I don't really enjoy meeting new people, unless they're particularly interesting persons.

Sometimes, under certain circumstances and for a common goal. An obvious situation is at work when new staff are recruited and they need an orientation of the systems or departments. Perhaps and if I am allocated to do this, then I would have no choice but to first to introduce myself even though I usually don't like meeting new people.
