    oh and as an added bonus, if they compliment you and you feel like , let it show, get excited and they want to poke at you there even more and get excited themselves too, ENTPs do like to poke and playfully tease people(i dont understand how my ENTPs friends wife can stand him with all that constant teasing). the + positive reaction = a sign for them 'poke at here' which they cant resist.
    There is nothing that pleases me more than being able to poke at somebody and having them respond in an amused or at least not-negative way. I have no idea why. My best friend resolved herself to this fact like seven years ago, and to my glee, still has very pronounced reactions that just egg me on. My boyfriend of ten years (ENTJ) and I share this trait.

    So yes I'd say being able to handle a (sometimes) absurdly silly sense of humor with wit or not- patronizing tolerance, and being able to handle the intellectual side too is the way to go. My boyfriend knows somehow to occasionally mention that my ability to art/math/science/whatever is something that he acknowledges and really respects, and in return I respect his certain brand of wisdom/smarts. He is incredibly good at knowing situations among other things, very much an ENTJ to the core, and I can't help respect that he's got expertise in something I suck at lol. But he doesn't like pointout that I suck at it.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    In my experience (of being in a relationship with one for almost eight years), I’d say effectively explaining to them how they can be seduced is exactly the kind of thing that grabs their interest (seduces them). Do it wrong and you’re just annoying or offensive for being presumptuous, but if you can really and truly map out something that’s going on in their inner world to them (in a way they already intuit, but can’t begin to see clearly enough on their own to really grasp) they’ll be putty in your hands. [eta: I think it'd be better to say 'they'll be enthralled'. I wrote 'putty in your hands' to be funny, then realized if that wasn't clear it would probably just be annoying.]

    [I don’t know how widely this applies to all ENTPs, and it’s just my guess based on what I’ve seen. And I can’t stress enough the importance of it being ‘effective’. I think they love being tethered to their inner world correctly, but trying to tether them to an inner word that isn’t theirs will ‘clearly’ seem like projection and/or be oppressive.]

    judging from one ENTP friend at work...

    1. enjoy staying up late in bars
    2. have a wide breadth of interests
    3. don't be afraid of having your own quirks
    4. banter, banter, banter

    If none of the above, being a European soccer player is enough!

    For one thing, a physical poke. The best friend I mentioned, I will randomly poke her in the side on passing and she will squeak very loudly, always caught off guard. It's great. I can't help myself because there is never a time that she doesn't respond to that.

    But I guess I just mean, personally, light verbal jousting. Or, being weird to elicit a response. I should have probably followed the advice of every random joe in high school and become a comedian to get my jollies out that way, but I didn't. So now my friends get the show/trauma. Back in our early twenties, we both worked at the same dry cleaners, and you can't hear anything in there because of the machines and you can't see people coming from front to back because of the sheer number of clothes hanging in there. I turned into a clothes shark, sometimes my face, leering creepily, would appear between the sweaters as someone looked through them for a name, sometimes I would loom out at an opportune moment, and frequently the voice of gollum muttering sweet nothings would come from nowhere, bemoaning the fact that the precious is gone, GONE. I thought I was just lonely in a place meant for an introvert to work in, but I've finally realized I've always been that way.

    So I guess I mean gentle trolling. In the way that a first grade boy makes the girl he likes eat dirt. Sort of. Hahah.
