All by my self-e-elf

So I like to be alone. I am an introvert. I have taken multiple Myers-Briggs and everyone comes back with me as an I. [The only thing that is border is if I'm an INFJ or an ISFJ] It's not that I don't like people, well most people, it's that I enjoy being by myself.
I get my fill of people at school. I am talkative in all my classes, socialize all day, have lunch in groups, am involved in lots of clubs, talk to all my professors etc. But when I leave school, that's it. I'm drained. I want a nap and to relax.
I love walking in the door and taking my pants off and throwing on some pjs. I get stressed if people knock on the door b/c then I become the weirdo who's in her jammies at 3 pm.
My mom thinks it's odd that I don't know any of my neighbors. There is a reason. It means they won't come over. It means I can be in my sanctuary undisturbed. I wave when they drive by. I'm polite if we're getting the mail at the same time. I just don't invite them over.
It's hard to explain it to E people. They just can't see why a night at home reading and watching TV can be more fun than going out to a bar.
Don't get me wrong, I love listening to bands, going to big concerts, small bars, the movies, amusement parks, whatever. I just like to do that stuff occasionally. If I went out multiple times a week, I'd be physically exhausted, not from the lack of sleep, but from all the people and the stress.
So, if you ever move in next door, or are currently a neighbor, don't take offense that I don't have you over for drinks. It's not that I don't like you, it's that I don't want you here.
I wonder what's going to happen when I move in with someone.
