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.
    So judging strictly from the content in this quote the study could just be rephrased "most content/happy places."

    Sweden more emotional than Italy? You have to be kidding me...

    I believe they asked questions related to both positive and negative emotions...otherwise it doesn't make any sense.

    The study was about frequency of emotions, or acceptance to statements like "I've had a lot of feelings during this day" and similar.

    Doesn't sound great, considering that the word "a lot" referred to feelings may have rather different connotations in say, Finland and Italy.

    Yeah, that seems odd. Lamborghini says the transmission in the Aventador provides highly emotional shifts. That seems like a very Italian thing to say.

    .
    Yeah that does seem wrong but I can only guess. I also would have thought more Latin American countries would be emotional.

    People can be calibrated quite differently as to what they consider being emotional. Some people can raise their voice, increase their heart rate, and swing their arms about and declare, "I am not being emotional". Others can offer a slim smile and head nod and consider that they have been overwhelmed with joy. If the initial chart is accurate, I suspect this is part of the issue.

    I was going to ask about the data collection and its meaning too, I'm really interested in this and also would be interested in research which could plot the prevailence of particular sorts of personality typology too. This morning I was thinking too about whether or not anyone had researched and plotted the incidence of mental illnesses, what they were, also pro-social and anti-social behaviour and crime.

    I'm actually interested in which nations have experienced the most rapid breakdown or change in their fundamental social institutions and what has been pinpointed as the significant changes contributing to or attempting to counter the same things.

    Sometimes I wonder if incivility and casualisation of violence has been on the rise while serious violence or perpetual conflicts have receeded, I saw a police officer have to dismount a motorcycle after pursuing a guy and physically apprehend him today, I dont see that kind of thing very often.
