If extrope is intransitive, than it doesn't need a direct object to complete
its meaning.

I wouldn't *need* to extrope anyone else to complete *my* meaning.

Yet, since I learn from others and our interactions can add significance to
my own values, I could extrope someone else and enjoy it (pending upon what
I am doing by extroping -:)
