What Is An “Adrenaline Junkie?”

Have you ever been called an adrenaline junkie or adrenaline addict? The term “adrenaline junkie” was first popularly used in the 1991 movie Point Break in reference to people who favor dangerous activities for the adrenaline rush that accompanies them.

Adrenaline junkies thrive on high-risk situations and may be drawn to careers in entertainment, sports, military, protective services, healthcare, farming, fishing and forestry, where experiencing adrenaline is common.

Adrenaline pumping jobs come in all shapes and sizes. Any job where you are under constant pressure, facing danger, living life on the edge, or pushing your physical and mental comfort zones might qualify. Basically if you go to work each day and you plan to expect the unexpected, then you have a high intensity job.


What are the most adventurous careers?

1. Explosives Workers

For most of us, witnessing an explosion might be a once-in-a-lifetime event, but for explosives workers, it’s all part of the daily routine. These professionals handle, position and detonate explosives for purposes like engineering, construction, mining and oil and gas extraction. It’s their responsibility to safely and effectively demolish buildings and move rocks and earth so new structures can be built or so existing resources can be reached. Not only is an explosion itself enough to get your adrenaline going, but explosive workers have the stress of making sure the demolition goes safely.

2. Self-Enrichment Education Teachers

Do you fuel your adrenaline rush with activities like skydiving, whitewater rafting and rock climbing? Hundreds of thousands of extreme sports enthusiasts are making a living by teaching others “self-enrichment” activities like these – and so can you. It’s easy to be passionate about your job when adventure and fun are a big part of your work on a daily basis. They do, however, need a good deal of training and experience to do their job right. After all, part of the reason these sports are so exciting is because they are dangerous. As a guide or instructor, you’re responsible for the safety of the participants you teach.

3. Rodeo Clown

During bull riding events, rodeo clowns are the first defense against the bull after a cowboy gets bucked off. It’s the rodeo clown’s job to distract a 2,000 to 4,000 pound angry bull from going after the cowboy. That’s no easy job. It takes a daredevil.

Imagine a giant wild beast staring you down. Hoofs scrape on the ground and horns swing in your direction. It’s an angry bull. You better be ready to run, distract, and hide. It’s dangerous and these clowns often work in teams of 2 or 3. Distracting a bull takes talent. You need to be fast, agile, and lucky. Bulls might kick you, trample you under their huge weight, gore you with sharp horns, pick you up and toss you, or hit you with body or head. Scary. No matter how good a rodeo clown you are, eventually you will wake up in the hospital with broken bones, concussions, or dislocations. This job can certainly be fatal, but clowns do it for the rush.

4. Logger

Logging is dangerous work. Everyone in the forest products industry knows that, but being in and around logging all the time, it is sometimes easy to not keep this front of mind. While every job has its dangers, there is no question that logging is particularly dangerous; it entails being in remote areas, on varied terrain, felling trees that can be unpredictable and dangerous.   You have to deal with heavy machinery on a daily basis. As a result, most deaths occur due to equipment failure and trees falling on workers.

5. Crocodile Wrestler

Performance art can take you right into a crocodile’s jaw. Crocodile wrestlers risk their lives by putting their body parts between crocodile’s jaws, playing with their tails, and doing all sorts of crazy things. Remember that the crocodile doesn’t just lie there but actively moves and reacts, sometimes taking it too far.

6. War Correspondent

A war correspondent is a journalist who covers stories firsthand from a war zone. Their jobs bring war correspondents to the most conflict-ridden parts of the world. Once there, they attempt to get close enough to the action to provide written accounts, photos, or film footage. Getting the truth out to the world is as important as being a doctor, but it comes with a higher risk. The danger list contains kidnapping, torture, and death. When you are in the middle of the action, you are not marked as a journalist but as an enemy.
