Do you know why women love men with self-deprecating humor?

Women love men with self-deprecating humor

Miss Finder –The Journo, tries to find answers for your general knowledge and awareness on: Do you know why women love men with self-deprecating humor?

Hey guys, you would simply love this, because I’m going to give you yet another clue to win your woman’s heart. Well, being a woman myself, I always like honest men with good sense of humor. And, I’m not alone – confirms the latest study! So, what's the most effective way of winning a woman's heart? Well, it is by running yourself down! Yes, you read it right – women, in general, just love men with self-deprecating humor!

I’m sure you guys would find it hard to digest, but guys, this is now a proven fact. Researchers have carried out the two-year study which revealed that taking the mickey out of one's self, works better than just clever jokes which might be seen as boastful and put women off.

Lead researcher Gil Greengross said, “Many studies show that a sense of humor is sexually attractive, especially to women. But we've found that self-deprecating humor is the most attractive of all. It is a risky form of humor because it can draw attention to one's real faults thereby diminishing the self-deprecator's status in the eyes of others. But based on the idea that verbal humor evolved to function as a fitness indicator, self-deprecating humor can be an especially reliable indicator, not only of general intelligence and verbal creativity, but also moral virtues such as humility.”

In fact, in the study into the role of humor in seduction, the researchers have found that the type of humor used by Hugh Grant in the film Notting Hill, in which he attempts to charm Julia Roberts with the poor contents of his fridge - works the best.

But beware guys, before taking the plunge because the London researchers have also warned that the technique should not be attempted by those who are already unpopular as it could make “low-status individuals” appear “more pathetic” than they did before.

The study is to be published in the upcoming edition of the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology.

So, it’s not the smartest of the men with the most intelligent sense of humor that attract this present age women, instead, men with self-deprecating humor, make their way into their hearts. Are you listening, guys?
