    I can see why this statement is made, some NFs will never do anything that rocks the boat or take a controversial position to avoid offending others.

    I don't agree with this, I find other aspects of NFs very interesting.

    But I wonder, do you view yourself as boring? Non-NFs, do you find NFs boring?
    Not to poke at a dead thread but I feel a need to say hell no!

    My goodness, you must not have been thinking about ENFX when you asked that. I can't believe anyone would think the typical ENFP is boring.

    Uncontroversial? HA HA HA HA. Remember the NF Crusaders, MacGuffin, crusaders.

    And no, I did not bother reading through pages 2-11.

    Default What? Me boring?

    *shrugging shoulders* Personally, I don't think I am boring. I can, however, talk my boyfriend to sleep over the phone. (He's so sweet; he says it's because my voice is so soothing and hypnotic, I lull him to sleep.) He's good, isn't he?

    Regarding the statement about NFs not rocking the boat, there are instances where conflict is boring to me. It is those times when you are forced to think, "here we go again." What many people find stimulating, I find boring in the same way a fire alarm is boring, or the constant ringing of a phone. Predictable intrusions are really bleh to me. Actual controversy, not just for the sake of it, can be rather interesting. My perspective on keeping things "pleasant" is a kind of emotional efficiency. In the way an INTJ prefers efficient technical systems, I prefer efficient subjective systems including emotional ones. It's close to how wild animals function. They conserve energy in ways that could appear mundane. They do this so they have the reserves to meet the real challenges with all their ferocity.

    I can see how that image is a bit dull.

    I'm so boring, I cause people to see through time. Hideously, preposterously, eye-rolling, brain-death-inducing DULL. I make a grey world greyer, I make the demotivated even more disenfranchised. My personal color at the make-up counter: putty.

    Bland bland bland. Like a Lutheran potluck.

    I should know -- when the Lancome lady told me, she immediately began weeping to relieve the intense energy-draining boredom malaise settling over her.

    I dont think I'm boring at all. If I were I dont think I'd have so many friends. I mean I probably am a bit dull around people I'm not comfertable with, I really have nothing to say to them and I am quite repetitive. (Which isn't really something I mean to do) But I would understand why that wouldn't be fun, and can be somewhat annoying. But other than those little situations, I wouldn't put myself in the boring category.

    This also really depends on your definition of "boring".
    For instance, a lot of people seem to define sensationalism as being exciting and entertaining, but I don't.

    I find fascination to be a much more important factor in deciding whether or not something is entertaining. NF's can be very fascinating, so in that regard, I would not say they are boring at all.

    ...

    ...as of late, I've been unable to use the word "fascination" and not think of the Bowie song...

    Agreed!

    That's so nice to hear! I've been told that, but I wonder sometimes...
