200 Best Jobs for IntrovertsBook - 2008
Introverts prefer autonomy and quiet in their work and draw their energy from within. In this useful book, the authors help introverts, about 40 percent of the population, make the best career match for their strengths in just two steps: (1) Review best jobs lists to compare careers and to find those that suit them best. (2) Learn more about the careers of interest in detailed job descriptions.
In more than 75 'best jobs' lists, the careers for introverts are ranked by pay, growth, openings, interests, education, self-employment, part-time work, gender, age, and more. Plus, introverts learn the best jobs ranked by levels of quiet, solitary work, contact with others, autonomy, and direct contact with the public. The 200 job descriptions give details on earnings, growth, openings, responsibilities, rating on level of solitary work, rating on level of contact with others, skills needed, education and training required, related knowledge and courses, interest area, related jobs, and work environment. A special overview reveals why understanding your introversion can be useful in choosing an occupation and discusses the strengths that introverts bring to their careers and to business. The authors review how introversion relates to occupational theories behind the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality test and the 'Holland codes' used widely in career exploration.
