    All those jobs require with dealing with people or trying to find a solution with a problem. Of course they are going to cause a form of depression, especially if your dealing with people lives or interacting with them. Im surprised they didnt include psychologist, I would be depress if I had to hear a bunch of depressing stories after awhile and trying to help them.

    How does a maintenance worker deal with people everyday any more so than any other job? And finding solutions to a problem on a job well that's unheard of... Also psychologists are taught to listen to clients without getting attached. Their judgments are usually based on logic and cognitive skills not emotion.

    Maintenance worker is fixing a problem which involves finding a solution to a problem. I didnt state that a maintenance worker dealt with people everyday, I just did a quick synopsis of what all those jobs had in common. I dont know anything about psychology, I was just using my own personal view on why I thought it might be depressing icon_razz.gif.

    I must admit my job is severely depressing.

    There's nine of us that work with six mentally retarded and autistic boys.

    I think they all lead to depression because they are jobs that don't offer a lot of satisfaction or reward. You can put in loads of effort and energy and care, and still have not much to show for it (or not be recognized for what little you have accomplished).

    What job doesn't have it's downers? I see it it this way, if you don't find something that makes the day bright your going to get depressed regardless. Studies/Polls and such show that the society we live in overworks the working class and doesn't allow much room for relaxation/rest. So your going to have to find that golden lining in each day to keep yourself going.

    Besides rich people and perhaps few retired a majority of people don't have enough time to enjoy themselves. Before anyone says it, two days a week off aren't really quite what I had in mind either.

    Maintenance workers do hard work for low pay with little chance of advancement. Imagine looking forward to doing that for the next thirty or forty years. Plus, ignorant people look down on them and don't show them an appropriate amount of respect. And, as soon as they fix something or clean something someone comes along and messes it up again.

    There's more, though. Those boys are so lucky to have you.

    Those jobs are only stressful and depressing if you actually care about what you are doing

    cold saidpretty sure lawyer should appear somewhere on that list...


    yeah... I was wondering the same thing. Every lawyer/judge I know of comes across as being unhappy, but I'm not sure if it's 'them' as people, or a product of the adversarial nature of the job.

    My dad dated a psychiatrist for a while.

    She ended up in a psychosis.

    Seems like alot of those jobs are unappreciated jobs. And some of that didn't seem horribly accurate either. I know construction workers that get paid pretty well, and jobs like a server or administrative assistant type jobs seem more like college student jobs. If you're working at that level as a career, you should be depressed.

    Yeah, it isn't specific enough to be valid. It seems to just grab some random jobs and says why
