The 13 best jobs for people who hate people | Business News | News | The Independent

Not everybody is a people person.

If this sounds like you, your best approach for finding a job could be searching for work where people skills aren't all that necessary.

To find these jobs, we averaged data from the Occupational Information Network, or O*NET, a US Department of Labor database full of detailed information on 974 occupations.

O*NET rates each occupation on a scale from zero to 100 on how much a job requires workers to be in contact with others and how much a job requires workers to be pleasant with others, where a lower rating signals less-required sociability.

While people who hold these positions aren't necessarily standoffish, the following jobs got the lowest average score and require minimal good-natured interaction with others:

Sadly I am not likely to have an aptitude for any of these :low:

Apart from being an economist, I like the sound of all those jobs :)
When they do that careers test thing at school, they should factor in these things

I want to be an economist, my major was in economics. Too bad I will never land this type of job because they all require a PHD, which is something I will never attain. I'm stuck in marketing, super extroverted environment that freaks me out every day.

I would like farming or hunting/trapping. I did a lot of hunting in my youth. When I finally get my disability approved and I can get my own apartment again I would like a setup like I had in my old apartment. I had WAY more space than I needed so I started experimenting with different types of lighting and started growing my own peppers, tomatoes, and salad greens indoors. I would very much like to do that again as well as raising quail indoors. They're low maintainence animals and produce heavily.
