One who is an introvert and capable of socialization. The term is largely pointless and self-applied by people who don't understand that introverts are not inherently incapable of socializing.

A term used by people who don't understand the meaning of either of these words.

There's no such thing as an introverted extrovert. A person who describes himself/herself as an introverted extrovert does so to keep people who don't know he/she is really an introvert from knowing that he/she is not the extrovert some people think he/she is.
Lindsay had found empowerment in convincing people around her she was an open extrovert since she was young, though she had always been an introvert. She would describe herself to other people as an introverted extrovert to keep from losing people who remained close to her that thought she was really an extrovert, since she couldn't handle being alone. She even pretended to be there for other people her entire life for the same reason, she couldn't handle being alone. It never really mattered to her how much damage was done to other people's lives, as long as she didn't end up alone herself, everything would be okay in her mind.
