Introverts, they just need to be alone for awhile.

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They are not angry, depressed or anti-social. They just need to be alone for awhile. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.”
