first off, let me begin by saying that i may not be an INXP- it's very possible that i'm an EXTP that's under stress. but in the case that i am not...
i know it sounds absolutely terrible, but i find that i get bored of friends in the following situations:
1) i find that the other party has become far too dependent on me.
2) i find that the other person has nothing to teach me and the conversation is one-sided (with me usually teaching them/advising them).
3) i find that they've "stolen" my personality and is mimicking me in behavior and humor
basically, i hate imbalance and it irritates me to no end when i find that a friendship has become this way. it is enough for me to end the friendship. i wish i didnt feel like this, but i find that by staying in the friendship, the other person can easily sense that i'm forcing myself to hang out with them (i hear that i'm easy to read) and becomes irritated. then i get even more irritated when i sense their irritation in response to my irritation. i dont want to ignore them because that seems cowardly but at the same time when i tell them what i think about them, they get really pissed and that causes trouble for me later on. i've tried distancing myself before but as it is, it seems that the people who embody the situations above are really sensitive and can immediately tell what i'm doing.
...so yeah. does this happen to you guys as well? and if so, how do you deal with it?
