My wife is like that. She's INFP and introverted (I'm ENFP), but extremely sociable and not the slightest bit shy or quiet. The difference is that after a couple of hours at a party, I usually want to stay and keep chatting with friends, and she usually gets tired and wants to leave, so we have to compromise a bit. That said, she also likes to socialize a whole lot and we both get excited when we see our friends. The difference is that she tires of it after some time and needs that recharge where she likes to go home and do things like read by herself until the next few days when she wants to see our friends again.
You are evidently an introvert who loves people. You're a caring person who enjoys others but to a limit.
Take me for instance, I enjoy the company of others but prefer not to be the center of attention.. in fact I avoid it! I interact well in small groups but am quite shy in larger groups.
And there are many times that I prefer not to go out, but when I force myself to I;m usually glad I did.
I guess I can feel somewhat outgoing on occasions and more timid on others. Definitely need my alone time but if I was stranded on a desert island I would go crazy!

Everyone's an ambivert. "Im like extraverted when I hang out with people that I like or are cool but like I totally need alone time to recharge so I don't fit in like either box, I guess I'm special that way." I am so done with these simplistic ways of thinking. Because anyone can be an introvert or extravert around the right or wrong people.
