    I need lots of alone time, i really enjoy time to think, plan, enjoy my own space.
    I love to read alone and potter around the house.

    Yeah, I guess work is included in that category for "forced interaction," but that also depends on how much energy I need to put into socializing at work. If my co-workers or boss are not complete idiots, and are enjoyable people to work with, I won't require much recharge time at all when the end of the day approaches.

    Hmm. I use alone time as a reprieve to think about things or introspect. I do little to no thinking while interacting with other people. I basically can't think while I'm socializing or it won't go well. I just do it and it turns out better. I need the alone time to reflect on everything that happened and refocus.

    i need my space. it doesn't have to be
    in an empty room though. i'm used to
    the hustle and bustle. i usually go shopping
    for my 'space' time. space out and charge.

    I prefer spending time with people over alone time any day. However, I do become consumed with personal activities, like reading, which keep me engaged for hours. I tend to start feeling sick and depressed when I'm alone for too long, though. So technically, I don't really need alone time, but I purposefully spend some time alone so that I can at least do something for myself.
    Feel free to dispute my type.

    I don't find that I need alone time at all. Sometimes I just want alone time, because I'm feeling really down, but usually that feeling dissipates once I'm actually with people.
