    Default INTP Flirt?

    Do INTP's flirt with people for long periods of time without ever having any real intention of it progressing?

    Just curious =)

    Dang it. Tried to insert a .gif. Didn't work.

    Edit: The flirting is part of the process of figuring out if you want to sell the house and move to Moscow to be with the girl. That can take a year or three for INTP's. May God richly bless those who have something called patience.

    Yes.

    We are not usually the ones who make things progress. Male or female, INTPs tend to only do a serious pursuit if they're enamored to an extreme degree. Typically, at the point in which we pursue, we do it in an unhealthy and pushing-away type of way.

    If you're looking for INTP love, you're going to have to act more than they.

    But would the INTP flirt just to flirt is my point. Do INTP's flirt with people for long periods of time (years) if they really have no interest in someone? Or would they not waste their time?

    Hard to say. A young INTP might lead someone on and not care about the ramifications of that. I'd like to think that one who has a little life experience under their belt and a little compassion wouldn't do such a thing. Once I know that I'm not into someone in *that way*, I'll try really hard to NOT say flirtatious things, so as to not give a false impression. But, you know, also keep in mind that sometimes an INTP might just enjoy your company and your friendship - they may want to be your friend for years - someone they can relax and be silly with - yet never wanting more. That's possible too. I've had this crop up before. If you're in doubt, you may want to ask where you stand.

    I guess to answer more directly: no. I would not flirt for years if I wasn't into someone.

    It wouldn't be good for them and it would be highly inefficient for me.

    in real life, you wouldnt get that smooch if there wasnt mutual understanding that its just a joke. but since you live in the other side of world and this is the internets, its pretty obvious that its not going anywhere no matter how many of those i give you. and ofc this isnt just with smooch smilies. but dunno there might be some exceptions, but that would require something coming from the other person also, maybe..

    what sort of flirting are we talking about here?

    Haven't you ever heard of the saying, "I'm INTP; flirt harder"?

    Any individual person within any type is capable of flirting, but INTPs can be kind of earnest / too straightforward at times to always be flirting.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    oh yea. also if someone is playful with me, im most likely the same way back and if someone is serious woth me, im serious too. and its not just that i reply to playfulness, but more like i feel comfortable of being playful with you if you have been that way to me, but if someone is serious with me all the time, i dont feel comfortable of being playful with her/him. in real life that is, internets is a whole different thing
