Some of the best examples of good jobs for introverts include mechanical or technical jobs where the work is done in the field, such as surveyors, inspectors, installers, repair and maintenance personnel, and skilled trades. Those who work in offices will likely have to interact more with people than site or field workers, but there are still many good job options for introverts.
Examples include financial/budget analysis, research and data analysis, software development, web design/programming, IT systems analyst, engineering technician, content writer, editor, legal analyst/assistant and hospital technician. Many freelance and creative jobs are also good for introverts.
Keep in mind that being introverted is not a destiny, confining you to a solitary worklife. Introversion and extroversion refer to what energizes and motivates you. Introverts tend to feel drained when interacting with too many people in the workplace, but are energized by accomplishing things alone, or surrounded by just a few trusted peers. Extroverts are the opposite: they are energized by working around people constantly, but feel tapped out working alone. Both are needed to get the big jobs done.
