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.
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.
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.
