As you can see, most of these top jobs for introverts are in the math and science fields. But what if you’re more interested in other fields – the arts, history, business, etc? Here are some great jobs available in other areas, along with links to more information on the JobMonkey site:

  • Archaeologist: Working as an archaeologist allows you to combine history with a bit of science. In this field, you could work in any position from recovery to analysis, and while you will work on a team, you don’t have to deal in sales, speak with customers, or do other activities that might be uncomfortable to you as an introvert.
  • Photography: If you find a photography job, you get to be behind the camera instead of in front of it, which is great for introverts. You can work in many different kinds of photography, including portraits, landscape, architecture, wedding or events, and advertising.
  • Aviation: Becoming a flight attendant requires being a people person, but this isn’t the only job available in the aviation field. In fact, some types of aviation jobs even allow you to earn a six-figure salary, and they’re perfect for introverts.
