In everyday life you will always meet very open people, very talkative, with excellent humor; The “problem” comes when you run into a totally honest person.
You know, of those who “do not have hairs on the tongue” and are very direct when it comes to comment on any topic or about other people, or even about ourselves.
Now, a sociological study reveals that it is these people, the honest and direct, who over time lose friends, will practically be left alone, they say.
The results of this research were published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
Held at the University of Washington in Seattle, they found that those who have a simpler sense of humor tend to interact better with people.
On the other hand, those who are more honest and direct can be perceived as difficult people to deal with, so they lose friends and find it more difficult to relate to the environment.
The research focused on one hundred people, who were asked to evaluate jokes and express their opinions in a completely honest way.
The most common trend was that the most sincere people were those who had less sense of humor.
Do you think this is a “rule”?
