Comparison of aggression and incongruity as factors in children's judgments of humor
Sinnott, Jan Dynda; Ross, Bruce M.
Journal of Genetic Psychology, 128, 2, 241-249, Jun 76
A total of 230 children, ages 3 to 8, made six paired comparison judgments as to which of two brief incidents was funnier. At all ages children significantly preferred aggressive and incongruous incidents to neutral incidents. When aggressive and incongruous nonverbal incidents were paired, there was no significant preference. (Author/SB)
