Transcript of 9 Different types of laughter

Contagious Laughter Provine, the laughter researcher, found in one experiment that nearly half of his 128 undergraduate students giggled on first response to a simulated laugh. And they did this despite knowing the source to be an artificial laugh-simulator. Etiquette Laughter People rely on laughter to get along with others, so whether we're with our boss or friends, we tend to laugh at things that just aren't funny. LAUGHTER Nervous Laughter During times of anxiety, we often laugh in a subconscious attempt to reduce stress and calm down. However, nervous laughter usually just heightens the awkwardness of the situation. Belly Laughter Belly laughter is considered the most honest type of laughter. It may also be the hardest type to experience, because we have to find something truly hilarious before we'll let go with the kind of laughter that has us clutching our bellies and gasping for air.

By keeping your lips sealed, the laughter produces a humming sound, much like the noises a pigeon makes.

Canned Laughter Canned laughter is real laughter -- it just happens to be laughter taken completely out of one context and placed in another Cruel Laughter "It isn't polite to laugh at others' expense."
