It’s no hidden fact that there are people who like to be left alone. People, who prefer minimum personal interaction! Now we often assume that it must be difficult for introverts to find a satisfying career, but that assumption is not entirely true. There are many career options for you lone wolves, options that capitalize on the strengths of introverted personalities.
Social Media Managers And Writers

There is a strange stereotype that writers and other creative artists are often the lone wolves. They are more often than not introverts and extremely private. Well, that’s not true. But I think I know where that stereotype comes from. It stems in the fact that writing, managing social media, and other such creative tasks involve minimum social interaction. All one needs to do is think, think a lot, and come up with great ideas. As a social media manager or a writer, you can spend most of your time alone and hence allow the introvert inside you the space it demands. It is one of the most ideal professions for an introvert not just because it lets you introvert around but also because an introverted people are often talented writers. Other creative professions like Designing, editing, crafting, and photography are good to go too!
Being a researcher of any kind is very esteemed position. It is also a very broad category to deal with because you can practically be a researcher in any given industry. But irrespective of the industry you choose, the main work as a researcher you will be doing is “researching” 😛
And researching mostly means working alone! At best, you will have to do written communication through emails and reports. As a researcher, you will be expected to be very patient, diligent, prudent, analytic, and so on. Somehow, hat sounds like an introvert friend I know! Other similar professions like IT programmer, Analyst etc are just as good an option!

This is one of the best and most interesting professions for an introvert to take on. Many believe that counseling or therapy is not the right job for an introvert because “introverts are not good with conversations”. But they are highly mistaken. Introverts are god-gifted listeners and are at their best in a one on one conversation. Many of the typical introverted personality skills like empathy, deep-thinking, patience come handy in this particular profession.
Animal Care Or Trainer
Introverts are particularly good with animals and the nature. Since, they are not a fan of having people around them, introverts will any day be happy to have innocent animals surround them. So making career in the animal care industry could be a vice choice as an introvert. One of the interesting professions in this category is a “Dog Trainer”. There are institutes that make you a certified dog trainer. Once you are one, you can go on and train pet dogs to earn your daily bread. Unlike popular opinion, dog training actually improves the lifestyle of both the pupper and the adoptive parents. As a professional in animal care industry, you have minimum to no interaction with the humans. Sounds attractive now, don’t it?
By suggesting these options, I have no intention to create any stereotype. This list is just to help you find a career that compliments your personality! But at the same time, remember that there is no “perfect job for introverts” even if the title says so. A perfect job is the one that keeps you happy and pays your bills. Period.
