Ever giggled at a funeral?
Laughed at Kim K's cry-face?
Found someones else's embarrassing, yet painful fall absolutely hilarious?
Well you might just be a genius.
A new study shows that the more intelligent you are, the more you appreciate dark humour.
Intelligence was measured by a verbal and non-verbal IQ test and was also positively correlated to higher levels of indication.
Interestingly this combination of high intelligence, education level and enjoyment of dark humour, also meant low aggressiveness.
This means, conversely, that lower IQ and lower levels of education meant participants didn't like dark humour at all and were more prone to aggressiveness.
The study used a book called The Black Book by Uli Stein, which is filled with dark cartoons.
It describes itself as 'Abyssal, deep black humour beyond all limits of taste.'
Sounds good, no?
Another study also found that dark humour was most prevalent in those who had experienced trauma in their lives as it acted as a coping mechanism.
Laughing is proven to increase wellbeing too, so if negative situations can be made into a dark joke, you're improving you mental and physical health.
So next time some really, colossally s*** stuff happens in the world, like, we don't know, someone winning an election you didn't expect or something, you've just got to laugh.
You're an evil genius after all.
