    LOL not vegan, I just don't underestimate glitter power. Plus, I could never rumple her sweet bunny fur, so disadvantage mine.

    @allegorystory You sound stunningly like a friend of mine, she is a dynamo. I marvel at her, she makes me look like a slug, and I am a bit of a maniac myself. Nice for you types.

    I am an extrovert who gets exhausted just by going to classes everyday.

    Does it, really! I didn't know that. I've heard that it can be tiring for INFJs but I get the sense that, with some INFJs, they're actually using Fe to protect themselves. And I thought it was tiring for me because I wasn't sufficiently adept at it. Very interesting.

    Right now I work full time and go to school (7 days a week, no days off) and somehow manage to party, study my ass off and not completely neglect my apartment's hygiene. People ask me all the time how I do it, but I guess it's just cause I'm a pretty laid-back person with a lot of energy. Seems to be a good combination.

    But I've certainly met low-energy extroverts and high-energy introverts before.
    Wowzers, that is a lot of energy. I'd have to come home some of those days and just sit in a dark room for a bit to recover :P. Is it because the partying re-energises you? Or do you just pull energy from the air?

    I'm another very low energy borderline-extravert. It very much makes me "look introverted." It's probably mainly a health issue. But on the other hand an extravert who has overall been kind of a social recluse (some of it due to the low energy in the first place) is of course going to have messed up energy levels

    Yeah...I definitely get energy from my social life, but not as much as I get from my studies (mainly: math and physics). I'm fortunate in that I've found something I really enjoy and MAN...it gets me PUMPED. And my work is really fun so that helps.

    I'm just really lucky and I think it's cool that I have the chance to make the most of it. Plus I hate being bored so it's good I pretty much have NO time for boredom.

    The difference between E and I regarding "energy" is not high or low, but whether the energy is focused outwardly or inwardly. So E may look high and I look low, because we on the outside are seeing what is bring directed outward.

    The temperament with Low energy would be the Phlegmatic. The others have energy that push them towards or away from people, in two dimensions (E/I and people/task). Still, in the translation to type, since everything must fall on one side or the other, Phlegmatic usually falls on the I and people-focused side.

    Here's the diagram of energy orientation I put together (horizontal is E/I, vertical is people/task):

    APS Profile: Inclusion: e/w=1/6 (Supine) |Control: e/w=7/3 (Choleric) |Affection: e/w=1/9 (Supine)
    Ti 54.3 | Ne 47.3 | Si 37.8 | Fe 17.7 | Te 22.5 | Ni 13.4 | Se 18.9 | Fi 27.9

    I wouldn't take my word for it if I were you. You have more Fe than I do.

    I'm quite up and down energy wise. I do the cycle thing someone mentioned, though I can turn on the energy if I really need to/want to. I guess I'd be described as more solid and strong before energetic. Don't think it has much to do with introversion, maybe something to do with Se... I don't know.

    Hmm...is using Fe tiring? It depends. I think it can be quite refreshing if things are sort of flowing naturally. It can be exhausting though. I've had jobs where I had to maintain calm and composure for long periods of time with difficult people. Unfortunately, I sometimes have to do it in my personal life too. (I only have one person in my personal life where it's a major drain at the moment, and I'm not expending too much on them currently, but even just one can be so draining.) That can be absolutely exhausting. Or my Fe starts to desert me. I feel like that has happened quite a lot lately. On here too.

    I'm pretty low energy generally. I genuinely think I am somewhat lazy but I also have low energy, it's a combination. I've always been like that. I can get big energy surges if I'm having fun (rock concerts really charge me up, that sort of thing) and especially when I travel... I've had times when I was leaving on a trip and I felt exhausted and even ill just before I leave, but then from somewhere comes the burst of travel energy, and it can be quite sustained. If I'm bored or frustrated that will drain me more. But when I get going I can keep going for quite a while.

    If some big output of energy is required from me I can keep going for quite a while once I get going. Sometimes there is really huge payback though. I do have days when getting out of bed is a major problem. Sometimes that has been when I'm somewhat depressed, to be sure. But for instance, I had a really crazy (probably ESFP) friend stay for a week recently. It was fun, we talked for hours and I laughed harder than I have in ages. But after she left...I was so tired for days that I was practically ill.

    And yeah, Fe is kind of a protective thing for me too, for sure. I think this also has to do with me being type 6 sp-first. We're supposed to be friendly to people partly as a sort of pre-emptive strike and that definitely applies to me.
