Are you a workaholic?

25th April 2012

Psychologists have devised a new test to determine whether people are officially addicted to work.

Scientists at the Nottingham Trent University and the University of Bergen tested 12,000 workers to find out the key elements of “workaholism” and devised a questionnaire which leads people to discover such traits as thinking how they can free up more time for work, working long than intended and working to reduce feelings of guilt, anxiety, helplessness and depression. Those who score a 4 or 5 on four or more of the seven questions may be considered workaholics.
