    ENTP alone time = they've annoyed everyone around them and no one wants to hang out with them.

    Ouch.

    I sort of have similar a problem. I like the idea of an alone time, in which I accomplish a lot of solitary activities - reading, writing, painting - but I have to be in a very specific mood to get there. My habit is to get online and talk to people or read back and forth between forums and the news really quickly .

    So basically I have no advice, I just understand your predicament. The only thing I can say is to force yourself to stay still when your mind starts to wander - or do multiple solitary things in a short amount of time, so you don't give yourself a chance to get bored.

    I'm most of the time alone, but I have the MSN messenger on. So I'm doing things on my own while I talk to somebody. I just need to have my mind active.

    It's not damaging my life per se, but it can certainly make particular situations unpleasant. It's also putting a damper on the development of my Ti function, which I feel needs development to be up to snuff with my Ne.
    Any other ENTPs struggle with this? Any suggestions?
    I'm in a somewhat similar situation, but not completely.

    I hate being alone for long periods of time. If it keeps up, I get drained of all energy and just walk around groggy and pissed off. A lot of my personality gets sucked out of me if I don't get out for a while, and won't really come back until I do. I also agree that using Ti is greatly aided by having others around. Other people's input helps stimulate my inner brainstorming process, and I tend to come up with much better ideas in groups.

    However, after a long time of socializing or any significant event, I actually need a good solid hour alone to process all the shit that just went down and figure out where I stand. I'm a steadfast extrovert, but I just can't deal with prolonged socialization without small breaks in between to deal with what just happened.

    Unfortunately I don't really have any suggestions on how to deal with being along for a while, it just sucks period. I usually use the opportunity to get some work done (for once) or take care of other obligations.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Too much alone time and I want to shoot myself in the elbow just to make something interesting happen, too little alone time and you'll see me mentally shut off in the middle of a crowded room and take it that way. I guess I prefer to just roll with it.

    Like right now, I've been stuck in freaken traffic for hours and as it looks will be for hours more. At first it was cool just listening to music and thinking but now here I am posting and driving. Which has nothing to do with this thread except it kind of does because I'm bored and say it does.

    But don't listen to me because I question my entpness, I think I'm more !?*) if you know what I mean. So yeah

    Like somebody said, I enjoy being alone as long as I don't realize I'm alone.
