Less than 1 in 2 men know what their partner’s job entails

...and over a quarter of women do not know what their partner’s job entails
  • Three in ten lawyers admitted to revealing sensitive information to their partners
  • One in ten doctors admitted to revealing more details about their work than they should
  • 2% of those surveyed have no idea at all what their partners job even is
  • 12% of people, who are not currently in a relationship, had no idea what their previous partners occupation was
The research commissioned to coincide with the DVD release of spy series Covert Affairs: Series 1 out June 18, Universal Playback surveyed over 8,000 men and women about how well they know their current, or most recent, partners occupation.

The comprehensive survey discovered that 2% of those surveyed had no idea what their partners occupation even was. 27% of women could not describe what their partner’s job entails, while a staggering 46% of men could not provide details on what their partner’s job entails.

The anonymous survey revealed that lawyers were shown to be the most indiscreet professionals when it comes to sensitive information, revealing more information to their partners than they should. Doctors were shown to be the second most indiscreet profession also revealing personal details of their work.

14% of men never talk to their partners about work as they simply do not like talking about their work (after hours), while just 8% of women do not talk to their partners about work for this reason.

The survey revealed that police officers were the least likely to reveal more details than they should about of their work (1%).

The survey revealed the main reason women did not talk to their partners about work was that their partners would not listen to them when they talked about work (16%) while just 6% of men did not talk to their partners about work for this reason.

The survey was commissioned by Universal Playback to coincide with the DVD release of Covert Affairs: Series 1 out on June 18. Covert Affairs: Series 1 is also available for legal download and via video-on demand on 18 June

The survey was carried out from Friday 11 June to Monday 18 June with 8,000 participants by market researchers www.visioncritical.com

Being a federal agent isn’t easy as Annie Walker (Perabo) experiences at her first interview at the CIA. Wired up to a polygraph machine Annie has to answer probing questions from a future co-worker who clearly doesn’t think she’s up for the challenge. Using her wit and intelligence Annie manages to avoid all stages of embarrassment and impresses her new colleague with some tactful answers, all the while beaming with confidence.

Annie is thrust into the inner sanctum of the agency when she is unexpectedly promoted to field operative and is propelled into a shadowy world full of cons, killers and international crime rings when she begins working on a case lead by Arthur Campbell (Gallagher), who heads up the agencies most secretive department.
