|Hello, Kitosdad. I'm not sure about this one, because toefl timing is something ]catastrophical for me=) I try to eliminate mistakes after writing, but not sure if it works well
Do you agree or disagree? A good sense of humor is one of the most important human qualities.
Differences between the behavior and the way of talking make our life and communication more interesting. Some people like to see lively personages in their environment, but others prefer to communicate with serious human beings. Even though I cannot say that my sense of humor is very good, I love those people, who always have a good joke for each situation, and I find it not only funny, but also extremely useful characteristic too.
A good sense of humor makes it easier to a person to be at the centre of any company. Even the must boring party may be improved by a lively person. If I were wrong, there would not have existed professional actors, who are paid for making weddings and birthday parties funnier. People need in humor and sometimes we pay for it, when visit theaters, cinema or buy books.
Besides the good skill in talking funny stores, a good sense of humor means that a person can understand jokes of the other people. It makes him more communicative, and it is a very useful skill. For the simplest example, my boss in the last job usually made jokes about other people. I did not understand them and it made my job uncomfortable, so I dropped it.
Finally, I would love to talk about those people, whose sense of humor made them famous and made us remember them even after many years of their death. I mean writers, filmmakers and actors. For instance, Charley Chaplin contributed not only to cinema development, but to the mind of those people, who love and appreciate his unique talent now. His sense of humor was so good, that he did not need to use words to express himself perfectly.
In conclusion, I think that the good feeling of jokes and the possibility to put your own funny story into a right context are very useful skills, because they help us to find contacts with other people easily and make their life a little bit better.
Thank you for your attention
