but i'm a type 7 and being trapped and bored literally feels like cellophane wrapped around my face and any sort of negative feeling almost gets expressed angrily....perhaps because negativity pisses me off. haha
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
I don't get bored. I have the opposite problem - not enough time to read my books and do the things I want. If I ever feel "boredom," it's almost always because I am "trapped" with someone talking my ear off about nothing. Sort of like being stuck in a Seinfeld episode WITHOUT all the funny stuff. Uggh- torture.
OP- I notice your MBTI is the same as a friend of mine who has always complained of "boredom" here and there. She also would lose patience for scenarios that I might be perfectly content in. Could boredom really be a "stuck" feeling as well- perhaps for an introvert being "over exposed" for a time to extroverts? I know that can be draining. Even for me -- a major E.
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~e.e. cummings
People who can't handle boredom are often those who can't handle introspection.
I can handle it as long as I have time to become suicidal. Otherwise it's better if I keep my mind busy.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
