My thoughts just drift off as soon as the situation allows for it and I start daydreaming.
    My Mum used to complain that I was so lost in my thoughts as a little girl that between putting on the right shoe and the left shoe I had already forgotten what I was doing and sometimes took off the first shoe after putting on the second one because I had forgotten if I was coming or going.
    lol. the shoe thing is pretty damn cute.

I think it took a bad turn for awhile and I gravitated towards whatever fantasy existed out in the world. Sometimes I'd do something illegal or risky or ditched some good (but boring) people for crazier ones. I want life to be.. epic or something. I feel gypped sometimes, but I don't know what to do about it.
    haha. yeah, i've always said that i'm more likely to be bored when surrounded by people than when i'm on my own.

    i think as a child, i was very lost in my thoughts and imagination... it's why i always thought i could potentially be an INFP, but ISFP was always much more fitting. i think i was just stuck in Fi/Ni loops as a child!

    but i know that feeling of wanting more out of life. something epic. it's why i'm so in love with fantasy and sci fi. though it always makes me a little disappointed when back in reality. however, my imagination can be quite good at making daily life more of an adventure. but i'll often discount myself into having the "life's a playground" mindset... i'm just playing. i think this is another one of those reasons i was so in love with my INFP ex. his ability to make connections and create meanings out of the mundane really played out well with my need for adventure even in the mundane.

    I have a child who says he is bored if there is even a 5 minute lull between activities.

    Honestly, I only find myself bored once a year or so. It is a crippling sort of boredom, where I think "Maybe a movie? A book? Drawing? Writing? Sleeping? .. This...? .. That...? Perhaps one of those other things?" yet nothing will suffice. It's a time where I might as well stare at the ceiling, because I will exhaust every other option and beating myself into a motionless submission is all that is left that doesn't feel too off.
    Otherwise, I absolutely cannot stand people who claim they are bored and demand entertainment. I really can't fathom it more than 'every now and then'. There are so many ways to occupy one's self, even in doing absolutely nothing. I've heard another ENFJ exclaim they are bored, but it was more so just a cry for being social. Otherwise, a lot of introverts I've known have declared boredom, but none of the NFPs.

    When I'm alone and free to do as I please I'm almost never bored. Quite the opposite in fact- I'm often overwhelmed by all the options of what I could do and knowing that I won't be able to do them all. It's a different story when I'm in situations that are not of my choosing and when I have to endure them without the opportunity for much stimulation. Examples would be sitting in a waiting room without good reading material, when I'm dragged to church with family, or in a boring meeting. Those situations I find extremely boring.

    I don't get bored that often, I like time to spend inside my head, but I know people who fear it.

    My mom would always say "only boring people are bored," which in retrospect was probably her way of telling us to get out of her hair, she had her own stuff to do. If there's nothing interesting to do, find something to do, go play outside, make something, or read a book. I think I internalized that a little bit.

    Or she would give us chores to do if we whined about being bored.

    I've had problems with boredom for my whole life.

    But I think I realized recently that it was just anxiety.

    well, that's always basically been my saying as well when friends whined to me.

    however, recently as i've become somewhat depressed and lethargic, i've found myself feeling bored. just sort of unstimulated by things that normally stimulate me, and unwilling to do any sort of hobby or exercise or anything.
