Countries with the Biggest Self-esteem
Among all the countries around the globe there must be the biggest, the strongest, the richest, but also the most proud and unwilling to obey and foreign so called authorities and rulers. I’m not sure how is that determined, must be lots of interviews, and you’d have to follow the countries history and see all tha happenings and reactions of the people. It’s not an easy thing to be the biggest or the richest, but without great self-esteem it is worth nothing. So believe it or not the first country on the top 10 self-esteem list is Serbia. And also believe it or not, the last one is Japan. See? The size and money don’t have to mean anything. I can almost feel that you’re asking me about USA, well, they’re on the 6th place. Want to improve your self-confidence?
Your global neighbors could give you some advice. That was the general motto of the international research on nations’ self-esteem that was conducted last spring. This research project was led by Dr. David Schmitt, a professor and director of the Department of Psychology at Bradley University. The anonymous survey covered some 17,000 people in 53 countries of the world. The number of participants in each country ranged from, for example, 59 in Cyprus to more than 2,700 in the United States. The survey was led by professors from Bradley University and their colleagues from abroad. The main questions in the questionnaire were:
1. Do you believe that you have self-confidence?
2. Which country do you think, and why, has the highest degree of self-confidence?
3. Which nation has, in your estimation, the highest level of self-confidence?
4. Do you feel able to do things as well as most other people?
5. Do you have a positive attitude towards yourself?
6. Do you feel like a failure?
The survey included both personal and romantic information and statements about other peoples, nations and peoples. One of the researchers, Miranda Hiti unveiled the first unofficial information from this research in the American magazine and on its website WebMD Medical News last week. According to these results, this international study of nations’ self-esteem Serbia is on the top. Serbs are the bravest and people with best self-esteem in the world. Both the Serbs and other nations share this opinion, who admitted in the survey that Serbia went through a difficult period last year, but its people are never despondent.
