Career Information for Analytical Introverts

Aerospace Engineer

Aerospace engineers design and test aircraft and aerospace technology. They work to develop projects and use analytical skills to figure out design elements and find different alternatives that can be used. Aerospace engineers typically work in an office space, which can be great for introverts who enjoy working alone. Aerospace engineers need a bachelor's degree and if they are working on national defense projects they will also need security clearance.

Architect

Architects need good analytical skills to understand what a design entails and for what purpose it is created in that way. Though architects must communicate with workers and clients, most of their time is spent planning and designing in their own office, which can be good for introverts. Architects also take care of construction contracts and visit the work site to check on progress. Architects must have a professional degree in architecture, internship experience, and pass the Architect Registration Examination.

Systems Software Developer

Systems software developers learn what a user needs and develop software to fit those needs, which is why analytical skills are necessary in this profession. They design software piece by piece and complete testing to ensure it works the way it should. Many times software developers collaborate with others in order to create a better product, but most of the designing process can be done independently. Software developers must have a bachelor's in computer science and experience with computer programming.

Financial Examiner

Financial examiners must have exceptional analytical skills in order to efficiently evaluate if a manager is handling risks and loans safely. They put together reports to show how well bank management is doing in their decision making, as well as keeping up with new guidelines and procedures that need to be followed. Though financial examiners have to visit institutions to conduct evaluations, most of their time is spent in their office with little interaction with others. Financial examiners need a bachelor's degree.

Farmer, Rancher, and Other Agricultural Manager

Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers must be precise and accurate when taking care of and monitoring their land and livestock. They also evaluate market conditions for livestock and crops, along with selling them. They supervise other employees, though only some communication is needed which is perfect for introverts wanting to work in this profession. Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers must have a high school diploma and will gain experience while on the job.
