Topical Name Used as Subject : The research findings in the field of humor and psychological well-being have been largely inconsistent. One possible reason for this inconsistency is that researchers have been measuring humor using assessment tools that view humor as an entirely salutary or positive personality characteristic. The purpose of this thesis was to employ a new measure of humor that assesses both potentially adaptive (Affiliative and Self-enhancing) and potentially detrimental styles of humor (Aggressive and Self-defeating) in exploring the role of humor in psychological well-being. Three studies were conducted to achieve this goal. Study 1 examined how humor relates to positive and negative measures of psychological health. This study found that individuals who use Self-enhancing or Affiliative humor are more likely to report better overall psychological adjustment than those who use a Self-defeating humor style. Aggressive humor use was largely unrelated to indices of psychological well-being. Study 2 examined the role of humor in young dating relationships. This study found that when individuals rate their own humor styles, it is the absence of the maladaptive forms of humor (Aggressive and Self-defeating) that predict relationship satisfaction. However, when individuals rate their partners' style of humor, it is the presence of adaptive humor, particularly Affliative humor, which predicts increased relationship satisfaction. Nevertheless, with respect to relationship longevity, both types of adaptive humor and one type of maladaptive humor (Aggressive) predicted break-up. Finally, Study 3 assessed the role of humor in coping with stress using a daily diary methodology. The results of this study showed that Self-enhancing humor as well as the more negative humor styles (Aggressive and Self-defeating) all showed a stress-moderating effect. Possible explanations for these findings and implications for future research are discussed.
