An excerpt from the book:
Everybody wants to be a comedian nowadays. Men want to be “that guy”, the one who slays male competitors with witty repartee and absconds with admiring girls. Even some women aspire to be the funny girl who keeps her man in stitches. It is no doubt that riotously humorous people are the life of the party, and their witty wordplay is sorely coveted by less funny folks. However, popular perception aside, just how important is it for one to be witty? Psychologists, sociologists and others have turned their spotlights on this human ability with the intent of answering just this question. Their answer is not surprising. The ability to be humorous correlates to increased personal well-being, social interaction and health. Nature favors funny people, and funny people benefit immensely from this one, personal trait.
Witty people gain social chops just by virtue of being funny. Few people fail to enjoy time spent laughing with good company. However, natural wit bestows upon one more than the mere ability to evoke laughter. Persons who possess wit and a healthy dose of intuition are able to gauge the moods of their audience by measuring the reception of their various jokes, barbs and tall tales.1 Armed with this perception, the witty guy or gal can purposefully alienate or endear others by directing the tone of their humor.1 Masterfully funny people can employ wit in ways that cause others to flit to them and like them. Specifically, one’s wit is used as a tool to expose and identify others in the environment that shares similar dispositions and propensities. In romantic scenarios, fine-tuned wit can equate to “getting” the girl or guy. In fact, various studies show that male wit or humor often sparks romantic interest in the female kind. Conversely female wit is that which sustains burgeoning relationships for the long haul.2 Humor is so important in intimate relationships that its presence is linked to marital satisfaction in all cultures.
