    Default Type and excitability?

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone have any input on what type (or dominant function) is the most excitable? And by that I mean most likely to get too emotionally or mentally involved in stuff, too enthusiatic (or the opposite - to negative), most liable to suffer from burnout, most likely to adopt an "all or nothing" attitude, getting too engaged or too disengaged?

    I would really like an answer to this so if anyone can help please do

    EFP and EFJ probably.

    EFP probably less, since their enthusiasm is based more around things/events/ideas.. Fe is specifically "people invested", and could be more unpredictable/leading to burnout.

    I concur with Professor K-Dude!

    I know several ExFPs and ExFJs in real life and all are "excitable" in their own way.

    Thanks!
    Among the introverted types, what type would is most likely to get overwhelmed, obsessed, overly invested, and feel emotionally and mentally "fried out" afterwards?

    I am told I am OE (over excitable). However I prefer to say I have a high response to stimulae. OE is unusual and I have tried to speak with others with OE on the internet and ended up here.

    For me, being highly excitable is normal. I am highly excitable by reading, by looking at and making art, by ideas and putting them into practice, by social interaction, and simply by waking up in the morning.

    I would like to think of it as a gift. And so it is a gift I need to treasure and develop.

    When I find someone else with high excitability, we flow together like water.

    One advantage is that I can concentrate for long periods on something I like. I can enter into the flow where time disappears, even I disappear for a while.

    Flow I find is deeply relaxing and refreshing and validating.

    Probably the most important thing is that I need to look after myself.

    Dude, seriously, I'm probably the most effervescent person on this whole entire forum.

    Thank you for your response.
    One question though, do you tend to feel mentally and/or emotionally fried out after experiencing hight excitability? Like all your emotional and/or mental synapses have been burned out?

    I think it depends what kind of environmental stimulation an introvert is dealing with. A N could get tired of S activities.. or not. An S could get bored with N. Personally, Fe types could hug me all day, make me dinner, throw a party, be interested in me, cheer me up about whatever I'm going through, and I'd be happy.

    It's like interval training where I have a burst of energy followed by a recovery period. The recovery period is very important for that is where the body and mind integrate the burst of energy.

    However after a recovery period I feel refreshed and relaxed and ready for the next burst of energy.

    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.

    Okay, I think the type I am trying to pinpoint is someone who tends to get overly excited and invested in whatever project captures their interest and who experience a rush of energy from it, but its a mock kind of energy because it always leaves the person feeling feeling really "fried out" both emotionally and mentally?

    I would think ExFP and ExFJ would cope better with excitability and not end up feeling fatigued afterwards? Or am I wrong?
