Mr Jerry Palmer ; Jerry Palmer. Publisher: Routledge , Robert Provine, a psychologist from the University of Maryland, found that we actually laugh most when talking to our friends.
Like creativity, humour often works best when it violates what is considered to be the norm.
As one of the millions of people who work in a global organization, this really struck a chord with me. Yet in all the teams I have worked with, we have always managed to create this common language of silly, sometimes absurd, humour that probably makes no sense outside the office. This is what makes humour one of our most important forms of emotional expression.

That is why I see it as a workplace essential. Helpfully, science backs me up again here, because numerous studies have shown that, far from wasting time and destroying productivity, humour also makes good business sense. For a start, it encourages us to collaborate , provides motivation and can help prevent burnout. Yet, in our increasingly crisis-driven world, humour can sometimes feel like a distant former acquaintance.

Humour is worthy of serious ethical consideration. However, it is often taken far too seriously. In this paper, it is argued that while humour is sometimes unethical, it is wrong much less often than many people think.
Non-contextual criticisms, which claim that certain kinds of humour are always wrong, are rejected. Contextual criticisms, which take issue with particular instances of humour rather than types of humour, are more promising. However, it is common to overstate the number of contexts in which humour is wrong. Various mistakes of this kind are highlighted and cautioned against. Social Ethics, Misc in Applied Ethics.
