Social workers, police, teachers, journalists and other professions tend to socialize only with people within their profession because others don’t understand the unique pressures of their jobs, according to this article in Chicago Business.

For instance, social worker Dan Gasper found it easier and more exciting to hang around his mental health clients than “normal people.” He expanded his circle by socializing with his wife’s friends who were not social workers.

Q: Do you tend to make friends more easily with other social workers? Or do you have a more diverse social network?
