We all know someone (or maybe it's you) who's a natural, unabashed, absolute flirt. Often without even realizing it, they turn on the charm and infuse every interaction they have with a magnetic vibe. If flirting was an Olympic sport, they'd definitely bring home the gold — and a new love interest, like, every other day. Chances are the person you're picturing now is one of the flirty Myers-Briggs personality types who has the very special gift of gab.
These personality types tend to be very outgoing, charismatic, and confident, so for them, chatting up someone they're attracted to is just about as easy as breathing. And honestly, they do it just as steadily. They have a knack for banter and aren’t afraid to use it. The one thing you might want to look out for? Miscommunication. While they definitely flirt with people they're interested in, a few of these types do it so effortlessly, they don’t even realize they're flirting with people they aren’t pursuing. Because when they turn their charm on you, it's electric, and it can feel like you're the only two people in the world.
Here are the Myers-Briggs personality types that are likely to sweep you off your feet with their advanced flirting game.
ENFJ (The Protagonist)
This personality type's outgoing nature and empathy makes them a formidable flirt. They're very tuned in to other people’s emotions and needs, and they can use this to their flirtatious advantage by making whoever they are chatting up feel truly seen. Making others feel good also just makes them feel good, so they're more than happy to lay on the compliments and boost your ego. When they're really interested, look out, because ENFJs have no problem going after what they want.
ENTJ (The Commander)
ENTJ commands attention with their larger-than-life personality and wicked sense of humor. They're a natural leader who isn't afraid to make the first move if they're attracted to someone. They leverage their quick wit and confidence to great effect, making whoever has their attention laugh, and eventually, swoon. It's hard not to get swept up in the charisma of this powerhouse personality.
ENTP (The Debater)
ENTP loves a challenge, and they view seduction as the ultimate puzzle. They take an analytical approach to flirting, starting with a deep conversation to get to know the object of their affection better, then using what they know to formulate the best strategy for flirting. They're very social and a great communicator, so they have plenty of opportunities to fine-tune their flirtation.
ESFP (The Entertainer)
ESFP is super outgoing, friendly, and the epitome of a “people person.” They ooze charisma and can’t help making friends and fans everywhere they go. What they don’t realize is that all this magnetism can easily be mistaken for flirtation. Everyone who meets them feels like they're having a special moment, so they tend to leave a trail of unintentionally broken hearts and unrequited love in their path. They don't mean any harm by this, they just love people and the attention that being a social butterfly earns them.
If you're one of these personality types, then you already know how powerful a strong flirting game can be. (If you’re not sure, you can take an online test to find out.) So, if you're looking for someone to have a cheeky chat with, these are the folks that'll keep up with your banter. But be careful... they might just steal your heart.
