INCONGRUITY/INCONSISTENCY THEORIES OF HUMOR. The incongruity/ inconsistency theories of humor are characterized generally by cognitions involving disjointed ideas, ill-suited ideational pairings of situations, and/or presentations of ideas or situations that diverge from habitual or expected customs. According to the principle of incongruity (i.e., the incompatibility of contexts or materials), the perception of contrast, contrariness, expectancy violations, inconsistency, incongruity, and/or uncommon or novel mixtures of relations is central to the humor experience.
