    How much time do you have to spend alone? How frequently?
    I spend 95% of my time alone in my room, but I have been hating it a lot lately. On the first of the month I flew to Los Angeles to meet up with some friends (and to attend AX 2008) and I was around them nearly the entire four or five days. I did get to the point where I had to wander off by myself for a couple of hours. I felt light headed being in a room with so many people and nearly passed out while I was walking through the aisles.
    What does the required amount depend on?
    How much I am around people, how much I talk (I am generally a quiet person, to a lighter extent when around friends), and just how draining the other people are. It also depends on what is on my mind as well, if I have something on my mind that is bugging me I won't want to be around people at all, and will end up annoying them at how distant I seem.
    What do you do when you are alone?
    Listen ot music, watch anime, talk on IRC/IM, play computer games, browse the internet, think about random things.
    Do you ever feel you have been alone too long
    Now that I am back home I have been feeling very lonely. It was so much fun hanging out with friends that now I can only talk to via the internet and am stuck being back alone in my room for the most of my time.

My ENFP wife was hurt by that sometimes, that I didn't come home and pick her and the baby up first so they could go with me. I loved when they came with me, but sometimes I just didn't feel like going home first, I guess I needed to drive alone a bit to sort of collect myself before going home. She didn't really understand that, and I guess I didn't entirely understand it either.
    I drive alone all the time for relaxation/reflection/whatever. Sometimes people want to come along and they get offended when I tell them that I'd rather go alone. But I do it anyway!
