I did my masters in arts with a major in International Public Relations, and right after finishing my degree, I started working with a PR agency, servicing clients across various sectors. However, after six months of doing that, I was quite unhappy and quit my job only to join another agency with clients from different sectors, thinking I would be happier there.
It turned out that wasn’t the case, but I stuck around for longer, with the hope that it would eventually get better. It took me five years of not having any job satisfaction to realize that this profession wasn’t conducive to my personality type! Now only if I had taken a personality test or advice from someone I could save myself from 5 years of being miserable in jobs I didn’t enjoy.
Personality types explain why some people do better at some jobs while others do not so much. Here I will go through some of the ideal career choices for people with an introverted personalities.
Introverts are most comfortable in their own company or small/intimate groups at most. They thrive in a quiet environment with minimal interaction with people, especially those unfamiliar with. They are sensitive and reserved.

They work behind the scenes of every legal case, assist attorneys in doing the research, filing legal documents, attending hearings, trials and depositions. Although they work alongside lawyers, most part of their work requires them to work on their own.
