As the world grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic, emerging adults, who were forced to adapt and navigate the uncertain waters, faced unprecedented challenges. Understanding psychological constructs like Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) became crucial in acquiring important knowledge to aid their well-being. A study was conducted to investigate the roles of forgiveness and humility in shaping FOMO perceptions among 714 emerging adults. It utilized an online survey given to students at a local private university during the pandemic. Employing regression analysis, findings reveal that forgiveness served as a significant negative predictor (-0.135, p = 0.004), while state humility emerged as a significant positive predictor (0.067, p = 0.029) of FOMO. The model accounts for 1.8% of the variance in FOMO (R Square = 0.018), indicating a modest yet statistically significant impact. The research aimed to contribute to a broader understanding of the socio-psychological impact of forgiveness, humility, and FOMO during times of global uncertainty. The insights from this study can provide valuable implications for mental health interventions and support strategies for emerging adults facing volatile and erratic situations, such as COVID-19.
