Topic of Boredom
I'm always a bit aggravated when someone tells me they're bored. I'm one of those people whom are almost never bored. I can easily sit in a quiet house with no television, music, human interaction, or internet and still not be bored. I've wasted many a days in my life just sitting in silence. It allows my mind room to think... and how can thinking be boring? I do also keep myself busy with my own interests and hobbies. Sometimes, I also just enjoy observing. When I am interacting with others, I have little expectation for others to entertain me. If someone is overly entertaining, then yes of course I'll laugh and have fun. But I also enjoy non-overly exertive people as well. I take the time to get to know people, or simply enjoy the more laid back interaction. And if I feel someone else is feeling bored, then I amp up my own personality and become silly and will entertain the person I'm interacting with. I find most things in this world to be interesting, and will always find something to take out of every experience.
My question is, is this because I'm an introvert and I just don't need outside stimuli?
People will often tell me things, such as, "I can't stand being by myself." Or, "I can't stand this town, there's never anything to do." And I always wonder to myself, "Why can't people find the simple pleasures in life to be just as fun or entertaining or silence to be rewarding and inspiring?"
I feel as though I've even met introverts whom will make the statement, "I'm bored." Is this an introvert whom has been too distracted from their own self?
Or is boredom type related? Or is it not type related at all, but rather has to do with levels of health?
