    I can only reiterate a few things already mentioned:

    • Doing small things and tasks for another person

    • Initiating contact a lot ... that's really stepping outside the introverted comfort zone.

    • Affectionate physical contact ... small gestures such as a touch or hug.

    Regarding touch, that friend I mentioned, with the song -- I'll often tug on her hair, or balance things on her head.

    Haha.

    I do stuff like that to my sister. But she's an ESFJ so I have every right too.

    Out of curiosity, OP, are you trying to see if an INTP in your life cares about you? I agree with 90% of what has been said thus far.

    If you are seeking attention of yonder INTP and he isn't exhibiting any of these characteristics then perhaps talk to him directly about something that interests him? If an INTP has already made his mind up about you it will be a tough sell to have him think otherwise. If he likes you an INTP will emit a powerful pharamone from beneath his armpits that most, if not all women find irresistable.

    Wow. So true. It's the fleeing part that is both adorable and infuriating. Physical affection always makes me want to cuddle, but I turn around and he's gone!

    My INTP bf does this. He gets comforting movies for us to watch together when I'm having a bad week, and surprises me with supper when I come home late after a long day.

    it shows that you care when you actually ask how i'm doing and express concern when you think something is bothering me. being open in this way is pretty upfront on how important i and the relationship we're having are to you.

    What is this "concern" that you refer to? I'm a bit ambiguous on the concept.

    the type of "concern" i was referring to is when you open up and allow yourself to acknowledge and feel that you are worried about someone else's well being. perhaps wondering or hoping they're ok because you do not want them to hurt. INTPs may not express such things by nature, but if the person they are dealing with is usually caring and always concerned w/the INTPs well being in a non intrusive way, the INTP may see what effect this concern has on them and may in turn learn to express it in return.
