    In my head "yearn" sounds far too close to "urine." hehe

    Oh and yes mochajava that would definitely wear me out as well. Have you ever read "The Highly Sensitive Person," by Elaine Aron. If you haven't I highly, highly, did I mention highly, recommend it. What you said
    Here's the crux of it: other people close to you may not understand you (your withdrawal, your need for bed [sleepy/reading bed is what i'm referring to in this case, not sex-bed], your need for alone-time -- but they must respect and accept it. And it's okay to fight for that. To say, "no, I'm not going on a trip this weekend. My energy level is simply not there," and then go back to your book/run/nap/TV and not feel the least bit guilty. Hard, no? Imagine a sad significant other... but I guess that's why we are in this forum, having this dialog to better understand ourselves, then going over to the "Common issues among INFJs" thread and figuring out how other types see it and how to engage about it
    That above just made me think you had read it but if you haven't I think you'd really like it.

    I've read it -- someone recommended it to me some years ago. I think it's time for a re-read, and I'm happy you brought it up

    If anyone's interested, people have also recommended to me The Introvert Advantage (Laney), Introvert Power (Helgoe) & Party of One (Rufus). I haven't read them but they are on my book list.
