A survey by business psychologists finds that the most stressful jobs are held by those who deal directly with the public.

The BBC reports that the survey of 25 000 British workers in 26 jobs finds that employees who are in contact with the public were more likely to suffer from stress than their bosses.

According to the BBC, paramedics had the most stressful jobs among those surveyed, followed by teachers and social workers.

Bosses were more likely to enjoy good health and job satisfaction and experience less stress. According to the survey, business managers, who often don't have direct contact with the public, were least likely to suffer from stress. – (HealthDayNews)
