i dont understand how finland can be the happiest?!
every time i come across a fin he sounds mad depressed??
this list is sus..
It must be a colossal pride to be coming from the happiest or second-happiest country in the world. That's great indeed. I had to scroll all the way down to not even see it there, at all. It matters, despite how happy I may be, the others' happiness also affect mine and I would like to see more happy faces. But still make sure you're happy yourself first and only then look elsewhere
No 51, politicians should be doing a lot of things, but they never will. The only thing that would make this country happier in the long run is improving education so people can get better wages, because they produce more in the industry. Will never happen, because investing in education is longer term than 4 years... I try to do my part by going back to uni and teaching students as well as I can in my free time, but it's a drop in the sea.
The reason many people in Hungary are unhappy is because half the country is living paycheck to paycheck. Most people always have that feeling of existential dread. Things are OK now, but what will happen if I'm fired? Can I still feed my kids if food prices increase another 50%? (They will.) Thankfully I can still provide for myself and my GF, so I can be happy, but I know for most people this is not the case unfortunately.
ye its just bullshit, lol
I would believe in israel and swiss, but other than that its just bullshit
all day crying scandinavia – all day screaming NA – urugay, guatemala, panama
like its not even funny
Finland happiest country in the world?
really not feeling like an 8 rn
That ranking has nothing to do with actual happiness. It has more to do with how content people feel about their lives in a said country. It's possible to feel content with your life while not being happy.
Chaos in Denmark, revolts coming up after the Finns whacked them again!
Suicide rate is high in Finland. My dad lives in Rovaniemi and when i visit i find the whole place depressing if there wasn't snow.
British people are naturally cynical so would always do badly on these surveys.
Conclusion: These surveys are bullshit.
maybe its just how do you define happiness. yes finnish ppl arent extra positive smiling etc and they dont show their feelings to others which may make it look like theyre really depressed to ppl looking from outside but yeah. and i dont know if its the accent or smth that make them "sound" depressed. noticed sometimes in CS when a finn gives info some ppl are like "u sound so depressed" which i dont kinda understand why. like is he supposed to laugh and sound happy meanwhile giving info where the enemies are or smth.
Finnish people in general show very little emotion even if they are happy (especially in public), so that's probably why so many from the outside think it sounds weird Finland is ranked 1st in the happiness ranking every year. Also many Finns think people from other countries are happier since they show much more emotion so we also find it weird we are ranked the happiest when we look constantly depressed compared to them lol
maybe this is a list of the most delusional people, not the happiest? I mean, how can you even measure happiness? There is no standard for happiness - where one feels happy, other can feel shitty. If it's based on people voting if they are happy or not, then it would most definitely be very delusional
Finnish people just don't understand the difference in being content and being happy.
Don’t know how but higher than Norway is a dub
1.) Visit Finland and go to a town centre and look around you.
2.) Visit any Mediterranean country and do the same.
Tell me who *looks* happiest, have done both many times and I can tell you, it does not seem like Finland to me. You can hear a pin drop in Finland it's quite a socially awkward place.
24th, i expected much worse tbh
sweden is gonna go down in ranking every year if they dont fix there country
We have sauna, beer and laituri, and a seven month winter that makes us appreciate summer all the more.
Pretty good internet access, pure/high quality ingredients in grocery stores, amazing nature all around, very good human rights situation compared to shit holes that still exist for some reason (no matter what some idiots think, you ARE allowed to say stupid shit - being considered an idiot for saying it is just the natural consequence, you won't be put in jail), universal healthcare, free schools + school meals, and still the default assumption is that if someone is supposed to do something, they are trustworthy and will do it in stead of rip you off only thinking of themselves (disregarding politicians, but nothing big really ever changes anyway so status quo remains).
Also everyone talking about how we "look depressed" because we're not talking and shouting all the time, lmao. I'll take happiness over excessive social gesturing anytime.
If Finland is the happiest country then the rest of the world must be pretty damn miserable.
yu are always happy when you cold as ice
once again we are on top of NA
aren't finns the most depressed people?
Whole nordic in top 7, and people wonder why I don't want to live anywhere else
Maybe you should try being happier next time :|
Bullshit just like "finland is the most racist country" just bullshit
Am i supposed to believe that people who barely see the sun, and one of the countries that has the highest depressionrate/suicide are also the happiest people in the world?
Our ppl and politicians are too busy voting for and building coalitions with a far right party whose member had connections to neonazi institutions, literature etc on mass. Surely this will massively improve Austria!
But Finland has a 15.3/100,000 suicide rate, how is it possible?
we are all miserable here, rest of the world should get their s*** together
Notice how all the Nordic/Scandinavian countries are high-ranked. Any ideas on why? Perhaps its the nature or something?
no one asked me if i am happy how do these happen?
Everyone is happy while drunk i guess
Denmark cant be happiest country in the world with the following facts still remaining: Astralis bots, Heroic cheater org, cheater Hunden still active, cadian cringe, used german child soldiers to dispose of beachmines in movie "Land of Mine"
Well it's alright can be worse.
Life expectancy is obviously a perfect metric fro happiness
I don't know if that is unusually high or low for UK standards...
Wasn't Finland having one of the top suicides rates?
Anyone who has met a Finn knows this is total bullshit. They are so dark and depressed. This is the problem with factoring in quality of life measurements into a happiness rating. You can live in an absolute shithole and be happy. Look at india, some of the happiest people in the world live there. Anyone who has travelled throughout North America and the Nordic countries knows we’re way happier in NA.
Fake, you can't be that happy with so less sun time
iceland on top!!
LMAO israel :)
We're good, we just need to improve education, health, public security, basic sanitation, average income, gang activity and widespread corruption. But apart from that we're fine!
Jokes aside, brazilians are very smiling and easy going in general, but I feel it's more about a momentary enthusiasm, not a deep and genuine satisfaction for one's life.
finland is happiest country because the people are constantly unhappy
I know this sounds contradictory but this also means that if there are problems then we tend to look toward solving them and are never satisfied, compare to USA for example where they think everything they do is the greatest even if its dogshit
but people say the nordic countries people are depressed
and that these studies on the internet are only based on the quality of life, salaries and things like that.
Yes I believe these lists
new zealand 10 australia 12 explain
this rank is bullshit i am depressed and sad much more than a guy from midle east
Suicide leaders are too high
Happiness is what you make of it, no ranking proves anything
this ranking is such a bullshit lmao, methodology behind it is stupid
bro is competing in happiness
how can finland be nr.1 when all they do is drink they coffee, bring them knives to school and kill themselves during the winter?
Finland too much vodka to be sad
Happiness is just an eery concept
Its mostly because of sauna
Germany rank 16. Understandable, no csgo betting allowed. With csgobetting rank 1.
Only country where Gambina is sold. Just saying.
Snow + rendeer = ultimate happiness
I expected Russia to be lower tbh....
because they listen to more metal than danes do
i bring my country rate way up
Gj Finland true happiness 8/8
