comment Do humans have skin cells that trigger oxytocin release in the brain?
to clarify - are hairs involved in triggering those fibers? For example, would a person who undergone laser hair removal feel the same as a hairy person?

comment Is it possible for a human to wake up in a wrong way?
Good find, I especially appreciate the up to 4 hour timing information. This may also interact with caffeine, which is frequently consumed in the morning. Apparently caffine half-life is about 5.7 hours (caffeineinformer.com/the-half-life-of-caffeine)

comment What is the biological basis of “energy” that extraverted humans draw from social engagements and introverts expend?
Another observation: Both extraverts and introverts would be fatigued by an extended "sit here and listen to me talk" kind of meeting that runs for 2 hours.

comment What is the biological basis of “energy” that extraverted humans draw from social engagements and introverts expend?
A completely anecdotal observation: extraverted people are more physically active in social situations and use more gestures/movement. They would be moving more than introverted people (who are more likely to just sit and listen), thus extraverts may benefit from improved blood circulation, thus sustaining higher levels of engagement for longer. An introvert who's engaged in an interesting conversation moves/gestures just as much as an ordinary extravert, and thus feels less fatigue from social situations.
