Jordan is among the top 10 countries in the world where people experience negative emotions. The survey also included questions about positive emotions and stress.

On the list of countries experiencing the least positive experiences, Jordan ranked seventh, behind Afghanistan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, Nepal, and Tunisia, followed by Bangladesh, Algeria, and Ukraine.

As for highest negative experiences, Jordan came fifth, behind Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, and Sierra Leone; after Jordan came Turkey, Bangladesh, Ecuador, Guinea and Benin.

In introducing the report, Gallup CEO Jon Clifton wrote: “As you’ll read in this report, in 2021, negative emotions — the aggregate of the stress, sadness, anger, worry, and physical pain that people feel every day — reached a new record in the history of Gallup’s tracking. This record may not be surprising. The world is suffering from war, inflation, and a once in a-lifetime pandemic. Any one of those would make the world worse, but the global rise of unhappiness started long before any of those issues made headlines. In fact, unhappiness has been rising for a decade.”
