Children, especially excited ones, can’t stop laughing while tickled, even if they really hate it. This reflective laughter gives parents the illusion that the child is amused, when not really. In a study done at the University of California in 1997, scientists found that tickling does not produce the same happiness as when someone laughs at a funny joke. Tickling only creates an illusion to outsiders that they are smiling.
