    Default I am not impressed with your performance.

    I feel like I'm not really impressed by a lot of things around me. I know things a lot so I don't encounter new information often, and when I do, I find it rather hard to be interested in.

    Any other NFs/ENFJ's feel like this? I read somewhere that ENFJ's are not easily excited. I agree.

    I think they pick what they get excited about.

    What is the subject matter you talk about when you talk about not being impressed? Is it people? Artwork? There are different ways to go with this.

    Usually when something I like isn't mentioned or I'm not being taught something new and useful. I get bored. I like to benefit from what I hear, perhaps I am lacking ways to benefit from what I hear instead.

    Ah, that may be it. That isn't not being impressed, that is not having things to impress you.

    What situations would you mean by 'something I like isn't mentioned'?

    In those situations, I tend to focus on the speaker more than the content of the words. Why is the speaker dressed the way he/she is? How does he/she carry herself? What can I deduce based on what he/she presents?

    Though it is dangerous to do such thinking if you are the only member of the audience, it certainly does make the conversation more interesting. And when you've obtained some interest in the speaker, the content is easier to listen to.

    Whoops, I made the assumption that someone was physically speaking to you. If it is just, "the conceptual" which fails to catch your interest, then I too fall prey to this phenomena.

    and here i was thinking you'd actually say something interesting. this really isn't worth bragging about.

    I get pretty excited about everything or at least interested. Life's to awesome to be apathetic about it!

    This amounts to being "leader", doesn't it. It's you who chooses what's interesting and not, what gets talked about and what doesn't.


    Holla back, Ni.
