    Default A Question for Extroverts

    I was just wondering if extroverts ever feel the need to get away from people to recharge their batteries the way that introverts do. Or is being around people really a source of energy.

    Thoughts?

    Yes, I do. More as I get older. What were you like when you were young.

    Is this about you? INFJ and ENFJ seem very different.

    Everyone needs to get away sometimes.

    Yeah I do as well, may be its just that introverts do it more and for longer periods of time than extraverts.

    I think that its kinda comparable to an Introverts need to at least occasionally socialize. I doubt even they want to be alone constantly

    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.

    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.

    Thoughts?

    I generally like to be on my own and choose be around people when I need a charge.
