Calls with colleagues.

The study, which drew in 163 the person's answers from the five medical institutes in Sydney, are also taken advantage of the reality of working at home for researchers. The most frequently cited work area was the kitchen or dining table, mentioned by 44 percent of scientists, while 28 percent worked from their own office and 10 percent shared an office.

Surprisingly, 3 percent of respondents worked. From the bathroom during the lock. "Someone suggested that, perhaps, the bathroom had the best wireless Internet connection," Thamrin said.

The study also analyzed other problems caused by working from home. 42 percent, they said that the calls had been interrupted by the children of colleagues, and a respondent was interrupted by a sleepwalker, "although it is not clear if this was during a day nap or a night gathering," says the document.
