Humour is in a way a defence mechanism for many who have had traumatic past issues in their lives , Myself for example : If not for the celebs and friends I have come to know who have had the same types of issues in their own past lives and helped to support me in my goals to help others , I most likely would have gone bonkers along time ago , The people I speak of all have dyslexia and are in the entertainment industry of comedy in one form or another .
Note the man in my avatar standing next to me , During his entire child hood his father called him dummen hund " Which is german jewish for Dumb Dog , Now-a-days he writes childrens books but most remember him as the Fonz from happy Days .
I'm still at it 9000 strong worldwide , should you need support with anythig at EP just drop me a PM .
Maybe you're really dumb. ;)
I lose about 5 IQ points a year, thanks to motherhood. I should be into the negatives any time now :o)
yeah 'they' (the dreaded they) say that hiding behind humor is not humorous....<br />
whatever. <br />
they can ef themselves. <br />
no funny boned people.
thank you sah! or ma'am
Yes this is one of the most best healthiest defense mechanisms I dont think its bad though,I agree with this one:0 what was your question though lol??I didnt get it lol
Not sure I get the question, but well defense mechanisms are simply ways you use to deal with a situation. So when you use humour to deal with a situation, well, then humour is your defence mechanism at that time. <br />
Harry Potter series had a few examples, which were extremes. Or even saying, for example, well if I lost my leg in an accident, and I said that I shouldn't be suing the driver (who caused the accident) since I don't have a leg to stand on...<br />
Okay that's a bad joke, but you get the idea, I hope :D
