Is humor created more by emotions or intellect
I've been wondering about this. Does the ability to tell jokes come more from your emotional state at the moment, or from your ability to think quickly and your intellectual capacities? I know it's not black and white but which factor is more predominant?
What's your opinion on this?

In my personal case, my intellect allows me to make the jokes, the quick remarks etc. But it really depends on how I feel whether or not I can do it. If I feel a bit down I'm usually not very interested to make any jokes, but if I feel good and am with people who are generally content I can keep going for hours.
Hope that sheds some light on your question, but this is how I experience it in my case.

There's a difference between humor and telling jokes. The ability to tell jokes comes with practice and reading an audience. Sharing a sense of humor is more about being in rapport with someone. Emotions and intellect are both involved.
