I was wondering this as well.
I also think it's certainly possible for sensitive individuals to operate in their own kind of way in environments you wouldn't expect to find them depending on their skills and upbringing or what it is they enjoy or are used to (and can thus perhaps cope more effectively with). I don't know much about it. I tend to think of sensitive people as more creative than I am, though I think sensitivity is a decent way to describe me. (I'm an engineer and sometimes wish to quit and go back to delivering pizzas, which was much less stressful!).
Life is short. You can find a less stressful position, lower pay perhaps, and get more out of life. Generally the engineers I have worke with were more or less immune to stress - in some cases too narcissistic to feel stress from others. You have the cost of getting there paid in full. There is a position that you would enjoy more somewhere.
