    Generally I put effort into being socially active. Usually hasn't panned out as well as I hoped but I still try. When people are confused by my presence I understand, its in my behaviour, its neither gregarious nor approachable. I can pinpoint the source and have studied how to improve the interaction although in practical terms rarely does it translate since there is a lot going on that is affecting me to be.

I classify myself as a social variant because it seems my attention always ends up landing on issues that could potentially affect the wider community. Having SP last makes me a bit evasive and reluctant when discussing my own needs without tying it into a idea that can be meaningful and useful for everyone else.

    I agree with BlackCat, I still require alone time to figure out how I should compose myself, but the difference is that although I'm concerned with social aspects, I don't proceed to interact with it directly like the extroverts do. You can be outwardly energizing (E), yet maintain a more exclusive set of priorities like SP & SX.

They just seem to do it at a bit of a slower pace. I see the instincts and E/I as describing two different things, personally. The instincts as being how to interact with the world (in a nutshell), and E/I as your function fixation and how you get your energy.
    Im an ENFJ with SP first and SO last. I'd agree with black cat that I fixate on the Fe world view, prefer to be in an extroverted mode (find it easier to operate there), but im not very socially active (the SO bit).

    Not when it can be avoided.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Not even close to a socially active person. In fact, I avoid get-togethers and all that weird stuff.

    I make attempts for reasons ranging from to avoid hurting friends/family too much to actually wanting to be there.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    People visit me a lot, which became a sorta status quo once I became a single parent: I couldn't get out much cos the people who would've babysat were the people I wanted to go out with. So people visited me instead, and tho my kids are older now and I could go out in the evenings more... I guess I got used to my privacy and stuff. When I say "a lot" I mean at least 2 or 3 times per week, often more, from 1 to maybe 4 or 5 people come over in the afternoon and stay 'til late at night, sometimes into the small hours.

    I tend to prefer small groups and one-to-ones, though the odd party can be good, depending on the people. And I do like going to pubs and small gigs (in pubs usually).

    Before I became a single parents I never went out at all, and my spouse was my only social life. They were very controlling and made my life hell if I dared to suggest that I might want/need anyone else in my life other than them. Before I was married, I went out literally every single night, often with a great number of people. But, though I was invited to everything and missed if I was absent, I always felt quite markedly "alone" whenever with other people, more so than when I wasn't.

    Because I've socialised a lot, through making my home a local "venue" in the last few years, I do know a LOT of people in this city and it does help smooth my way into most things I want to do. Really, it does help, more than just about anything else. It really is "who you know". You need to know a bluffable amount about whatever it is you want to do, at least, to be able to last any amount of time in it, but I know I could get most positions I'd want through nudging someone I know. The only reason I don't is that my family duties don't allow me the time.
    I'm male and over 30, FYI.

    If 1 would be hiding under a rock, and 10 would be all out 24/7 activity.

    I would be a 6.

    I lean towards being active.
