Thought 510: Introverts and the Working World

I think it should be obvious that some personalities, particularly introverted, uncompetitive ones, are highly penalised by the mainstream working world in its people-oriented, uncreative and competitive aspects and certainly the world of busy-ness. 

It has been shown that extroverts earn more as a whole than introverts and reach higher positions in most money-making sectors, unpaid deep philosophising not being one of them. 

Areas that would be conceivable for me to work in such as care and translation are notoriously underpaid. 

I gave up on careers a long time ago seeing that whatever skills I may possess are not valued by money-making institutions.
