    It doesn't apply to all situations - when I'm around a small number of friends and can stay pretty quiet, I do okay, chatting one-on-one I do fine, and in public places like on a bus or when I'm "on task", and can focus on what I'm doing and not anyone around me, I'm fine. But put me in any sort of high-energy social-type situation with lots of people around, and I burn out very quickly, get anxious, and start looking for an exit.
    Being mentally relaxed doesn't mean that you have no energy. On the contrary, it is when I'm feeling the most relaxed that I have the most mental energy. If a situation makes me anxious, it will inevitably drain my mental and physical energy.

    I cant relate that to introvertism. Cause there are social gatherings that drain the energy out of me aswell.

    Guess that is more a "what-kind-of-people-you-hang-around-wth" thing.

    entropie has a look around... I feel drained...

    I find if I spend too much time on my own I become withdrawn, being around others helps keep things light and enjoyable... then I need to recover, yup, kinda like social exercise.

    The most important fact with introverts is, the really important things, they never hear xD

    I seek out people sometimes, but then I don't speak to them. I just like being near the human energy. I have to have a lot of private time to feel even remotely able to confront the external world. My Se is a very weak leg.

    The only person whose company doesn't drain me is husband, but if he's into a super Fe rant type period, he'll drain me too and I'll irritate him when I am into a hyper Ne period. But other than that, even if I enjoy the people's company very much, there's only so much I can take.
