Self-employment Ideas for Introverts

You realize you lean towards introversion and that’s an OK thing! You’re thinking maybe you just need to find the right path that fits your introverted style. No more extrovert mask to fit in! And you think self-employment might give you the freedom to create work the way you want it. (Yes!) Sound familiar? I love the freedom of self-employment, and it’s working for me in my own introverted way. In this post, I’ll explain why and how self-employment can work well for introverts, including a few specific ideas for you. Self-employment Is a Natural Fit for Introverts I asked some folks in my Facebook group for introverts, “What types of careers feel most suited to your introverted nature?”

Here are some insights from self-employed introverts: “Since I have my business, I loooove working alone and deciding when I meet with people.” [INTJ] Why are INTJs so rare? - Page 2. No offense taken, I will elaborate further down below.

It doesn't seem like you're too aware of how personality and MBTI work, so I'll try to make this as simple as I can without confusing you. Personality is innate and it stems from your cognitive preferences (within the brain). INTJs cognitive preferences or functions are Ni (Introverted Intuition) + Te (Extraverted Thinking) + Fi (Introverted Feeling) + Se (Extraverted Sensing), in that order. What this basically means in laymens terms, is that INTJs are not people oriented, they don't have the 'need' to associate with people as much as other types.

Being that we are 'social animals' that kind of black balls us into a corner of rarity. See above. This is not true. They don't change their personality, they change their behavior. Really it's both, there are a lot of variables that play an important role in the development of personality. Introversion in general gets a bad rap.

MBTI is pseudoscience and no better than astrology.There are personality tests that are more scientific than the MBTI.In terms of empirical evidence, types don’t exist. Human traits are distributed on a bell curve (normally), not as two camel humps (bimodally).People who take the MBTI multiple times often come out as different types (Low Test-Retest Reliability).MBTI descriptions contain vague and flattering statements that anyone would agree to (Forer Effect).Psychologists and academic researchers don’t take the MBTI seriously.Jung’s cognitive functions were good.

Out of all the personality types, INTJs have the most difficulty in the area of mating.

The INTJ: Sex, Dating, and Love

Not because there is something wrong with them, per se, but because they regard the selection as a rational process, a matter of finding someone who meets their physical and intellectual requirements. They desire a mate of the mind: someone smart, preferably genius, harmonious, and above all else independent, able to stand up to their formidable personalities. The INTJ will figure out very quickly, usually by the first or second date, whether or not a relationship has a future. If not the INTJ will not waste time toying with courtships of little promise; they are done and they will not look back.

Masterminds rely on their heads rather than their hearts when dating, and thus are often accused of being cold and calculating when breaking things off. Another unfortunate problem for the INTJ is their infinite patience when it comes to dating. In conclusion, INTJs make wonderful mental and loving mates.
