If you dislike parties does this mean that you are not a sociable person?
It depends what you are looking for and what you think you can get out of it?
Parties are generally alcohol fuelled meetings of people coming together who generally don’t know each other. It is an event to meet people, make connections, or get drunk.
The suggestion in the link is that socialable people don’t go to parties because they cannot find true social connections. It is meant to be a happy time to make people laugh and feel comfortable.
Anything less than happy like expressing a hurt or vulnerability is seen as not being party behaviour. So perhaps if you dislike parties it means that you are too ambitious to think that any connection can be made: so stay in bed. Or even that you might be more sociable than you actually think you are.
