i think balance is important...i don't recall the feeling of oh...i have to get away these people are wearing me out but...i like to be with people and engaged for a bit then go off and do something alone...i wouldn't want a constant companion to accompany all of my activities.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
I do feel that way--alone time is important. I really enjoy it when it's "happy alone time", I'm living inside a book or I'm pursuing an interest or something like that.
I don't like it when I'm "closing in on myself" because I'm unhappy, & my reaching out ability is impaired, I don't have energy for it, & I wish my really good friends would reach out to me, it seems odd to call them up or write them & say "woe is me!" So I guess that's the negative side of Fi.
