My OP was not clear and things got lost in translation.
    I wasn't really questioning the clarity of your OP. I was questioning whether or not this trait actually defines an introvert vs. an extrovert.

    What trait? I'm completely confused. The parallel question would "Introverts, how much alone time could you take before you burn out?"

    Being able to, say, work in an environment with lots of music and noise and people, like a bar or nightclub or casino. Consistantly.

    And couldn't an introvert theoretically be completely okay with a more isolated, yet noisy, job, such as working with machinery or something?

    Is tolerance of noise an introvert/extrovert thing?

    You're right. It's not exclusive to extroverts. I was equating noise to outside stimulation. Since extroverts get energized by external factors, I was wondering how long they could tolerate constant stimulation before getting burned out. It's pretty much the same thing as wondering how long introverts can stand being alone in a quiet place before getting burned out.
    Of course, introverts can tolerate noise and extroverts can tolerate being alone.

    Break? It is a non-question.

    How long can I be alone before I break? I think I could be alone forever if I had books, but I would constantly yearn for someone to share the acquired wisdom with, and I would be constantly sad because of it.

    To answer the OP:
    If you throw in time for me to eat, sleep, use the restroom and do the Wild Thing, I can be with nonstop socializing forever, easily. In fact, I'm going to be the one making the noise.

    Especially during the Wild Thing.

    Hmm - If the chatter is meaningful - 8 hours
    If not - 30minutes - give or take 30 minutes

    If I'm in good company or enjoying myself, I can hang out for hours and hours and days and days. My limits for 'good' stimulation are almost limitless, I'm kinda a glutton and have a somewhat addictive personality. When I get into something, I get disgustingly hooked on it until I get sick of it and it no longer holds interest for me.

    So, yeah, I have a lot of stamina when it comes to socializing, partying, running around, etc.

    Now, when it comes to mind-numbing mindless chattering where people are talking for the sake of talking? Oh mang, I feel like I'm a zombie and I just need to get outta there. I think unlike an ENFJ, I usually feel uncomfortable taking control of the situation unless I am a hostess or representative as I don't want to bulldoze people (ENFJs wouldn't necessarily bulldoze, they'd probably help the mood immensely) so I just end up feeling kinda dissatisfied and tense and my Ne goes into "how do I get out of here/make this interesting?" mode.

    PS I can talk A LOT.

    Extroverts, how much nonstop socializing and noise can you take before you break?

    With good company: I can take a lot.
    With not so good company: not much at all.

    Big groups: couple of hours

    One on one with interesting conversation: 24 hours. I'll delay eating, sleeping, sex, anything for a good conversation.

    I prefer as much interaction with others as possible. I could probably take it almost constantly for the rest of my life, friends or strangers (preferably peers with similar interests). If I ever need a break (not because of exhaustion but for contemplation of something) I always know how to (politely or otherwise) find a way to slip off. That's always been a strength of mine.

    But those times would be rare. I much prefer interacting with others, and when there's no one around I tend to get depressed pretty quickly. That's why I'm on the internet alot while I don't currently have a way to get out and about alot.

    I mostly enjoy party atmospheres. I can handle deeper conversations every once in awhile (and actually prefer that they happen sometimes), as long as the crew wants to intersperse fun activities with them as well as the basis for hangouts.
