(A) A person who lacks self-confidence will enjoy neither telling nor hearing funny stories about himself or herself.
(B) People with high self-confidence do not tell funny stories or jokes about others.
(C) Highly self-confident people tell funny stories and jokes in order to let their audience know that they are self-confident.
(D) Most people would rather tell a funny story or joke than listen to one being told.
(E) Telling funny stories or jokes about people in their presence is a way of expressing oneâ€™s respect for them.
