Transcript Dr. Didato's Quiz: What's So Funny? DECEMBER 20, 1985 / MONTROSE VOICE 9 By Salvatore V. Didato, Ph.D. News America Syndicate Special to the Montrose Voice If you have it, you're popular. If you don't, you're shunned! We're talking about a sense of humor—that distinctly human quality which gives encouragement to others, keeps us sound in mind and body, and generally makes life easier to bear. To see humor in living is an innate capacity. Infants usually respond to a smile by the age of two months, and outright laughter appears about a month later. Once we learn to chuckle, we do it (or should learn to do it) for the rest of our lives. It's estimated that an average person laughs 15 times a day. But reactions to humor are highly variable and complex. Regarding specific jokes, what to some people is dull, to others is hilarious. Our quiz gauges your sense of humor. To find where you stand on this desirable trait of young and old alike, take it, then read on for explanations. Part 1: Rate yourself on these items as follows: 1—not true, 2—somewhat true, 3—very true. I consider myself to be: 1. Fun-loving 2. Socially aggressive 3. Pleasure-seeking 4. Above average in sex drive Part 2: Now pick what you consider to be the funnier joke in each pair below: 5.A. "Which animals can jump higher than a tree?" "All animals, trees can't Letters Agrees with State Health Board From Loran E. Doss When the State Board of Health puts forth a proposal to isolate AIDS victims, this certainly Beems to be a positive approach to protect public health. It would be an unconvincing argument for gay rights advocates to say that it would hinder efforts to stop the disease. If AIDS victims were kept under close observation, more could be learned about this terrible disease and could possibly lead to future prevention. Items in the "Letters" section represents opinions of some of our readers and not necessarily the views of the MONTROSE VOICE. Readers are encouraged to submit their thoughts on issues of interest to the community. Please keep the letters brief and mail to "Letters to the Editor,"MONTROSE VOICE, 408 Avondale, Houston, TX 77006.

"I don't care what it's been, I'm asking what it is now." 6.A. "If you don't stop playing that horn, I'll go crazy." "Too late, I stopped an hour ago." B.Jane received three wrong phone calls in one afternoon, each asking for Joe Sanders. That evening, the phone rang again and the caller announced: "Hello, this is Joe Sanders. Are there any calls for me?" 7.A. "Tell me how long cows should be milked?" "They should be milked the same as short ones." B. "Do you know what happens to little boys who tell lies?" "Yes, Mom. They travel for half fare." 8.A. "A motorist who ran over a small dog tried to console its owner by saying: "I'll be happy to replace your pet." The reply took only a second: "Sir, don't flatter yourself." B. After an astronomy lecture, an elderly matron asked nervously, "How long did you say it would take for the sun to burn out?" "Oh, about 5 billion years." "Whew," replied the lady. "I thought you said million." □ Explanation There is not one satisfactory theory of humor today. Science is just about where it was centuries ago when philosophers tried to explain it. Sigmund Freud, the psychoanalyst, was the first to form the theory of humor. He finally concluded that humor serves two purposes: 1. It is a mature ability used to repudiate or lessen one's suffering and 2. It is a release of pent-up or repressed drives and emotions. □ Score Part 1—The first four items in our quiz are traits which have been found to be associated with persons who have a high sense of humor. Total up your score for part 1. Part 2—Items 5 through 8 consist of jokes which were rated high or low on funniness by using a panel of psychologist judges fa common scientific method for judging wit and humor). Give yourself two points for all A answers and 1 point for all B answers. Now, add up your points from parts 1 and 2 to obtain your total quiz score. Consider the following as a rough estimate of your sense of humor: 16-20 points. Keen as Johnny Carson. 11-15 points. Average as anyone else. 0-10 points. Move over, Count Dracula.
