    No. For me it really isn't. I feel very unfeeling at times because of that.

    Depends on what you mean by that, if you mean people who have no E/I preference then anyone who uses cognative functions is ruled out, if you mean socially withdrawn or other such things then I expect most ENTPs are that way, which makes it quite normal.

    Nope. It's pretty easy. For most things, anyway.

    I'm an only child with a working single mum who grew up in a neighbourhood with no kids. I'm pretty comfortable spending LOTS of time by myself (and, in fact, prefer it in a lot of instances). Sometimes I would rather sit at home and read a book than go to a party and after a long day at work, I rarely want to go out and be with more people. But I AM extroverted, there's no doubt in my mind about that. I need external stimulus to be at my happiest/best/craziest, but that doesn't necessarily have to come in the form of social interaction. Social interaction I actually find to be pretty tedious most of the time. Very few people seem receptive to talk about anything that I find interesting and I get bored easily with them. But I'm extroverted about my ideas and around interesting people. It's a weird dichotomy, I guess. How can someone be extroverted and not really enjoy being around most people? Who knows...

    Know myself in what way? I'd say it's a very small number of people who can claim they "know" themselves fully. I'm comfortable and pretty happy with myself and I think that's about as close as I'm gonna get.

    I don't dwell on things with a morbid persistence; I instinctively let go/move on. Are you thinking about something specific?

    To me, Ne is really the extraverted function like the name indicates. For inspiration, I need observations. I can't just sit still and come up with something. Going for a walk, going to the grocer's, doing chores... as long as I'm not staring at a blank screen, I can come up with the most wonderful stories.
    If I've got an inkling of an idea and I want to work it out, the best method is doing it actively. Not just trying to think it through, but e.g. drawing, writing key words, even a calculation (yes, really... if I want a flat world with a sun orbiting around it, how will this affect the days and the seasons? By the way, the answer is "too much" - it wouldn't look anything like our world) can help.
    Other people are the best! They provide not only great observation material but also feedback.
    ENTPs are in their most "extraverted" ways if they are allowed to Ne (<- I love English, you can make a verb from every word), if they don't have to "socialize" in a traditional way.

    Depends. I think I'm fairly moderate in that aspect - remembering past friendships and relationships from time to time, feeling sad or thankful or both.

    If you look at the functions, I'm a clear E. (Ne first )
    If you look at the usual E/I description, I'm more in the middle. I get drained by interaction as often as I get energized by it. And I'm not the only one. There have been E/I NTP discussions scattered among the forum, also in this thread. Lots of ENTPs experience draining interactions and the need to be alone. I suspect the difference lies in when we're allowed to let our Ne loose or not. If we're expected to socialize and talk about the kids, we can keep that up for a while (yay Tert Fe!) but we don't like it. Even now I've got a baby and I still prefer to talk about literature/science/...
    A facebook status about the baby gets more likes than anything else - and then I'm totally puzzled. Come on, what's so interesting about another woman's baby? Aren't you interested in my book that's available now?

    Puzzled by emotions when they mess up my thoughts, but on the whole, I think I know myself fairly well.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!
    I'm female. I just can't draw women

    yes. Tho I tend to say I am a serial monogamist, the killing always took me more than 5 years. I only had two serious long relationships so far and the first one I needed 4 years to get over with, tho I dumbed her.

    yes F/T, I suck at Fi but I can have strong Fe-primary traits, like being a host and cooking or organizing social events. (I am not really good at any of these and dont like it thats why I dont think I am a Fe-primary)

    Tho this answer is in direct violation with my last answer: yes
