"Is it okay to hang out with co-workers?"

Of course it's okay. Duh.

Coworkers yes... I think management is a little more hairy. I would advise against viewing your boss as a friend. My boss now is great and all, but there's just an awkwardness created when things are beyond sheer business.

I read some study a while back that said that people who went out drinking with their colleagues earned 10-15% more than people who didn't.

But is that because of the socializing, or because they were simply better at human relationships and the socializing (like the higher wages) merely reflects it?

Correlation does not necessarily imply cause.

I'm of the opinion that the kind of person who needs to ask dumbass questions like that, may be well be better off keeping a relatively low profile.  That way, he can be a polite neutral in most people's estimation, rather than a well-known dumbass.

Clarification, by "dumbass questions like that", I mean, dumbass questions like "is it okay to socialize with co-workers?"

I'd guess probably a bit of both.

You read some news reports about the study.  You didn't read the study.
