If we're paying any attention to you at all, and especially if we're the one to initiate contact, we're interested.
Uh, no. I pay attention to and initiate contact with plenty of men I'm not interested in. Of course, I'm of the odd sort of INTJ who actually socializes!

I'm pretty transparent though and hence amenable to the usual tests of interest - not relaxing around the object of my affection, blushing and not knowing what to do with myself if ambiguously teased or complimented by said person, etc.
If in doubt about an INTJ's interest, just flirt, and if nothing seems to come of it, flirt harder. You'll either soon be rejected in no uncertain terms or break down their defenses and all of a sudden have a surprisingly happy and desirous INTJ on your hands. - Good luck with that.
