    i have no idea.

    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

    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.

    I'm ok with boredom when I can just like go off into my own head or something.

    What I can't stand is being overwhelmed by boring tasks to do.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    People who can't handle boredom are often those who can't handle introspection.

    I rarely get bored. Even when nothing stimulates me, my thoughts amuse me.

    If I do get bored, I just go on a walk and the blood starts pumping enough to generate something interesting.

    I'm not saying boredom is great or anything, but for just a little bit of it drive them crazy????
    It sounds like whoever you're talking about simply has a conflict of interests with you. Perhaps you're not bored in the situations they find themselves to be bored in.

    Some people just embrace inactivity more, while others start to fidget if they experience reoccurring thoughts.

    Probably and introversion / extraversion correlation there.

    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.”

    I'd say I'm seldom bored.

    I generally find something to do, no matter what it is.

    Even if it's just relaxing and imaginining something. I'm a Law of Attraction practitioner, so this helps lol.. Maybe I'll enter it full-time for pay soon, who knows? lol.
