of humor in men is significantly stronger than the appearance. If you look at the situation from the men, it turns out the opposite situation.
