Participants were asked questions like “Evaluate your life on a scale of 0 to 10” and whether or not they thought their lives would improve in 5-year-time. Commenting on the most emotionless society in the world, Gallup’s Jon Clifton expressed to Bloomberg that “if you measure Singapore by the traditional indicators, they look like one of the best-run countries in the world. But if you look at everything that makes life worth living, they’re not doing so well.”
Lithuania’s Baltic neighbours, Latvia and Estonia, ranked in the 23rd and 32nd position, respectively. According to the Gallup poll, only 37 percent of Lithuanians answered affirmatively to negative questions or to those that measured happiness such as “did you smile yesterday?” or whether they had learnt something interesting or felt respected or well-rested.
On the contrary, survey results suggest that the Danish people seem to be most satisfied with their lives, whilst people from the West African nation of Togo are the lest satisfied. Unsurprisingly, the most pessimistic society in the world today is Greece whereas those most likely to feel stress, anger, sadness, worry or pain were the Iraqi people.
The world’s most emotional nation is the Philippines.
