    this whole flirting discussion is haunted by shades of grey.

    did they realize they were flirting?
    is it intentional?
    is it sexual in nature or just friendly?
    would then then follow through?
    why do they flirt?

    it's a messy place and a messy discussion. I am going running now. Bye bye and have fun guys!!
    Finally! Of course, most sensible post comes from the INTP ().

    Synarch, your behavior in this thread kind of baffles me, because I would submit to you that your entire persona on this board is based upon flirting. You engage people, you make innuendoes, you push their boundaries, you play with them and insult them. You do it with both men and women. It's odd, ENTP flirting, but it's still a form of flirting. If your girlfriend took issue with your posting style, would you cease and desist? Or would you say, "Hey, that's just my personality, I can't help it if you don't get it?" I'm not having a go at you--just seems like a bit of a paradox, to me.

    For me, intention is everything. Some people have greater flirting/socialization needs. Sometimes I feel confident and more inclined to be social, so I interact in a friendlier way with people, laugh and smile more, etc. But if there's no intention behind it, I will not focus on one individual and make them think that I'm interested. It's just a generalized friendliness, and it's the same whether it's directed toward men or women. If someone mistakes it for intention, I'm up-front about my lack of interest or availability romantically.

    I've never dated an ENFP, but one of my good friends is one, and I know on a friend basis, she definitely has friends she values more than others. She'll strike up a conversation and be friendly with nearly anyone, but they don't mean the same to her as her handful of valued friends do.

    Got no money, got no car. Ain't have a woman of mine, I have love interest in some but they ain't mine. And yes, I think this was sarcastic, I just played along stupidly.

    Only an INTP could see being insulted or having their boundaries pushed as a form of flirtation.

    Simple case of bloody-mindedness mixed with low self-esteem.

    Oh, that makes me feel bad. Is that really true?

    Admittedly, we are an odd lot. But the question remains--if your poking-at-people-with-a-stick and propensity towards innuendo-based wordplay is taken by others as flirtation, do you have a responsibility toward your significant other to stop it?

    Personally? lol that's the perversion behind stereotypes Blue, I'm as calm and detached as I could possible be. I do feel the need to point out how most of this is being based on unsubstantial and unverifiable claims.

    There's a not-so-subtle difference.
    You're cool and all Blue but I just can't give every post my attention I meant the tone of your subsequent posts, much like Synarch's, seemed kinda ad hominem.

    You agreed with Synarch on the most outrageous of all his claims concerning ENFPs. But don't misinterpret me either. I called you both bitter but I'm not deeply offended or anything. But there are clearly personal vendetta undertones to some of these posts I'm thinking. If not...well you can always dismiss it as biased NF rationale

    lol, you do know we ENFPs have big egos right? Or do you really think we are that dependent on what others think?

    Everything I said was simply a warning to the dangers of this whole "ENFPs, because of Ne or EP or whatever usually do this or that....". Sure unhealthy ENFPs might have a problem with boundaries, but what of it?

    It's a legitimate question. If she feels that I am engaging in something with the purpose of sexually exciting or creating feelings of romantic attachment, I would have to take this seriously. Obviously.
