    Default why do Es sleep? it's MBTI fail.

    Extraverts should be energized by interaction. Introverts with no-interaction. We all know they tell us that we need to sleep in order to gain energy, they tell us that shit from early childhood, and we keep beliving it.. It just doesnt make sense to me, cos if Es gain energy with interacting, while you sleep... you dont interact.. or does dreaming count?
    anyway, do introverts sleep more?




    I just dont feel like sleeping anymore, and they cant make me! not anymore!!

    Is this like the "why do introverts use forums" post?

    I don't like sleeping, I wish I could stay awake all the time.

    Well E/Is all sleep because it's kind of a physiological necessity. Ya know, like eating and taking a shit...

    We don't gain caloric energy from interacting with other people. When they say we "gain energy" from social interaction, that just means that we feel psychologically rejuvenated and more active when we are around people.

    I doubt there are any significant correlations between E/I and how often a person sleeps. The correlation exists when you compare E/I and how much time a person spends alone or with people when they are awake.

    Nothing stopping the E from gaining energy via sleep interactions.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Mmm...in my experience, Is like sleeping much more than Es.

    Anyway, I personally wish I didn't need to sleep. So much time of my life wasted.

    Your experience doesn't include enough data to accurately mirror reality then. Is spend time doing lots of things other than sleeping, they just happen to be doing it alone. Watching movies, analyzing situations, solving math problems, making computer programs, reading the Bible, writing poetry, painting, etc. Hell, lots of these things they may even be able to do in their beds. Just because they are alone and under the sheets does not mean they are sleeping though. (Note: I realize how dirty that last sentence sounds, but get your mind out of the gutter!)

    Please, offer a good reason as to why Is might sleep more than Es. One that I won't be able to counter with all the things I've already mentioned in this thread.
