Introverted people prefer less stimulation. They are highly sensitive to input through the five senses; hence, they require relatively little sensation before they’re had enough. Moreover, they are easily distracted by the senses. Bright lights and loud noises can wear out introverted people. (Howard, Pierce J., PhD. The Owner’s Manual for the Brain. p 701. GA: Bard Press, 1994, 2000.)

Couples with differing needs for stimulation need to accept them, knowing that they don’t indicate anything personal. Just as people need to accept different requirements for salt on food, so they need to accept differences in the need for stimulation. (Ornstein, Robert, PhD. The Roots of the Self. p 58-59. NY: HarperCollins, 1995.)
