The job you love but doesn't pay well or the job that pays well but you hate?

*EDIT

Reason I ask is because I've been thinking about trying out night shift security guard work. I hear those guys have nothing but down time when they're mostly left to their own devices. I have a lot of hobbies and if I could get paid to indulge in them, that sounds like a dream gig... Of course, my income would take a hit but my current job is so-so.

It's not even a contest. Low-paying job you love.

The third option you didn't include

Some seem to disagree.

To what extent to you hate/love either job? How high/low paying are they?

Money itself isn't a goal, but money is the key to many doors.

Well, I won't really love it if I'm struggling to pay for food and rent, and have to constantly worry whether I can make ends meet.



If you cant make a living with the "low-paying job you love", then the other should be better.
If you have a "high-paying job you hate", you probably will have bad performance as you are not even remotely motivated doing good work. If you do so you probably will not have the job for an long time unless your boss does not care about your performance.
On the other hand: Could you really HATE(!) a job which is really good paid? Sounds a bit difficult. Even if you dont like your tasks, the money should make you feel ok-ish about it ... of course unless you have plenty of it below your pillow^^

I prefer a "medium-paying job you quite like" :) (to be realistic) or (to be not as realistiv) a "high-paying job you love".
I guess only few people have the latter one.

I like my job pretty much but the payment is unfortunately below-average. Not bad, but only ok-ish. As I live alone its OK, but I could not feed a family with it alone.



The low paying job you love. Being poor is (probably) better than killing yourself due to depression.

Not much of a question at that point.
