Philippines: World’s Most Emotional Country

The Philippines is the world’s most emotional country, writes Max Fisher of the Washington Post. A former colony of Spain and the U.S., the largely Catholic nation scores well above second-ranked El Salvador. Gallup since 2009 has surveyed people in 150 countries and territories on, among other things, their daily emotional experience. The more times that people answer “yes” to questions such as “Did you smile or laugh a lot yesterday?” the more emotional they’re deemed to be. Meanwhile, Singapore is the least emotional country in the world.
