What we're about

Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the London Introverts Social Club. This group is specifically for Introverts but we also welcome Extroverts too.

People often mistaken the word “introvert” for shyness which is not true, many introverts are very confident, however, they are usually confident in a quiet way (although it is true that most shy people are introverted). Introverts get energised by reflecting inwards, whereas people who are extroverted get energised the more they socialise.

There are many qualities and patterns of behaviour that define an introvert but generally speaking it can often include the following;

1. You enjoy having time to yourself

2. Your best thinking occurs when you're by yourself

3. Other people ask you for your opinion

4. You're a good listener.

5. You're trustworthy

6. Introverts are thought provoking when you get them talking

7. Introverts are self-reflective

Famous Introverts include Barack Obama, Dali Lama, Albert Einstein, Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling, Emma Watson, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Warren Buffet, Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden... the list goes on :-)

In 2017 we plan to host a number of fun events so please keep checking the calender and hopefully something will tickle your fancy.

By joining, you agree to our Group Rules and Banning Procedure. You also agree to our Legal Disclaimer and Release of Liability. If you don't agree to these terms, do not join this Meetup Group. If you have any complaints or concerns to report, please have a look at our Complaints Procedure.

Watch travel videos with Michael

Needs a location

This event is hosted by Michael, and also listed on London Shyness Social Group.

Join me on a relaxing around-the-world trip on YouTube! We will use the platform Watch2Gether where we can watch the same stream of videos and chat together. There will be no video call, so this event is perfect if you already had an overdose of zoom calls. You will find the chat on the bottom right side of the Watch2Gether page.

The travel videos will be chosen beforehand and I will try to get them from all corners of the world. And feel free to request a video before or during the event and I will add it to the end of my playlist.

To use the anonymous text chat during the event: if you are on PC/Mac, please click the “dialogues” icon at bottom right of your screen to open the text chat box (see “photos” section for screenshot); if you are on mobile devices the chat box is at the bottom half of your screen

I will post the link in the comments section around 30 minutes before the event starts.

================
Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it's up to Andy and Nile (Kiki Layne), the newest soldier to join the ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary.

"Gina Prince-Bythewood's The Old Guard is unlike any other movie based on a graphic novel. She gives us a steady stream of action and a storyline that never bores, and a welcome message about the power of goodness."
