Job that require little to no interpersonal contact?

What are some careers in which a person could do without little interpersonal contact? I am writing a paper and I am at a loss at some types of job in which a person could work, unsupervised, and little or no contact with others. It would be nice if that person could be told what to do by his/her boss and then be left to do it.

I am also looking for jobs for people who are ultra perfectionists. What jobs do people excel in who just obsess about being perfect and not making mistakes?

Computer programmers can work for quite a while without interpersonal contact.

That's not a good job for perfectionists, though, since programmers need to have a perfectionistic streak--that's actually an asset.

Medical transcription is another job where people would be given the work and then left to do it unsupervised.

I have also done freelance work for an educational software company, correlating state educational objectives with the lessons in the program. That job was done "by mail" so very unsupervised.

I do have computer programmer, but I didn't have the free lance work for educational software companies to correlate state objectives with lessons.

Now I need jobs for those who are ultra perfectionists. These people aren't necessarily solitary people. These perfectionists don't have to be alone. But, they can't get the job done if they aren't perfect!

I have had a job like that too. One summer I worked in the electronics warehouse of a defense contractor that built sonar for the Navy. My job was to take the giant spec sheets and package up 10 of this part, 15 of that part...counts had to be accurate and it had to be the right piece.

Some of my coworkers were sending in bad packets with inaccurate counts or wrong parts, and then it became my job to double-check their work.

Perfectionists also make good editors, although they have largely been forced out of that job by Spellcheck, which can't do the job nearly as well as a human.

Barb, thanks! I like your ideas. The problem with people with Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (not Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is that they are so perfectionistic that the task is lost. I am trying to figure out jobs they would be suited for that all they have to do it find inperfections and correct them. That would get rid of them having to deal with the task.

Thanks!

DeBora, any kind of Quality Control work would be perfect for people like that.

I like that term, "quality control." I think I am finished with my paper with the exception of editing. I will do that tomorrow when I am not so tired.
