17 Best Careers for Introverts on LinkedIn

Hello you!  Ever wondered what the best careers for introverts should be?  Is there such a thing?  Did you know that introverts have the potential to earn 6 figures a year?

Before I go into this we first need to acknowledge that there are two personality types in the world (generally speaking) the first is the introvert and the other is an extrovert.

These both types depends on the human personality. The terms were popularized by Carl Jung and it is a part of human psychology.


Introverts are the people that react in a very different way to some situations or how they face some difficulty. When they are in this situation the try to put there falling and energy inside them.

Rather than expose it outside. These people don’t expose their feelings and how they face their problems. People with this type of personality usually love to live alone or be a loner. But they work from their own minds rather than disclosure with other people.

These people prefer to keep their issue and problems with themselves. There are a few common factors found in an introvert’s personality they are as follows:

  1. They are found to be the most self-absorbed people, they usually don’t talk too much with other people, and they love to live alone.
  2. People usually think that these types of people are loners but this is not true they have built their own world and they love to live in it and they are satisfied.
  3. They usually do not show off their skills and abilities they keep it to themselves.
  4. You cannot help or advise these types of people because what they think is right and what they are doing is right.
  5. They aren’t concerned with what others will tell them. It’s not a mental disorder or personality disorder they usually are perfect people. Only they live their life inside rather outside.

Now I will briefly describe the extroverts.


The extrovert personality is just the opposite of introverts. When they usually stuck on a problem or in a critical situation, they would prefer to expose it outside rather keep it inside.

These personality types are controlled by other people rather than themselves. These people like to discuss their issues and problems with other people.

Extroverts are not loner type of people they love to mix with other people and usually have more friends and other relations. They feel very comfortable switching jobs or their workplace.

Often, they love to go in groups for a walk or to eat and meet new people and they do not have any issues to do any kind of work. These are the best people for asking and advice for yourself and they love to work in groups.
