Respondents 420 SMP, SMA, and SMK students were obtained through the distribution of online questionnaires using google-form with the help of their school counselors. The humor style questionnaire was arranged based on the humor style dimensions of Martin (2003), namely self-enhancing, aggressive, affiliative, and self-defeating, while the cyberbullying behavior questionnaire was arranged based on three aspects of cyberbullying behavior by Lee, Abell, and, Holmes (2015), namely verbal/written bullying, visual/sexual bullying, and social exclusion.

Affiliative humor style has a significant negative relationship with cyberbullying behavior, aggressive humor style has a significant positive relationship with cyberbullying behavior. While the other two styles of humor, namely self-enhancing humor and self-defeating humor, did not show a significant relationship with cyberbullying behavior.
