    If only boring people get bored, doesn't that make boredom an infectious disease of the personality?

    That is an interesting question. Do people really need to get bored? I guess I have not heard too many adults say that they are bored. I have heard more kids say that they are bored. That just means that they want to do something else. So, do you get bored?

      Well it's clear that in the rat race of our society, not too many ppl have time to run out of things to do. Boredom is a perceived monotony of the events and happenings of one's life. To answer your question, I absolutely get bored.

    I think it's a 'condition' of the mind in which perceived redundancy is met with apathy and at least mild distain. Anyone who thinks they never get bored is either the brightest or dullest 'pencil in the box'. To be ceaseless amused and engaged; I can't decide if that would be nirvana or the other place.
