For me, it really depends.
Sometimes because I need time to think something over. I don't think that's a bad thing. It might be annoying to others, but I'd rather consider all the options and facts and make a really good decision than make a quick decision before I have the information I need and then end up regretting it later.
Sometimes because I'm bored. I retreat into my thought-world sometimes just because it's more stimulating to me than what's going on around me.
Sometimes to prevent being drained and stiffled. If I'm around people who are emotional vampires, I need a break away from them because I don't have an endless amount of energy and I don't think it's fair that they are demanding all of my energy and attention anyway. That's not my job.
Sometimes just for the sake of freedom. I tend to have interests that are different from most people and want time to think on and do things that I like that I feel I can't do with other people.
Sometimes for objectivity. Taking breaks from always being engaged can cause a healthy dettachment so you can be more objective and have a broader perspective, to see the big picture rather than getting sucked into something and becoming narrow-minded.
