    Nice dodges!
    I have no problem admiting that many people find me boring and at times have not been shy at all in telling me so. My SP/SJ in-laws in fact have said that I am the most boring person they ever met. What is it to me? I am never bored so I see it as other people's problem, not mine. I am grateful that the leave me alone so I can focus on reading and thinking more and less on catering to their ridiculous egos and fancies. People tend to annoy me and try to avoid making deep contact with them if they do... which may very well explain why many of them find me boring.

    I could not agree more.

Or just to be able to judge for yourself what parts of them you consider negative - but they'll only share their fluffy side.

    Like I said 'over there', it's not so much that I think the INFJ that I mentioned is actually boring - she has a personality alright, and she's intelligent - but God knows what it takes for her to actually feel like showing it!!
    How old is this INF? I was like that around most everybody except my husband and father until my early 30s.

    I would say according to my age group, my peers would consider me boring (non-drinker, non-smoker, non-partier). I know I put off a very muted, nondescript impression to strangers. I am not animated or lively unless I know someone well.

    I don't consider myself boring though, because I can literally be alone all day and never feel bored.

    I agree with this as well. People who make the most noise often have the emptiest minds. Highly energetic, loud, attention seeking individuals are like little yappy dogs in my opinion. I tune them out.

    Often, but not always!

    The only people who have ever found me boring are people with empty heads (who I found far more boring than they found me).

As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    oh, you are an entp. of course you think infj's are boring. it just makes sense. hate to say it but entp's are kind of loud and hog the conversation. I have a friend who is an entp. he is great. he is a comedian (so he's funny - ha, ha. that kinda goes with the territory) and he talks about himself, his ideas, etc. almost all the time. i cannot get a word in edgewise so i am sure if you asked him he would say i am boring. now my introverted friends who listen to me would tell you i am not boring in the slightest and that i am one of the most interesting people they have ever met. so, that's my two cents. maybe if you stop talking so much and give your infj friend some space she might just surprise you. look deeper.

    ok, after all I have said to challenge you I just realized that I know some introverts (mostly INFP's) who I find totally boring for the very same reasons you gave...they don't bloody talk! I ask them questions, I share things with them, spend time with them, listen if they ever do talk but it's so much damn work and I usually do most or all of the talking since I cannot stand that much uncomfortable and awkward silence. But there are other INFP's, ENFP's and INFP's I know or have known where this is not the case at all. Even some ISTP's can be interesting to me. I can find almost anyone interesting depending on the situation. I don't find my ENTP friend boring as much as I find him to be selfish and arrogant. Can we start a thread called, are ENTP's arrogant?

    Default There is no way I'm boring- I entertain myself thoroughly,lol!

    To most people I seem like an extrovert- because I am very much a lively character. I love rocking the boat- and not just by way of words but by also expressing myself through clothing and any artistic venue. I don't like concensus mentalities- even if I agree with the mentality being presented- I like balance and full representation and inclusion of all sides.

    I don't think NF's are boring- I think perhaps NF's don't let eveyone in on their thoughts and their jokes- there is a rich secret world going on and it is a emotional studio 54 where you have to be found worthy enough to be invited in,lol. I think if the NF is confident and passionate about a subject they are very interesting- it is a matter of them feeling accepted first perhaps. NF's might be more fun and interesting in person too where as I could see NT's being more interesting online. A lot of the entertainment of NF's is facial and body language- eyebrow raise of judgement a classic I like to sport,lol.

    It is only in recent years that I have formed and have been openly shairng my opinions so I don't think that it was natural for me in the beginning.

    I can entertain myself extremely easily- I can make myself laugh more than anyone else in the world,lol-and am interested in everything so if another person isn't so easliy interested in anything then I can imagine that they would perceive me as boring. I don't know if this is more because of my introversion though- finding mental/emotional stimulation from the inner self and all. I feel that that is one of my strengths- being able to be in any surrounding and entertain myself.

    Plus I think thinkers will either find amusing or annoying but enterained nontheless at the emotional craziness and whimsy of the NF's. Not making sense can be quite mysterious and interesting.
