Humor

Page history last edited by Linda 12 years ago

Definition:

Humor is the capacity to perceive, appreciate, or express what is funny, amusing, incongruous, ludicrous, etc.

 

Humor is the healthy way of feeling a "distance" between one's self and the problem, a way of standing off and looking at one's problem with perspective.
