I have had loads of jobs and have been fired from every single one of them except two lawn-mowing jobs I had as a teenager. Being avoidant means I just can't be around people; I go crazy from the stress and become insufferable, so they get rid of me. I don't blame them. I'm retired and pretty financially secure now, so those days are gone and it doesn't matter anymore.


I do have a workshop and tools and could make things for sale, but the quandary is it's hard to keep myself going motivation-wise due to loneliness, I could use some company, but can't take having people around for very long. So a lot of my life has been wasted sort of because things just get done better when you work with partners or a team. Eventually I've always eventually gone crazy having someone around. I'm actually calmer now that I've better accepted being a loner.

Only 5. It's hard getting a job. Interviewing is torture. And it's like winning the lottery to get accepted. Unless it's a really horrible job I guess. That's how I got a cafe job - no one else wanted it because it was so much work.

New job every two years on average. Most of my problems are with learning issues (trouble absorbing large amounts of information) and of course, people. I try to 'be social' but eventually I fall back on my instincts of avoiding people. Which comes off as weird or even hostile.

Default Re: How many jobs have you worked?

I've worked 6 professional jobs over my 32 years of life. Most last about two years. It's at this point I find myself checked out, sick of the repetition and structure, and god forbid a boss tell me to do something. Eventually I can't hide my disdain anymore and find a new job, just to have the process repeat.

The idea that I should work for myself often enters my mind, but then, when there's no structure, I end up doing nothing because I just want to be left alone. There doesn't seem to be any good path.

i can count 10 different jobs although 3 of them were with the same employer but at 3 different hospitals. i worked tossing pizzas, worked in a factory in the office and on the floors for a short period of time when i first started. Then i started at a small hospital, then a lateral move to a slightly bigger hospital and then 2 bigger ones and when i was in college i worked as a research librarian. yep thats 10 adult jobs. I did work in the family business when i was in high school i forgot about that so 11 all together.
have a great day, Tams

Ive had like... 7 jobs in the past 5 years? I havent worked in a year but I kind of wish I was. I like work. Like having my own money and enough income to treat myself occasionally.

Now though Im looking more for a career than a job

54 yo, care taker for my 90 yo parents. Don't get much things, birthday & christmas money/gifts, but I'm happy working on my science projects. No friends unfortunately because I can't find anyone like me.

It's been about 16 or so years since I worked, thank god! I went through jobs left & right. Working with humans was torture. One of these days if I ever have money I'll try to go to a therapist or someone to heal from the childhood trauma.
