  • I use it for multiple purposes--defense, offense, coping, deflection, distraction, and misdirection... to name a few.

  • Yeah I laugh when my SO tries to have a serious talk. Not because it's funny but I feel so awkward that I laugh inappropriately. It pisses him off. I'm in therapy for intimacy issues now though.

  • Not really, i`m just awkward as fuck and i don`t really talk to the person trying to insult me that much. But the thing about me is that i have lots of great ideas sometimes so i just wait for that person to say something that i can then make a scentence with aka roast the fuck out of them with their own words. I use humor for talking to friends, mostly in real life but i go out rarely so... anyway, back to the point, my answer is no

  • Yes and no. There is a part of my sense of humor which comes from the sadness in my life but If I can get you to laugh, you will cheer me up and no longer am I sad.

  • Nah, I know my flaws, and i just say stuff like "that's fair" or "yeah pretty much", I'm only a Joke guy when they insult someone else, then I'll whip out my sarcasm belt.

  • No. And yes, but most people don't get it. I use sarcasm and irony. I mock stupidity. People think I'm rude asshole. They just don't get the point.

  • No, because I'm not funny. I use my 'IDGAF about your entire existence' face as a defensive mechanism.
