      What silent jobs are out there? Let's make a list!

      I can think of a few:
      • Programmer
      • Writer
      • Night Guard/Patrol
      • Cartoonist

      What jobs can you add to this list?

      Probably headphones
      I personally think this is a wrong line of thought for three reasons:

      1. We should live our lives normally and don't let T set the rules and paths
      2. There are all sorts of hearing protectors out there we can use even in noisy environments. Not many people for example know that there are active ear plugs that let sounds in normally, but automatically block loud noises.
      3. Quiet and silent environments are not good for us with T -> much better that there is background noise to mask T

      long term NIHL and recent acoustic trauma
      No one wants to wear plugs all day all year - if you have a choice choose a quiet office job it's not going to be dead silent anyway


      @Sound Wave If you say that T should not set the rules then why avoid silence and be so obsessed with masking ? You just contradict yourself here

      An explosion, music, and fate.
      @Sound Wave : what you're saying might be true for someone with mild T, not someone with severe T and H.
      Listening to your body is never a bad idea. What is a normal life ? We have to accept changes as we age or face a disease, that's just life.

      @squeek I think it's a great post ! Not sure about the night guard / patrol one, as it depends on where you work.

      What comes to me right now :
      - medical jobs (most of them)
      - small e-business (operated from home)
      - freelance jobs possible from home (you already said programmer and writer ; graphic designer)
      - lawyer (most of them never leave their office)
      - studio photographer
      - librarian
      - owner of a small shop

      I'd love to be a poet :) can one do that professionally?

      I suppose research is pretty quiet... too quiet :( But you can do whatever you want so bring music and halve productivity :)

      Probably not this day and age lol - You'd have to be bought like in the 18th century to make a good career out of it I would say, who knows perhaps I am wrong!

      I would stick music in this because you can do music through a computer nowadays and therefore turn it all down digitally ;)
