"And yes, I do find most people boring in conversations."
Again curious as to why. There are a couple of possibilities
a) you have a high IQ and rapidly tire of vapid comments. You do best in academic settings with other people with multiple degrees.
b) There is a communication style clash. Perhaps you didn't grow up in the states? or you grew up with a different upbringing. I grew up in NZ and when I did my mba in the states i found conversations with the US students a chore. Their objective in the conversation seemed to be to make sage concise comments where each word is measured and parsimoniously dished out as a morsel to be treasured. I personally want to have a good chin wag and would prefer colourful stories with huge embellishments and feel at home conversing in nz. Am just fishing with this reason.
c) You just aren't interested in other people's stories.
