I think us NT's are pretty good at it. One of the keys to flirting is humor, and I think NT's are the best humorists. Flirting and humor seem to come from the same well, both are designed to get a positive reaction out of people.
i don't like how the poll is structured. i don't think splitting the type up into the 4 temperaments help our quest at all. take the claim that SP's are the best at flirting. ISTP's are known for spending the least effort of all the groups on a relationship. surely, they cannot be the best flirts. on the other hand, an ESFP would be one of the best. how can two types from the same temperament differ so much? the answer is that what constitutes a good flirt have little to do with whether they are a J or a P, an S or an N (okay, maybe this one has a little more truth in it) but how well they interact with people. therefore, E's and F's should make the best flirts in my book. don't get flirting prowess mixed up with what type you like yourself. we are talking about overall ability here.
the Fe function obviously has much to do with how well one can understand people, so those with a dominant Fe function should have an advantage. those are the ESFJ's and ENFJ's.
I'm an ISTP, and I seem to be a "natural" flirt, I don't even know what exactly it is I do, but even though I'm definitely of average or even slightly below-average looks, I'm able to attract pretty much whoever appeals to me quickly and without much effort.
^^ Mr. ISTP Stud -- dood, you must write a book. And then go sell it on Maxim.com or 'AskMen.com' or some place like that. And give me 10% for suggesting the idea to you.

+1 for Heart!
Annnnnnnd, I'm sorry maybe I'm not hanging out with the right INTPs but the INTPs I know who try to flirt? Mmmm....it can be endearing, let's put it that way, but it's not smooth.
But I guess you didn't say who's the 'smoothest' flirt.
I'm not even sure what you mean by flirting anymore, so nevermind.

Hahahahahaha. Lat, the ubiquituous 'they' have given you a bad rap. You are a-okay in my book. 'Cause that was funny.

Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
ENFJ best overall flirt. Must give credit where it is due.
Agreed. Definitely ENFJ. All the ENFJ male friends I have are the biggest flirts. Can't take them anywhere without one of them picking up some woman at the next table etc. On the other hand, ESTJ men I'm friends with DO NOT FLIRT. They are always uber professional and slightly intimidating until you unravel their interests.
