I was recently musing the idea that there seems to be quite a bit of overlap between jobs/careers that are stereotypically considered "mundane", "boring", "dull" and "soul-crushing" and the sorts of jobs usually considered appealng to SJs due to their structured, methodical and steady nature, which makes them, at least theoretically, well-suited for said tasks.
However, these jobs are also pretty much considered synonymous with disillusionment and drudgery and giving up on your dreams, like in this comic by Chris Guillebeau.
My questions, then, are, for the SJs: do you find fulfillment on those jobs, or do you simply feel a duty to "keep on trucking"? Does it depend on particular aspects of the job? Do you feel those jobs are represented unfairly in media such as Guillebeau's comic? Do you, indeed, thrive in those environments? Are they close to what you consider your "dream job"?
Thank you in advance.
