An ex of mine told me point blank he was "bored with me" at one point. (OUCH.) But someone else told me I'm one of the most interesting people he knows.
I don't think I'm boring at all. It's just that Introversion acting up and making me too reserved. I tend to only talk if it's already a topic, or if it's useful, and I'm not a risk taker at all. Plus I feel very uncomfortable with attention, so I don't attempt to gain it or put myself out there.
Though I do tend to be able to make my friends laugh. If for no other reason than my ditziness or.. how much they think my serious opinions or random thoughts are funny.

My social skills start shrinking when I'm by myself too much. I like my alone time and the freedom it gives me. But after a while I realize uh-oh, I'm turning into a socially awkward hermit. And I'm bored. My whole personality gets more depressed, not that I get depressed per sae, but I get quieter, energy levels lowers, I take longer to respond to things, I get really really toned down and more in my head. I probably dump the first person I hang out with with all this crazy energy and disconnected nonlinear talk until I sort out my levels. I also start getting less agressive/assertive, which is not good if you live in the city. It takes me longer to register when a stranger is talking to me and longer to figure out a response.
It all starts with what your type considers as boring.
I know many E's for instance who bore me to death, cause all they EVER want to do is party. I don't know about other INFJ's, but I'm interested in just about everything, and I can talk about any subject (from soccer to quantummechanics), and have fun with it. But I can imagine I'm boring for some people, simply cause I don't dance.
It's funny that some of you say that you get "bored". I don't think I've ever been "bored" my whole entire life. So many things interest me...
I get bored all the time.
I need constantly new stimulus, new people, new things, new happenings, anything novel keeps me enthusiastic
... at least for a while and then when it gets routined, I get bored again.
I would never ever be satisfied with just the routine, actually I try to avoid anything that is routine. And that reminds me of one person that seems to love routine, one of my relatives. I have lots of trouble understanding her motivation in life. She is apparently ESxJ. Her world is full of routines and must be done-happenings. She is almost too responsible, always doing what should be done, always doing chores at home, always going around. She makes me mad sometimes just to watch her going around and doing things all the time. She never relaxes. But on the other hand.. her house is tidy, clean and orderly and mine is not...
