As an INTP girl interested in an ISTP guy, I am in need of some help, especially in dissecting and analyzing this unusual ritual that I must partake in in order to further study this fascinating creature. He outwitted me so suffice to say I am hooked but confused as to how to go about it.
What signs or indication do you guys give to show that you are at least interested in someone new? Especially someone who is not a Feeler?
My situation: -
I have laid out some bait; knowing that the Se is strong with this type of unusual animal, I have lightly dusted my traps with promises of fishing, hiking or off-roading. None of the baits were taken. Like the fruitless Wile E. Coyote I went back to the drawing board.
He is the brother of a newish friend and thus I have little access and time to study his habits and temperament, with brief glimpses allowed whenever I came over (5x now). His brother has noted that the usually quiet and skittish ISTP had actually come out of his cave and graced us with his presence for longer than he usually does. While ISTP is usually quiet and leaves within an hour or so, he has stayed for hours on end with us when I'm around, all the while the both of us talked endlessly while two other friends idled away on their phones.
Still, the creature is skittish despite his masculine demeanor and confidence. While he talks his eyes are glued to mine, or look to me when he wishes to confirm a statement or joke - but when idle he looks anywhere but at me. No sneaky darting looks. No long quiet gazes that is common in this breed of MBTI.
He has not asked for my number nor will he while his brother is around. I have not asked for his, nor will I when I have no practical reason to (since he didn't take the bait for outings.) I am at a loss. Advise me and quickly, for the jungle is dark and his eyes draw me in.
