    This is a good posting because it enumerates some good jobs and bad jobs. I've found it overwhelming to have so many options. It was helpful to engage my therapist. He was able to help me understand myself and my temperament.

    I think too often we choose a career for the wrong reasons. I made this mistake and was miserable, absolutely miserable. I had an IT career that was clearly not the right fit at all for me. The office social dynamic left me confused, bewildered, and angry. I was only concerned about some artificial definition of success.

    I am 100% convinced that the secret to my successful working career is the fact that I almost all ways worked alone.

    It took me a long time to learn that I really need to work alone to be successful: all my working life so far. I'm not yet completely alone but reasonably close. Social interaction is an overrated experience. LOL!
