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.

A it is.

A person confident will enjoy telling jokes about himself, a person who lacks self-confidence will not enjoy it. It is directly supported by the argument.

Must be "A". Applied the same logic as the one in the question albeit in a reverse scenario.
