What I mean by this is, have you ever been watching a movie or a TV show with your friends or family and have both been laughing at it :laughing: and then you stop yourself and realize it's not really funny to you at all, like you're just laughing because you noticed the other person was :unsure:. Has this ever happened to you?

It's happened to everyone of all personality types, I think. People just laugh when other people laugh; it's social instinct, which often overrules authenticity in the situations where you're not thinking and monitoring yourself. It depends on the nature of the joke though. If it seriously goes against your personal values you probably wouldn't laugh.

It is the same as that old question: "What is the quickest way to get a smle?" And the answer being, "Give one!" :happy:
Or, if you yawn, watch everyone else take their turn! :laughing:

Depending on the situation, the power of suggestion can be intimidating at times, can't it! If it harmless, then there should not be a problem.
