Subject: Request for participation in an online humor study


I am a social-personality psychology graduate student working with Harry
Reis at the University of Rochester. I would like to invite you to
participate in an online study conducted by one of our undergraduate
senior honors thesis students examining the role of sense of humor in

In order to participate, you must be at least 18 years of age and
to invite a friend or partner to participate in the study with you. We
will ask you to rate several jokes and answer questions about your
relationship with your friend, then contact your friend to complete the
same online survey. In exchange for your time, we will provide you with
feedback about how similar your sense of humor is to your friend's sense
of humor.

If you are interested in participating, please click on the link below

We would also appreciate it if you would pass this message along to your
students or others who may be interested in participating.

Thank you in advance for your assistance with this study!
