    That sounds very similar to me and my mom. Well not exactly me, I don't lighten up atmospheres I just tend to not care heh! I have no investment in wither or not the atmosphere at any social thing is comfortable or not, because heh I am largely not there anyway.

    But that does sound like my mom.

    We both call it being "peopled-out."

    Where you just want to be alone and away from people after social experiences, watch a movie with a loved one or all alone, just peace and quite... Very cranky if not given that opportunity to relax after a certain period of time.

    Also I've found that some people are extroverts by nature but introverts by nurture.
    Those people always seem more bitter.

    But I would say that introverts who appear extroverted are largely just in a comfortable atmosphere where they can exercise their extroverted functions. Such as an INTJ in a debate, using Te. And an INFJ at a get together, using Fe.
    They can't perform that way forever though, and afterwords will probably feel cranky and want alone time. And that's the difference between extroverts and introverts.
    Sure they can be extroverted - but it saps their energy.
    While extroverts can perform that way for longer periods, and feel refreshed afterwords.

    It's not extraversion, it's just me impatiently pushing the words out of my mouth.
    I can totally relate to this. I often speak up, I am assertive and opinionated as well. Actually now that I read it I can relate to everything you just said here.

    My best friend is an ENFP and I have more than once hauled his lazy bum off the couch to go do something productive!

    Interesting, that makes so much sense, it would explain why I'm at my most extroverted when playing sports, exercising my Se.
