Equality is rare in nature and with inequality comparison begs the question. This is a valid question plain and simple.
I'm gonna give my POV from dealing with both:
Chinese are shy, which also means they feel a bit friendlier, not talkative, and polite. It is true they are less socially adept (I would never call such a thing social "intelligence"). Note that these characteristics are correlated with intelligence proper, which agrees with my experience. Chinese are more intelligent proper than Indians.
Indians are more social, some of them, not all, can give the impression of rudeness. They are better in trade and less hard-working.

Both can be physically identified with equal certainty. Eventhough Indians are Caucasoid, they are a heck of a lot different looking than Europeans and Americans of European origin.
I don't think Chinese in China are shy. They are as talkative and direct as Americans, especially in north China.
Chinese Americans may be shy, due to undesirable social environment.
