Thread: Do you become bored easily??

  1. #11

    Default

    I can sometimes feel bored, bored by situations. It is just restlessness and a feeling there is not enough to sink my teeth into. When I was a kid we were always told to go outside or much worse
    ... clean when we said we were bored.

    I’m easily entertained so I don’t necessarily get bored easily, but I don’t like sitting around for too long doing nothing or else I’ll get antsy. I’ll start to feel like I’m a caged animal. It feels like a ball of energy starts to pile up in the pit of my stomach and I need to release it otherwise my body will start to feel a little uneasy.

    So several times during the day I have to just go outside and walk around to burn off my pent up energy. I have no problems being by myself or spending a lot of time just thinking, but I’m like a dog that needs to be walked every day.

    I get insanely bored easily. Think it must be some kind of disorder.

    Sometimes i get bored and crave adventure (this is when i really miss my car), but other times i just sit and go off somewhere in my mind, lose touch with reality and i love it.

    I am very bored by particular situations, and am easily bored when forced into situations - let's say like jobs I've hated or when people are watching sports - but when I am on my own I have such a wide range of interests I can entertain myself.

    There seems to be an endless supply of things to learn and think about, and I'm not bored by things that some are bored by, such as history.

    I sometimes think that Sensors are more easily bored when there's nothing to do, like my ESFJ ex thought it was crazy that I've lived through months and years of my life without owning a television (though I do watch tv currently). I also noticed that an ISFJ male I know seems to get quite bored and expects others to entertain him if there's nothing "to do."

    So I'm sure all people get bored just in different situations for different reasons.

    I suppose I don't think of boredom as restlessness.

    I sometimes start to feel as though I'll begin getting cabin fever if I stay inside too much. But I guess my personal definition of boredom is feeling unstimulated or uninspired by the current situation, or by an idea or person. And the need to release energy, to me, isn't the same thing.

    I have a tendency towards spending too many days at home and inside. So, sometimes I feel as though I need to take off and exert the energy or just have a change in scenery.

    My idea of what boredom is, is sitting in a math class, incapable of staying focused on topic due to a monotone teacher and wanting to fall asleep. Sometimes, I think restlessness and anxiousness are quite the opposite of boredom. Too much stimulation and an uncertainty of knowing what to do with oneself.

    I do think that sometimes people just toss around the word "bored." But even that's a bit irritating to me. I have a tendency to retort back, "If you're bored, you're boring."

    I am exactly like this! I do that too! I have to go outside several times a day and walk, but I can do it alone and don't have to have a particular goal, it's just walking to burn off restlessness, and so that I am not always sitting or inside a building.

    I think boredom and restlessness are two different things, like IndyAnnaJoan touched on...restlessness almost seems more physical, like you aren't getting enough exercise or sunlight or interaction with other people? I also think I get restless when I'm sleep deprived...I experience it as being "boredom" but it's my brain's way of saying "let's go to sleep now." Either that or being so tired that you're wired, that kind of thing.

    I get cabin fever when it rains heavily every day or if I try to stay inside for more than half a day, and/or if I don't have any real-time interaction with other people.

    Ne - Rarely bored. :3 I keep myself entertained, and being entertained doesn't take much honestly. I have my bored days, but usually I am well occupied.

    To the bold--Good point.

    Although, the reason I brought up this thread was geared mostly towards those whom have a hard time finding content with silence (their self, and needing to find others to entertain them) and also with towns or cities they reside in (constantly complaining that this place or that place is awful because there isn't anything to do).

    I won't lie though, I can become bored by sports or subjects like math. And sometimes there are people that are just dull who will bore me. But that's typically when I'll retreat to my own mind. I just don't rely on outside stimulation, such as other people or television, to entertain me.

    But do those people just need more action? Maybe I was too hasty in saying that mainly Sensors get bored when there's nothing "to do." Maybe this is more indicative of SJ-ness (aren't they the "doers" of MBTI, anyhow?) or Se-dominance, because the Se constantly craves new sensory stimulation. This may be part of the reason people say ISxPs are the closest to being N...though they disagree whether it's ISFP or ISTP. Maybe it's just equally both.

    I won't lie though, I can become bored by sports or subjects like math. And sometimes there are people that are just dull who will bore me. But that's typically when I'll retreat to my own mind. I just don't rely on outside stimulation, such as other people or television, to entertain me.
    I am very easily bored when I cannot learn or occupy my mind, like I said at monotonous jobs or jobs that simply don't suit my interests, or when confronted with something inane to me mentally, like sports or soap operas.

    But I do need external stimulation a lot of the time - this is probably Ne dominance, I do need books or films or the Internet or interesting conversation - but I don't expect other people to entertain me, I am quite adept at being alone and entertaining myself, and I have plenty of interests which do not involve a television or discussion with others. Like I said, I sometimes feel like the things I want to learn or read about are endless.
