Dominican Republic makes the “most emotional societies” top 15
Santo Domingo.– The Dominican Republic is ranked twelfth on a recent Gallup poll of the world’s most emotional societies, where the Philippines came out on top.
Tied with the Dominican Republic at 54 percent “responding yes” are Chile, Costa Rica, Canada, Guatemala, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Nicaragua and the United States.
Gallup spent three years gathering data from over 150 countries by asking 1,000 residents from each place whether they experienced 10 different emotions each day: five positive ones and five negative ones.
Some of the questions included: were you treated with respect all day yesterday? Did you feel enjoyment? Stress? Anger? Did you smile or laugh a lot yesterday?
Results are based on telephone and face-to-face interviews with approximately 1,000 adults, aged 15 and older, in each country each year between 2009 and 2011.
Singaporeans are the least likely in the world to report experiencing emotions of any kind on a daily basis. The 36% who report feeling either positive or negative emotions is the lowest in the world.
