Indulgence versus Restraint

Indulgent cultures will tend to focus more on individual happiness and well being, leisure time is more important and there is greater freedom and personal control.? This is in contrast with restrained cultures where positive emotions are less freely expressed and happiness, freedom and leisure are not given the same importance.

The above quoted text may be true in certain cases but not in all? Indulgent cultures may spend a huge part of their lives striving to increase their already self-gained lavish lifestyles. This alone can induce frustration which can lead to unhappiness. Less indulgent cultures may not experience such pressures and literally ‘smell the roses’ a lot more!

So who is better off?
