    Not energized, but another introvert is less draining of energy and tolerance, allowing for more time to pass before the need to escape arrives. Another benefit is that the extra time spent is always more enjoyable. Another INTP or an INTJ for non-stop conversations, an ISTJ for grounding in reality, and an INFJ for conversation that starts and stops, but with no awkward discomfort during the silence.

    If we are discussing an exciting idea, sure. Otherwise, I'd say the exchange is more stable over a longer time period, than with extroverts. Not necessarily energizing.

    Maybe you see them more similar to you and get some kicks out of the realization?

    I don't think there is a change in my attitude in the way you describe it. I can get very uncomfortable with some introverts, in a way that rarely happens with extroverts. It's like, if I see the introvert is being in a certain defensive attitude, I can't be myself and it is more straining than being with extroverts. It can come down to a situation where I need to force myself to be the extrovert because I see they are uncomfortable and I need to make them more relaxed and blaah blaah blahhhh... It is very unpleasant. On the other hand, there are some extroverts that I am very comfortable with, they don't seem to strain me at all.

    So, I think it has a lot to do with how comfortable you are with the people.

    Despite a common belief, not every extroverts are energized by any other extroverts.

    In fact, we're a bit like psychic vampires, we often prefer to feed on you, introverts!

    True, it is much more safe to feed on the fangsless.

    If by "other introverts" you mean "methamphetamine," then yes.

    Not really.
    When I want to be with people, I'll be with Extroverts. When I want to be alone, I'll be alone.
    When I am with my Introvert friend I can be just as drained as when I am with Extroverts. The only difference is that he understands this, as we both need quiet time, and we'll both give space and time to each other. Some Extroverts don't fully get why one would need some alone time.

    Yes... plus the fact you have this wonderful ability to keep me focused, despite my wild frantic Ne outbursts...

    Sometimes, but when I need to be alone, I need to be alone. Very energetic extroverts seem to wear me out a bit quicker on average, but they are fun. I feel more comfortable with other introverts. Sometimes extroverts feel too intrusive, whereas introverts are less likely to overwhelm me.
    I think I'm saying essentially the same thing that lastrailway said, but in slightly different terms.
