    I don't do the flirt.

    I'm clueless to people's body language anyhow. But it's amazing how wrong people are about my own, asking me if I'm unhappy when I'm fine and never asking when it matters.

    Unless they do know and its a case of avoiding the obvious for a chance to skip drama.

    I'm a bit charmless though, offline I don't really like talking to people all that much even though my job requires it. I tend to approach from a position of defensiveness, almost unconsciously so.

    Doesn't help that I don't click with anybody around here, (my town that is not the forum) at least so far. I don't seem to have the right kind of thinking to get along. Everything is just awkward.... all the time.

    The social flow is like some kind of invisible force that I'm not attuned to. I do my own thing and it never fails to rub the socially conscious the wrong way.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    I don't know how to flirt because of having close to zero experience with it.

    Reason being, is I will only engage in it unless I am almost completely certain the other individual happens to be interested in me. I almost never get that certainty, so it doesn't happen.

    It happens. My mom is this way. She comes across like she's flirting with SO many people, all the time. It's just how she is. I've tried to explain it to her, and even pointed out the specefic behaviors that lended to it, and she "saw" it, but didn't "see" it, and regarded it as just how she is, and didn't want to change. I did tell her that she IS flirtatious based on how everyone sees her, even if she doesn't agree. However, flirting is often regarded as having intent behind it. Without that intent, I don't think it is fair to call it flirting, but instead flirtatious behavior.

    Interestingly, @Ene and my mom are the same type (INFJ 9w8), and having seen a video of Ene before on the first things I thought was "wow she is so much like my mom" with vibe and speaking, so it's not surprising to me at all and I can clearly see in my minds eye what it is. Ene is just friendly, and people with weak social detectors will assume it's flirting.

    Yeah. However, I was just playing around. The truth is that irl I'm not really a flirt. I am actually pleasant and quietly, unexpectedly funny in person and that occasionally gets mistaken for flirting, but it's not. I'm just attempting to be hospitable, which I guess is such a rare thing that some people think you're flirting if you even speak to them, let alone smile at them.

    I'm not sure if it's type-related, but I stare intently at the object of my affection until she's overwhelmed with giddiness and runs away. Then I chase her, as if we are two children playing tag on the playground (this is especially effective if she's over the age of 30 because it makes her feel young and vivacious). If she hasn't detected my subtle flirtations by that point, I'll show up to her residence unexpectedly with a bouquet of flowers...which works like a charm because women love romance and surprises. If I play my cards right, I should be in her panties in no time. Unless she rejects me. Then I'll go home and masturbate; and send her a picture so she knows what she's missing.

    Make sure you get the details of their star chart while you're at it.

    ESTP and ENTP are usually the most direct, and most at ease with showing their romantic/sexual interest. ENFP can be direct when it comes to the approach, but less so when it comes to the rest. There's something platonic about their ways, but it's not 100% platonic either. I think they just want to 'check things out' before proceeding further.

    Flirting has a way with some people, and not many master it.
    I never seemed to need it that's why I can't tell how good I am.
    But just when I want something I either get it or earn it.
    So even if I'm bad, I'll teach myself to nail it.

    Sincerely, ENTJ
