    Huh? Are you comparing me to the actual Sherlock Holmes? I'm flattered but I think he'd be annoyed. Especially since there was some suggestion of an actual desire for some sort of relationship in there. And Sherlock Holmes is not beyond flirting either. Remember when he got engaged to solve a case?

    Step 1) Spot a girl or guy who is attractive and who you have NEVER talked to before. (btw this has to be in like a coffee shop or some place were the other party is not too busy)
    Step 2) Force yourself to talk to them about something appropriate in the situation. i.e. Damn these lines are always too long, or I've never seen a ___ like that before. (though you actually have)
    Step 3) This is the hardest part! Keep it going. I dont expect you to do a good job, in fact the reason I said to make sure you have NEVER talked to the person before is because the experiment is designed to fail.

    Psych yourself up, nothing bad can really happen when your just trying to make small talk. Before you go on this mission, tell yourself you are about to fail and make sure that you know with 100% certainty that this will be the outcome. I know it sounds strange but it can help. INTs have a tendency to see every potential SO they talk to as the ONE. This hurts our ability to hold any significant casual conversation. There is a headfake to this experiment but I really want any INTP or INTJ who is struggling with casual conversation to do the steps exactly as prescribed.

    I'm a INTJ granted but I, like alot of other INTJs, test as INTP often. I suck at casual conversation but I get dates all the time now. It's the first hump thats the hardest to get over. It gets so much easier once you know the person, just allow yourself to get in.

    Also, don't give me the "This is not my true personality" rationalization for why not to do it, I don't want to hear it. If you want help, do the experiment, otherwise continue to fish for pity from all the Extraverts out there that think your just soo cute.
    Practicing casual conversation <> flirting.
    I don't know why you are setting yourself up as some kind of expert if you don't even understand that fairly significant difference.

    Yeah, and it bugs me when people confuse the two. Flirting is not the same as engaging in an interesting conversation with someone.

    Flirting is a sport. That's why ESTPs love it so much.

    Yeah, conversations not that difficult. We just have to find a flaw and speak it to rouse a discussion. Flirting, on the other hand has a certain intent behind it that is unavoidable. It's presenting yourself to be 'taken'. It's a rather constrictive gesture.

    Flirting is for people who like to beat around the bush. I prefer to beat off onto a bush so I get straight to the point.
