You Think That’s Funny?

April 4th, 2017

Every person (hopefully) of every Color has a sense of humor. For some, it’s kind of hidden, but for our four Colors, it’s definitely a different style of humor.

Blues are very good at adapting their humor to fit their surroundings, mood and the people they’re with. They will read what other find funny, and attempt to blend in (they’re just not the best at picking up on sarcasm at times). This is especially true for Blue/Orange. When they’re around people they’re comfortable with and trust their personal humor is more openly expressed. Blues don’t mind being the butt of a joke, as long as everyone is enjoying themselves. What doesn’t please Blues is any humor that’s dark, upsetting, or at the expense of others. Jokes that bring down other people are cruel and just wrong. Yet, they typically won’t say anything. They generally laugh along while thinking the joke isn’t funny at all and way over the line.

Oranges have a permanent sense of humor – at all times – about everything. It’s usually very playful and colorful. Yes, they can occasionally offend people with their humor, but most of the time they can get away with stuff other Colors would never dare. They have a way of teasing others that’s actually a show of affection. They can laugh at anything, and anyone, even in the darkest situations. Oranges have a way of making even the most stressful or dullest situations, meetings, or projects hilarious, fun, and funny. When they’re uncomfortable, or things are about to get emotional or deep and meaningful, Oranges can often crack a joke to lighten the mood or to change the subject.

Greens have a sense of humor that others often don’t share – it’s an acquired taste, and can take a little work to understand. They enjoy using sarcasm and wit. No, they won’t be the standup comedians that will talk until they think of something to say. But they have a way of seeing the humor (or absurdity) of something in ways that other Colors often miss. Their Green face, and deadpan sarcasm can be interpreted as being serious, when they’re actually being very playful and funny. When you get their sense of humor, they’re actually really fun to be around! Their humor can be some very clever word plays, or something funny on the absurdity of a situation or event. You may need to do some thinking before you catch up to their joke or pun.

Golds are often judged as being too serious to enjoy humor, but that’s absolutely not the case. Their often dry delivery can make others miss the humor. Any deadpan delivery of a joke can cause others to miss their joke completely, thinking they’re being serious. Golds, at times, aren’t afraid of being self-deprecating and can flip from downright silly to dry humor – it depends on their mood and the people they’re with. It’s true that Golds aren’t the best at remembering a specific joke, but they do have a folder of them, or an email file with some good one in them from years ago. Their humor is mostly an on-the-spot observation, or a take-off from someone else’s comment. If you need a joke right now – give them a few minutes to look one up…
