    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    You think I do this? Please point it out to me. Perhaps you are just missing the irony.
    I don't indicate romantic or sexual interest unless I feel romantic or sexual interest that I want to pursue. Like I said, what's the point? I like to conserve my energy. And I hate obliqueness (in the sense of
    "a. Indirect or evasive
    b. Devious, misleading, or dishonest")

    There are people who get some kind of validation/kick out of stringing others along and manipulating their emotions. I don't. I think it's cruel and selfish and vain. If I inadvertantly lead someone to believe I feel something for them, I am quick to set them straight.
    I don't see why people who don't engage in this kind of manipulation should be viewed as defective and given instruction in how to do it. There are many things that I am technically capable of but ethically not.
    If you are genuinely interested in someone, then flirting is only useful to 'test the waters'. (And it's far from the only approach.) Beyond that, it just seems insincere and boring. From personal experience, I have found those who excel at this form of communication to be shallow and egotistical and I prefer to avoid them.

    This sort of thing:

    makes me sick. I despise manipulation and deceit. Sexual manipulation is perhaps the worst kind.

    MLF, I believe they are referring to the various bantery back-and-forths you do. Even if they may be clearly not serious, people will still perceive it as 'flirtation' - like playing poker for pennies.

    It can't be both "clearly not serious" and flirtation though. Flirtation relies on ambiguity. That's what makes it seductive. Most INTs are too sincere to be effective flirts. I find that quite charming. Lots of people do. Then there are those who buy into all that PUA crap. I find that creepy.

    A lot of important figures have been liars. Not to be confrontational, but what's your point?

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
