+1 to CISSP, I had essentially the same experience as the OP, and decided that IS manager tedious. I went and wrote my CISSP, got 'lucky' a couple of times with breach issues and poof, 5 yrs later I'm a Sr Infosec Manager.
While it doesn't have a practical component, I've met very few people who honestly say they left the exam knowing if they passed or failed. Most nerve wracking test I've ever sat for anyways. And most of infosec (absent specialties such as pentest, and even then arguably) is 90% thinking anyways. Very seldom is it important to know what command to type. Much more important to know the theory like the back of your hand.
All that having been said, if you don't like handling people, infosec is likely a poor fit. You'll top out soon if you can't have a coherent argument with someone that doesn't degenerate into "Because I said so".
