    I think this is an ENFP thing
    I'm making an effort to structure my answers to people more objectively and it seems to be helping.

    If someone doesn't answer I just figure they don't want to and I leave them alone. I would never harass someone or pry but I also acknowledge that there is a price to pay for remaining distant (lack of intimacy and closeness) and both parties will feel/experience that.

    I have a lot of ISFj friends, and I know they like to ask those sometimes excessively prying questions even just as a way to keep the conversation going.

    What I usually do when I start thinking meeehh too many questions is saying something slightly nonsensical to just divert their attention, like "why were you out so late?" "because my clock's battery died and all the shops were closed and I spent time searching for an open one but didn't know what time it was so it ended up being late" or something like that. Then they roll their eyes and the conversation can start again.

    My INTJ roommate is the queen of evasive answers, even about the most trivial things. It drives me bananas.

If someone detects the evasion and confronts me directly (this is rare), I will sometimes refuse directly. Or, depending on the topic, I might give them the answer as bluntly as possible, which always produces an entertaining reaction from them, causing them to regret asking in the first place.
    I have done a lot of this, almost exactly. As I get older, I really have less patience with people being evasive and I don't do it very often anymore either. Not without a reason. I'm more likely to be blunt, say the topic isn't up for discussion at this time or abrupt dismissal when they press.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    See, that I can totally deal with. I understand that I can be nosey and some things just aren't my business. If you don't want to talk about it, just say so. My roommate will start asking hypothetical questions and go on with "well why do you want to know?" and "what would you say if I told you I was doing xyz?"

    In your particular case it does seem like an Si thing (or more specifically Ne-inf. thing), though many people don't like evasiveness in general, it seems like it causes you anxiety because it forces you to think of what might've happened rather than add to your understanding of what happens.

    Yes, some people are just evasive and hiding stuff, but some people just aren't as comfortable with focusing with the details of a happening as you, as an S-dom, are. For us N-doms, it can be downright impossible.
