God yes. The only topics I have any detailed knowledge about are crime books and TV shows like X-Files and Star Trek. I could bore anyone into a coma just talking about the Harry Bosch novels.

I know I'm boring too. But when I'm around other people--people I really don't know--then I fake not being so boring. It's all a masquerade.

I think my life is boring. No partying , barely any company. It's a messed up world. Some people have great lives and others don't, regardless if they try or are good people or not.

Most people are boring. That is one of the main reasons I hardly ever talk to anyone. I'm sure other folk think I'm boring coz I never say much.

I sometimes used to speak in front of quite large audiences. I learnt from body language whether listeners were bored or not. Interested people sit up straight and sometimes incline their heads at an angle to the side. When they're bored, down go the heads and out come the smartphones

Most people are boring.
Definitely. Most of us are very attached to our routines and habits. There's a sort of safety in being boring. It's predictable and stable.

I feel like that too. I don't really have much hobbies/interests. I don't talk much about other things except what interests me. Someone once said I'm monotonous/boring because I'm mostly talk about video games and my stories. Guess they're right, I'm boring person. No wonder people avoid me.

I feel like I'm a boring person because generally the things I'm interested in most people aren't interested in to the extent that I am so talking about them will exhaust others. Then again I'm also a diagnosed autistic, so most where I live don't want to interact with me anyway as they can just tell I'm strange by how I talk. Even the online friends I do have right now I still can't fathom how they don't find me not boring.

This all reminds me of something I read shortly before the crash of 2007.

Politicians got it wrong because they believed the good story tellers - stock market hyper dude traders high on cocaine - instead of the sensible, "boring", experts and analysts who forecast a disaster.

In other words, being boring is not necessarily bad. Being really witty and interesting might be a sign of dishonesty.

I'm not boring. I used to have a full life, lots of friends always out doing things, a lot of travelling but my problems have led me into a very dull life I don't socialise much outside of work.

Sometimes wit can ease a difficult situation and make a group of people bond, but when the witty person seeks adulation from or seeks to profit from being witty, then I think it can be dangerous. Many comedians suffer from depression and mental health problems.
