    I'm not charged by introversion but I have a longer lasting battery for it, and it gets charged by being around people for a while.

Time alone just restores me to a normal, non-stressed state.
    I lived in a city where I needed to use a lot of public transportation, and I found out a way to like it. I watched people and started thinking about how they are and what they are doing, where they are coming from. It actually started to feel energizing.

    According to Keirsey, that makes you an extrovert.

    Yes, give my some solitude, preferably doing something I enjoy, and it does energize/recharge me. It's needed fairly often.

    Being social increases my need for introversion much more than introversion increases my need to be social and extroverted.

    Not so much solitude as uninterrupted focus.

    Agreed. I don't mind people as long as they're not bothering me. In that case, they just become background noise.

    People generally think I'm extremely lethargic, but they don't note how much I tend to get done when I'm alone. I don't know if I'm energized by being alone, but other people suck out my energy like vampires... and I'm much more energetic when I'm alone.

    Does solitude energise me? nope, the opposite is true. Socialising energises me but then I need solitude to recover.

    Yes, I am much more motivated when I'm alone. And when I say alone, I mean knowing that I'm alone, not that I'm necessarily physically alone. I can be on a bus with thirty other people and still be completely alone.
