    Did people see you as introverted during your childhood years?

    1. I need to interact with people AND alone time. Sometimes I feel like I'm introvert and extrovert simultaneously. If I'm in the presence of "idea people" i get alot of energy, but everyone else who doesn't feed Fe actually DRAINs my energy. I also hear alot of ENTPs complain about social nuance and shit in RL that seems irrelevant to "the good stuff" in convos.

    2. I was more nerdy as a child, although not completly. I was drawn to athletic and intellectual stuff with equal *humph*

    3. I spent a lot of time observing the world, not just talking about them.

    4. To this time I still need time to think my discoveries over to come up with new plans so I can explore territories I haven't seen before until i gained the knowledge from "mulling things over"

    5. I need "thinking time" not just social time.

    If you have any stories in childhood were you seeemed more itnroverted, plz share.

    I can't really relate. As a kid I was never mistaken for an introvert. I got "Talks too much and disrupts her neighbors" on pretty much every report card. I would jump up on stage and sing. Randomly make friends with kids at the park. However, I am like you describe now as an adult. The change from extreme extrovert to borderline extrovert started in early college.

    I did those things to, but nobody piad much attention to me growing up. I acted up in class. Talking? Ehhh. Sorta. I just didn't pay attention.

    I had a gang of friends during my childhood years at school, not a large circle, but a more introverted style where I would get energy from the same several people on a frequent basis

    I was more INTPish as a child. I was raised in a very SJ culture so I think my Ne dom nature was subdued. I was also bullied as a child. As soon as I hit 12-13 however, my Ti came into play and I became loud, argumentative and disruptive in class. I really did not gaf.

    As a small child I was super extroverted, up until about middle school. Then I started getting bullied a lot and was really socially awkward so I was mistaken for an introvert up until I was about 19. Turning 21 was a big help, as was moving out, so I started hanging out in bars on a regular basis and moved into the city so it was easier to get out every day.

    There's definitely never a day when I don't crave human interaction. But it often seems frustrating and counterproductive, because talking to most people drains me almost as much as being alone drains me. Most people are so boring and stupid. So I end up going out seeking social interaction, giving up after half an hour and just going back home to sulk. This is why bars are preferable, because it's often easier to get people to talk about interesting things and play on the interactions between multiple drunk people.

    Super outgoing and exictable kid, to really awkward and depressed teenager who had his moments to very outgoing and social, but selective of the company I choose to keep now.

    I mean, I need "me-time" too, but not to recharge, but to pursue some of my interests (music production, lifting weights, DJ'ing, learning shit).

    There are some things that you do best alone. I was raised in huge SJ culture, so that explains some of my problems. My "Me time" involves pursuing intellectual interests and escaping the tedious aspects of day to day life that bore me.

    Yes, sometimes. I was/am pretty social but I didn't mind being alone either and I wouldn't usually go out of my way just to hangout with people. Extrovert percievers like us require external stimulation but that doesn't have to involve people.

    Exactly, sometimes activities are more energizing than certain people.

    TBH, I've spending a lot of time with my family this Summer. My mom is ISFJ and my dad is ESTJ. I talk to them sometimes, but they're more industrious than scientific.

    I find my friends more energizing than family members. Certain people energize me better than others. My attitude towards life is lax and my family is strict.

    Probably explains this post a bit why I've been more seclusive these last few weeks. I've been exploring my introverted side, especially Ti where I categorize information. Don't get me wrong, I like "creating/finding" information more than organizing it, but organizing what I learn can be very fun too
