    Default Are INFP's boring???

    Are INFP's boring? For comparison purposes, what about INFJ's?

    Sometimes I feel like "INFP's: The most interesting people that you will never actually bother to talk to."

    Actually, it was a reaction to something I read on a thread over at the INFP forum

    I dated one and I don't think they are boring at all when they actually choose to talk and engage. When things need to be discussed and they shut down and/or freeze up because "they aren't good at sharing their feelings", it gets REALLY strange (boring is just one word that I would use for these moments; boring, awkward, strange, confusing, helpless, etc.).

    Me: I'm just trying to discuss something with you. Why is this so difficult? Just talk to me, that's all I'm asking.
    Her:
    Me: OK, look. I'm not mad. I'm not upset. Everything is fine. But, I need you to talk and communicate - it's a very normal part of successful relationships. And you're so smart too. You're very capable of communicating - you're just not doing it for some reason. What's up?
    Her:
    Me:

    A poster started a thread about how they thought extraverts succeed in life merely for being extraverted [like its some kinda secret code or set of rules everyone follows, "oh look, an extraverted person, how interesting! lets go talk with them and then hire them for this job even though they aren't actually qualified or anything", or something like that]. Apparently they thought noone really wants to talk with or listen to an introvert. Others posted back disagreeing, but I'm sure plenty of INFP's have felt that way at some point or other.

    Okay. That would suggest a personal insecurity of the poster, then. That which holds are attention is subjective, personal. You're not going to be interesting to everyone. These kinds of questions (Is 'X' boring? Am I boring?, etc) are pointless and are, in fact, the kinds of questions that bore me.
