need more time to regroup away from people? As Fi stated, they get their energy from being alone, and Extroverts from others. That makes sense to me. I think that's what Really confuses my old friends, just how much time I can spend alone. I mean, I don't leave house unless I Have to now, and have about one to three social experiences a month, and those are usually one-on-one.
I used to feel Guilty about this, or like a less successful person because of it. But that's just one of those societal issues - "The people with the most friends when they die win." Never mind that their "friends" didn't know them at all.
I also noticed the emphasis on "stimuli" in that book. That really hits home. When the TV is too loud, when I'm in Walmart, when two people are talking to me at once - I go Krazy.
