Introverts are typically quieter and more reserved than extroverts. They tend to be more focused on internal thoughts and feelings, and get energy from being alone. They're also better suited to some jobs than others, according to a new report from job search site

Susan Cain, author of “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking,” says introverts can be very social, but because they tend to reach equilibrium in quieter, lower-key environments, professions like astronomer and film editor are a better fit for them. 

“They typically prefer jobs that offer some autonomy, privacy, focus, and the ability to work in-depth on interesting projects," Cain says. "Many introverts are in seemingly extroverted professions (such as media and PR) because of their love for the subject, [but] the successful ones honor their own temperament and make sure to recharge their batteries frequently.”
