National Survey of 620 Employed Adults
Conducted May 14-15, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports


1* When you get together with family and friends, how often do you discuss things that happen at work?

2* Outside of work, how often do you get together with co-workers for social events?


3* When you get together socially with co-workers, do you spend most of your time discussing work or most of your time discussing things other than work?  (Asked to only those who get together w/ co-workers at least once a month or more – 87 Adults)


4* Do most of your friends know where you work?

5* When you meet someone new and they want to know more about you, do you typically tell them something about your job?


6* If someone asks about your job, what do you tell them first — the company you work for or the job you do?

7* When people ask where you work, are you generally pleased to tell them, embarrassed about it, or neither?

8* Suppose someone left you a small fortune. What would you do if you could quit working and make as much money as you do today for the rest of your life? Would you quit working and retire, keep your current job, or find a new job?

9* Suppose you had a choice between one job that you love and another job that you would hate. If the job you would hate paid 10% more, would you take the extra money or stay with the job you love?
