  • One of the tasks required the participants to attach a candle to a wall
  • Researchers held a series of experiments to analyse how the comments affected our creativity
  • 300 people were used in the experiment, including a control group

People who make sarcastic comments are often accused of using the lowest form of wit but new research suggests sarcasm might make you more creative.

Researchers from Insead, a graduate business school, and several other top American universities including Harvard, held a series of experiments to analyse how the comments affected our creativity.

Published in the Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes journal, the test revealed that using and hearing sarcastic comment made the test subjects three times more creative when they were given a series of tests.

HPC must have some of the most creative people on the planet....

Correlation is not causation. Someone should tell dumb journalists.

Are they dumb? Or perhaps relying on the public to be dumb when selling them newspapers.

Punning is much lower than sarcasm.

I still think HPC OT is the funniest forum I have ever seen.

A mix of wisdom and sheer stupidity, and grammar Nazis, and misogyny.

I always thought that line about sarcasm was dreamed up by somebody too stupid to be properly sarcastic.
