The things that energize me are my world of ideas when I get to implement them and anticipation and the worlds of other people.
The only time I am alone and getting energized is getting ready to go out or the first rush or sitting down to study or fill out an application or what not.
Competition energizes me.
I think the difference between levels of introversion/extroversion (and other functions) is how 'good' is defined.
I can be brought back from the dead (at least give it a good try) to spend quality time with a quality someone or some one's.
Stimulation by definition practically energizes anyone - my stimulation is mental, intellectual, and social.
Walking and talking and exploring a new city or neighborhood is very energizing.
It's not so much the number of people I'm around, it's do I feel connected to them?
When I'm visiting NYC and sitting in parks or walking around, I actually do feel connected to people and feel a part of a larger collective energy, so I find that energizing just to be there.
Sitting down, watching TV, reading a book, even foruming - it's not really 'energizing'.
Excercise by definition is 'energizing' -- I like going to the gym for the mood lift. I also love to dance - but I think dancing is something honestly equally enjoyed by introverts/extroverts, there isn't really a correlation just along those lines.
I don't know...I need a clearer definition of 'energize'.
I know I am an extrovert though because even my more solitary moments revolve around the dream or desire to interact with the world. When I watch movies, I'm daydreaming and connecting those things to my own experiences with other people and shared significance, etc. When I study, it's towards the goal of expanding my influence in the world.
But really, I think people are like this in general. Everyone feels and needs to feel connected to something or someone.
Now I'm blabbing.

Oh, dear! Hey, little Black Cat. Here's a nice, dead mousie for you. (I only nibbled just a little on the feet. Um, well. And ears.)
Sunshine energizes me!
"No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer
