What is the most stressful job in the world?

Okay this is in my opinion, after a glass of late morning wine whilst waiting for my flight onto my next adventure, but air traffic controller must rank one of the highest there is.  Watching the literally hundreds of flights landing, taking off and criss-crossing each other on the numerous runways

I am not sure what qualifications you need to become one, so whilst I have a bit of time on my hands, decided to tap into the free airport wifi and do a bit of research.

“A candidate must have either 3 years of progressively responsible work experience, a bachelors degree, a combination of postsecondary education and work experience or obtain a degree through an Aviation Administration.”

I would imagine a thorough test of stress levels and psychiatric assessment would also be required.  Regardless – my hat goes off to them.
