My wife has been in a training class all week. She's been learning about how to teach people with different learning styles - and since everybody has a different learning style, this is good stuff to know. The training class is called "All Kinds of Minds."
In her discussions she's learned about different constructs. One construct is the social construct. One aspect of the social construct is humor. My wife is learning about how to cope with people who are the class clowns or who say inappropriate things and inappropriate times.
This is where I come in.
Apparently I have a problem with my "humor regulation functionality" within my "social cognition construct." When I am placed in a situation where I should obviously not say whatever is in my head at the moment, I say it anyway. This is apparently a bad thing.
My humor is broken!
From now on I am supposed to think about what I say before I say it. Hopefully that will give me more time to think of a real zinger.
I've been told that some things I put on the blog are inappropriate for parents or small children, and that I should create a separate blog for posts that would be offensive or inappropriate for parents / small children. Just comparing parents to small children is funny enough for me. But I think that is discrimination, and I am a uniter, not a divider. If I don't get the chance to offend my parents once a day then I have failed as a child.
Maybe my humor isn't broken - maybe this so-called "social cognition construct" is just a farce. All Kinds of Minds, my ass! I think I just humor regulation functionalied in my pants.
