Our happy hour fact to amaze your drinking buddies with. Women prefer men who have a good sense of humor because they associate it with intelligence and honesty.
Researchers in England had a group of women read 20 self-descriptions written by men, half of which were extremely funny, and the other half only mildly funny
. The women rated the men who had written the extremely funny descriptions smarter, more honest and a better bet for a mate.
"The findings provide evidence that women use humor as an indication of a guy's intelligence," explained Kristofer McCarty, who led the study. "Intelligence is a very attractive quality as a clever man should be more able to provide resources for his offspring."
If you are a "funny guy" who doubts the veracity of these findings, you should probably consider the fact that you are not as funny as you think.Click here to have Happy Hour Hero delivered to your desktop every pour time.
