Gregariousness: n. (desiring to be and behaving as) a member of a group
There is more than a subtle difference between a gregarious and sociable human. A gregarious human desires to be a member of at least one group and enjoys interacting with it. A sociable human may have contacts with many different group members and effectively has created his or her own group of friends and acquaintances but may choose not to be a member of other groups. A sociable human may only be making social contacts to benefit him or herself and not necessarily want to be a member of any one group or groups.
A gregarious human enjoys being a member of one or more groups and may be sociable also and have created his or her own group of friends and acquaintances. Many are gregarious and sociable but some are mostly just sociable and there are some who are basically loners and neither gregarious or sociable.
