    Do you get bored easily? Are you impulsive?

    Now that I realize I am non-social extrovert, I need to know if introverts get bored of being by themselves? Imagine you don't have a laptop or a book or anything, would you get bored?

    Also, are you impulsive? Do any of you have anger issues?

    //a lot of introspection today.

    Without a laptop or book or anything...I think I would start experimenting or exercising with my body, see what I can do. Or I could just zone out and contemplate or meditate-ish, or I could go for a walk and contemplate and discover new places and such. I could visualise stuff or compose music pieces inside my head, examine my surroundings..I think I wouldn't get bored that easily.

    With regards to most of that of which I wrote above, I would say I am impulsive. Trying things out and perceiving and all.

    I somewhat have angre issues, I'd rather say agitation issues, they mostly uprise with my mother being involved, but I am more and more getting things under control.

    I get bored easily when I'm in school...other than that, I can pretty much never be bored. I could entertain myself with my thoughts allll daaayyy. After a few days of that I would feel the need to return to civilization though.
    As for being impulsive...never. I think everything through 6363849 times before I decide to do it.

    Yeah im like that, pretty impulsive i cant be without getting info and i get bored a lot... also i like to be with people because they have free info and i like it but often if the info its uniteresting i get out of there... pretty impulsive even for talking, and anxious when im bored... strange life thought if i think less i get sick, im a daydreaming junkie i cant live in the moment if there is no people around me, its like procrastination with the procrastination cant focus in only one thing its pretty boring... until a fun thing comes and i give all my attention to it.

    I get bored really easily. Easily amused, easily bored. It's a very irritating trait. I wish I had more longevity with things.

    I'm not all that impulsive unless I can think of literally no negative consequences. I think I come across as more impulsive than I am. Like I bought a guitar. Just because. And I'm relatively sporadic with where I go when I'm out. My INFP friend and I have a habit of getting on a train to go 40 miles so that we can buy milkshakes. In our defence, they do any flavour and they're so good.

    I wouldn't say that I have anger issues. I'm pretty adept at biting my tongue. I do tend to snap though. It builds up and then I will scream for a bit, apologise for overreacting and say nothing more about it. I'm also very "out of sight, out of mind" as a person, so if I move away from who/what was annoying me, I tend to forget about it. Very inconvenient when I'm trying to be mad at someone.

    I tend to get bored easily. If I have even a few minutes of down time, I tend to pull out my android and start looking at wikipedia pages or something.

    I'm also impulsive. It's been a problem in my life. Mostly this has to do with buying things or sticking my foot in my mouth. As for anger, no, not at all.

    I'm pretty sure you could lock me in a blank white room and it would still take me a couple days to get bored. I've spent whole afternoons on my couch just watching the clouds go by.

    I'm not really impulsive at all. Every once and a while, sure, but almost everything I do has been thought out.

    No anger issues at all. In fact it's really difficult to get me angry. I can recall shouting in anger once in the last 10 years. I'm most likely to go very cold and quiet when angry.

    At some point, when a laptop was out of reach, being alone, and having nothing better to do, I started focusing on items, to exercise my telekinetic ability... Wish that would have worked though.

    Yes,it seems that i could be easily bored at anything i do because at some point i feel like drowning at some specific thing make my perspective too narrow

    I'm always thinking of what else i could be doing which makes me get bored with just doing one thing. But i sort of hop between things quite impulsively as a cure for this boredom, so i guess it balances out. If i have to focus on something, though, e.g. studies, and can't just follow my impulses, i not only get bored, but also go a tiny bit insane. I think all this leads to me being somewhat flaky and unreliable (hippy translation; i'm a 'free spirit').
