  • How can humor help here?

No end in itself

Overview

The answer: With humor you can achieve a lot, but it must not become an end in itself! Already Arthur Schnitzler knew:

"He who has humor, he has almost genius. If you have only a joke, you usually do not even have the ", [/ quote-end]

Joke vs. humor

Overview

Right! But this quote raises many questions, such as these:

  • Are not humor and humor identical?
  • Is not the joke too humorous by nature?
  • And if you have a sense of humor, you can also joke for the best. Or?

1. Humor starts with the ICH

Overview

Let's start with ourselves. ICH! Because even the humor always starts with us. Regarding humor and "telling jokes" I stand alone there alone.

I am completely thrown back on myself. If I want to score with humor, I have to think for myself, with which ingredients I can succeed.

2. Humor is in us

Overview

Do I want to humorously spice up my conversation, my communication, my performance? That's the first and crucial question we need to ask ourselves before using any stylistic means and communicative antics.

Or do I just want it because it just feels good? Because just the "world day of booming laughter", the "International joke day" or the "Day of humor" is? Because it is the Chef has ordered that we finally make our customers laugh?

3. Humor should not be embarrassing

Overview

If only one of these arguments applies, we should save our work. Because in work, this is guaranteed to work out in such a case. All the ease that humor undoubtedly has to convey and offer is lost.

If we only use humor because we think it is required of us, it is truly no pleasure. Cramped built-in supposed jokes just seem embarrassing. We should not do that to our counterpart.

4. Humor as a strategy?

Overview

On a business trip, I enjoyed a very special humor experience. Arriving at the hotel, I get in touch with the reception, I receive a polite welcome, the lady pushes the key in my hand, explains the breakfast times and wishes me a pleasant stay.

There's also the guest card, the WiFi code and the opening hours of the wellness area. With the same formal expression, she finally hands me a little piece of paper with the inscription: Joke of the Day "Message to the guy who stole my down jacket for me: You can dress warmly!"

5. Humor can not be prescribed

Overview

When asked if this was a new strategy, the receptionist answered with her studied smile: "Yes, we have humor weeks. There is a salmon seminar and we entertain the guests with funny jokes wherever they are. "Whether the hotel guests find the joke mentioned above funny or not, is an open question. It's not that easy with humor.

On the contrary, it is a serious, important and difficult matter. For me as a visitor of the hotel is clear: Basically a great action. The guests entertained and provide for a good team spirit - that's exemplary. But maybe one or the other time you will scratch your hair straight at the embarrassment band. Orderly "being funny" does not succeed every employee.

6. Only personal humor is real humor

Overview

It is the authenticity, the genuineness of which humor lives. But first I have to know what "real" is, which suits me. But how do I know which "humor type" I am? By asking myself what I usually find funny. "Normally" because there are situations in the morning at 04.00 o'clock where we simply find all or nothing funny.

Let's scan our everyday life:

Tip: Text as PDF (please read the instructions!) or to this text complete eCourse Download. Regular promotions or news per Newsletter!

  • Which TV programs make us laugh?
  • Which comedians bring tears of laughter into our eyes?
  • Which YouTube video can we smile about again and again?

So we find out relatively easy and above all very entertaining, in which kind of humor we stand. Because we have that sense of humor in us. We can radiate this personal sense of humor and pass it on naturally. Humorous just.

7. Humor is not just humor

Overview

We should also distinguish between Pointe, Bonmot or even black humor: Do we find Schillerstrasse good? Then the surprising element of a punchline is right for us. Do we think that the subtlety of a Loriot is unsurpassable, then fits the Bonmot to us. If we think that Michael Mittermayer makes us forget all the worries, then we too tend to overstate everyday life and present it at a high speed.

Or do we even belong to the Circle of Friends of Black Humor and would prefer to feel part of the Adams family: "He has my father's eyes." - "Gomez, take them out of his mouth." The kind of humor that When we arrive at our best, we can best communicate.

8. Humor is always individual

Overview

Not every joke is funny at the receiver. But humor should never be shameful. Perhaps it is enough for the guest, customer or audience, if we are just ourselves and our warmth is felt.

The art is to react humorously when the situation makes it. And to end with a quote, two hundred years ago, theater critic Juda Löb Baruch knew: "Humor is not a gift of the spirit, but a gift of the heart."
