    I NEED my alone time at least

    once everyday. I spent ALL day at school with thousands of students so when I get home I close myself in my room. It's exhausting being around so many people

    I'm a homebody, no doubt about it.

    I go to parties but I get bored easily. I love to stay home by myself and curl up with some hot chocolate and read some John Grisham.

    I value my time alone.

    I HOARD IT! It's bad when you look forward to being sick so you can be alone. I live with three other people: my mother, my sister and her daughter. Oh yeah, we have a dog. I seldom have the time to be alone because I am my 81 year old mother's caregiver (she has alzheimer...

    It's nothing personal against anyone I care

    about, but sometimes I just want to be left alone in peace and quiet. it's relaxing especially after a long hard day.

    I really do. I have a lot of mates

    and could be with company all the time. But I'm most comfortable when alone, it gets boring and I start doing random things or nothing at all but I feel it's what I need and am unable to explain it.

    I Like To Be A Part Of Group?

    I am in a social network (not FACEBOOK) which constantly post a party or a meeting. I have been in that circle about few years, but actually, I have never attended any of them. Then, I thought, Do I like to spend time with them? or Do I like to stay home to do what ever I like...

    I know that it is often looked down upon

    or not understood, but I cherish my alone time. I can process my thoughts, relax, read, whatever I want to do, because my time is my own. I guess the main thing is that I struggle with things in my life, and I feel like not very many people understand me. I have issues with...

    I am empathetic: I feel others feelings.

    Mostly in person, but sometimes online to. If someone is mad, it can make me mad or sick. If they hyper, it is hard for me to relax. If they are depressed, i can cry for no reason. If someone is emotionally confused or unstable, it can really drain me. I like to spend time...

    When I was at the collage,

    I wanted to be more open to people because I was super shy (INFP). But whenever bunch of friends gathered and had lunch or grabbed a drink, I couldn't take it for hours. I usually went to restroom and listened my music in there. I was always the first one to leave at the...

    I think it can be viewed

    as a personality flaw to admit that you like spending time alone. We live in a society that celebrates being an extrovert and being as social as possible. I enjoy going out and having a good time with friends. Yet I need a certain amount of time each day to myself. I usually put...
