    I take it though you do feel mentally and emotionally fried out after a period of high excitability. And you sound a bit worried by this.
    Well yes.
    I have always had a somewhat obsessive quality - I get superinvested in projects, especially creative or mental ones, and that spurs me on, but its like I get "supercharged" and go beyond my actual limits, I can think of nothing else and it always leaves me feeling burned out and both mentally and emotionally.

    I dont mind being enthusiastic about a project but I so easily get too entusiastic and then my thinking goes in to highspeed typically resulting in hasty decisions, taking on too much, overextending myself, overly optimistic about how fast I will be able to work etc.

    I am pretty sure I am an introvert though - any thoughts on what kind?

    agree with whoever said it depends on what kind of stimulus we're talking about. i can handle bundles and bundles of ideas, but not bundles and bundles of people. i mean i like having them around, but i really can't be interacting with them past a certain point. i just get really cranky. whereas my ESFJ mom can put up with people even when she's really exhausted, but doesn't really care to hear my crazy ass theories. lol.

    and also, i think that certain people are just more energetic than others. i know a kind of hyper INTP and a more low-energy ENFJ, both of which would supposedly go against their type generalizations.

    I would think ExFP and ExFJ would cope better with excitability and not end up feeling fatigued afterwards? Or am I wrong?
    again, depends on the kind of project, but i'd go with xxxP tends to jump in, overdo it, and accidentally fry ourselves. it's Ne and Se, which thrive off of in-the-moment action/connection, whereas Fe and Te give xxxJ more direction to their extraversion. Ne and Se never reach a point where it's better to stop, so it's easy to push ourselves overboard, imo. and then the "fried out" feeling comes from Fi or Ti desperately needing to catch up with Ne or Se. Js tend to be better at pacing themselves and working steadily and evenly.

    This happened to me yesterday after I got almost no sleep the night before I had to finish my final exam project and spent over time at school rushing to finish it up at the last minute(which I did). After I was so sleepy(and still am).

    I think all types and functions are prone to this behavior. I think one can overdo their dominant function and its problematic when the auxilary is not developed enough to help balance out the dominant.

    I'd associate burnout or "all or nothing" attitude largely with the inferior function.

    I think extraverted types, particularly dominant Fe or Ne are going to appear more outwardly 'excitable' but I think all types are equally likely to overdo functions.

    apparent excitability will be most tangible amongst the Fe types

    Fi types is an internal spring or river running underground

    You are not wrong.
    Excitability in the sense Victor described it is linked to primary non-activity, that is it is found within the contour of the primary IP domain. It is accentuated with high Fi. Many INTPs have high Fi. A correlation with Enneagram 4w5 or even 5w4. In some French psychology books it is linked to the Nervous type. Historical examples: Poe, Byron.

    75 percent of the impulsive types are extraverted. The Nervous type is introverted. IFP.

    Yes. Introversion is a retreat from external stimulation. A little goes a long way.

    OP, also see thread on HSPs (Highly Sensitive Persons). This type is most strongly correlated to INFP, iirc.
