Does this mean you?

Fascinating new academic study on "burnout" among journalists chronicles a "moderate rate of exhaustion" and "a high rate of cynicism," which should surprise no one, but the details and forecasts are interesting. Conclusion: "In essence, with high levels of cynicism and climbing rates of exhaustion, journalists are moving closer to reaching burnout as defined by the MBI-GS. And the protective buffer efficacy – a feeling of accomplishment – continues to dwindle." Link:
