A person takes work with him to home and is engage in work during weekends and vacation.

 

The only activity that he likes to and talks about is their work.

 

Workaholics work more than 40 hours a week.

 

Work makes them happier than anything else in their life.

 

Their attitude and actions make a statement that they feel sleep and playtime is a big waste.

 

Many workaholics at work found as an energetic and competitive person, while at home they are lethargic and depressed.

 

They get impatient with people who have other priorities besides work.

 

They get irritated when people ask them to stop doing their work in order to do something else.

 

They always think about their work while driving, falling asleep or when others are talking.
