    It's more like, where I can get excited, they've seen something related to it and are already bored.

    I do this...I get bored by things that seem formulaic or marketed to the lowest common denominator. I also don't get fangirly about very many things.

    Is this an NT trait though? I see xNFPs being bored with things all the time.

    Well then, if you ignore my first question: why do you feel the need to have to entertain them ?

    I get excited about non-intellectual stuff every day.

    Depending on random opinions of what trolling really is. Out of NT, NF, SP, and SJ, which type is usually accused of trolling....per-capita? Are trolling and stalking somewhat related to boredom?
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Hrm. I know I've got high standards (a lot higher than most people,) but if we're talking about things of entertainment, I've got one lowest common denominator: I have to be able to suspend my disbelief for the entire length of time and I have to be unaware that there is any acting going on. (This mostly pertains to movies and stuff.) Anything else...well, it's usually inter-relational, and in that case, I'm down for either chilling and talking about stuff and playing games. I'm not really outgoing, but that's because I'm an introvert.

    If there's something I've seen/learned before and I know that I'm gaining nothing from that activity, I'll become bored VERY quickly and then I can become angry, obstinate even. I usually learn from things, even if I'm going over them again, but when something is a complete waste of time, my body language guarantees that everyone knows I'm upset. Note: 8th grade German class was EXACTLY the same as 7th grade German. I went from being one of the best German students to one of the worst because it was intensely retarded.

    I have noticed that people frequently get a sense of validation from the ability to entertain me. If I were pleased more easily, they wouldn't get that.


    So isn't this a good thing?
