New Study Shows People with Dark Sense of Humor have higher IQ, lower aggression

If You Laugh at These Dark Jokes, You’re Probably a Genius

According to a new study published in the journal Cognitive Processing, your reaction could indicate your intelligence. In the paper, a team of psychologists concludes that people who appreciate dark humor— defined as 'humor that treats sinister subjects like death, disease, deformity, handicap or warfare with bitter amusement and presents such tragic, distressing or morbid topics in humorous terms'—may have higher IQs, show lower aggression, and resist negative feelings more effectively than people who turn up their noses at it.
