    I'm boring when bored, and most people bore me, sooo.....

    They say only boring people get bored.

    I don't find the INFP's I know boring.

    (I'm still on a toss between I or E myself)

    I have INFP friends, well more like 1 in real life anyway and a few online lol but the one in real life doesn't talk as much as me, tends to sit down listening to me waffle on for hours.

    I don't find him boring though, it can be tough carrying the conversation at times for me, but once I throw something at him that captures him he will start bouncing back my ideas at me (he still can't talk as much as me though lol).

    I think he is a laugh, and not boring at all.

    When I'm around infp's I feel relaxed, I feel like I can unleash my Ne without judgement (like I'm insane), and that they will totally get it.

    It's not boring, it's comfortable and relaxing and I don't actually find that boring.

    When we went to see foo fighters together, he was far more rowdy than me.

    INFP's are really, really, really interesting to talk to. Not boring, never.

    That is so true. They're amazing. I've gotten to know a couple of INFPs more closely over the past few years and they're the funniest and the greatest people I've ever met.

    It's not a surprise to me because I'm always trying to look for more than meets the eye. If I could only overcome my hesitancy, I don't like to be too intrusive

    But it always feels like so many people are missing out on their awesomeness.

    I'm inclined to think so from personal experiences.

    I'd love if people would come to me to talk but at the same time I'm trying my hardest to blend in to the background. Personally, I dislike sitting around, doing nothing. I'm always either secretly people-watching while pretending to read, with my headphones on or writing or doing these things all at the same time because I don't want people to think I'm staring at them.

    I can imagine how this would make me look like difficult to approach. I'm not! I'm always wondering: How am I to advertise that I'm approachable? Should I simply sit there, smiling, trying to catch eye-contact?
    Doing something like this feels very, very awkward. Neeeeeeeedy.

    The domino effect? A thinks that B is boring, it shows and B is mirroring A's behaviour, causing the A to think that B is boring...

    And all the while both A and B are really interesting people

    It's because you guys are damned invisible. After talking to Udog, Ihave been trying to engage the INFPs. You guys are like faries.

    "hi INFP, how are you?" Down go the eyes in a sweet Fi way and you deflect the conversation onto somebody else in the room. Like you have force fields or something.

    Then I look up and you have vanished into the mist.....

    INFJs are more solidified and I really like them and engage quite a bit with them. Ni is the ultimate Ne bullshit detector.

    not at all. i really appreciate their company. ive sometimes hung out with my closest infp friend from night to morning. their opposite, the estj bore the shit out of me! granted this is from an intps perspective and i find alot of things that socieity deems boring as facinating. i notice infps are not the greatest at telling jokes, even if their beyond type nack for humor is amazing. i.e. a brain that has potential for great comedy combined with an infp makes a medium level joker. it might be because they're too serious (but with every flaw comes a strength.)
    except for their emo-ish hair cuts, they dont stand out much.... and emo's dont even stand out!

    dont mind me, talking crap.

    In a word...No!
    I love INFPs, they are more stable than ENFPs yet are on the same wavelength. They can enough sense without going off on excited tangents!

    Hmmm, I'm wondering if it was my comment that sparked this...

    I think 80% people think I'm insanely boring. The things that interest me, consequently the stuff I like to talk about, often leaves people with either this glazy eyed expression or a WTF look. I don't think they dislike me - they just think I'm a harmless weirdo. I would have to say I'm not the sort of person people ever really hate, nor am I the person people really like. To me, this = boring.

    As for the other 20% of people:
    - 18-19% tolerate my 'boring-ality' because they kinda like me despite it.
    - 1-2% really connect with me and find me interesting

    I'm not being a cry-baby about it. Its just something I've come to accept. But I agree with Johnathanthegreat: I think those 80% of people are pretty boring themselves - so not much lost.
