Multifactorial: Anemia alone could leave you feeling fatigued and tired and lazy. Of course, if that pattern continues too long you will also become bored. People with borderline personality disorder will often complain of feeling bored and empty. The same holds for some people with attention deficit disorder. Depression can also cause one to feel bored and empty. Physical conditionsuch as hypothyroidism could also make you feel the same way.See your family doctor as well as either a psychologist or a psychiatrist for further input.

"Just" personality?: When you say "just your personality, " it sounds like you think that means there is nothing to understand or change. "personality" is the sum of our choices. You are concerned enough to ask a question here. You would like to understand yourself better and perhaps not have to feel bored and empty. See a good psychologist who can help you understand why you feel as you do--and *who you might become.*.
