Do you gain energy from alone time, or from spending time with a bunch of people?

I gain different energies from both, I either get fed up with being alone with my thoughts or talking to people too much, so I balance both out, on social media though I’m active a lot which compensates for when I’m not outside with a group of people as I meet new friends

Same. I also have a hyper-social job. So when I get home from work I need a lot of alone time to achieve balance. But it can’t be too much alone time. (Which is why I recently moved into a collective with 5 other adults. So, it can be relatively easy for me to just go into our kitchen/living room and just hang out).

I also have a solid history of being very active on forums/social media etc which works well to stimulate the need for contact with others when I’m physically alone.

Oddly enough, I could go either way. Depends upon my mood and what I find when I get there. I usually plan my group outings very carefully. I decide when I show up, I make certain I can leave whenever I choose, and I completely manage my level of interaction. If I find interesting people to converse with, I'll extend my time. If not, I'll leave as quickly as the novelty wears off.

I hate conventions. Too much overstimulation for me. I prefer groups of people below 50. I want to experience them all (unless they are boring, then I want to be somewhere else).

Somewhere in the middle. If the people around me are boring, I just think about all the fun things I could be doing solo..

Really extroverted. My best 'fun' experiences are the workshops were you throw hunderds of participants that they were not knowing one each other to organize themselves into small teams focused in proposing solutions for specific objectives. Are you familiar with Hacking Health - Hacking Health ?, so that style... (there are many other platforms beside HH).

50% people guessed me INTP so I might come off introverted, but I know I am Extraverted anyway

I used to be quite extroverted thanks to a strong Sx motivation and no luck in the love life department. However one I met my INFJ wife I became much more introverted as you would expect with an E5.

I voted 'More Extrovert'.
My social interactions are most commonly with 5 to 15 persons, although on occassions I am part of larger functions with up to 50 people.

Within my smaller circle of friends and social groups, I tend to get a lot of energy from the interactions and I usually end up being the person everybody wants to be around. Friends call it charisma etc, but I become so enthusiastic from all the stimuli, I just get on a roll and go with it. Suffice to say, afterwards I crash and burn for the next day or two - the classic ENTP withdrawel to recover from the excitement; aka Ambivert behaviour = Introversion.

With bigger groups of people or in a more formal environment, I usually scan the crowds and 'target' prospective sets of people who have gravitated into smaller clumps. I just have an intense desire to discover what topic or interest brought random people together and how they are interacting, especially if they are new to each other.
I can roam between all these unique groups at a larger function out of pure curiosity, yet I am quite subdued in terms of my own sense of extroversion - I go into a kind of stealth mode whilst i'm soaking up all the Ne in the space around me. Naturally, all this information overload can also burn me out - again I go into Introvert mode to analyse all the sensory input until I can come up for air.

In summary, highly extroverted in smaller interactions, but more Ambiverted behaviour in larger interactions.

Who knows if I'm an ENTP, but if I am.... this. sometimes I itch to be with others. and just as often (or maybe more often) I just want to shut myself into a cave and be alone.
