Jobs apart from what you do now that you would find either good, enlightening, interesting. Or bad, stressful, boring, intimidating.Purely hypothetical of course.

The most rewarding? Probably teaching. Opening a young mind to knowledge is a helluva awesome job.

The most stressful? Probably teaching. Attempting to open 20–30 squirrely, recess-and-playtime-wanting young minds to knowledge has got to be extremely stressful

I would love to be the Captain of a research vessel for kids! The most stressful would be a Chip N’ Dale Dancer!! lol!

I guess I’d have to answer “God” for both responses.

Thank That that it’s a Social Q where I might be able to get away with that without moderator damnation.

@Cruiser Yes, it would be trying to wear a thong while duded up like this every night that would be the killer, I’d reckon.

@aprilsimnel Actually a thong would be all you would want to wear as those costumes look like they would be awfully hot inside them! :))

I think I picked the most stressful one to study out of the choices I was contemplating some few years back, but originally I wanted to be a mortician and run my own funeral parlour. Thing is I’m not really business oriented and I’d probably fail and go bankrupt, that’s if I didn’t become a coke head before.
I also don’t have much of a sense of compassion for the more delicate part of this profession, and I realized that what interested me were all the technical issues like embalming, so here I am in the medical field now, or, at least, trying, anyways.

But for a day I’d run the funeral parlour if I could, and see if I’ live a decent posh life with a Porsche and noon meetings with dudes wearing stovepipe hats wanting to sell me coffin models and funky urns.

That, or a jungle explorer. I always wanted to do that.

I would like to be a high school science teacher. I did a year of that and came to really appreciate my students and enjoyed seeing them progress.

As for a stressful job, I would hate to be a Arizona State Policeman. I don’t think that I could spend a week profiling and making up reasons to investigate people that look Mexican. In the mean time I would still be expected to do the regular job of protecting the people of my state.

I’ve always fancied being a turkey inseminator. Most stressful for me would be a bull semen extractor.

I’d work in a book store- not owned by a huge chain for the good, and sales of any kind would be too stressful.

Most rewarding – teaching arts and crafts to young children
most stressful – teaching sky diving
