    Default ISTp Women: signs of interest

    Im infatuated with one currently.

    how do you know if their interested in you romantically?

    how will they behave(compared to with other people)?

    Is there anyway to gauge their interest/test it out?

    Maybe you should stick to INTps?

    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    Mate, I wish I knew the answer to this with women of any type, lol.

    But ISTp girls? Dunno, I had one share some of her food with me in a pub recently. Maybe that counts as a sign?

    I don't think they tend to be very "romantic" at all. It's more like they experience both life with your regular presence and life without it - and discover by themselves that the former is preferrable.

    In my experience, "infatuation" is the surest way of scaring most potential mates off before you even get into a situation where you can formally express interest.

    Been there, done that. Even with a SiTe many years ago.

    This is pure wisdom, take note.

    my ISTp friend hits on guys by touching their arm or usually something physical like that. I think that she makes it clear when she likes something w/ our group of friends she will definitely compliment people, so I would imagine she'd say things directly to guys she liked (as compliments).

    She's told me though that she's not "girly" in that she won't go giggle and put her head on a guy's shoulder. (Though I have seen her giggle). She seemed to think that was bad, but I explained how guys actually think it's cool and get annoyed when the girl is clingy and stuck to them constantly (which is more how I am). I personally think that ISTps in general are so great at wrapping people around their fingers w/ their hot/cold behavior and then being completely aware at the flock of stalkers following them.

    I will admit i was infatuated by this girl from uni a while back. She would say she would go out on dates with me then reneg on them and not answer her phone. Then she would tell me "please dont leave" on msn etc. It drove me absolutely bat shit insane and created some strange attraction i had never felt. Luckily it didn't take me long (2 or 3 months) to snap and realise that she was far too flaky. Now i realise that she does the same things to her girlfriends, they are often upset she doesn't answer her phone. Strange one.

    I think the easiest sign of interest is how they look at you. A ISTp girlfriend of this dude at soccer used to always look at me and she confirmed it by calling me sexy one day. One recently was always walking next to me in groups of people, looking me in the eyes, laughing at my jokes. When the car was full one time she went to sit on my lap but someone decided to jog home so she didn't. That all changed very quickly but im kind of glad because shes from Colorado and chews tobacco which is gross. Shes also highly christian and i find that very unnatractive. Im kind of just enjoying watching her date and break up with people on facebook.

    Thats about all ive ever noticed though ahha. Good luck!

    I suggest you take your own advice.

    Flirt with them.

    As an ENFp, it shouldn't be difficult for you to get some moderate game going. I would be willing to bet that type plays second fiddle in how they respond in general.
