An easy willingness to tell funny stories or jokes about oneself is the surest mark of supreme self-confidence. This willingness, often not acquired until late in life, is even more revealing than is good-natured acquiescence in having others poke fun at one. Which one of the following inference is most supported by the statements above?
(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 one’s respect for them.
agreed that an easy willingness to tell funny stories is a mark of supreme self confidence but nothing in the stimulus suggests that lack of self confidence will enjoy neither telling nor hearing funny stories about himself or herself.
And in an inference question we cannot bring in "new" information. we have to get it from the stimulus.
Not able to figure out the answer.OA with explaination please and the source.
