It also depends on what aspects of the social world you're talking about. Sure, ENFPs make for great conversation because of their upbeat attitude and quirky personality but if we're talking about aligning yourself with society's standards I would say we're not that great. Ne+Fi really clashes with Fe (at least in my experience) and I think ENFPs in the social world are frequently misunderstood a lot of the time. I often get dismissed with comments like "Haha oh my god, you're so weird" if I show an interest in something/say something/act someway that's off the beaten path. I think people peg me and probably other ENFPs as one of those "weird" people who it's socially acceptable to be friends with because they've made a name for themselves via their quirkiness. This is probably due to Ne-dom and why ENFPs are viewed as more socially competent than INFPs who are Fi-dom. But I think NFPs in general are awesome people and should be appreciated for who they are and not what they're perceived to be. Neither type seems inadequate to me because they both have their strengths and weaknesses.
That being said, the last two sentences can apply to any type.
