Thorson, James A.; Powell, F. C.
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v49 n6 p799-809 Nov 1993
Administered Multidimensional Sense of Humor Scale and Edwards Personal Preference Schedule to 426 adults, aged 18 through 90. Findings suggest that men create humor more, although women used more coping humor. As age increased, so did humor creativity, coping humor, and humor appreciation. Those who sought to create humor appeared to have need for dominance. (Author/NB)
