A Sense Of Humor Increases Creativity

A Sense Of Humor Increases Creativity | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

...."If this different way of thinking explains the correlation between humor and intellectual creativity, then developing your sense of humor wouldn't necessarily help you to become more creative (although you might be happier). To do that, you would have to change the deeper patterns of thought. But then, what if humor did just that?

 

Remember that humor lights up three parts of the brain, starting with the thinking part that helps you get the joke. Consider a one-liner, like "If at first you don't succeed, skydiving may not be for you." A joke like this starts out with a traditional saying ("If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."), and then surprises you. It disobeys conventional expectations. It goes in an unexpected direction."

 

AN : the thesis here is that humour and creativity interlope....from an original article by Steve Gillman. ( Great and prolific author ).
