    Going with INTJMom's explaination, introverts recieve energy from those particular componenets, all of which take place within the self, in the internal world. Extroverts recieve energy from the things happening around them.

    This is why introverts feel less energized around larger groups of people, due to the fact that they have to focus the energy they recieve to the extroverted world, which taxes their reserves. Contrastly, this is why extroverts don't have a problem with interacting with a greater number of individuals, due to their energy already directed outwardly.

    I'd agree with this - in groups of people I dont feel completely comfortable with I have to concentrate very hard to interact (and deal with the nf thing of tapping into body language and subtleties of communication/feelings/motivations -which I wish I could turn off) - there feels little about it which is natural and without considerable effort - I never completely relax.

    Contrast this with a friend I was on a course with last month who is an esfj - his communication with complete strangers (this time a waiter at the restaurant) is so natural - effortless and enjoyable and you can see him getting such a buzz out of it - I love him to bits but he wears me out.

    We went out for a meal, had a laugh and a good evening - I went to bed a 11-00pm tired and ready for a bath and a half hour with a book - he stayed up until 2am drinking with the bar staff

    But, could this explain why computers are so addicting for introverts? At least IxTx's? It's constant controlled self-contemplation.

    An introvert is energized by his or her own thoughts and ideas and is tired out from interaction with the world.
    I believe that many people are a mixture of introversion/extraversion.

    Darnit! I think I fail at determining the difference between the two now and was hoping you could clarify! With some people it's obvious but I don't even know about myself anymore

    So what does it mean in terms of MBTI if you're a mixture?

(example: I'm an introvert, when I'm upset or hurt I want to be alone. My father is an extrovert, when he's upset or hurt he wants people with him ALL THE TIME).
    Right on. I recently dealt with a tragedy, and the day of this tragic event, a bunch of friends came over to my place uninvited to "comfort"... almost put me over the edge.
