Of course, such "ambiverts" don't really exist. I'm talking of course of Extrovert Introtims and Introvert Extrotims.
I mean, there are many conflicting definitions of E/I. No dichotomic trait pair is more polysemic than it.
Classical E : outgoing, social, loud, afterthinking, public
Classical I : reserved, lonely, quiet, forethinking, private
Socionic E : active, energy-expanding, initiating, focus on bodies, gives others attention (like "electricity")
Socionic I : passive, energy-saving, responding, focus on fields, attention-seeking (like "magnet")
Most of the time (I think 62% or something), such definitions don't conflict. But on certain cases, they conflict. When they conflict, we can say that we're in an ambivert case.
I mean, there are two types of ambiverts :
- Extrovert Introtims
- Introvert Extrotims
When we're in such case, there's a risk of mistyping or self-mistyping.

Most likely ambiverts are : ILE, LSI, IEI, LIE, and IEE.
