We get it ….. dealing with mankind isn’t the easiest of processes on most days of the year, especially with social media constantly telling us what Tom, Dick and Harry are up to 24×7. But, when thinking about the career path you want to go down, it’s always important to consider more than just educational experience, salary, job outlook etc. It’s imperative to think about whether the job you’re applying for fits your personality well. How much of an introvert or extrovert you are can make a big difference in the kind of jobs that suit you and also the kind of job that you will excel at.

Does the thought of making a presentation in front of twenty different people frighten you? Or does the thought of dealing with people on a day-to-day basis annoy/exhaust you? If you answered yes to the above, you might not exactly be what they call a ‘people person’. But, fret not, because we aren’t all gregarious, outgoing beings with overtly incredible social skills.


Some would argue that the extroverted kind have a plethora of job options to choose from such as management, sales, mediation, law etc. amongst others that require constant interaction with others, while introverts have a meagre number of opportunities. We did some digging for you to find some the highest paying jobs for introverts – and mind you, some of them pay so much more than typical ‘extroverted jobs’! So, if you are someone that can’t be bothered with people and interaction with a living being capable of communication, here are 10 jobs that are best suited for you. Just promise us you don’t end up being a care worker.
