What should I do? I really want to quit.

I recently graduated last July 2012 and started working for a reputable bank in October 2012. When I accepted the offer, there was so much apprehension simply because the rush to accept it was due to obligation to my family, who kept pressing me on my job application statuses.

Right now, I have never felt so out of place. It's been 4 months since I started working. I am an extremely introverted person, but my role requires me to perform aggressive sales (I am a front line staff). I really do not know how I am going to achieve that. I really want to quit. It's not because of the environment and the people in it. My colleagues are fine and helpful. It's just the demands of the job greatly departs from my personality, which is reserved and quiet.

I am aware of the "stay-for-at-least-2-years" principle, but I simply cannot imagine myself surviving for any longer. Yet, I am aware of the negative impact it would have on my future resume. I really need advice and help right now. Could anyone share their experience with me?
