Australia Ranked Second Best Country In The World For Introverts

Social distancing restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic has provided a perfect environment for introverts around the world.

They aren't obligated to go to parties or have interactions they'd rather avoid.

But now that restrictions are easing, these introverts are faced with the reality that they will soon have to socialise with others again.

Well, they could always move to Australia in the future as it's been found to be the second best country in the world for introverts.

Merchant Machine has compiled a list of the top 10 best countries that would suit introverts, with Canada coming out on top.

The site worked out the list thanks to a combination of people per square metre, the WiFi speed, the average annual salary and rent per month.

Canada absolutely nailed the list with four people per sqm, 141Mbps, average salary of $29,587 and rent of a little more than $1,000. Australia was hot on their tails but fell short on the internet speed.

The top two countries aren't really that surprising considering how much land isn't actually inhabited by people.

Dennis Relojo-Howell, founder of psychology website Psychreg, said: "Crowds can drain energy from introverts, so this lockdown might have been favourable for them in becoming even more productive.

"With introverts' innate ability to focus, they can be a particular asset to the company. They can be well attuned to capturing why your clients really need and they can propose unique solutions to improve your company's performance.

"If you're an introvert leader, you should not let your personality affect your organisation's goal. As a leader, you should be able to motivate your team with motivation. As an introvert leader, you can have individualised discussions with your team on how to set up directions and achieve organisational goals."

Merchant Machine also discovered what career you should pursue if you're a true introvert.

They found a physicist or astronomer was the best suited role for someone who likes avoiding others and social scenarios. Other roles include machine operators, web developers, IT data analysts and welders.
