    What about an extrovert would an ISTP put up with to enjoy socializing with them if they happen to be *too* talkative?

    I am accustomed to people slinking away due to my honesty. I'd try to talk to them again if I find their discussions interesting.

    I don't think in terms of too talkative or too quiet. If I find someone smart and interesting I enjoy socializing with them.
    I have never once met someone and thought they were 'too quiet'. If someone is quiet I assume they are smart and likely interesting.

    Personally, I'm pretty bad at maintaining friendships. I typically do the tit-for-tat thing so if the other party withdraws, I do so to. If they engage, then I engage.

    The extroversion / introversion slider isn't so important compared to having the a balanced amount of engagement / listening. One party talking all the time isn't a conversation; other party just nodding and not injecting any new information is equally one-sided. Small talk is pain but a necessary evil to doorway into interesting stuff.
