Politics held the 13th spot on this list. However, only one percent of the participants (both male and female) who took part in the study were from this field. That’s quite surprising, isn’t it? The other professions that were present at the bottom of this list were from the fields of agriculture, legal sector, arts, and entertainment.

4. Marketing, social work, hospitality, and others

Setting your own venture requires you to step out of your comfort zone, meet new people and work day in and day out.

Entrepreneurship turned out to be the fourth most popular profession on this list among the Ashley Madison users.
