Why do people usually end up in careers that suit their personality type?

Like there is a massive difference in personalities between a computer programmer and a sales person. Do people tend to end up where they most belong personality/skillet wise in a career path? Computer programming tends to attract introverts who are socially awkward because the only thing they have to interact with all day is a computer and requires no social skills. But a sales person requires talking to people all day long and using their social skills to seal a deal and sell a product/service.

    Very few do. Most people have meaningless jobs  and low pay.

    People who interview you for a job are usually gifted with a sense of whether you'd be a good fit for the job, based on those who are succeeding in that job at the company.
