    I certainly don't.

    I'm quite happy living in contented and total isolation.

    I say hello to the neighbours, and only speak to others when it is absolutely unavoidable.

    People generally are duplicitous, sly, backstabbing, defammatory and untrustworthy Women, the worst of all.

    I can do quite well without them, thank you very much.

    Humans "need" other humans. Babies need their human mothers and fathers for protection, food, comfort, and survival. Without human interaction from birth, humans would cease to exist. There have been instances where humans were raised by animals and they showed little cognitive development and virtually no socialization or language skills. So in order to be a functioning adult, somewhere along the line you need other humans.

    Theoretically, as an adult, you do not "need" human interaction or contact with other humans. You could spend the rest of your life living in the mountains without any human contact. But as the other answerer said, you would live a lonely life void of any real pleasure. Happiness is only real if shared....

    Without human contact, you lose social endurance. Being around people becomes exhausting. It's a lot like physical exercise. You need to stay in shape.

    Also, you need a sounding board for your ideas. You can believe anything, but you need somebody to help you examine those beliefs. Think about the last time you tried to explain a dream to somebody. What made so much sense to you was actually impossible to explain in words. This is how we tell good ideas from random brainfarts.

    depends on how independent a person is

    some people could go for days without talking to someone because being in their own company is very healing for themselves and they're completely engaged no matter where they are, who they're with, and what they're doing.

    i'm not familiar with the other type of people and their needs so you'll have to ask them. these are the people who need situational and emotional feedback from outside of themselves so you'll have to ask them.

    plants need water, even cacti.

    humans need human interaction, even the most independent.

    no explanation can be encompassing enough.

    that's just the way it works.

    at least some human interaction, I would think.

    personally, I'd be happy in a nice home, with a garden and 2 cute little doggies.

    People with friends and partners live longer, healthier lives.

    So, just as one could live without food and water, your life wouldn't be as long or pleasurable.
