People who are regarded as funny (meaning they have a high sense of humour) tend have broad-minded attitudes and relaxed temperaments in the company of others (otherwise that person won’t be able to give off a sense of humour).
For more than 2,000 years pundits have assumed that all forms of humor share a common ingredient. The search for this essence occupied first philosophers and then psychologists, who formalised the philosophical ideas and translated them into concepts that could be tested.
Perhaps the oldest theory of humour dates back to Plato and other ancient Greek philosophers, that people find humour in, and laugh at, earlier versions of themselves and the misfortunes of others because of feeling superior.

Humor is a way of coping with difficult or stressful situations. Laughter releases endorphins, which can help reduce stress and make us feel better.
Humor can be a way of connecting with others. Sharing a funny story or joke can help build relationships and create a sense of community. Some people are naturally funny and have a talent for making others laugh.
It can be a way of expressing creativity and originality. Finding a unique and amusing perspective on a situation can be a form of artistic expression.
It can be a way of making a point or conveying a message in a lighthearted and memorable way. Satire and parody, for example, can use humour to critique society and politics.
