In a study of laughter, Prof. Jo-Anne Bachorowski's team asked listeners to rate examples of the different laugh types in terms of their friendliness, sexiness, how interested they would be in meeting the laugher, whether they thought the laugh should be included in a laugh track, and the extent to which it elicited a positive emotional response.

Take one of the following surveys to rate the different types of laughs and see how your evaluation compares to that of the study, as well as answers by other people who take this online survey.
