Web resources


This page contains a list of useful web resources of interest to introverts. As this website is aimed primarily at UK audiences, I have deliberately focused on UK-based websites, even though most of them are not actually UK-specific. Of course there are a huge number of US-based websites as well and I have listed some of the main ones at the end.
