Coffee is a splendid, energy-boosting thing. It also brings about a great deal of dependence, which is never good. A new infographic reveals that 46 percent of employed people argue they’re less productive without their morning cup of Joe, and that tells me caffeine plays a large, all-consuming role in our lives.
The Career Builder and Dunkin’ Donuts infographic lists which professions lend themselves to coffee drinking most. Scientists/lab technicians are top java drinkers, with PR and marketing workers folks coming in second. Education administrators rank third, and unsurprisingly editors and writers tie for fourth. Health-related professionals are lower on the roundup, with healthcare administrators rating fifth, physicians sixth, and nurses thirteenth. More than likely, they better understand the affect caffeine can have on a person’s health.
That lineup aside, 61 percent of people say they need not one but two cups of coffee to get through the day. Forty-nine percent of people admit to needing caffeine at work in the Northeast, where coffee drinking is more common. No wonder I could never find any Dunkin’ Donuts locations growing up in California! That ticked me off so much. Check out the full infographic before getting your afternoon caffeine fix.
