    Though he was likely an ENTP.

    My INTP friend once told me he liked this girl for three years and never told her. I believe that.

    In general, I notice if they want to say something, they'll say it. It's more when they're scared of the response they get that they shy away from saying anything. They're more scared of hurting others' feelings than some of them would care to admit.
    Strong feelings and attraction often come after establishing a friendship.

    The difficulty can came come from a combinations or things.

    a) Fear of rejection.
    b) Knowing that if I'm rejected, I would have to deal with me handling my emotions (continually) while possibly being friend zoned. It can be easier just to never admit to them.
    c) Not wanting to loose her as a friend, because I may feel she may doubt my intentions from that point forward.
    d) over-thinking reason d
    e) over-thnking reason e
    f) ...

    INTP - The Thinkers

    Game plan:

    -Observe

    -Try to be helpful to them in the most meaningful way possible. (Iv'e read that INTP's need to be needed in a relationship. Seems true to me. I do it for sure, and Iv'e known a couple of male INTPs who've been helpful.. to show their interest.. I think.)

    -Ease up a bit, be a (sort of) normal friend. Hide intense interest. Use intense interest to stew on the idea of the person forever. Use Ne and intense interest to be charming and funny without being flirtations.

    -Give the person a fair hint.

    -Once completely comfortable, confess knowing you've already had a meaningful friendship with someone you care about.

    Hope some of that helps, good luck with the character. :)

    Do you think this is realistic?

    Feel free to ask me anything about the screenplay/ character.
    No, I do not think this is at all realistic, unless the argument has something to do with the girl being in/putting herself in some sort of danger. Then the protectiveness kicks in and you have a fine storm for INTPs doing things they didn't fully intend on doing. (e.g. you have to do this for me because I like you, I'm overeating because I like you.)
    The only other thing I can imagine an INTP getting in an argument over is when they are certain about a thing and another person is spreading misinformation, not the most romantic setup.

    I'd be curious to know what you intended the circumstances to be, and I agree with a lot of what has already been posted.

    Good point. I actually had this experience with my first affection, though my cover held. I felt like a f'king knight after I defended her from bully, but decided to go low profile with this protection to save her possible backlash of teasing - we were just kids and you never know how other kids would act anyway if my affections were discovered.
