    Thank you for your suggestion. Originally, the adjective intriguing did have this meaning in English, but now it is used to describe something that arouses interest or curiosity. If you used it to translate the sentence: Myriam finds her new colleague too intriguing, that would mean that Myriam thinks her colleague is fascinating and she is very curious about her. Therefore, I'm afraid I won't be adding intriguing as a translation for this term.
