    Are you hyperactive because you are afraid of boredom?

    For many people, avoiding boredom is the driving force behind all they do. In fact, often they device ways to keep constantly busy so that the monster called boredom stays away. Are you among them.

    Most definitely! I don't consider myself hyper but I always have to be doing something.

    The difference between actually being hyperactive and the fear of boredom is that when you are truly hyperactive you never actually get bored. You just kind of bounce around until something interests you enough to focus on it...Its kind of fun.

    I'm not one of those people.

    I don't get bored doing nothing, because if I have the time to do nothing I always have the time to do something that I don't find boring. 

    What I find boring is doing boring things and having little time to either do nothing or do something that isn't boring.
