Laughter: A Signal For Mutual Vulnerability

Laughter may relate to our own vulnerability or of other people and could be a way to express this feeling vocally.

  • Lifting Laughter: A way of positively signalling someone who made a fool of themselves that everything is okay and we all are susceptible to the same kind of errors and misfortunes.
  • Self-lifting Laughter: The person who made a fool of himself (or herself) often chuckles with embarrassment. This is self-lifting laughter, signalling that what the person went through is human, and could happen to anyone.
