We all crave for admiration, praise and recognition, don’t we? I mean everyone does. A research company by the name of YouGov has recently published a list of the most admired individuals of 2018. In the list, there are many personalities listed based on the opinions of thirty-seven thousand people belonging to thirty-five countries. YouGov categorizes the polling into distinct male and female groups.
The research was conducted by taking interviews of 37,000 people online. The list was finalized based on the replies to the following two questions, which are:
- Do you admire the person in question?
- Do you admire the particular person the most?
The man who topped the list of most admired individuals is a person who established a tech firm, yes you guessed it right it is none other than the very famous Bill Gates. Microsoft’s co-founder has been named in an annual poll as the world’s most admired man of 2018.
