Released today, Tom Rath and James K. Harter’s book Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements—a book on what makes people happy or unhappy—highlights some surprising statistics based on research done by Alan B. Krueger, Daniel Kahneman, David Schkade, Norbert Schwarz and Arthur A. Stone:

27.1% of women don’t like to be around their parents, as opposed to 7.2% of men

15.3% of women don’t like to be around their spouses, as opposed to 15.8% of men

17.7% of women don’t like to be around their children, as opposed to 10.2% of men
