It has been statistically proven that Swedish people complain more at work about their colleagues than any other nation in Europe.

Swedes are far less tolerant and get stressed about what their work mates do more than what their work is like, explained Wednesday's SvD.

"Other European nations might look at work purely as a means to an end, whereas Swedes take their work very seriously", said Per Sunnemark at Monster Jobline Recruitment agency.

It appears that Swedes cannot cope with hierarchy because in their view "everyone's equal". The Spanish don't like to work over-time and the Italians get stressed about daily tasks.

Meanwhile, the Norwegians are apparently just "generally happy" with most work related issues.
