Are you an Internal Auditor at home as well?

Is your career, as an internal auditor, affecting your lifestyle and relationship with others?

It is a fact that our careers affect our lifestyle in one way or another, whether we intend this or not.For example, as an internal auditor, do you find yourself :

- Dealing with others with skepticism without giving them the benefit of the doubt?
- Paying too much attention to details at home? This may not keep your spouse or other family members happy!
- Trying to maintain independence in your relationships with family members and friends when sometimes you have to take sides and be biased?
- Questioning if your actions may result in a conflict of interest all the time?

On the positive side,do you think that internal audit made you :

- A more effective communicator

- Vigilant. You pay more attention to your surroundings
- Better understand risks and opportunities

Please share your thoughts and experience.
