    Default Are you boring?

    We are boring when we are only interested in ourselves and manipulate others.

    We can become more interesting when we identify with something larger than ourselves, and become authentic, when we give up our false self, and discover our true self, and share it with others.

    It takes 22 years for our physical brain to be fully grown, so for 22 years we struggle, mein kampf, to be interested in something or even someone outside of ourselves, and we struggle to find our true self, and share it with others.

    This means almost all adolescents are boring, some of them have the courage to struggle out of it, while some never succeed. And by the time we are 40, we get the mind we deserve.

    If we are introverted, we can be boring for others, until we mature as an introvert.

    The big temptation for immature introverts is to ape the more successful extroverts. This never works for introverts, and we look and sound phoney.

    An introvert has a lot to offer, but needs to mature as an introvert first, to become familiar with our inner life, to be comfortable in our own skin, and then to share our inner life with others. Having the confidence to share our inner life is never boring.

    I feel like I am when I have no 7s or 8s around to feed off of xD I don't like to initiate very much, so.

    I'm totally boring.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
