    Yez. I get bored. I even get bored when waiting for people to finish typing in IMs. Isn't that awful! Bad Laurie.

    Yea, this trait I have is abit interesting. The trade off is worth it, I don't know if other INFPs do this. It must be I value knowledge the movie can give me more than the personal dimension. I think this must be my more Ti/Te side.

    Yeah I can definitely see your point, it makes sense. I think I attempt to do the same thing but I extract the knowledge from what the character I respect or relate to experiences.

    Yes! Boredom is the great foe of my existence, and we are locked in permanent mortal struggle, one against the next; I throw a blow, he throws and blow, and then...! Who knows who shall be victorious?

    Kidding aside, I hate being bored. And I generally get bored when I'm not either dealing with people, reading, thinking, or writing (because reading and writing IS dealing with other people, in my mind). I mean, I can listen to music and get on the internet, because that's still connecting with other people, but even that gets boring after awhile, because it's not people-y enough.

    I agree that repetitive tasks are horribly boring. Once I understand something, I'm ready for the next thing. I have nothing to learn from washing this next cup, or folding this next towel. Luckily, society has adapted to this and usually one can watch tv, listen to music, or talk to someone while doing such repetitive tasks. But you get what I'm saying.

    however condescending it may sound, i find most people genuinely boring and anytime I'm in a large group I end up being the group leader; the storyteller. Someone to keep action going, and I don't do it just to entertain everyone else, its moreso to keep myself occupied and interested in whats going on, and if i relieve a number of other people's boredom simultaneously, cool.

    thats just a positive side effect to me adjusting to the boredom produced by others that i refuse to sit idly by and deal with

    Because you can't spell "Slaughter" without "Laughter"

    Okay. Uhm. I've been told I never complained being bored when I was a kid.

    Nowadays... I want to have something to chew all the time. I need external stimulation. I need to feel I'm in motion all the time and be involved with something that engages my motivation and enthusiasm.

    I need something new all the time. When there's not much going on, I start creating something myself.

    I rarely find people boring. But like someone stated above about their sensitive "bullshit-meter", I totally agree with it. I'll get bored with superficial interactions and people that are talking bs. I escape to my head and start playing with my imagination (similar in the manner of Amelie Poulain in that movie Amelie, although I hate that movie). The only "boring" people would be those who are extremely rigid and harsh and follow all the rules and authorities as its absolute value - that is boring, for me.

    Evasion of boredom has defined me all the way back to my earliest memories --- success in that effort has given me a life so rich, both within and without, that I am deeply grateful that this impulse is so strong ...
