    @shortnsweet Same here. I get tired whenever I have to do something I don't wanna do. I can spend an entire day having nothing to do at work, and then go home tired, only to lay around and let my mind roam around as a relief.. even if that's what I did all day anyway. It's the act of being costrained that wears me out, even if it may be an extraverted activity.

    Yeah, it seems too that a lot of the mind wandering starts with external extroverted activities. Things that I did and saw leading on a line of trying to make sense of what I did and saw and then some other lines of thought. It doesn't come from within, it comes from outside.

    i may have answered already but i don't feel like looking...but i'm realizing that i really don't need alone time...i just need time where i can do whatever i want. there can be a whole house full constantly as long as they're not all expecting to be engaged.

Distinguishing Introvert/extrovert gets confusing except in the case of outliers.

    The only possible reasoning I've come up with is that extroverts who need a lot of time alone maybe don't like people that much and withdraw (?)
    It's also difficult to tell the difference between an introvert who doesn't like people and an introvert who is truly more energized by being alone.
    This is because the overwhelming majority of people are actually ambiverts.

    Really? What makes you think this?

    I've often considered myself an ambivert, but I seem to score exeedingly higher that other people on this forum in extroversion traits with disc, big 5, etc. I also watch the type-me videos, and about 80% of the self-typed Extroverts seem rather introverted to me. Yet still, cognitively speaking.. I do believe I am more of an ambivert.. So I am interested in why you might think this. =D

    on any MBTI test I take, I score almost exclusively introverted. Big 5 on the other hand I score high as hell on extroversion, probably because extroversion on the big 5 is behavioral and can be learned. frankly, the behaviors associated with extroversion on the big 5 are much more advantageous, so I probably adopted them unconsciously with that in mind

    I didn't read this thread. I didn't even read the OP. I'm just answering the title...by saying I need ridiculous amounts of alone-time. And I always have.
