Well a sense of humor means exactly what it says - it's having a sense when to use humor and when humor

is being used. People who are said to have a poor sense of humor are people who don't get most jokes, or maybe get obvious jokes, but miss out on the more subtle ones. Personally, I think sarcasm is God's gift to us humans, haha. Really, I use sarcasm all the time and most people I talk to have a good enough sense of humor to catch on. When I find someone who doesn't get my sarcasm, I also find it difficult to be funny with them, because that's just my personality and sense of humor. You just have to remember, not all people "GET IT," you know? You gotta find your niche - find people who get you and laugh with you. Hey, jokes should be slightly offensive. If someone can't take it, then that's their problem, not yours!

What does sense of humor exactly means?
I meet people all the time, when I am serious with some discussion, they say I should take it light, when am trying to show some humor, they say, I am sarcastic... What the hell should I do to be funny and not offensive at the same time????

How do you describe your sense of humor?
I always find it funny how someone will fall over laughing at a joke, while the other person just stands there staring into space. Do you suppose people get their sense of humor from their parents? Culture?

1. The ability to create new humor. It is believed that humor creation requires the humorist to put himself in another person's shoes, to hear the joke the way it sounds to a listener who doesn't yet know the punch line. 2. The ability to provoke laughter in others. 3. The ability to sense or identify humor, whether that humor is created by oneself or by others. 4. Street Definition: In personal ads, esp. in the personal ads and dating profiles of those who describe themselves as "sarcastic" (i.e. verbally abusive), "sense of humor" means "the ability to be the target of my verbal abuse without getting upset like I said something wrong." In personal ads, "has a sense of humor" is often a code word for "Doesn't get upset when I abuse him or her (as if the fact that I abuse others is somehow a judgment on them and not on me)." Ironically, this definition of "sense of humor" is used by persons who can't put themselves in the shoes of others, due to a lack of basic empathy.
