First, this was a really interesting post. I never even considered a mechanism for extroversion that was like this. Certain ENTP traits are beginning to make much more sense to me.
Ne needs initial input. Observations, data, something to act as a starting point to feed the monster. Would you say that without something for Ne to chew on and digest, your mind starts churning onto itself?I need to be distracted from my own brain in order to find peace. I need outside stimulation in order to calm down. I have to focus on one thing (or really, it's the act of trying to ignore the thing) in order to keep my thoughts contained. Sort of like meditation.
