    Default Extroverts..how much alone time do you need?

    I often hear extroverts say that they need alone time but I wonder just how much do you need?

    A day, or just a few hours. Depends. But generally, I'd say I need more we-time than me-time.

    It depends on how much I have going on, and how I am feeling.

    If I am consumed by personal projects of my own, I can spend a few days by myself working on them, and then at some point I'll get hungry and go to the local bar & grill, get a sandwich, watch sports on the TV with strangers, get a Long island Iced Tea, and then go back to my music lab.

    When I am not feeling well, e.g. virus, migraine/sinus headache, etc., I enjoy time to myself, as it is only then I can rest.

    Otherwise, bring the party on.

    I don't really need alone time, but I like alone time. A couple/few hours a day is nice. If I don't get that, then whatever. I've gone days with very little alone time besides to sleep/do housework and I never was bothered by it. A day of alone time is the maximum. Two days and I'm thoroughly depressed.

    I'm the same way, if I'm alone with no friends or family around and am doing my own thing, then I will tend to go to a bar or restaurant and chat with the locals

    I need alone time. I like a couple hours a day. If that doesn't happen then I need a half to whole day every week or so. If I don't get enough time alone I get irritated, and if I get too much time alone I get bored. I'm working on it.

    I need at least an hour of alone time every three days. More if I'm around people who are just draining and painful to be around.

    I need alone time a couple of times a year, but for a very significant amount of time. Like, I hate being alone generally except once every like 6 months i'll want to take an entire week alone to refocus or something
