Some type of repair person--electrician, plumber etc. where you are only dealing with a few people at once and dealing mostly with fixing things. An occupational therapist (again only dealing with one person at a time). Truck driver?

I can vouch that being a night auditor, at least for a hotel, requires zero experience and works out pretty well if you prefer being by yourself and doing paperwork instead of dealing with people. So long as you don't mind working the night shift, most places seem happy to take whoever they can get provided they show up reliably. No manager wants to be called in at midnight to cover for an auditor no-show.

I should know, it's my job.

Car Jockey/Dealer Trade Driver

Log in new cars coming in off the transports, move cars around the dealership lot and showroom, wash cars, drive cars between dealerships when they trade them between each other or to other shops to have accessories added etc , mostly in the city, but sometimes from city to city.

Just you and cars all day. Just need a driver's licence with a clean record.

Graveyard shift at the Sleez-E Mart. There will be a few people/strangers, but they should be few and far between on most nights.

Actor.

Yeah, I know that probably seems a bit odd but trust me (cos I'm someone on the internet).

Sign up with an amateur dramatic society and do a couple of shows as an extra. Then audition for a supporting role.

There's no money in it and you'll still be an introvert but you'll learn to master the social anxiety.

Break a leg.

Yes

RE: Jobs for a introvert with social anxiety.
I used to regularly go to online job places and hire people for temp jobs to do on the computer from home. Some of the jobs turned into careers.

There are lots of online jobs, try looking for some as content writer, you can surely handle short descriptions of items or processes...

And a penchant for dealing with assholes, depending on the dealership.

This was my job before my current hotel gig, and I worked there for years. First off, avoid family owned dealerships; nepotism tends to run rampant, and dickheads who kiss the boss's ass (or just their own family) get promoted over decent people who don't. I mean, you're going to be in close proximity with people who are incentivized to by lying pieces of shit. They work on commission, sales are all that matters. If the place is large enough, compartmentalized enough, with enough barriers between you and them? It might not be too bad. But from my own personal experience, I'd never go back to it.

Or possibly go to a therapist who specializes in anxiety disorders and get some tools and/or meds to better deal with it.

RE: Jobs for a introvert with social anxiety.
Another idea would be an overnight security guard.

If you wanted something a little more active--possibly a store detective. I was a store detective in college. They hired me without experience. You do walk around the stores--so customers are obviously there--but you don't interact with them. You just walk around and pretend to be shopping (which wasn't difficult for me Girl_nails Tongue )

In addition to pretending to be a customer, and for a good portion of the time, you're on your own in the office with the cameras or climbing up into towers or into rafters to watch and catch shoplifters.

Obviously, sometimes there's a few tussles on occasion, but it didn't happen too often. I only got into one or two fistfights during the three years I worked there and that was due to a customer completely snapping when I stopped them for stealing. It was also in the inner city.
