    Thats pretty much right.

    Have a sense of adventure, and be curious about their life, then you will get their attention.

    I am pretty much introverted and quiet around the opposite sex, so you have to make an intiative to talk.

    I can also turn this around and say, what do you (ENTPs) really like in people?
    I can repeat what others said... be playful, happy, optimistic. Though if you need help, I'd prefer you ask me instead of pretending there's nothing wrong. I'll gladly help you, but I can't pick up hints. You can be skeptical on all my mad ideas, but don't tell it won't work without reason.
    Having some strange hobbies and interests can help, too.

    What makes you feel/know that you can trust someone? What makes you want to keep someone in your life?
    That I don't have to keep up good SF-ish appearances. If I forget your birthday, the fact that you have two (or was it three already?) children,... that's not a sign of me not liking you. Don't be offended. If I know you'll be offended when I'm just my enthousiastic forgetful self, I will be all stressed if I have to meet you. I'm nervous around aquaintances. If you don't mind me skipping the small-talk and move directly to the board/role-play game, you'll get promoted to my friend easily.
    Just to be clear: you don't have to act NT-ish around me. As long as *I* don't have to act around you, I'm fine.

    What REALLY annoys you? What do you do when you're annoyed with someone/don't want to talk to them?
    There's not a lot that would annoy me to the point I wouldn't want to talk with you. I remember being bullied by high-school friends classmates in such a subtle way that no-one knew there was bullying - even not the bullied one. So sometimes I got angry or wept for "no reason". But with hindsight I know it wasn't my fault, at least not all of it. Randomly liking me or hating me, accepting me in a group and then rejecting me.
    I was always the bad one, the childish one, the overly emotional one who couldn't take a joke.

    If you don't want to talk to someone, would you tell them? Ignore them?
    I've never stopped talking to somebody. If I'm annoyed with somebody, I would argue, I would try to pick apart what went wrong and analyse the whole situation until I understood where things went wrong and what I (and you) should do.

    What do you do when you really like someone? (again, not necessarily romantically)
    Invite them to a game of Settlers of Catan, go with them to the fun fair, the cinema or a concert,... in short, doing fun things together with them.

    Do you find yourself communicating with friends first, or wait for them to communicate with you?
    Like, "oh I haven't heard from Friend lately, I'll call him?" or do I get the phone calls or e-mails?
    Well, it's quite evenly distributed. The ones I'm friends with don't require I call them every month or anything. Sometimes we don't hear from each other in almost a year... Mostly we write an e-mail when there's something up. That can range from "I'm pregnant" or "We're going to move, our new address is ..." to "We're going to that festival in that weekend, want to join?" or "I've revamped my website, check this out!"

    What makes you feel/know that you can trust someone? What makes you want to keep someone in your life?
    Witty and enjoyable to be around. If yeu irritate me endlessly or can't keep up mentally, then why am I wasting my time on yeu?




    What REALLY annoys you? What do you do when you're annoyed with someone/don't want to talk to them?
    Not many things annoy me; being ignored is one major one. Someone who is smug with nothing to back it up is one of the most irritating things there is. Generally I can tolerate being rude if it's done in a funny way, but I can't tolerate someone being rude who just has no justification for such and can't even do it in an entertaining fashion.

    If I don't want to talk to yeu, I generally stop talking to yeu. Funny how that works >.>





    If you don't want to talk to someone, would you tell them? Ignore them?
    Usually I find putting yeur hand over their mouth gets the message across quickly and concisely. Generally no reason to tell them straight out though, most people figure it out on their own pretty fast when yeu blatantly ignore them.



    What do you do when you really like someone? (again, not necessarily romantically)
    Make excuses to spend time with them. Entertainment is rare and I like to be entertained. Be it mental stimulation, fun, games, or whotever someone can provide, if they are able to stimulate me in some way I find beneficial, I will tend to provide them attention.

    Do you find yourself communicating with friends first, or wait for them to communicate with you?[/QUOTE]

    Depends, normally I wait for people to bug me first since I figure if they want to talk they will. If there's someone I'm particularly looking forwards to speaking with, I'll poke them first though.




    After going through the questions though, I don't really think these were particularly adept at getting yeu the answers yeu're actually seeking.

    Be able to bounce ideas with you OR a complete mistery to me. I will spend years with you just so I could figure you out (it sounds like a very shallow relationship, but the curiosity is real and fascinating, which can turn into a real bond). You need to be open minded and self aware, or at least want to be.
    Honesty is really important! I can read your mind.

    I can only speak for myself, but...

    Simple: keep me guessing. If I find you unpredictable, that's worth its weight in gold. I don't mean in the sense of flaky, neurotic, crazy etc, but I just mean that you react to things I say in ways I don't expect. Which is difficult, cos it means you've got to know what the parameters of what I expect actually encompass, which is quite a variety of things. But if you can even now and again do something that makes me laugh with appreciation at the sheer originality of it, you'll have won my heart, for one.

