    One policy I follow is that first, second, third, whatever impression can be false, there are always some underlying reasons to people's behaviour, so I try not to underestimate people and always give them a chance. People have better days, worse days, they change, so they might give off positive or negative vibes, depending on them and myself. Therefore, in a way, I "like" everybody because I want to see what will happen.

    It's situational for me, something they say initially catches my eye, whether it's something funny, smart, insightful, fitting my mindset at that particular moment. I don't look at type at all. When a particular person catches my eye, I tend to "focus" on them for a while to get some kind of a picture of them, whenever they post in the threads, they just pop up more than others. When I have done that, I move on to somebody else and the previous ones are saved in the "bank". So, when I happen to encounter them again in threads, I immediately get the sense: "Oh, he/she gave me a positive/negative vibe the last time, what will it be this time?". It's like mapping people I observe.
    100% all of the above.

    And also because message content is secondary to a lot of people.

    Or maybe you just don't understand the content.

    I didn't say you can't both be funny and have content in your posts. I said that posts with content and devoid of humor are often given less credit than ones that lack content but feature humor.

    But isn't the best kind of humor that which is content-rich and insightful?

    Humor devoid of content is slapstick and might elicit a smile or a quick laugh but more often elicits annoyance, at least for me, and I'd think for most people who frequent this particular community.

    It is undeniable that human beings appreciate a good sense of humor in others, and I don't think there is anything wrong in that.

    But, why are most of us here?

    And, I think the broadest most applicable answer is that we are here to learn about life, others and ourselves.

    And this learning process is facilitated by, and predicated on *the content of the communication*, no?

    I sometimes appreciate posts that are humor-free if the topic is serious, or I'm in the mood to debate, of course. I'm an ENFP (are you an INFP?) and I'm often in the mood for silly or sarcastic instead of constant SRS CAT R SRS. I can get plenty of that heaviness from my school work and the news. I tend to be drawn to the social element of this site as much (sometimes more) than the debates or serious conversations.

    Also, I think some of the funniest people on here are also the smartest.

    Humor quality is very subjective. Different strokes for different folks.

    Individual interest in particular content is subjective too, but whether your like the person or not, the content is still there whereas the humor is always in the eye of the beholder. ("flying over one's head" "i hate splapstick" "I love sarcasm" "I like pizza" etc)

    Well, I'm pretty sure the answer is very different depending on whom you ask. I see people being interested both in the message and how it is presented.

    But I wouldn't say this community values content more than interaction style when it comes to liking a certain member, no.


    Btw, just to clarify, I wasn't being too serious when I used the word "disgusted", previously. But I do weep for people with valuable insight (or experiences) that aren't giving as much credit for lack of "charisma", and that what I was hinting at. I'm not talking about me of course...I'm beyond awesome. But not everyone is like me.

    I'm an ENFP. I value humor as much as the next guy. Something devoid of humor doesn't register as "heavy" at all though.

    Some of the funniest people here might also be the smartest (disregarding for a moment the fact that everyone has their sense of what is funny and what isn't), but that's also a part of it for me : I don't regard funniness or intelligence as the best attributes when it comes to liking someone in here. Whatever floats your boat, of course.

    Yeah different strokes for different folks, of course. I was just responding to the extremely strong statement that you were "disgusted" at how many people listed being funny as somethng that mattered.
