    Finnish people are a shy race, especially in small towns like PMK. You can't be too quiet or shy yourself or you'll never talk to anyone or learn anything about the town. On the flip side, being too forward and outgoing can also ostracise you as they'll be too intimidated to come up to you. I learned this the hard way as I myself have always been a pretty shy person so it was really hard for me to make a lot of friends while living here. Most of my friends during that time where the few outgoing Finns or fellow foreigners.
