Abstract:
Amusement, unlike some other positive emotions, may facilitate social courage in the interpersonal relations (Kryœ, 2010). In two experiments we explore possible mechanisms underlying this effect. The social courage of amused people may have different roots than the social courage of people experiencing pride (experiment 1) and amused participants turned out to be more distanced to their self (experiment 2).

Keywords: amusement, social courage, positive emotions, humor, social functions of emotions, positive psychology
