In which professions/careers is being flirty a plus?

From your experience, what kinds of jobs would are easier or better suited for flirty people? And in which jobs would a tendency to flirt be a big negative?
For example, I can imagine some amount of flirtatiousness is advantageous in business situations (getting people to like you) but may not be useful in a medical research profession.
I'm particularly interested in ones that require at least a bachelor's degree or similar amount of education. People talk about "networking skills" or "friendliness" as professional skills, but flirting seems to be a slightly more specific "skill".
If you need a gender to work from, feel free to use mine (female), but I'm interested in more general answers too.
