15 high-paying jobs for people who don't like stress

Think there's no such thing as a high-paying, low-stress job? Think again. Lots of jobs have that perfect balance of good pay and low stress. And many of them don't even require a college degree.


By Rachel Gillett and Rachel Premack, Business Insider

Think there's no such thing as a high-paying, low-stress job? Think again. It turns out there are plenty.

To find jobs with that perfect combination of high pay and low stress, we combed through the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a US Department of Labor database that compiles detailed information on hundreds of jobs and looked at salary data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics website.

O*NET rates the "stress tolerance" for each job on a scale from zero to 100, where a lower rating signals less stress. (Note: We are not saying these jobs are "stress-free" - they just tend to rate lower than other professions.)

To rate each job, O*NET looks at how frequently workers must accept criticism and deal effectively with high stress at work.

Click through to see 15 jobs that pay more than $60,000 a year, on average, and earned a stress tolerance rating of 65 or lower, in order from highest to lowest stress score.
