    Yeah, it's not like I'm overly concerned about my looks or that I think I dress completely inappropriately. I've certainly improved since I was younger; now I need to transition from the wearing of the athletic style clothing that fits into a more mature style of clothing, is all.

    I was just wondering if there's any quirks, physically, that the INTJ male is interested in. Because I know that I sure am picky about the males I'm interested in. But it's not necessarily the stereotypical "hot guy" that I'm interested in. Actually, likely it's not the stereotypical "hot guy".

    We could probably offer more helpful advice if you described this lad's personality and general conduct.

    I think everyone looks at physical appearance whether they admit it or not. Let's face it, physical appearance draws us to others. But the good news is that everyone has different tastes. Looks, personality, and intelligence are subjective. (For example, some people have fat fetishes.)

    People who are good looking, but overly concerned about their appearance, makeup, and accessories is a turn-off for me. Because that says something about the personality side. People look their best when they look more or less natural in respect to their personality. I usually can intuitively tell posing personalities apart from sincereness.

    And actually, look at appearance as one-fourth of attraction, for I added the way people sound, too -- honestly, I don't want anyone with a knife-in-my-ear sort of voice.

    I'd say, dress to look very intelligent. Perhaps a pair of glasses and avoid overdoing the hair, nails and makeup. But dress in such a way that you can unwind in an instant to become this amazing wild animal. Perhaps consider what you wear underneath?

    The same is true of us. I'm fairly neutral on body, though I have what might be considered very unusual preferences. The chances that any two INTJs have the same preferences is quite low, and we seem to be one of the most variable types from person-to-person. A mix of maturity, life, and circumstances, among other things, will make each of us so distinctly different from the next that there is no standard that you could ever target.

    This has varied over my life, but, here are my preferences:
    Weight/Body Shape: Thin through Overweight, with a slight preference for just a bit above average, I find excessive weight and skinny disgusting (this includes all models guys drool over). Must be evenly/well distributed, which varies per person. This has probably been my longest-standing preference.
    Clothing: Practical, simple, clean. I also like dresses for some reason, even though they're impractical. I don't like floppy clothing (most things that hang, swing, or blow in the wind, for instance, aside from a dress, but with those I prefer heavier ones that don't move much in the wind or while walking). It needs to fit; I seriously dislike things like sweats or loose shirts (even with overweight girls, a shirt that fits well looks better). I also don't like much skin showing, aside from head/neck/arms/hands. Maybe some of the lower leg if it's hot.
    Adornment: Little-to-none. I dislike jewelry (including earrings, necklaces, etc), seriously dislike painted/augmented/long nails (over half an inch, but I still prefer not much beyond the tip of the finger), and severely dislike (teetering on hate) tattoos. Hair adornments are alright, as long as they're not too attention-attracting.
    Hair: I don't generally care for shorter than shoulder-length hair. Too long and straight gives me an automatic reaction to the person (butt-length straight = someone I don't want to associate with (Hippie sort? Spaced-out druggie? Something like that)). I tend to dislike dyed hair, particularly weird colors, which are flat repulsive. I also have a general preference for hair color from blonde through red, but have known many darker-haired girls I liked, so this is just a general preference. Oh yes, I prefer wavy (not curly) hair.

    That said, when randomly wandering I've notice that under one in a thousand females catch my attention due to attractiveness, and it usually occurs no more than once every three months. They don't look like models, aren't really what guys are probably looking for, generally are pretty boring in appearance, sometimes nerdy (usually not), never over 5'9" or so. When I'm trying to locate them I seldom exceed about one in a few hundred. The funny thing is that they don't fit any checklist, and all these can be overcome by just talking to me.

    I'm not sure how much you're going to learn about INTJ physique preferences; in terms of personality and dress style, it's likely/possible that MBTI can offer some general predictions. But in terms of physique...well, last I checked a male is a male is a male.

    Speaking personally, some general themes that might help are: proportion is all that really matters (within reason - as Wolf says, extremes are not really that attractive). Clothing wise...as long as it's not some garishly colourful/hippie-type thing that screams "I'm a struggling 20-something artist, although my parents have paid for me to buy these trendy clothes and prance around for a few years" then you're probably alright. The other one to avoid is dressing like a guy.

    Beyond that tastes are probably too personal to be of much help.

    I can find either of these attractive (granted, I am not an INTJ).

    There is something about 20-something artistic-hippie girl I find attractive.

    Also, something about a woman in a sports jersey I find attractive too. Espesially if she has nice breasts

    Remove the "beyond that" part and I would agree whole heartedly. Take a look at the girl Uberfuhrer finds to be a "female version of him". Do you think your guy would want the same type? (not that there is anything wrong with her, I just believe it is quite a unique taste)

    Okay. I was a little worried about just posting so much stuff on the internet, but oh well. What are teh chances someone I know reads this? Hopefully slim.

    This guy:
    *Supernerd. Sits front & center in lecture @ uni; ahead of his credit hours for how long he's been in school (as in, takes more than the maximum course load) and gets amazing grades.
    *Superathlete. He competes internationally at a raquet sport and gets paid to do it. (Which I didn't know until I got to know him. He practices every day in between labs, etc. when he can.)
    *Superpolite/respectful.
    *Gets the cheapest haircuts around/leaves for school 6 minutes after waking up, etc. Low Maintenance is the nice terminology
    *Likes classic rock; plays guitar, etc.
    *Highly cares about fairness.
    *You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
    *Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason once accepted, despite your changing moods.
