This is list isn't here to tell you that the most stressful jobs are the worst jobs to have. It's actually the opposite if you are the kind of person that thrives on pressure and is willing to put yourself in those stressful situations.

Bottom line is someone needs to do these jobs and if you know someone who is in a high stress job, buy them a cookie or do something for them. They're taking the heat so you don't have to.
