My understanding is that an extrovert is one draws their energy from those around them, while an introvert draws their energy from within.

So, an introvert might actually be very sociable and outgoing - it is just not the source of their energy.

The Myers Briggs classed me as an introvert but my score was actually almost right on the line between the two.

Me: Al99, poly, heterosexual male, 50's
Becky: married to Al99, poly, heterosexual female, late 30's
Bouncingbetty: ldr girlfriend to Al99, poly, pansexual female, early 30's
Ben: Becky's medium-ldr bf, heterosexual male, 40's

I consider myself to be an extrovert. I think that too much of anything (alone time or social time) can be bad for me...eventually too much socialization does exhaust me, and eventually too much alone time makes me almost frantically restless. But if neither are completely out of balance, I think I get more from social time. Sometimes I almost feel like I have to go be with "my people" and I call it resetting, or recalibrating, my energy.

MB says extrovert.

I am also, situationally, an exhibitionist. I've been known to give friendly naked hugs at parties. So long as I'm not violating anyone's boundaries, I love to be naked, whether around others or not.
