While I crave social interaction, I find it (usually) quite draining. I often wonder if it drains the other. I wonder how obvious the succ is.

I can't stand people, a person is ok though. I find that extroverts tend to fall victim to group think and mob theory. I never understood that, and when I find myself in a large group situation I end up feeling completely overwhelmed. I typically find every reason I can to leave or go off by myself as soon as I can. I feel completely drained with in a few minutes if there is more than 5 people. I'm also A.D.D. so lots of action going on around me make me want to run away.
It's all exhausting to me, but my wife is a extrovert so loves that crap. She is that social butterfly person. Everyone wants to talk to her and she wants to talk to every one. I have no idea how she does it.

I don’t crave social interaction. I can only handle a couple people as well. I can remember times when I was draining to others but I was not aware of it at the time.


Depends on the people I'm with. People who are needy of attention are draining to me. I don't think I am draining on the other because I am less needy. I am usually more of the giver, if you will. Sensitive people will notice if they are draining. Extroverts have no clue about whether or not they are sucking someone's energy.


Someone I know and love can wear me out. Just depends on how quiet they are.

Oh, absolutely. I think that's a common reaction for introverts. The craving for social interaction may be more unusual, unless you mean in small groups.

I'm going away next month for a long weekend with family (so people I know well) and about fifteen of us are all staying in the same house. I'm already bracing myself for the the stimulation overload, and will probably need a week to recuperate afterwards. But you're wondering if it's obvious to those who are over-stimulating us? Oh yeah. Perhaps not to someone who doesn't know me, but definitely those who do.
