Working environments can be a mixed bag. There are the buttoned-up corporate offices where bringing your game-face is basically part of the uniform, while others positively encourage showing some humanity. And although the majority of us would probably like to keep a cool air of professional composure in front of our boss and other colleagues, there are the odd days when stress levels reach max and we can feel our emotions spill over.

But when things get a little too much, would you ever succumb to shedding a tear or two at your desk? Apparently many of us have no issue showing a little emotion. In fact, eight out of 10 of us have had a little cry in the workplace, according to a new study from job search company Monster. So are you totally fine with a little public blub or would you rather internally combust than show some 'weakness'?
