    you get energy from Fi instead of Se, but since Se is aux function it doesent use it much either. what does Se have to do with anything on this matter?

    Because Se is oriented to the external.

    What energy? What is meant by energy? The impetus to do something?

    Emotional energy, or mental energy.

    Here's where I explained this occasional disparity between extroversion and extraversion:

    I don't know if there's such a harsh line between introverts and extroverts as we like to think. There are some people who are pretty extreme in one way or another, but not everyone is like that. I consider myself pretty close on introversion/extroversion too. Sometimes people and external events really energize me, sometimes they really drain me and I just want to nap.

    As an introvert, I could literally go weeks (months?) without interacting with people if I wanted to. I still need some level of interaction to stay connected to the outside world and to stay sane/human, but I don't really go looking for it. When I'm in a group, I often feel like I'm expending lots of energy. When I'm alone, I'm recharging and feeling good. A highly extroverted person probably wouldn't feel the same way. Just depends where you're at on the E/I continuum. E <---------------> I
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    Could it be based on the direction of your T/F? Does Ti seem more reserved than Te, Fe over Fi? - I mean can an IxTJ appear more extraverted than an IxTP as a general rule?

    I've always looked at it as the opposite direction of your primary preference will drain you mentally, even if it does energize or stimulate you.

    I love interacting with people, especially people who return the energy. I also enjoy speaking in front of people. Even though these things excite/energize me, they DRAIN me, sometimes so much that once I'm alone I feel like I need a nap but I'm not physically tired.

    This.
    I think those closer to the border will find that some things in the external energize, and some things on the internal energize. They say everyone has a core underlying preference.. but it is possible to be so close you can't decipher. The e/i doesnt really matter anyhow right? Its the order of the functions.

    Yes it's the order, which helps you decipher where you fall. I know for one that I'm an extraverted introvert, although I don't think I'm very heavy handed on Te.

    Exactly! Which function do you feel most "at home" with? Is this function extraverted or introverted? If extraverted, then you're an extravert! If introverted, then you're an introvert!

    Keep in mind, though, INTPs tend to be THE introverts... Feeling functions, even in INFxs, usually bring some connection with others, in a similar way to how INTxs tend to give great attention to "external" facts and systems.