    I can also turn this around and say, what do you (ENTPs) really like in people?
    Directness, but not of the immature kind that thinks that it has a right to say anything just because it's "true" (in their opinion) - they need to recognise when "truth" isn't called for or solicited, and speaking it isn't constructive, just hurtful. Authenticity, a person who is what they are and doesn't try to be otherwise, I appreciate - be yourself and don't try to impress me. Energy and independence. Slipperiness... I know a guy who's like a sorta fairy/elf character, you know? Whatever I say, I try to pin him down, and he laughs and sidesteps everything, and makes me laugh with it, and he laughs at me though not in a cruel way, and it drives me crazy

    What makes you feel/know that you can trust someone? What makes you want to keep someone in your life?
    When, over a period of time, they've done everything they've said they'd do, stood by everything they've said and taken responsibility when it turned out to be wrong, they've shown that they're capable of saying, directly, when they have a problem with something and haven't done the martyr act at any point, and kept every bargain I've made with them. When they've shown an openness and generosity of spirit and been consistent and constant in their dealings with me, and made as much effort to keep in touch with me as I have with them (rather than leaving me to always take the initiative, as so many do).

    What REALLY annoys you?
    People pretending to be something else to try to impress others. Snobbery, people thinking something about them makes them intrinsically better, morally or any other way, than someone else. Small-mindedness. Meanness both with material things and meanness of spirit. When somebody doesn't just trust that I'll do what I say I'll do, regardless of how many times I prove this to be the case, and they keep checking up on me, confirming, etc etc. Unwarranted pessimism - pouring cold water on plans, ideas, whatever.

    What do you do when you're annoyed with someone/don't want to talk to them?
    If it's a long-ish term thing, then first off, I tell them I'm annoyed and why. I use direct, clear and explicit, carefully chosen words that mean EXACTLY what they say on the tin. Though, I lace it with tact as much as I can without compromising truth and accuracy. If they're willing to talk about it, then I try to work with them to sort out the problem. If they react with hostility and defensiveness, and take it all personally, then I give up pretty quickly and just don't bother with them, and leave it up to them to come back when they're willing to reason. If that's never, so be it. I won't go creeping to them unless it can be clearly shown that I've done something that needs apologising for. Even then, if the person is still not willing to reason out about the problem between us, then whether they accept my apology or not, I still won't chase them up.

    If you don't want to talk to someone, would you tell them? Ignore them?
    Ordinarily I'd say tell them. Always. Even when I know I shouldn't, I usually can't help myself. I thirst for clarity and openness so much, I can't usually stand to have things hushed up, swept under the carpet or whatever. If I have a problem with someone they will usually know about it pretty quickly. The only time I can think of when I might not tell them would be if experience had told me there's no point, that they're not likely to listen/be willing to reason, or whatever. If that's the case though, it's not going to be somebody I consider a friend - it'll be someone I have little respect or liking for, but have no choice but to deal with such as a colleague/superior etc.

    What do you do when you really like someone? (again, not necessarily romantically)
    If not romantically, then I tell them, straight up, either directly or, to avoid gushing and awkwardness and big emotional scenes, I'll tell them through maybe jokey understatements, or just by showing obvious willing and desire to keep their company, initiating contact and all that.

    If romantically... well. I don't tend to tell them, if I can help it, not unless I have a good reason to believe that the feeling's mutual. If I do, then I do tell them, yes, pretty directly.

    Do you find yourself communicating with friends first, or wait for them to communicate with you?
    The latter, as implied above... I do get very tired of always being seen as the energetic, get-up-and-go one, and people looking to me to suggest things, think of things, nobody trying to do it themselves, just relying on me to always be the driving force behind a social circle. Hence why, when I meet someone who has their own energy/impetus and won't just suck mine, they quickly become very high in my regard.
    I'm male and over 30, FYI.

    If I may venture a guess, I would say don't be a sad-sack.

    This is only my perception, actual ENTPs may disagree. And of course they would know.

    It varies, but we're rather gregarious people, it doesn't take all much for us to like you. Personally I value a good sense of humor, and intelligence. I prefer both, but I can and do hang out with regular people.

    What makes you feel/know that you can trust someone? What makes you want to keep someone in your life?
    I generally trust people until they prove themselves not to be trustworthy. If I like a person, I'll keep them around.

    What REALLY annoys you?
    Utter, stubborn stupidity. Or doing something really dickish (sleeping with my girl for example).

    If you don't want to talk to someone, would you tell them? Ignore them?
    I tell them to fuck off and stop talking to them.

    What do you do when you really like someone? (again, not necessarily romantically)
    Talk to them. Do stuff with them. What else would I do in that case? I'm personally a little shy about initially approaching people, though.

    Do you find yourself communicating with friends first, or wait for them to communicate with you?
    Depends. There are a few people I talk to every chance I get. Others whom I wait for them to come to me.
