I'm an introvert in that I need recharge time, like some time alone every day etc...but I also feel like some degree of social interaction is needed, and I tend to get weird when I don't have it, and actually miss it.
How about this definition for introversion as it applies to the Jungian/Myers-Briggs model?
The distinguishing feature of introversion, as opposed to extraversion, is that whereas the latter relates primarily to the object and data originating in the outside world, introversion finds it orientation in inner, personal factors.
Naturally, an introverted consciousness can be well aware of external conditions, but subjective determinants are decisive as the motivating forms. While the extravert responds to what comes to the subject from the object (outer reality), the introvert relates mainly to the impressions aroused by the object in the suject (inner reality).
