Crying on the job is acceptable, according to 44 percent of CFOs surveyed by Accountemps.

A survey the accounting firm conducted shows how emotions are perceived in the workplace.

"We're all human, and sometimes emotions can get the best of us," said Michael Steinitz, executive director of Accountemps, in a statement. "Workplace challenges are inevitable, but how you respond and move forward can demonstrate your professionalism, resilience and emotional intelligence."

More than four in 10 workers, 45%, have admitted to crying at work, and 52 percent have admitted to losing their tempers in the workplace.
