I am not going to say what job I do as I detect a certain amount of job-related prejudice on this forum.

i couldn't really imagine doing anything else. i've struggled a lot with the motivation required to earn the advanced degrees one needs though. i quit for a year during my m.a. studies and it's taken me eight years to finally be close to finishing my ph.d.
the rewards are many and have kept me going. no boss, i mostly set my own schedule, i can work a lot at home. i have colleagues i say "hi" to in the hallway, not coworkers i'm expected to work with and probably socialize with too. the teaching isn't too difficult once you get the hang of it. it's a lot more like acting or performing than socializing. and i'm in the classroom for less than eight hours a week.
it's hard work and it's not for everyone, but it's not a bad way for a schizoid to make a living compared to most other jobs out there.
