Harvard Study Identifies Jobs Types That Are Deemed Unhappiest
A Harvard study has revealed that jobs that require little human interaction and don’t offer opportunities to build meaningful relationships with co-workers are considered to be the unhappiest. It also stated that the key to happiness is positive relationships and not money or health.
An 85-year-old study conducted by Harvard researched that involves health data from over 700 participants globally since 1938. It was found that the unhappiest jobs are the ones that require little human interaction and don’t offer opportunities to build meaningful relationships with co-workers.
According to Robert Waldinger, MD, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, “It’s a critical social need that should be met in all aspects of our lives. Plus, if you are more connected to people, you feel more satisfied with your job, and do better work.”
