    I hate being called arrogant. It's really annoying. If you have researched an idea sufficiently, there shouldn't really be a reason to hide it if the situation arises.

    If I ask for space, it's not because I'm suffocating or needing my introverted room to reflect, it's usually due from getting pissed off by the offender.
    I won't comment on the recharging terminology, but I can attest to the fact that I just cannot take prolonged social contact, even when I enjoy it. If I spend most of the day with friends doing something fun, I prefer to have the next day "off", or with a good chunk of alone time. When I am staying with relatives or having houseguests at my place, I have to find time now and then to do something solitary, even if it is staying up after everyone else has gone to bed to read a book. When I attend a conference for several days in a row, I am just worn out when I get home, especially if I also spent evenings having dinner with colleagues, even though I probably enjoyed every minute. Being among lots of people even when I don't really have to interact much is tiring - as in spending the day in planes and airports while travelling, or being out shopping in crowded stores/malls.

    Conversely, I have yet to be alone long enough to become truly restless for company. I am curious now how long that would take.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Never?? Wow.

    Restless for company -- interesting. I only get restless for company if I know it's on the horizon. Otherwise, my reaction to being alone too long is to feel drained and lethargic. In contrast, when I need alone time I get quiet and irritable, losing patience instead of energy.
