Humor. Creativity. Success

(Opinion article)

It is obvious that success depends on many factors such as education, luck, hard work, family, personal life, appearance, country. When we think of success, we immediately think of the Big Five on personality traits – openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, neuroticism. Although the sense of humour could be accommodated within all of them, I would like to examine it on its own and its impact on success.

According to the psychologist Edward de Bono, humour is by far the most significant activity of the human brain. It is an intellectual emotion. Thus, it can be a powerful business tool for several reasons. Here are some I especially esteem.

  1. Humor creates mindfulness, perspective, and balance. If laughter is a part of you and your company’s life, the mistakes will be often forgiven and the employees will be less anxious around you and relaxed. As a result, they will make fewer mistakes and your business will thrive.
  2. Humor promotes a sense of unity and shared culture.  Nobody wants to work for a sourpuss but for someone who can laugh. Laughter increases your employees’ morale and builds corporate e
  3. Humor facilitates creativity. If you can laugh at yourself, then you can inspire others to be more creative and productive. Humor has a power to open people up to new possibilities and frees their minds to spark new ideas.
  4. Humor humanizes leaders. It allows both employees and managers to come together, realizing that they all work for a common purpose.


To sum up, if used in a right way, a sense of humour can be a universal “gun.” It can boost productivity and build trust, reduce stress level and improve your health, encourage good teamwork and increases productivity. Humor is humanizing, after all. To my mind, these reasons are meaningful enough to prove that a sense of humor is vital to your success.
