Hey you have a big plus point of being a good observer and listener which are required better to succeed in life than being more expressive or outgoing.
So cash on your personality rather than making it a drawback. Hope it helps you.

Hello. You seem to be insightful on what's making it difficult for you to get desired results at work. It is common to see people who are extroverts succeed at work, however, success is not limited to them (or that personality trait). Nature of an individual cannot be changed by counselling, however, the counselor can help you develop social skills that will help you in your work life. As for choosing a profession related to your nature, introversion/ extroversion is not the sole criteria, which means you can continue to stay in this career and do well if that is your desire. Wishing you all the best. - Reflective Arena
