Philippines is among the most emotional countries in the world according to the 2019 Global Emotions Report.
According to the Gallup 2019 Global Emotions Report, the Philippines, along with three other countries, topped the list of most emotional nations last year.
“On average, six in 10 residents in each of these countries reported experiencing positive or negative emotions the previous day,” the report said. “Percentages ranged from a high of 60% in Niger, the Philippines, Liberia and Ecuador to a low of 34% in Belarus.”
Gallup interviewed more than 151,000 adults from 140 countries in 2018 to come up with the results of the study. According to their website, the “study measures life’s intangibles — feelings and emotions — that traditional economic indicators such as GDP were never intended to capture.”
Some of the questions asked were: Did you feel well-rested yesterday?, Were you treated with respect all day yesterday?, Did you smile or laugh a lot yesterday?, Did you experience the following feelings during a lot of the day yesterday? How about physical pain?
The Philippines, Niger, Ecuador, and Liberia, were followed by Costa Rica, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Peru (59%), and Nicaragua, Honduras, Sri Lanka, Guatemala (58%).
They also found that more than one out of three people said they experienced a lot of worry and at least one out of five experienced sadness or anger. Meanwhile, Paraguay has the highest Positive Experience Index score worldwide and Afghanistan’s Positive Experience Index score dropped to a record low.
The margin of sampling error ranged from ±2.1 to ±5.3 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.
