Are you a workaholic? In preparation for my radio appearance on August 4, my friend Fran sent me this on-line quiz that might give you a clue. It is based on the work of Dr. Bryan E. Robinson, from his book Chained to the Desk: A Guidebook for Workaholics, Their Partners and Children, and the Clinicians Who Treat Them (NYU Press, 2001, 280 pages).
Take it yourself, and then ask the most important person in your life to take it (but answer the questions about you). Compare the results and talk about it. My wife and I both took the quiz with me in mind. I scored myself at 57 (not a workaholic, just efficient). She scored me at 67 (workaholic). Interesting food for discussion!
