About Us

Our mission: To let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are. There’s nothing wrong with you because you’re quiet. You’re not broken because you like spending time alone.

 About Our Founder

Jenn Granneman has been advocating for introverts since 2013, when she founded Introvert, Dear. She is also the author of the book, The Secret Lives of Introverts: Inside Our Hidden World. She blogs for Psychology Today, and her writing has been featured on The Huffington Post, The MuseQuiet Revolution, The Mighty, and elsewhere. For most of her life, she felt weird, different, and out of place because of her quiet ways; now, she writes about introversion because she doesn’t want other introverts to feel the way she did.

To get personal updates from her, you can follow her on Facebook.
