    I think this is interesting, too, though I know perceivers (extroverted as well as introverted) who never do this.
    As far as you know. But let's say it's an example of preferring openness over closure.

A human being can only rely on themselves so much.

    Trust me, I'm not that likeable
    Lol

    is it possible to just ask her?
    People give this advice so often. Sometimes it's good, but in this case what are you going to say? "Hey uh, are we done here? I got shit to do and even if I didn't I feel this meaningful conversation has run it's course, what more do you want from me? Why are you so needy??"

    I'm going to guess if you asked this person, they're going to get their feelings hurt.

    Just make up an excuse. "Well, I have to shampoo my cat now." Works everytime.

    But you can SEE them.

    I feel a strange sensation that I'm missing something here.
    No you're not. To me, that's weird as shit. Apparently this is a more common thing to do than I thought, but I would NEVER do this. I don't know if it's an extrovert thing. Is she an extrovert? (can't recall if you said) I'm an extrovert, on top of being an ENTP I would INSTANTLY recognize that the conversation is over and end it.

    Observation: so far, the ENTPs sound like they're not down for this kinda thing.

    The ENFPs, otoh, kinda sound like they are.

    And my main experience with someone who was like this was with an ENFP.

    She was also bizarrely aware of exactly how I was feeling on my side of the phone.

    Like, telepathically so.

    Bottom line, similar to @Golden_Cherry 's situation, she sounds lonely and isolated. You're a good friend for sticking on the phone with her, but you're not required to sacrifice your time for her discontent.

    Maybe you do mention something. Like, "Hey, what's going on with you? Are you ok?" Maybe that's exactly what she wants to hear. She's in a rough spot and has been glossing over the real issue.

    I think @skylights summed it up pretty well. I can be the same way sometimes.

    I love you people. <3 You're always so insightful and helpful.

She gets me to play video games at her house, just to create noise. If she's left alone in a quiet house, she's like a dog. She starts shivering, and getting all paranoid.
    Yes!!! I was just at her house a couple of weekends ago and she ignored me quite a bit when I was there. I thought that was weird.

    She is, but did you not want to get off the phone when you had nothing more to say?

    I didn't ask but I have mentioned it twice and both times and she seemed oblivious and just blew it off. I'm not super worried or distressed about this, but I was just wondering if this was extroversion in action.

    How were you feeling on your side of the phone?

    I think @skylights summed it up pretty well. I can be the same way sometimes.
    People keep saying this, and although I agree, skylights said "i like having people AROUND" like physically in the room. And texting/IMing while doing stuff is TOTALLY different than just being on a phone when the conversation's over. That's still weird to me.

    Even on Skype, you have video and can leave it on and do stuff and talk when something comes up (although this one is still a little odd to me).
