Is it intuition or perception or?

I am not shy, I am not emotionally sensitive, but the mere physical presense of another human wears me out. It is if I have some subconscious mechanism that is switched "on" by other people just being in my space. An involuntary awareness that I can't "tune out", when activated for very long exhausts me.

I'm wondering if this is common with INTP, and would be interested in thoughts about whether this is related to intuition, perception, or just random strangeness (I have lots of that).

Thanks for any thoughts.

While I am fascinated with certain people, prolonged interaction drains me. In the presence of other humans, even when we are discussing an interesting subject, I feel my energy gradually decreasing as time progresses, which is frustrating for me. Perhaps this is an introvert problem but I assume our other cognitive functions interplay, e.g. the balance of cognitive preferences.

Dominant: Introverted Thinking
Auxiliary: Extraverted Intuition
Tertiary: Introverted Sensing
Inferior: Extraverted Feeling
