    I think it depends on what you mean by 'social'.
    As an Extravert, I would say that I am energized by socialization and am quick to adapt in social situations. However, I am not open about anything to others. I am friendly and nice to everyone but I don't trust many people and will not let anyone into my intimate life unless I'm in a romantic relationship and even then I'll only tell a person what I want them to know.
    On the other hand, I know a few Introverts who talk about their intimate lives all the time with me.
    I don't know this comes with Introversion itself but they seem much more naive about people and their reactions to things.

    Well, introversion and extroversion don't necessarily refer to sociability. Introverts have the ability to be just as charismatic or talkitive than an extrovert. It's just how often they are willing to be around a certain amount of people for so long, since that's what the intro-extroversion scale measures-- the energy people recieve or lose after prolonged periods of human interaction.

    Being sociable doesn't necessarily pertain to either I's and E's, however, Extroverts are fueled by being around people for the most part, and if judging by quantity, then it could well be said that they are the "most sociable" out of the two. However, I think that if you put an Introvert and Extrovert in a room full of people at any given time, and the Introvert happens to be in a great mood and the Extrovert somewhat down, the I will probably out socialize the E...it all depends on the situation.

    Haha! Yeah, we can be insanely social. The life of the party, even..... for a brief period of time, after which we get huge stress headaches and need to go home.

    No introverts can't beat extroverts are being social. In fact, one of the biggest problem with extroverts is uncontrolled behavior relative to their introvert counterparts. Take a look at extroverted perceivers vs introverts. The inferior function is Si and Ni. Something people usually have problem with. Si reflects on the past and Ni foresees how a situation is going to play out. Ni and Si is the third function of introverts perceivers meaning their behavior is usually more controlled. ISFP's are more restrained than ESFP's.

    However, keep in mind that neither is better or worse. Extroverts don't have as controlled behavior as their introvert counterparts. However, they are more fun.

    my ISFJ sister is a lot more socially graceful than i am. i'm the awkward one with nervous laughter, and she just has a way of calmly and assuredly saying the right thing. i'm a lot more likely to go out and do something new, meet new people, etc. than she is though. she sticks with her small circles of friends for the most part, but when a stranger is introduced to the two of us, i'd be more likely to get all weird about it.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    In Socionics, aren't IEIs actually more outgoing than EIEs, possibly because of Emotivism>Constructivism or something??

    It would be more unnatural for an introvert to be more outgoing than an extrovert. It would probably take more effort for both to suppress their dominant function. If you were to go by averages no, but sure I suppose everything has an exception

    Why not? Why should "Introvert" and "Extrovert" limit to how sociable you can be? If introversion is just simply a "reserve" of energy being drained throughout the day and recharged the next, and the extrovert simple just goes around by people to be recharged doesn't equal the ability to be social.

    I consider myself an ambivert and most people are around the middle of the introversion-extroversion spectrum anyhow, it's all on perspective. I can be sociable to accomplish a goal, just to feel better, or do whatever. I think its all in the mind.

    An extrovert can be shy and an introvert can be outgoing. Yeah I may not be so "suave" in everything I say, but words and fluency isn't what makes relationships with others 100%.
