"You wouldn't think that a job with social right in the name is suited to introverts, but it's a great fit," says Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast. "While in-person interaction may not be an introvert's cup of tea, technological outlets allow an introvert to maintain person-to-person communication electronically without the stresses of actual conversation."

Somehow, many introverts overcome their fears just long enough to land a new job. But for introverts already in the workplace, they prefer the security of having a job where the routine is clear and interaction with others is either non-existent or kept to a minimum is critical.

Shy people often are attracted to positions that limit their exposure to new people, so they're typically found in jobs with functions that tend to be focused around a limited group of people. For them, having a stable, quiet career often outweighs the need for advancement. Introverts often don't seek promotions that would require travel or meeting with new people. Their fears may be holding them back even when a new job would be a change to advance their skills and knowledge.
