Jobs For Introverts: 395 Careers Based On Your Personality Type

Jobs for Introverts

Would you consider yourself an introvert?

I am, and I have grown to appreciate my introverted nature more and more over the years. Even though Western culture tends to celebrate extraverts and reward many extraverted behaviors, I've learned that introverts possess strengths that are equally valuable and important.

Since introverts make up about a third of the population, it's important for everyone to understand their traits and behaviors and recognize how to benefit from what introverts have to offer in both personal and professional settings.

If you aren't sure whether or not you're an introvert, I suggest you take a Myers-Briggs assessment or similar personality test to find out. Introversion and extraversion exist on a continuum, so you likely possess some of both traits with a dominance in one or the other. Here's a good free test you can complete in about 15 minutes.

Why is it important to know whether or not you're an introvert? Aside from having a better understanding of yourself and how you relate to other people, knowing this can help you determine a career that best suits your personality. Most workplace cultures and environments are strongly geared towards extroverted personalities. So it's up to introverts to understand themselves and seek out careers where they can thrive and feel fulfilled.

Here are 395 jobs for introverts based on the eight introverted personality types:
