It really is true: 7% of all American adults who drink milk believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows.
According to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy, 16.4 million milk-drinking adults are of that belief.
At work, bear that in mind: perhaps 7% of your colleagues, customers and even managers view and understand the world and how it works very differently than you do. Some have views that are truly odd.
And, too, keep your presumptions limited, your expectations on the lower side, and your communications as clear as possible.
By the way, that same survey showed that 20% of Americans who eat hamburgers believe hamburgers are made of ham. No one, apparently, asked what color pig the ham came from.
