countess- i would totally give you an answer!... but I don't think you are looking for the female perspective! :p
Nevertheless, intelligence is always appreciated in the opposite sex. It might not exactly be the answer the OP is looking for, but if someone can't hold their own with me, forget it.
However, like Niss said, I doubt this is type-driven.

Hey everyone! This is not a bad question. It is really an usefull one. I'm curious to know what a person can do to seduce you, to get your atention, to make you feel in love. And yes, a girl point of view would be so helpfull. ;] But all you ISTJs can make your point, they´re all usefull.

I kinda fell in love with an ISTJ girl recently. I spent some months with her... But it seems it didn't work, although I think I still like her a little.

Hugs!

Seduce is not the same as court or winning their heart. Seducing someone in this context results in sexual intercourse.

That's why this discussion is best suited for the more...uh, explicit forums.

So, you mean that if someone wants to get your atention, and make you get interested by him/her, they'll need to do something sexually driven?

Seduce, to my knowledge, by definition is to cause to another person attraction. A person can be seduced to an activity or idea (like playing football, ice cream ...) and in this case, a person (spend more time with her, make her a treat, etc. ..).

That's an incorrect definition of seduce. Particularly in the context of the OP question. To seduce an ISTJ would be to persuade or induce to have sexual intercourse.

Sounds like you are describing fascinating or charming someone, which would be more along the lines of allure.

Lure, ok. So be it. What to do to charm and lure an ISTJ?...

Intelligence is key for me too. I love random facts and really enjoy when a guy can bring up these types of things in everyday conversation. This is probably because I've always loved learning in general, and appreciate any chance to. Like most others, sense of humor is essential too, as well as common interests for some initial comfort. Personally, I love nerds, haha. Also, I really like a guy who remembers small (occasionally even petty) details of things we've discussed in the past. Oddly enough, as much of a planner as I am I don't want to be the one making the key efforts towards the beginning stages of a relationship. Probably due to ISTJ tendencies towards tradition and the ideas that men should exhibit dominance, you know, to a degree...so I want to let them have the reigns, making it important that I find a guy trustworthy enough to hold them. :wink:

I find that I feel this way as well. While I believe that it's imperative that we women be taken seriously in the world and the workplace (be treated fairly, no pay disparity, etc.) I also believe that it's the man's responsibility to provide for his family. If he has to work two jobs to do so, then so be it. It is his responsibility to make sure his family has a roof over their heads, food in their bellies, and safe from external threats. Yes, I am a traditionalist in that regard.

(Having said that, practical matters dictate that I have had to be the one to do so; I raised a daughter (and worked two jobs to do so; she's older and moved out now, but the fact of the matter was that she needed taken care of and I was her provider, because well ... no one else was there to do it!))

So ... yes, I am a traditionalist, but I am also a realist. Hope this helps.
