I prefer physical labor.
I prefer physical labor only if my workmates are of similar physique to me.
I prefer mental labor only if my workmates are of similar mental capacity to me.
I prefer mental labor.
I do appreciate both.
Some kind of physical labour is better than others.
I need a balance between physical and intellectual. One gives my body a rest and the other gives my mind a rest. Both provide a workout in their own measure.
My job is definitely not physical. I wouldn't mind something with a more physical aspect to it, if it paid as well. Though when it comes to the physical I'm not going to win any awards there. Never did well in sports in school, etc. I do tend to have physical hobbies though. Spending a solid day labor digging up a hedge you want to get rid of is kind of like a vacation from a pure non-physical job during the week. Of course, I could probably hire some guys from the Home Depot parking lot to do the same work in a couple hours that I do in a day. That's OK though, getting the work done isn't really my goal.
