  • How do you improve your social skills and sense of humor?

    I read a thread on the forum about ones husband not having a good sense of humor, which isnt wrong really from the wifes part or the husbands. But how do you improve your social skills, sense of humor after a certain age. I mean, when youre young you can just be open and do any joke, if its a bad one or it annoys anyone then it wouldnt really hurt your 'reputation' as you wouldnt really have any and they would just call it a kiddish joke and soon youll start to do better jokes and have better social skills. But after a certain age, at a certain position how do you improve your social skills and humor?

    Good question..I think it's important to improve ones manners.like being more generous,helpful,caring,patient, taking other ppls feelings into consideration etc. But in regards to humor everyone is different. I might think someone has a great sense of humor but you might disagree.

    ..so personally I think you should surround yourself with ppl who accept your humor or lack thereof.
    Allah is towards you as you are towards Him and His servants."
    [Imam Ibn al Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah RahimahuAllah]

      Social skills can only be improved with social interaction....

        Can be improved by trying bt at the same time sum ppl are more inclined/predisposed one way or the other.
        And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in the land and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record�

          The social skills seem more easier to work on than the humor. The best way to improve social skills is to interact and converse with others. Either with friends, family, colleagues or strangers. It's especially helpful if you're part of a group, club, organization etc. Not even that, talking with someone on the train, at work, at the gym etc can all improve social interaction. There's also a lot of literature on it in case you want to build on particular social skills.

          As for humor, find something that's relevant and would generally be funny and talk about it with others. Embarrassing experiences, stories, movies, shows etc can make for a humorous conversation. I don't think anyone uses 'jokes' anymore though. Just make sure that they're appropriate and not at the expense of others.

            Learn to not always be an adult or an old-fart as is said. Let loose. Be a kid, let the inner child come out (with adult supervision), laugh at yourself first without feeling embarrassed or too awkward (obv don't be laughing at your own reflection when someone is there). Don't worry about cracking jokes for now.

            You mention "after a certain age" again more rules on yourself like an oldie, this isn't necessary. Forget the age like kids do.

            Thats about humour ^^

            Social skills, socialise? But maybe be more comfortable in yourself first

                  I admire your traits Op. Immaturity gets the best of me.
                  And whatever you have of favor - it is from Allah. Then when adversity touches you, to Him you cry for help

                    My lack of humor and attempts at it are humorous in and of themselves, but of course, with the right people....
                    Just find people you are comfortable around and be yourself....
                    You could also 'loosen up' a bit if you are generally known as the stiff shoulders kinda person...
                    You could start out by laughing at peoples joke, commenting on them, sharing stories along similar lines...etc

                    But I would say if you're not the jokester and it feels akward/uncomfortable to find humoir in everything, then worry too much...its just a personality disposition.

                      I'm just silly and my lil bro says i act younger than a 23 year old (which is big to him), i like cartoons :)
                      Abu Malik at-Ash'ari reported:

                      The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith

                      and al-Hamdu Lillah (all praise and gratitude is for Allah alone) fills the scale, and Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah)

                      and al-Hamdu Lillah fill up what is between the heavens and the earth, and prayer is a light,

                      and charity is proof (of one's faith)

                      and endurance is a brightness and the Holy Qur'an is a proof on your behalf or against you.

                      All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.

                      أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

                      Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

                          My boss once said to me you're hilarious and random -________-

                          Just don't be afraid to show the real silly you....... I guess everyone has their funny/ hilarious side. Some are just too afraid to show it. Some just don't care let me show it. Just be all out. Don't worry about people's judgement.

                          They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it (61 : 8)
