Would you class yourself as an introvert? If so, then you make think that there are some careers that are just not suited to your personality. However, there are many positive qualities of an introverted personality, such as a dedicated work ethic and a desire to see projects through to the end, which can make you perfect for a wide variety of roles. Below are 15 jobs ideally suited to introverts.
– Craftsman or fine artist
For those with the right skills, this is an ideal career. Artists and craftsmen have the creativity and talent to make a profit from selling their own designs or creations, such as in pottery, glassware, ceramics, textiles and paintings.
– Forensic science technician
This is the behind-the-scenes role in the laboratory rather than the more well-known role familiar from TV crime dramas where a technician attends the scene of the crime.
A photographer has a very special way of looking at the world and telling a story. Studio work is still very popular and may suit the introvert more than a field-based role such as a wedding photographer.
– Conservation scientist and forester
If you would like to spend some time in nature and helping to look after the planet, then this could be the ideal role for you.
Writing is the archetypal solitary job. Although writers usually have agents and sometimes give talks and take part in book signings, most of their work is carried out at home in a quiet space.

– Technical writer
A technical writer produces manuals and documents for products such as computer software or machinery.
Another graduate profession, accountants work mainly on their own analysing numbers and examining company records.
