    An INTP is pretty much the easiest type to have an infatuation with. We won't mind you making hte move, will tell you openly so if the attraction is mutual if you ask us, and if it isn't we won't be "wierd" afterwards unless you are.

    So just tell her goodgrief, if she is INTP she will prob give you a truthful answer and it prob won't be a problem unless you make it one.
    I don't really know about that. It may be easy to have an infatuation with us, but getting us to a) figure it out and b) figure out what to do with that information can be a bizarre and confusing experience.

    Approaching directly may or may not work because an INTP would prefer to have some reason to suspect interest on the part of the party. However, from what Ive read, the stereotypical INTP is basically oblivious to romantic signals, and therefore is unlikely to "see it coming" in any case. On the other hand, actively attempting to lay down ground work before hand (aka courting, wooing, whatever) is seen to be tedious and incomprehensible, so they tend to avoid it. Thus one can neither seduce nor ambush an INTP unless, of course, you do.

    I don't know what to do with this. Also, I think my head might explode.

    Well someone tells us they like us in plain English/Spanish/Swahili, we respond with a yes or a (convoluted) no. What could be simpler?

    Of course the complications come when the other person complicates it.

    TBH I'd have to think about my answer for a while, if it were to ever happen to me again, haha. I was so blindsided by my current SO's original interest I just said "okay" and figured if I ended up not liking her I'd tell her later. Luckily, didn't have to do that!

    Well it may be an infatuation but it's totally justified. She is very awesome!

    heh, fair enough. You could be right actually, I guess if we had no idea it was coming this could happen. My reasoning was though that the INTP girl in question probably has some idea...

    Goodgrief - I didn't mean anything bad by saying infatuation. Maybe the word in the US has negative connotations I don't know about...

This is why 99% of political careers are characterized by betrayal and end in failure.

    Most people don't aim for their life to take this course and therefore theories of "Power and Seduction" aren't really of much use to them.
    Well said.
    It's an interesting book, nontheless.

    Well I'm actually in Australia, but yeah. When people say 'infatuation' in my experience it connotates like over the top, excessive and beyond what is deserved.

    But I guess that's subjective anyway. I'm sure not everyone sees her as this perfect (though I'm not under the impression she is perfect, just very great) so it kinda is infatuation to some degree. I would call it love but that would be getting ahead of myself, since I haven't actually had a romantic relationship to know for sure.

    But God I love being around her. Especially when it was just me and her. We have a lot of chemistry.
