Yeah, I guess you have a point. But doesn't flattering mean more along the lines of "buttering up" someone?
I'd say thats definitley a stereotype! Although, I may not seem like it, put me in a group of people (especially with a female I find "interesting") and I will be very quiet and not say much. Yes, I am very shy.
But not online! I have the gift of anonymity.
I have never had luck with you females, but that doesn't stop me from coming back for more! But it's my own fault. I am picky with the girls I "fall" for.
Flirty is the word I was thinking of. I never imagined ISTJs to be flirty, whether that'd be online or offline.

I'm actually pretty picky when it comes to being attracted to a woman romantically, despite having pretty open standards. For instance, child bearing hips, upright posture, a height below 5'10", etc.
Married by 21?? Good heavens, dear! People are practically babies at 21! You have a lot of living left to do.
At 21, I was still half-wild, and the very thought of marriage made me climb the nearest wall. (Some of us hang onto our tomboy status a little longer than others *sheepish*)
I used to joke around with an ISTJ guy that was interested in my sister. He was pretty good-looking and sometimes when he rode his motorcycle to school, I'd tease him about his chaps framing his junk. He agreed.
"Now. Let's stand around and look awesome," he said.
I always took it as them being just more sure of themselves than me! lol I'm a squirrelly little booger, and they shake their heads at me like, "Tsk. Pity. That one is retarded." I generally acquire ISTJs through my ENFP sister. They'd make great BILs. *big grin*
But yes, the very idea of marriage at 21 gave me panic attacks. Even though I was getting pretty serious about an ENTP then... I would have seen myself at least engaged to him without a meltdown because I liked him that much.
an ISTJ wouldn't be bad to date, or be in a relationship with.. as long as they could handle me.
Jaye has a not so secret crush on Alec Baldwin.
Here's me and one of J's former ISTJ interests:
[Standing in the auto parts store, running errands with X after he and I ate lunch]
Me: [absent-mindedly staring at batteries for the truck]
X: [watching me] Why. Are you grabbing your own butt.
X: [bemused] You're grabbing your own butt. Both hands.
Me: [coloring] Really?
X: [low laugh] Your sister does that too when she's thinking. Weirdos.
Me: [removing hands and giggling]
X: [facetiously] Who told you to stop?!
Later we all stood around grabbing our own butts just for the heck of it. A group activity, if you will.
