    Daily: I can go a whole day of errands/school without socializing with anyone. I usually take the time to catch up with my roommates. If I randomly see people I know, I don't hesitate to socialize.

    Weekly: I make sure to communicate with my parents once a week. I try and "go out" to the bars/etc at least once a week (sometimes 2 or 3 times though). Depending on where I am, I often run on a "once a week schedule" for doing something with each of my worthy friends. I'll operate with a checklist in mind.

    Monthly: I try to catch up with close friends from high school with a long phone convo about once a month (sometimes its less often though).

    --------------
    I'm definitely not what you'd call "plugged in" to the immense social network. Though I do play "the game" quite well when I actually do "plug in". I think its because I have much higher standards for what constitutes "a friend". It leads me to tend a lot less to my acquaintances.

    I think I read somewhere that the average person has about 5 "good friends". This is not the median. it is possible that a few have 20, while others have 1, though I think its actually a good approximation to say most of us have about 5 good friends: the INTPs all the way to the ESFJs. The difference is just who labels their acquaintances as friends. I think it speaks volumes about how E/I MBTI has nothing to do with how much of a social tycoon you are....

    Not super socially active, although my ideal would probably be having something social to do about 2-3 times a week. If I had a significant other, and/or lived with someone, I'm sure that would be less, but living alone I tend to have a lot of solo time anyway so I enjoy getting out and doing things with friends.

    Usually it's harder to line up schedules, and also my friends tend to lead busy lives, have significant others, etc, so I might only have something going on once a week or once every couple of weeks.

    Depends on what's meant by "socially active". Since high school, I've been a big joiner of volunteer, political, and professional organizations; but I typically stay in the background, not meeting or hanging out with too many people or anything, unless we're coming together for the purposes of accomplishing some assignment(as in volunteer work). I have a few friends who have children, and I see them every other day because I take my son to play with their kids. Or, I meet people because their children are involved in the same activities as my son is.

    Pre-kiddo though, I most typically hung out with two people daily: my closest best friend, and my guy. There always seem to be lots of people around me though...people who "know" me. I enjoy a good party, so long as there are people there that I know very well. I talk to my best friends once a week, and my mother every other day. I Facebook convo my cousins every other day, and phone every month, keeping up to date on their school work and how they're doing with friends and whatnot.

    I can be, but prefer not to be most of the time.

    There have been days where I'll chat with random interesting looking people down the street, and there have been days where I'd ignore everybody.

    When I'm the mood, usually at a bar, snowboarding, club, event, or somewhere where there is a lot of activity and movement: I'm friends with everyone.

    I can't help to be active in an "active" place.

    Overall, I would say I'm 65% active and 35% wrapped up in my black mink blankets at home.

    Nope. I'll chat with people in class or lab who interest/engage me, but I don't hang out with anyone after class.

    I don't even think the extroverts on this forum are that socially active. At least not extremely active.
