Many people believe introverts are just shy or antisocial. But there is much more to introversion. Introverted people actually get energy from being alone. Some introverts describe being alone as feeling like an actual place they go. When introverts are alone, they spend a lot of time on introspection, and on analyzing the stimuli to which they were exposed during the day. Being alone is actually a rich and uplifting experience for introverts. On the reverse end of things, being around a lot of people drains introverts of energy. Being in crowded or chaotic places can be overwhelming for introverts because they struggle to take in and dissect a lot of information at once—their circuit overloads. Introverts don’t necessarily dislike people so much as people just exhaust them. That’s something to think about if you’re an introvert trying to choose a profession. Here are the best and worst jobs for introverts.
Best: Online business owner
If you have an online business—let’s say on Ebay or Etsy—you’ll never have to interact with customers in person. You can simply enjoy making your product in the privacy of your home and filling customer orders.
