    In retrospect, I think that the original title of the O.P. was misleading.

    It was not my intention to provide a way to determine E or I.

    My intention, as I stated in the conclusion of the O.P., was to dispel the myth (or rather the habit of thinking) that how much one socializes or doesn't socialize indicates E or I.
    Well, the OP did it's job, the more clueless people that see it, the better (assuming that there are actually clueless people around). Do you feel that people might be stereotyping you when they see the E? Chances are, they already know, or are merely joking about it. I'm sure it won't hurt discussing definitions of E/I, unless you're really really keen on emphasizing this statement. I'd like to hear some kind of 'sure sign' kind of definitions for introversion really.

    Ohhh, forgot about them. In including ENs it somehow excluded ISs. Jeez, we'll never have an all-encompassing definition will we?

    By the Myers-Briggs, E/I is determined by dominant function.

    I don't understand how the definition excludes any type.

    Can anyone explain this?

    The problem for me is how does one define "energy"? Being happy?

    Would an I feel alright spending a month without talking to anyone, locked up in a prison alone, with only his thoughts and ideas?

    It means being energized, having more vigor and energy as a result of stimulation.

    It's because IS*P types are stimulated by their environment. They bring their own set of tools to each situation and that colours how they respond/react to the stimulus. But without the stimulus their mind will come to rest.

    The introvert would be missing their 'Do' drive. They would die (figuratively), but die less than an extrovert. This is assuming than they don't go and count the atoms on the walls or something.

    It's hard to see that you've got 'energy', but if you were to describe 'energy' as if you saw it in someone else, I think you'd realize what it is somewhat. It could probably be interpreted as excitable, talkative, enthusiastic, loud, crazy... energetic . An indication of drained energy would be something like refusing to come to a party/go out somewhere directly after a day of work. Although that might be a bit more connected to the Perceptive trait.

    I disagree. The extrovert would die more because they wouldn't be able to 'Do' at all. The extrovert, according to your definition, needs more Doing than Thinking. The situation in prison that Sytpg mentioned involves more Thinking than anything else. The extrovert would feel far less comfortable.
