Why was that joke funny? These days everyone in Egypt seems to be talking about nothing but politics. The number of
and status updates about politics have exceeded those of any other topic. Amidst all of these events i started to notice that sometimes people make fun of others for a purpose that is different than just making people laugh. Earlier in my articles i said that people put others down just to feel good about themselves. Its so common for a person who feels jealous of another person to. In the past few days a famous singer here in Egypt, Ihab Tawfik, started singing songs that supports one political party (the army with its followers and supporters) As a result those who dislike that party started to towards Ihab and within days a funny picture of him showed up everywhere on the internet. The picture had nothing more than the guy lifting relatively light weights while wearing an outfit that didn\’t seem that manly to some gym buddies. Why do people make fun of others? The question that needs to be answered is why this picture appeared at that specific time? And if the picture was really funny then why didn\’t it appear earlier? 1) People see things differently to support their beliefs: Hadn\’t some people not been offended by what that singer did they wouldn\’t have found the joke that funny. In other words, people twist what they see in order to put the people they don\’t like down (see and 2) They needed to get revenge: Because those people found no other way to get revenge putting that guy down by making fun of him was the best choice (see also In my previous article i said that we find some jokes funny because of two things 1) the funny part and 2) the extent to which they satisfy our unmet needs.
Now because that Joke now satisfies a need that wasn\’t previously there it became much more funnier to some people and that\’s why it became popular at that time. Of course there are people who really found the joke funny even though they had no connection to politics in Egypt but the reason this joke reached them in the first place is that those who were really offended marketed it. Are people making fun of you? In the i said that the people who make fun of others are always in the week position. Whether its jealousy, feelings of inferiority or the desire to get revenge in all cases the reason someone would be making jokes about someone else would be his desire to overpower him because he already feels week.

If a complete stranger made fun of you it would be extremely easy to reply back shouting at him and telling him that he doesnвt have the right to do so but what about people you barley know who make fun of you? In such a situation replying back in an aggressive way would make you look unstable while in the same time doing nothing might encourage those people to make fun of you all the time. In this article I will explain the right way to deal with people who make fun of you without being either passive or aggressive. Never defend yourself: If someone made fun of your shirt you should never defend your position by trying to explain why the shirt looks that way because by doing so you are telling him that you agree with his opinion!! Sting like a bee: If you replied back immediately and right away this person will think twice before attempting to make fun of you once again. Your reply should focus on attacking the person and not on defending yourself. for example if he made fun of your shirt make fun of his trousers right away. (Him: your shirt looks awful You: yes but compared to your trousers itвs a master piece) Throw a Psychological Shock bomb: when you tell someone about the emotion that was behind his behavior he usually experiences a sudden shock.
For example if you pointed to someone indirectly that he is doing a certain behavior out of he will try to not do that action again not to appear jealous. For example if someone made fun of you in front of others you could reply saying (respect is earned man, you canвt force those people to respect you by trying to make fun of someone else in front of them). Leave right after the strike: Usually when the person recovers from your attack he will become eager to reply back once again thatвs why the best thing you can do is to leave right after replying successfully. By doing so you will make sure that this person would be feeling defeated until your next meeting Cmon man, do you still remember that?? : if you returned back three days after making a successful strike then the person tried to make fun of you once again reply saying \”oh my God, i can\’t believe that you are still pissed off since last time,Didnвt knew I hurt you that much, sorry!! Same words different meaning: If the person tried to make fun of you in a real mean way you can reply back with words that appear to be positive but that have bigger meanings behind them, for example if someone tried to make fun of you as a response to your attack reply telling him \”Sorry man, didnвt knew that you were that and that you were pissed off\” The word sensitive is a good word but he will interpret it in a different way.
In the i explained how replying back assertively to people who make fun of you is an essential step for building self respect and self confidence. You must stop those who try to make fun of you but in the same time you shouldn\’t use any of these tips against harmless people. I do my best not to make fun of anybody and to whenever possible but because the world has some mean people who can make fun of you in a bad way its good to learn these skills just to be able to defend yourself whenever needed. don\’t use this information to attack close friends or peaceful people but use it with those who deserve it. 2knowmysef is not a complicated medical website nor a boring online encyclopedia but rather a place where you will find simple, to the point and effective information that is backed by psychology and presented in a simple way that you can understand and apply.
