      I work for freedom. I would suffer through the first half of the year to be able to take the other half of the year off and enjoying myself.

      If you don't enjoy it, sooner or later you'll be depressed and end off killing yourself because you won't want to deal with it ever again.

      If you love your job, you won't have to work a single day of your life. (It's more of a hobby...that you get paid for.)

      Who said anything about the low paying job being hard on a body? Low paying could be $10 an hour as a secretary. High paying job would be the one that would be hard on a body in my opinion.

      You can do extra work for extra money.. If rather spend my days in joy than in sadness and hating what I do for a living.. That would be a waste of my time, life, and pride..

    When the work you do is overpassed by the gold in your pocket, happiness is a lost cause. Money can't buy love.

    What if the high paying job is (for females) being a prostitute or stripper. Or an assassin,it has to be something you HATE, like maybe you got paid to eat spiders.

    If you chose the red section, you are an idiot. While it would be nice to have a job you enjoy, there are more things in life than your work. While being at work will be fun, the rest of your life will suffer because you will be broke. At least if you hate your job, and get paid well, you have enough cash to do all the things you want in your free time. Not to mention you could retire much earlier and not work at at all. Most people hate their jobs anyway, so its not like you wouldn't be part of the majority.

    I assumed it was VERY high salary.........if so I would just live through it (I mean, how bad can a very high salary job be?) and then I would retire/go to a job I love and then be successful. Or I'd retire and go to hawaii, bitchez :D

    Think about it. Your able to do the job and you get paid well. Who cares if you depressed within the time your working, when you get to go home and walk in the door to see your 18 inch flatscreen, outdoor swimming pool, complete with 6 whole bedrooms ;D. comon guys, maybe around 30 hours of unhappines a week while your at work but when you come home you'll see it really paid off

    have a high salary in the job that i hate. regardless of whether it being full time, i'll get all that ton of money i make with the high paying job, then quit before it drives me insane (so i'll have all that money saved up), then find a different job. have a new job that i love, AND have a bunch of money from the previous one. if i get another high paying job in a job i hate again, i can just keep repeating the process, jumping from job to job after i get a desired amount from it. i'll be less likely to get tired of multiple jobs that are different that way, even if i do hate them. i'll accumulate more money much faster overall. then i can do whatever i want with it and be happy
