I have come to view “studies” that involve purely surveys of people’s opinions with a great deal of suspicion. Even those that purport to use experiments and trials ought to explain the basic premises that led to those experiments, and we as receivers of such information need to discern whether or not the bases upon which those experiments were conducted and the methods employed were reliable and valid. Examine everything from this standpoint, and you will be moving forward in your career and in your life by leaps and bounds.
Yes, consult a multitude of counsellors. But do your own thinking for yourself.
