    Question INTs how often do you "run away" from socializing ?

    I am curious how other INTs behave when they don't want to hang out with people but they "have too" .


    When I was younger I had a tendency to just leave when people start to have fun. Often even without saying "goodbye" to anyone.
    I simply vanshed, so often people were thinking that something happened to me when they realized I am no longer around.


    Even today I can do something similar to this and people think it is wierd.
    It is nothing personal it is just that I am really bored in most of those situations.

    I used to sneak off and never developed the skill of the "open extraction" until my 30's, as a social courtesy.

    Usually people would go to talk to me, then wonder why I had disappeared.

    Oh I do this all the time. For instance, my professor was having a party a while back, and I showed up for courtesy, but after about a half-hour of having to mingle and talk about nonsense, I just sort of edged my way to the door and slipped out, unnoticed and unannounced. I do it sometimes in class as well.

    During family gatherings, my intj hides upstairs under the covers of a guestroom bed like a cat.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    lots of different reasons, I guess:
    • I felt ignored/invisible, which hurt.
    • I'd quickly get exhausted from socializing and have to go recharge.
    • I'd feel anxiety because I was afraid of doing/saying the wrong thing and making someone mad or myself look stupid.
    • I'd get bored and not be interested in the current discussions.
    • I didn't like the people who were there.
    • I was already depressed about stuff in my life and just didn't really want to be around people but had been forced to go.
    • I had other things on my mind that I couldn't stop thinking about (a project of some sort, usually).


    Stuff like that.

    I would always leave the dinner table early when I was younger to go up in my room and think. (or watch TV in another room)

    I try avoid any type of gatherings. I never invite people to my place. If someone I know is walking towards my direction and I'm moving towards theirs I change my direction to avoid the possibility that that person would talk to me. When I'm invited to any outings I make excuses not to go.
