    Default Impressing a (possible) INTP?

    So I have a slightly bizarre situation. I contract for a small online company with a ceo I think is INTP. I have ended up getting to the point where he wants to impress me, if I post something in their member forums asking for something the CEO himself will end up working on my idea. As obvious as this is from outside the company I do have this confirmed from inside the company too.

    First of all, what exactly is going on here? What is this from the INTP's personality that is causing it.

    Second of all, I need to figure out a way to get this working for me. A job? More contracts? I'm not even sure how involved he is in those things on a day to day basis but I know he doesn have a lot of say in every day workings when he feels like it

    Any ideas?

    As far as I know INTPs love seeing competency. That would be the main thing to keep in mind.

    It's not that simple: I'll overlook competency for the sake of a great rack, for instance.

    I don't think I get it, either.

    But if it's "how do I use my connection with the INTP to my business and financial advantage?" my advice would be to make sure he doesn't know that's what you're doing.

    Or state it right out.

    So...who's trying to impress who? The CEO is trying to impress you, and you want to use this to your advantage? Or you're trying to impress the CEO, and use it to your advantage.

    You know, if you're so keen about getting a job or more contracts from him, just give him a BJ.

    Well, I'm not exactly sure what happened. I just know I'm getting extra preference somehow. I'm not really getting any benefit from it though. Any comments really do help.

    I'm trying not to put tooo much detail because it is a workplace for me.

    eta: I think the ceo is trying to impress me. I'm not really sure! "I will fix this personally because elaur asked" What is that?

    That's it? That seems rather unimpressive evidence for your conclusion.

    This is probably why I have no idea what goes on in his head. I'm not getting the INTP speak.

    Did you see this part? "As obvious as this is from outside the company I do have this confirmed from inside the company too."
