Depressed people are for the most part concentrated on themselves and their troubles. People with a well developed sense of humor do not put themselves in the center of the universe. Tolerant people do take into account other people and their rights and needs, so the aim of the research was to established possible relations between these variables. Students at the University of Zagreb have given answers to scales of tolerance towards family members and peers, a depression questionnaire and two tests for sense of humor. The obtained results show some interesting relations between the examined variables.
