Does being around a lot of people make you tired?

I usually work at home and today I had to work in the office. I am exhausted, it is like being around 23 people all day is draining. I know it probably is because I am not a people person. But I have been exhausted since 4:30

  • Yes, I tend to like working independently or in small groups of people I know well. Working with more people was ok sometimes as long as I had some time to myself to reflect and just think at some point during the day. I would probably feel drained in that situation too, especially if I had been used to working on my own most days.

  • yes my husband doesn't understand it when i want to leave his family functions early. i just don't like being cramped in a house full of people with noise and a bunch of kids running around.

  • Ugh yes!! I hate crowded situations too. Give me one or two people - or preferably by myself - and I am a productive worker. Too many and it gives me a headache. I am not a people person either!!

  • Melody 77 I feel the same way. Only I came from a very big family and no one gets it. But I know how you feel and definitely it is draining especially around the holidays!!!!!

  • You're are an introvert. Being tired and feeling people can suck the life right out of you is a characteristic of being introverted.
