Eager to find out the TV presenter that brings the most happiness, OnBuy TV Department led a study using the BriefMood Introspection Scale (BMIS). The BMIS scale consists of participants rating the intensity of their positive emotions, such as happiness and optimism, the results are then collated to create an overall ‘happiness’ score out of 100.
Participants’ scores were taken before watching the video clips and averaged at 28 BMIS points. Their mood was then analysed after watching to note the percentage increase in happiness, upon the previous score.
