Unlike air traffic controllers, pilots actually HAVE to stay awake when they have your life . . . and their own life . . . in their hands.  And going without a nap like that is really stressful.

The website CareerCast.com just put out its annual report on the top 10 most and least stressful jobs of the year . . . and commercial airline pilot was named the number one most stressful job.

In general, the jobs on the high stress list are ones that are dangerous, intense, filled with crisis situations, high-pressure, or some combination of those.  The low stress jobs are ones that have very little danger and minimal physical demand.

The least stressful career of 2011 is . . . audiologist.  If you don’t know, that’s someone who diagnoses and treats hearing disorders.

The top 10 least stressful jobs are:  Audiologist . . . dietitian . . . software engineer . . . computer programmer . . . dental hygienist . . . speech pathologist . . . philosopher (???) . . . mathematician . . . occupational therapist . . . and chiropractor.
