Maybe the correct response is "Tech Writers who have time to answer surveys like this have low-stress jobs."
 
Then there's the rest of us!

every time my blood pressure starts to skyrocket....I just yell at some
engineers....:-)

Subject: #5 on the list of Low Stress Jobs

Over on CNN today they had a list of 10 low stress jobs.  Since I'm
always looking for ways to cut my stress levels, I clicked through to
read the story.  Imagine my surprise when Number 4 is 'software
developer', and number 5 is 'technical writer' and number 8 is
'software architect.'  I always thought that deadline pressures
equalled stress.  But what do I know?

"% who say their job is low stress: 56.4%
The proliferation of technical products in all parts of our lives,
from iPods and HDTVs to medical devices and high-tech manufacturing
equipment, means there is huge demand for those who can translate tech
talk into understandable language. Though tech writers have deadline
pressures, they can work fairly independently, have flexible hours and
can often work from home."
