    extraverts, being adaptive, tend to be highly adjustive.

    Not socionics' Xe/Xi.

    I'm sure some people will suggest high monitors are Fe, low are Fi.
    Or high are Fs, low are Ts.
    Or high are enneagram so first, low are so last.
    Etc

    Uhm sure, in the same sense that it's a poor test for diabetes.

    Anndelise probably got it closer with the high/low Social instinct.

    I didn't bother with the test. I already know I tend to censor myself quite a bit. My problem tends to be finding the middle ground between caring too much what others think and not giving a damn.

    You want her to be your socionics buddy because she shows a tendency to mindlessly agree wit things she does not truly believe? That's actually perfect. That would work out well.

    There are probably multiple factors contributing to someone's proclivity to self-monitor such that it won't reduce neatly to a single dichotomy.

    I've looked up self-monitoring on wiki and a couple of random studies to see what it might possibly correlate with and here are a few snippets:

    "There are several theories within social psychology that are closely related to the self-monitoring construct. Icek Ajzen argues that subjective norms are an important antecedent to determining behavioral intention in the Theory of Reasoned Action/Theory of Planned Behavior. High self-monitors tend to weigh subjective norms more heavily than low self-monitors. ... The self-monitoring construct would identify that high self-monitors may be more susceptible to informational cascades and herd mentality. High self-monitors are more motivated to attain high social status than low self-monitors. Research drawing on the Elaboration Likelihood Model suggests that high self-monitors, more than low self-monitors, react favorably to peripheral processing of advertising images consistent with high social status."

    "High self-monitors tend to be social pragmatists who are chameleon-like in adjusting the public expression of their attitudes and behavior to fit with the expectations of others. High self-monitors are also likely to construct and project images with the goal of impressing others—termed a status enhancement motive by Gangestad and Snyder. Conversely, low self-monitors are likely to attempt actively to convey to others that they present no false images. Low self-monitors appear to be both less willing and less able to project impressions that are different from their privately experienced self. In this sense, Gangestad and Snyder suggested that low self-monitors also care about their impressions, but only to the extent that the impression is a genuine reflection of self. As such, the low self-monitor may be operating under a self-validation motive and may tend to use impression management as a principled strategy of representing their ‘‘true self’’ to others. ... Results also indicated that self-monitoring was positively related to role conflict and role ambiguity, suggesting that high self-monitors were more likely to experience (or report) greater role stress than low self-monitors ... high self-monitors reported lower organizational commitment is consistent with the literature from basic social psychology showing that high self-monitors often report lower levels of interpersonal commitment and less stable social bonds."

    Your score is 52, on a scale of 0 (low self-monitor) to 100 (high self-monitor). You are neither a high nor low self-monitor.

    Self-monitoring refers to how a person behaves in different contexts (ie, work, visiting friends, or shopping). A high self-monitoring person is someone who monitors and adapts their own behavior to match their surroundings. A low self monitor tends to use their internal values and beliefs to figure out how to behave.

    In other words, a low self monitor will exhibit the same behavior in different contexts, whether it's a meeting at work, softball game with friends, or family reunion. A high self monitor will act differently in these different contexts, perhaps acting more formally at work or cracking jokes with friends, if that is what others are doing.
