    would i want to do that? doesn't sound like a bad way to spend an evening...but ....no i wouldn't have done it....wouldn't have cared that you wanted to though.
    That is all, you have done everything I asked for.

    The point is how Es react to this kind of behaviour or what they think about it.

    I don't see anything strange about that. I like to party but not all the time, I like sitting under the stars and chilling on my own just as much, and I'd rather do that than go to a party that was gonna be lame or maybe just not my kind of party. If I was there the next day and people were criticising you for not going to the party I'd be on your side and tell them to get stuffed, you're entitled to do your thing if you want and you weren't harming anyone. If they were moaning at you saying you were irresponsible from a personal safety point of view, I'd laugh at them and make jokes about killer squirrels or something.

    ^^ agreed...would've totally defended your right to do that instead...i might have done that with someone if they wanted to...but i love a good party too...good meaning there are people i'm interested in hanging out with.

    I prefer to be alone when I explore the wilderness or anywhere else, frankly, otherwise people tend to shunt me into leader mode and I'm too busy anticipating everyone's needs and iminent spazz attacks and how to circumvent them, to notice the cool shit around me, or they just don't STFU so I can't like, hear the birds. And I can't just follow my nose cos I've got to account for what they want to do/see etc.

    If I go somewhere with other people I prefer to go places I've already been, so my first impression of a place is more complete cos I'm able when alone to completely tune into the external environment and totally grok its essence. Not if I've got some schmuck nagging in my ear that they're hungry and can we go get a pint now and no I can't be bothered to walk down there and can I borrow your gloves? lol

    ^^ haha...yes there certainly are some people who could ruin such an experience...but imo others that could enhance it.

    Introspecting and intraspecting are two mental activities I not only engage in often and greatly enjoy but that I heavily depend on in order to establish and reinforce a dynamic anchored Self that keeps me centered, facilitating within me, a sense of harmony and understanding amidst this chaotic experience we call life/existence.

    I enjoy thinking about a multitude of different things, sometimes in solitude, and other times while in the company of others.

    As an extrovert, and as a human being who cares about human beings, I happen to enjoy engaging, as well as observing my fellow human beings.

    This is overall an inefficient method (especially for what an ENTP is interested in). The most efficient method is to talk with someone who is very knowledgable in the field you are interested in. Not only can they tell you about the writings of some "great thinker", but they can synthesize the writings of several books together in the discussion and give their own educated opinions. Also they can answer any specific question you have about the topic.

    For me this is usually enough, because for most topics I don't want to know every single detail about it. I just want a broad understanding of the underlying concepts. Reading a book would be a waste of time. Now if I do want to know all of the details, then I'll go look them up in a book, but usually I don't care enough to bother with them.
