If You Buckle Under Stress, Avoid These 10 Jobs

If you’re not into high stakes situations with urgent deadlines -- or life-and-death thrown in your way -- steer clear of these 10 jobs that were rated as the highest stress jobs in the United States using a “stress tolerance” score between 1 and 100 from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a U.S. Department of Labor database, reports Business Insider.

The stress tolerance score is a measure of the level of criticism a worker must endure on the job and how effectively a worker must deal with stress. (A score of 100 is the highest need for stress tolerance.)

Interestingly enough, six out of the 10 jobs are in medicine and health care.
