    Default What type flirts the best?

    What type flirts the best and why? (best as in most "efficient," or most adaptive, or most universal in terms of getting good responses across all types*)

    I'm going to say that NTPs are the best flirts. I think flirting has to do with recognizing that boundary between danger and safety and blurring it. NTs are comfortable pushing that boundary (unlike SJs and NFs) and are good at recognizing that boundary because so much of their lives are spent getting burned by it and relying on their analytical mind to navigate social situations. NTs can be very observant and pick up on details in behavior and throw them back in your face. Their language savvy helps them set up punch lines and craft their comments in ways that maximize comedic or ironic impact. They also know big words and can use that to their advantage to set themselves up as intelligent or observant, so people think they're listening to someone witty and interesting, rather than pedantic.

    Do other temperaments/types have different flirting styles?

    Kidding aside, the ENFP is a lecherous fop.

    Well.. there are types that flirt effortlessly and abundantly (ESFP, for example) and then there are types that are so very subtle that it leaves you begging for more if you manage to catch on (INTP).

    They cannot beat the ENFx for their ability to extrovert, mimic and understand the human element in other people to manipulate their responses. Sorry. INTP very good at being sophisticated and witty but that's not all there is to flirting.

    Interesting. Would you agree with my definition of flirting as activity that blurs the lines between attraction and rejection? I was thinking about it today. It's a lot like peekaboo: I'm here for you, I'm not; I'm here for you, I'm not...
