    The study was about using humor to increase working group cohesiveness. I added the sense of humor questionnaire (SHQ) in the mix to see if there was any correlation between high scores on the SHQ and increased feelings of cohesiveness at the pre-test. I found that it didn't matter what your sense of humor was, all scores across the board were average.
    What I did see was that nursing staff in the more acute settings were answering yes indeed to the impulsive question.

    Don't think it has a THING to do with work, though... (ESRD/Hemodialysis)... I just "happened" on that, and still there. Love it, too.

    But spontaneous has always been my middle name.
