The concept of burnout was introduced by, Bradley (1969) in a research paper on probation officers.

In the early 1980s, The topic of burnout became increasingly studied among human service professionals (Cherniss, 1980). Furthermore, it is estimated that 2,500 papers have been published on job burnout over a 20-year period, primarily among human service professionals (Schulz,Greenley, & Brown, 1995).

Burnout is characterized by feeling of intense fatigue, a sense of isolation and loss of control, as well as a feeling of accomplishing nothing at work.

Since both mentioned brands of soft drink are popular throughout the globe as well as Pakistan hence this study was conducted to see which brand does Pakistanis prefer and what are the attributes that makes their brand a better one than the other.
