Some 7-8% of working Hungarians are workaholics, Magyar Hang reports citing an article published in Mindennapi Pszichológia Magazin.

They are persistent, conscientious, and self-sacrificing; for them, there is no such thing as a switched-off phone or a vacation.

Since it is difficult for them to say no to a task, their colleagues respect them and think of them as maximalists.

It is 25-54-year-olds who are mainly affected by workaholism, and women are five times more likely to develop this passion than men. Education is not a contributing factor.

Workaholism is an addiction; however, unlike other addictions, society often views this as a virtue, said psychologist Dr. Bernadette Kun.
