Introverts United

Introverts United is a cultural organization dedicated to anyone who is introverted. We think that we ought to be a cultural organization instead of just another college club because introversion is a core trait of who we are that can often be discounted in our culture.

Introversion basically means that person gains energy while alone engaging in solitary activity and loses energy while with others egaging in social activity, although there are varying degrees and exceptions. It does not necessarily mean being shy, sensitive, or quiet, but they can obviously overlap.

Introverts tend to prefer deep conversations with a few people, and in Introverts United, we will discuss both the challenges and advantages of being an introver in a world that can't stop talking.
