@aurum.  I don't like to speak much, I will be standing in a corner in public gathering. i will often say good morning in such a low voice that only i hear,i think. Prefer noding my head instead as Hi.

@Jhonny

You're not an introvert. Or at the very least, this personality that you currently think is you is not who you really are.

Can you remember any brief moments where maybe you were more extroverted? What did they look like and feel like?

@Jhonny There is a misconception about introverts that then becomes a limiting belief.

Introverts are very much capable of being very social and even in the center of attention and actually enjoy it, but the thing is, they just need alone time to recharge, time which you would probably have given most jobs. You can be a very good salesman or public speaker even if you are an introvert. Actually, some of the best public speakers are introverts.

Martin Luther King Jr. was an introvert and he was always in the center of attention, giving speeches and interacting a lot with other people.

@Jhonny As an introvert myself, I like jobs which leave space for your own initiative. Not just listening to or cooperating with other people but thinking for yourself and making your own decisions. Also it should be flexible and give you alone time to think and reflect. I don't think that there has to be a conflict in any job. You just have to execute the job in a way that incorporates your natural abilities.

For me being an introvert mostly means avoiding negative influences from people. If I have to pretend then it's draining to be around people. Of course the pretending is up to me to a degree.

You want a job that exposes you to lots of people in short bursts, then you can slowly get over the introversion (which is not necessarily an issue, it's only an issue if it bothers you)

Running away forever is another method but are you really asking us for running away advice?

I agree with Aurum and Dan Arnautu, don't limit yourself in the name of being an introvert. Sometimes its just self esteem issues (as it is in my case for instance) I am naturally an introvert as you might call it simply because I like being by myself more, but honestly I do not have a problem with socialising, its about the company and the environment I am in. I can't stand shallow and futile conversations, but if i have decent company I'm good. so don't limit yourself with the tag of being an introvert. People like Hitler and Gandhi were introverts too btw. 

But in case if you by any means want to keep yourself to yourself and keep your socialising minimal, I'd suggest psychotherapy or a writer or computer work or blogging, but i think finding work on the basis of your personality trait solely won't give you a strong and juicy enough passion cause you will be motivated by more like a limiting belief
