Being an introvert is not easy especially when we’re living in a world where the media is putting extroverts on a podium. Business meetings, sales calls, meeting clients and networking events, that is the world where the extroverts shine.
The extroverts are the ones who have the energy to light up the room, the person who can talk and make friends with anyone. They love working in a team and get their energy from working and interacting with others. If you happen to be an extrovert, here are the best jobs for extroverts.
- You don’t have the energy to light up a room.
- You prefer to talk to as little people as possible.
- You prefer working alone.
- You get your energy by working with yourself.
Welcome to the world of introverts.
How we created the list of the best jobs for introverts
We want you to understand our methodology when choosing these careers.
We don’t want people commenting below saying things like:
“Web developers are not for introverts! You still have to work in a team and meet clients. This list is b***s***.”
“As a law clerk, I still have to talk with my lawyers. Definitely not on the introvert list.”
Here’s the real harsh truth.
There is NO career out there that allows you to work on an island and talk to no one. None. We researched 975 careers and found none.
Even when you’re a Geological Technician out in Antarctica doing research and collecting samples on icebergs, you still have to interact with another human being.
Now, the main question is “How much human interaction do you need to do on the job?”
There are 3 main criteria that we used when evaluating the best jobs for introverts.
- How much human interaction is required for the job?
- How important is working in a team/teamwork to perform the job?
- How important is it for you to coordinate or lead others in the job?
With that out of the way, here are 17 of the best jobs for introverts
