Are Funny Groups Good at Solving Problems? A Methodological Evaluation and Some Preliminary Results.
Pollio, Howard R.; Bainum, Charlene Kubo
Small Group Behavior, v14 n4 p379-404 Nov 1983
Observed college students (N=195) divided according to sex and measures of wittiness to determine the effects of humor on problem solving in groups. Results showed that group composition was not a crucial issue in problem-solving performance, but that humerous group interaction was, and did not interfere with ongoing task performance. (LLL)
