Dear native spaekers,
In the follwoing sentence:
I think you would be happier in another job.
Why we should say "would" and not "are" or "will"?
In most passages or films I have come across with this type of structure and I would be grateful if you provide me with a clear explanation.

I agree with Bill, but would just like to add that 'I think you will be happier in another job' can also mean that he's already got a new job but hasn't started it yet.
