    Would you rather have a job that is well paid, but with a high amount of stress and where you end up taking your work home each night,

    or a job which is not that well paid, but means you can leave your work at work and has little stress??

    There are plenty of jobs which exist which have either both, or neither, of these conditions.

    But to answer your question - I think I'd prefer a low-stress job. The money is not worth it if the job is damaging my health.

    Yeah, or you can be a teacher like me. Low pay and a stratospheric amount of stress. Wooo.
    If only any job can really be simplified in the way you're suggesting.

    I'd rather go into a job that's low pay, and low stress, than high pay and high stress.

    (As it happens, I'm planning on being a Stage Manager, which is low pay and high stress. But oh well, I enjoy it.)

    most highly paid job roles have a high stress element that is why they get paid more and of cause there is the qualifications side as well

    but for me it will be more likely a High Pay and High Stress

    Low stress. I'm anxiety prone anyway, I'd be a nervous wreck with a high stress job. I'd like enough to live on, I'm not bothered about being wealthy.
