Thing is this was never something I wanted to do, but it was important for my health and well being. I can't think to myself unless everyone is gone. or unless there is some loud white noise blocking everything out.

    Well, before MBTI came along I always dubbed myself as an "Ambivert." But it would be nice if I fit into a category, because I'd at least know how to meet people who were just like me, which is pretty rare. The only friends I have who "stick around" are a plethora of INFJ's, one ISTJ and one ISTP. The rest are all acquaintences, and I have many, many acquaintances.

    If I wanted to I could stay indoors by myself for about a week and talk to no one, but I usually get really bored of that and have to at least skype or call someone on the phone eventually.
    Hmm, I don't know. Maybe you are extroverted.

    I'm an antisocial extrovert in most cases... I feel comfortable talking to anyone but if left to my own devices I tend to choose to be alone... similar to what jaguar said, my coworkers think that I'm rather antisocial and my parents (both serious introverts) think that I'm a social butterfly

    I can't really think unless I'm bouncing ideas off of others though... thinking by myself isn't as productive... not that I necessarily LISTEN to the other people that I'm using for idea bouncing, but it's just the act of getting things out there so that I can see the entire picture and how everything relates that makes it make sense... if I try it by myself I have to speak outloud and usually write things down, which can be rather awkward if in public

    extroversion and introversion are weird things

    OP, you sound a lot like me. I love hanging around people and interacting with them...but only for a while. After a while I start to get seriously drained and need to withdrawal and go do my own thing. If I'm not allowed to do that, then I start to get agitated and annoyed, and that's not pretty

    As far ESTPs, my ESTP roommate works two jobs and has a boyfriend she likes to spend time with. When she's not with him or at work, she's the epitome of sloth. She very much appreciates the fact that I keep cleaning up after her (even if that appreciation isn't reciprocated).

    I may or may not be an ESTP as I have trouble deciding, but I'll tell you this:
    I have a ton of energy. Usually I feel awesome, I listen to epic loud music, and I drive fast (in my wrangler). Thing is, for a while now I've felt I was an introvert. I'm so high energy that I feel like I tend to run out of energy after a while. It almost feels like an energy drink crash. I'll be at my friends house surrounded by friends, and I'll be the center of attention, but after a while I just lose it and start to peter out and I won't have any energy to talk to people anymore so I'll go play video games for the rest of the night. I'll want to hang out with them, but I lose energy so fast it makes me feel introverted even though I want to still hang out with them. I still can't seem to figure out if its because I need food, or if I'm an introvert. Ideas?
    based on this and some of your other posts, I think you are extremely ISTP

    I agree.

    To the XSTP in question, have you considered that it may just be a phase? I have an ESTP friend that is always bouncing off the walls, but even she eventually burns out. I'm very much I and she is very much E, and the main difference between when we burn out on people is how quickly it happens. 99% I will tire faster than she, but depending on the situation it might be easier for me to keep energized. Some of that also has to do with the differences between our NT and SP more so than our I and E differences, but that's another post.

    It's a spectrum, but if you're really curious about it. Ask some of the people you know to take the MBTI (if you haven't already, and also try to find one that gives percentages) and see which ones come up as extroverts and introverts. That should give you a good idea where you stand.

    For instance, I heard once that one way to tell an N from an S is by eye movement. N's tend to move their eyes around more. It isn't always easy to peg my ESTP friend as an S by that standard until you sit her next to her very good INTJ friend and then it becomes very clear.

I had an intense phase of that when I went to university; sadly that ruined a lot of hot parties for me, but the things I have learnt about myself thru introspection and the intrinsic absorption of new information made me grow up.

    I know that doesnt help you with your problem, I just wanted you to look beyond your own backyard and figure that life is way more complex as if introversion or extroversion could be ever pinpointed down that easily.
    right on the mark..

    and it also goes the other way around: when i'm social my Ne/Fe blossom, when i'l in soltitude my Ti/Si have their moments, although i am happier and more energized when i am in good company.

    I was an ISTP for the last few years, until recently I took socionics and came out as SLE-Se and Enneagram 8w9 which I agree with both. So now I'm starting to second guess my type, because MBTI just seems so shallow compared to Socionics. Its hard to ignore a system that tells you exactly what clothes you wear, and also tells you you're a gymnast (I am).

    MBTI is really shallow (you look like an introverted, that makes you an I, you look like a sensor, that makes you an S... etc.) So I have a feeling I could very well appear to be a myers briggs ISTP but deep down the gears turning inside of me are ESTp. I dunno its confusing. I'm reminded of the quote, "the more you know, the more you realize you know nothing."
