Towards a new structural model of the sense of humor: preliminary findings


Ruch, Willibald (2012). Towards a new structural model of the sense of humor: preliminary findings. Palo Alto, California: American Association for Artificial Intelligence.

Abstract

In this article some formal, content-related and procedural considerations towards the sense of humor are articulated and the analysis of both everyday humor behavior and of comic styles leads to the initial proposal of a four factor- model of humor (4FMH). This model is tested in a new dataset and it is also examined whether two forms of comic styles (benevolent humor and moral mockery) do fit in. The model seems to be robust but further studies on the structure of the sense of humor as a personality trait are required.
