Happy on the Job

THESE JOBS, according to a recent article, have the highest job satisfaction:
Clergy
Firefighters
Physical therapists
Authors
Special education teachers
Teachers
Education administrators
Painters and sculptors
Psychologists
Security and financial services salespersons
Operating engineers
Office supervisors
While these jobs are tops for overall happiness:
Clergy
Firefighters
Transportation ticket and reservation agents
Housekeepers and butlers
Hardware/building supplies salespersons
Architects
Mechanics and repairers
Special education teachers
Actors and directors
Science technicians
These are quite curious lists! The prominent professions of law, medicine, or accounting don't make the cut. Happiness, is of course, an end it itself: you don't want to be happy in order to get something else. High income is merely a means to other ends, and it appears that it is not a means to happiness.
