    (Moderate or mild introvert.)

    At least a month. I was puppy-sitting a neighbor's dog in an empty house and I effortlessly kept myself occupied with various independent activities. It was quite peaceful.

    One-on-one conversations: Theoretically, days. I once spoke on the phone from 7 PM to 8 AM.

    Vacationing with a noisy, social bunch: Still days.

    Active goal-oriented participation in a large group: Three days.

    Active leisure participation in a large group: 3 - 10 minutes. (I take breaks by spacing out.)

    I can socialise and be around noise non stop. That doesn't bother me but i must be interested and stimulated to want to be in that environment.

    The only time i have 'lost it' was when i organised a work's do night out. 70 people to eat and bowl. Wicked night but i did lose it when working out who ordered what, you can imagine the noise from 70 drunk staff (done weeks in advance so some people forgot what they ordered). One girl whilst pissed drunk decided she would have her own meal and anyone else's. In front of all the staff, i told her politely to get her act together to which she ignored then i told her to get her ass outside so i could beat the shite out of her. (It didn't go against me at my annual review ) I did lose it there.

    WIth some very fun folks, 12 hour day of social hanging around, sometimes intense talking etc is just fun.

    If there's person who fills ALL the voids of 1 second silence with him talking, I'd want to shoot him after 1 hour.

    If the person is sensible and follows what I can take in, i.e. We talk rather intensely for minutes straight, even an hour if it's interesting, and cool down for few minutes, and they're not berserk, hyper or on extacy, I can like for the whole day. If they have really interesting stuff to say, 3 days. Then I'll worry about my undone tasks more, and I'll be excused.

    I'm moderately extrovert and I consider myself tolerant to extreme extroversion.

    Noise means little to me. Two days ago I relaxed eating ice cream and watching a busy, loud street. It was soothing.

    You are far more patient than I.

    On the flipside, I can't stand being alone for more than 5-6 hours straight.

    I'm the same way.. Grew up in a tourist town and slept on the closed-in porch sometimes. Grew accustomed and actually grew to enjoy sleeping with motorcycles, drunk people, dogs barking, people splashing in the next door pool and fire engines in the background. (As long as there was a fan to mute it out a bit)

    I have a question for you extroverts who answered you don't mind spending time with only those who are very close to you.

    Now, aren't extroverts suppose to enjoy and get energized by spending time with people in general such as coworkers, customers, random people in the streets, etc...?

    Or is it that introverts can't even handle spending time with people who are close to them?

    In a energised by people Vs frustrated by idiots scenario I find that the being energised part is countered by my being bored with incessant nattering about anything and everything I don't care about and simply not worth it. This doesn't mean I'm not still energised by having people around but I certainly don't crave being around people whose company I don't enjoy and would really rather be on my own. Negative people for example can have a draining effect on my mood so while being around people is energising it's not always worth it for me, quality counts more than quantity. I prefer socialisation with some depth over socialising for the sake of socialising.

    And yes, of course introverts can handle spending time with people they like, it doesn't energise them though so after a period of time they'll want to get away to be in their own space to re-energise.

    Is this really an introvert/extrovert thing? I mean, I can't stand any noise while I'm trying to sleep (I'll sleep with a fan on for white noise) but I worked in nightclubs for years where there was constant people and music, and still found the energy to make money. I think the longest shift I worked consistantly was ten hours, but I prefered something more along the lines of six to eight hours, three to four days per week.

    If I really like someone I can talk to them all night and listen to music, etc.

    But if I am tired I need QUIET.

    Again I say, is this really an introvert/extrovert thing?

    I know that extroverts get energized by outside stimulation. I was curious how long extroverts could go with constant stimulation until they get burned out. Too much of anything is not good so I was wondering what is the limit for other individuals (extroverts). To answer your question, it is about extroverts not introverts. My OP was not clear and things got lost in translation.
