    Default Introverts: Are you energized by other Introverts?

    This just came to my mind. I realize that I become slightly energized around other introverts, but get exhausted around extroverts (the way we are supposed to). Does this happen to anyone else?

    Wait, I think this is what actually happened to me yesterday / today with you and MMAPF in IM, no?

    Maybe. A lot of extraverts have a tendency not to listen as well as they...could.

    If an introvert was around someone who actually wanted to listen to them, I'm sure they would have alot more to say.

    Typically us introverts get exhausted when around other people, we run out of our social energy. "As we should" was referring to the typical sensation we get when around people, but when I'm with introverts I don't get this sensation.

    Good response Chris, I would have never thought of that.

    Garg: I think it did indeed on IM. See? That's why you need to hop on more.

    Whether the other person is an E or an I, doesn't matter As long as it's human no difference.

    I think I'm energized by introverts for a moment, but on a longer run, I need my sweet solitude.

    I don't know that I would necessarily describe it as energized. I think it's more like calm and comfortable. I just feel like there is a more natural flow in the way I behave and act, I don't feel like intruding or being intruded upon really. I find myself being more accommodating as well. I generally find that we both give each other a lot of leeway and peace and don't mind sporadically popping in and out of things.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Something I've noticed is that when I'm around introverts who are more introverted than me, I can sometimes ease into the extrovert role. And for a little while, the whole "getting socially drained by people" doesn't apply.
