Which Type are You
Author: Catherine Pulsifer
We are all infectious.
What matters is what type of
infectious person we are.
Have you ever noticed that some people's laughter is infectious; it makes you
laugh. The average child laughs at least 100-200 times a day. But, the average
adult only laughs 10 to 15 times a day! As per e.e. cummings words, "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."
A Valuable Asset
One of your most valuable assets is a good sense of humor. In general,
humorous people are fun to be with, have less stress, and a healthier
outlook on life. Humor truly is a great stress reliever!
Norman Cousins quote, "What was significant about the laughter . . .
was not just the fact that it provides internal exercise for a person . . .
form of jogging for the innards, but that it creates a mood in which the other positive emotions can be put to work, too."
There are also people who have such a positive outlook on life that you find
talking with them helps you to be positive. And, there are those who are so
motivated to excel they actually inspire others! These people have less stress
in their life as they find the positive and humor in situations.
On the other hand, some people are so depressing, so negative, and so
cynical, they only bring you down. A quote by Henry Ward Beecher,
"A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs - jolted by every pebble in the road."
Bob Newhart once said, "Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.
When you reflect on Mr. Newhart's thought, you will see that laughter actually can bring us stress relief.
When you stop and think about the type of person you are, do you consider yourself positive or negative? Happy or sad?
Enthusiastic or a complainer? Funny or a downer? Happy-go-lucky or a worry-wart? The list goes on and on.
We all influence and have an effect on the people around us. You know what it is like when you walk into a room and you can cut the tension with a knife. Or, you walk in a room and the atmosphere is one
that is relaxed and people are happy and pleasant. Are you the type of person people want to be around?
Which type of infectious person are you?
