Phony Professional Phriends

Last week we asked:

1. Have you ever had any phone professional phriends?

00.0% No, never

00.0% Yes, rarely

75.0% Yes, sometimes

25.0% Yes, often

2.  What gave them away?

> Insincerity

> They were always gushing when they wanted something, but they never reciprocated when I needed something. I think the term is "fair weather friend".

> The way they acted when they were around others toward me or other people differed greatly then with just me or others alone.

3. How many genuine, real professional friends do you have (like the two I described in the column)?

25.0% Two or less

50.0% Three to five

25.0% Over five

This week's quiz is here.

Want to get a jump on the surveys? Follow me on twitter, where they are posted early. You can do this here. (note: all respondents are confidential; the software is programmed in such a way that neither we nor anyone else can determine who responded)
