Are you good at detecting humor through texting or computer conversation?

Or does someone have to say "jk" , "lol" or "sarcasm"?

  • No one is; this is why non-verbal communication is critical and why something like CALLING is actually vastly superior.

  • I am okay at picking up humor by reading someones words via email or text. You can read words in a way much different than the send intended. I prefer voice conversation as to avoid miscommunications.

  • I'm excellent at it. But most people... aren't. So I usually include jk, a smiley, etc to make it clearer... not that they get it then either...

  • I usually catch a lot of nuance. I think people are getting better and better at communicating via text since we use it so much and for so many things.

  • Only if I know the person well, otherwise I'm pretty bad at guessing. It's why I avoid joking much over the internet; I operate on the assumption that what I say will be taken seriously. :P

  • I'm pretty good at it. I don't take a lot of things seriously, so I usually assume something is said in a joking manner before I assume it's said in a serious manner.

  • I'm decent at it. Also important to consider if you've hear the person's voice or how they speak as well.

  • Generally, yes. It's not as funny if you specify that it's a joke.
