Types of Laughs – Which one are you ?
– The Cackle
It takes a very confident person to let out a cackle.
Because this laugh is loud in nature, often louder than any other form of laughter, the person cackling doesn’t mind drawing attention to him or herself.
– The Giggle
Giggling is known to be a way of suppressing laughter in an effort to be polite.
People who giggle are troublemakers who don’t actually go through with the trouble — they’d rather watch someone else do it!
– The Guffaw
The guffaw is a very social laugh, pointing to an extroverted person as the source of the loud, fun sound.
This form of laughter can be contagious — so keep laughing guffawers !
– The Silent Laugh
A person who laughs without making any sound is humble and introverted.
They don’t want to draw any attention to themselves, so they make as little sound as possible.
– The Snicker
Snickers are thought to be witty people who find humor in most things.
Instead of all-out laughing at everything, they let out a little snicker to acknowledge the humor.
– The Snort
A snort is the sound someone makes when they’re suppressing their laughter in some way.
When someone snorts, it points to a modest, introverted person because they’re making an effort to not laugh out loud.
– The Wheeze
Someone who wheezes while she or he laughs is thought to be a funny person.
This laugh is too big to come out in full force, so it sneaks its way out in the form of a deep wheeze.
