- Dog trainer
Unless you consider Dogs as one of the undiscovered species of Humans, social anxieties shouldn’t be applicable to dogs. It’s okay to play with them or be around them without feeling awkward. In fact, most people with social anxieties tend to take more likings to pets as compared to extroverts or out-going people. That in one way or the other help them to compensate for their inability in socially demanding activities. Of course, dog trainer requires some social interactions, but that is restricted to a minimal amount. This minimal amount of social activities can be a small step to develop better social interaction and be more comfortable in the social environment in the future.
Another great job or career for people with social anxieties is to be an artist. Of course, this requires specific skills or interest as well. If you have the right skills and suffer from social anxiety, being an artist is one of the best and comfortable jobs. However, it can be difficult to make good money in this field, due to the shortage of professional artworks. If you have a good interest in art, you can think of professional jobs that require your abilities. A graphic designer is one good example which also requires a good knowledge of art and involves minimal social activities.
Studies suggest that people with social anxieties have a natural ability for taking good pictures. It may be because they see the world differently or just because they have unique perspectives as compared to extroverts or normal socializing people. This natural ability can reflect on their unique photography skills. Photography, in particular, is a good paying job with some minimal amount of social interactions. This of course also depends, for example: if you are a wedding photographer, it does require some social interactions, but if you are a freelance photographer you really don’t need any social activities. You just go around clicking unique pictures and sell them online.
