The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between individuals’ humor styles and their appreciation of various humor styles as presented by others. A mixed model ANOVA revealed no relationship between humor style and humor appreciation. However, an examination of the effect of gender showed that men were more likely than women to endorse and appreciate aggressive and self-defeating humor styles.
