    Default Extroverts, how often do you need time to yourself?

    Under what circumstances do you not want any more interaction? How often, if ever, do you withdraw to recharge? If you never tire of people that you like, then what about people who are unpleasant or who don't understand you?

    I withdraw due to anhedonia and anxiety. I can't socialize anymore without eventually thinking "what am I gaining from this?" There's no novelty, there's no excitement, there's no improvement, there's no intensity. Just a circle-jerk of close minded people smoking weed and talking about basketball in a boring apartment.

    I wouldn't call it 'time for myself', but I just don't like having people around when I'm on the toilet. Idk, I call that privacy. Apart from that I never need time for myself.

    I know, right? Me too. Just reading that made me want to lock myself up in my bathroom to get more privacy.

    I find that feeling excluded/awkward drains my energy extremely quickly, as does meeting new people who don't seem too enthusiastic about my company. Because of this I think a lot of people are surprised that i'm an extrovert (i'm not horribly loud either!)--but when i'm comfortable with people I can stay the whole day with them and wish I didn't have to go home even at 12am, for weeks on end. it's nearly like having good powerups and bad energy-sink traps!

    More and more as I get older. I can relate to what @Stansmith said about needing to get out of stagnate-feeling situations where I feel unfulfilled by the conversation or people there. That makes me crave intimate and deep conversation or research usually. If I feel that I don't have a choice in what I do in a certain setting, I usually want to get out and be on my own. I have a tendency to wander off by myself when I'm out places with groups of people. A little personal adventure is often exactly what I need, and then I'm ready to rejoin for a while.

    A lot of time, I'll go go go and then my mind kind of demands down time. I do a lot of reflecting and deep thinking, and can kind of get stuck there if I've neglected my need for it for too long. I wound up depressed because of that a few years ago, and have since tried to build quiet reflection time into my life so that I don't wind up desperate for it.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
