What are the most prestigious jobs?

I can tell you only what people claim are the most prestigious jobs.  Here are the top five:

1. Scientist (really?)
2. Doctor
3. Firefighter
4. Teacher (really?)
5. Military officer

I have yet to cash in on the groupies.  Here is the full list and story

Being a lawyer, I suspect, is more prestigious than most people are willing to admit.  The same is true for politician, athlete, or entertainer.  Clergy comes in number eight, but I suspect its real prestige is lower.  But I can believe what comes in last — real estate agent.
