And it gets old, fast. I'm very introverted by nature, and though I can "turn it on" in social settings to get by, it is exhausting to me. So, most of the time, I'm quiet and "speak when I have something to say" as I tell people who feel the need to point this out to me.

On a side note, if you have an introverted/quiet friend who, perhaps one time actually comes out of their shell and talks more, DO NOT make a big deal about it to the group. It's the best way to ensure that they'll never do it again. If you want to talk to them about it, do so in a private conversation later.
