LOL – Men are funnier than woman, claims new study




A scientific analysis by the Journal of Research in Personality has found that men are funnier than women.

The researchers analysed the results of various compiled studies where people were asked to rate men and women’s humour in a double-blind experiment knowing their sex first.

The senses of humour of over 5,000 people analysed in 28 different studies were looked at by researchers from Aberystwyth University and the University of North Carolina.

It was found that 63% of men were funnier than the average woman.

Writing in Psychology Today, lead researcher Dr Gil Greengross said, “to the best of our knowledge, on average, men appear to have higher humour production ability than women”.
