    Totally true. Except I refuse to call it sulking. Sulking sounds more like sitting in your chamber endlessly muttering about the person/situation who hurt/annoyed you, while what you're actually doing is trying to get rid of that person/situation both physically and in your mind. To me, withdrawing is like taking a mental shower - trying to get back to the real you and clean off the shit that others try to throw on you.

    I don't think it's just an INTP thing. I think a lot of withdrawn/& introverted types do it and I think IXXP types are more prone to it than those of other MB types.

    I used to be guilty of it. I think i still do it but to a lesser extent, and a lot of times it's an automatic reaction.

    Come to think of it I think I withdraw even when I'm with other people. Just mentally. Or maybe it's just me being slightly scizo, one of us keep making conversation while the others retreats to our inner sanctuary. And then we can switch places after a while, take shifts in dealing with boring people...

    Edit: I really shouldn't even utter myself in this thread, I'm certainly not "younger"...
