Putting the "I" in "INFJ"

Most of the time, I do such a good job at being sociable that it can be hard to tell that I'm an introvert. But I am; and every once in a while, I just get worn out dealing with people. Like 'em, hate 'em, doesn't matter, they just exhaust me. This is intensified when forced to deal politely with people being stupid, crass, out to lunch, or just really really childish, all of which has happened in the past week, sometimes all at the same time.

The unreasonably nice weather this weekend helped a bit, but as of this morning, my "dealing with people" reserves are still very low. Fortunately, I have Wednesday off from work to prep for AC, but in the meantime, if I seem distant, harsh, or flightly, I beg your indulgence in advance. I'm not angry, depressed, or feeling down -- I simply have limited affability reserves, and right now they are depleted. I should be in much better form by AnthroCon if not sooner.
