What we're about
Being an introvert in a largely extroverted world is tough! We live in a world where extroversion seems to be the norm. Introverts are often misunderstood, perhaps viewed as anti-social. Introverts are not antisocial, but we are differently social.
This is a group for anyone interested in meeting other introverts without the hassle of having to deal with an overdose of extroversion. I started this group because there were no others in Perth.
Membership costs $2 a year. You can pay for this in the left tool bar, under "Membership dues".
We have our own website here (http://www.introverts-meetup-perth.net.au/).
Note: being introverted is not the same thing as being shy, though introverted people certainly can be shy as well. Shyness refers to a lack of confidence or feeling of anxiety in social situations. Someone who is introverted may actually feel quite confident in social situations. However, making the effort to socialize will tire an introvert out.

Fun facts: Tom Hanks, Charles Darwin, Mahatma Gandhi, Julia Roberts, Warren Buffet, JK Rowling, Albert Einstein, Rosa Parks, Bill Gates, Steve Martin, Al Gore, Google's Larry Page, C.S. Lewis and Johnny Carson are all introverts.
