We all think we have stressful jobs — and chances are we do. But who has the most stressful jobs? To answer that question, the website CareerCast.com did a little study. The website considered 11 different stress factors — including difficult-to-meet-deadlines, imminent danger, physical demands — to see which jobs led to the most stress.

The study gave jobs stress scores, as well as showing the median income. While some are easily understandable as stress-inducers — firefighter — others take a little more consideration but totally make sense once you mull for a minute. For example, taxi driver.
