Eh, I don't buy it.
Some people with high intellect have zany humor, and some don't.
Pretty sure the zany humor is just cross-contextual processing, IE extraverted intuition from an MBTI standpoint.
Some people are highly intelligent, but lack this function in their core stack. They usually are introverted intuition dom/aux.
You not only have to see the connection, you have to experience joy and appreciation in the process to laugh.
So there's an emotional component, not just pure reasoning.
I can be uber zany sometimes, while at others I'm dead serious and humor seems like a complete waste considering the circumstances.
Humor has it's place. I think it's a double edged sword, and depends how we wield it. It can cause an expansion of consciousness, else keep us in the
"bread and circuses" state of lala land.
The people who are ALWAYS zany tend to get categorized in my "complete and utter fools" category. I think they cause more harm than good.
Balance is best!~
Wanted to add: some humor
is RETARDED!!! Stupid easy connections that I DO NOT appreciate AT ALL!!
So if you find someone not laughing at a joke, don't assume they aren't able to see the connection/incongruity. They could possibly see it so easily,
that it doesn't spark appreciation, rather disgust that you actually believe what you're saying is witty.
It's not by my standards.
