If the thought of working with other people makes you want to hole up in a tent and forget about getting a job, don’t fret! There are plenty of jobs for antisocial people. Check out these ideas.

1. Night Security Guard
Malls, business compounds, and museums are all quiet during the night hours. It’s a great time for you to move about and get your fill of solitude.

2. Combine Driver
Crank up the tunes or enjoy the hum of the engine. Either way, it’s just you and the machine chugging across the field. This is seasonal work, but you could also train for heavy equipment jobs that limit your exposure to other people.

3. Nature Photographer
Just you and the animals. Spend your days (or nights) in the jungle, savannah, or mountains, working to get a sneak peak of elusive creatures.

4. Writer
Whether you type out novels, contribute to website content, maintain your own blog, or provide articles for magazines, being a Writer means spending your time alone with a computer.

5. Computer Programmer
Write programs for video games, security software, word processing programs, web design, or myriad other programming options. This work can often be done from home.

6. Long Haul Truck Driver
Have you ever seen “Ice Truckers”? You may not want to go to that extreme, but there are a plethora of truck driving jobs that keep you alone behind the wheel while bringing in the paycheck.

7. Data Entry Clerk
This job is sometimes done from home, but even if you work in an office, you’re one of a handful of office staff buried in the backroom. Put in the earbuds and plug away, entering medical files, insurance claims, or other database information.
