    Default How do ISTJs flirt?

    Specifically females, but males are okay to know too. I'm just curious.

    Perhaps a virus has been released upon the less fortunate among us.

    Ummmm, badly? My flirting is really subtle (probably to the point of being unnoticeable). It usually involves witty banter, lots of sarcasm, and just joking around constantly.

    Quite frankly, I'm awful at emotional things...I don't know how to express my emotions outwardly without it being awkward. I feel a lot and think a lot on the inside, but getting those feelings to come out is a very rare occurrence, and usually makes me slightly uncomfortable -- and this occurrence has to happen naturally with someone that I am VERY comfortable with and trust a lot.

    If you have ever gotten an ISTJ to "spill their emotional guts" to you, consider yourself very blessed. They'll likely stick around as a friend (or more) for life.

    As for flirting through being seductive or something, you can probably forget about that. We usually don't stand out in a crowd, and unless the ISTJ you're talking about is smokin' hot and actually has the confidence to go along with it, we probably dress more on the conservative side.

    I'm really trying to think here...I know what I don't do, but saying what I do do is very tough. Usually the people that have asked me out in the past just said that I was "different." It's probably that I don't try and stick out...I'm just myself and don't try to force things. I never take initiative. I figure if something will happen, it'll happen eventually. Kind of like the whole "waiting" thing that was mentioned in the Male ISTJ thread.

    You know what my ISTJ brother-in-law did? He would invite my sister over to watch tv with him. It took quite a while for my sister to realize that he thought they were "dating". It's kind of cute, really.

    Recoleta's post sounds a lot like me, too, even though I'm a male. I was thinking of starting a reply with the same joke! That's funny.

    But let's let the females reply.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    If they're male, they change the oil in your car. Gets me all excited.

    I was away from home for quite a while this last winter and one day I called my ISTJ husband up and said, "Flirt with me a little bit."




    Looooooooooog silence.

    I can imagine!! I actually heard a story last night that I absolutely died laughing about!!
    Ditzy girl: <Waking up the next morning after escapades.> I want.. Pancakes! <hopeful look!, starry eye'd!>
    ISTJ: <Looks at her.> No.
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.

    Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
    prplchknz: i don't like it

    I can only think of one SJ flirting experience, she might have been ISFJ, and it was the opposite of subtle. Like hormones took over and she temporarily turned from typical to...Stripper maybe?
