Do You Cackle, Giggle, Or Snort? Your Laugh Reveals Secrets To Your Personality

Ally is a born-and-bred Jersey Girl who studied English and Journalism at Rutgers University. In her free time, she spends too much money on food, continues the endless search for her next favorite book, and fails to use her gym membership on a daily basis. She comes from a huge, crazy family that sells Fish & Chips for a living and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

We all laugh, and if we’re very lucky, we do so often.

There are a million reasons why we laugh. A funny joke, a comedy film, a great story from a friend — it can be the tiniest thing that sets us off.

And sometimes, we really can’t stop once we start!

But what most people don’t know is that your laugh can tell the people around you something very specific about your personality.

Whether your laugh is loud and booming or as quiet as a mouse, there’s a message that you’re sending with the sound that you make.

Like with the true meaning of your dreams, these hidden messages are totally natural and come from a truly authentic place inside of you.

It’s so interesting — I couldn’t believe what my guffaw says about my personality.

It’s so true!

Check out the list below, and see what your laugh is saying about you!

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 Cackle

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 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

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.

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

Snickerers 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.
