      If you have lots of money but your job sucks, what's the point? Flip Side: If you do something you love, its not about the money. You're paid with the enjoyment. Plus people are generally more successful, and more likely to advance their career, if they enjoy their field.

      God point. I think many people don't properly think over what "hate" means here and which jobs they would actually hate performing. It could very well include frequently confronting your phobias or do something you're ethically against (which I think the assassin option would fall under for most). Or it could be something you don't properly manage, even with practise, which would really frustrate you

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

    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.

      As long as I have enough money for food I won't suffer by far as much as if I did something I really hate for several hours a week. I don't think hating your job is equivalent to just finding it a bit boring. I couldn't manage to work in the woods at summer if it meant the ants would be crawling all around me (i have phobia against them) and I'd actually rather kill myself than work as an assassin where I kill multiple, sometimes innocent people for money

    I'm guessing that "Low salary" still means enough to get by, just not as comfortably. 'Cause if it's not, it's really not even a question. You do what you've got to do. But if I can get by, even if I've gotta sacrifice some comfort, I'd rather be happy.
