> I don't think sleeping because of boredom is a 5 trait. Indeed, 5s rarely get bored if ever. There is always something to observe and analyze, like experimenting with basketball trajectories (optimum angle of entry into the rim etc) while playing ball, benchmarking PCs at slight increments of FSB increase, observing the effects of chilled 7-ups at various degrees of coldness, trying out new resistors and caps for his amplifier, tweaking the speaker crossovers, ... going out with friends not to enjoy but to observe and analyze other human's behavior, etc.

I am 5w4, INTJ. Boredom is the bane of my existence, and I experience it constantly. I can get really immersed in a project, but usually it seems I need other people around to assauge the boredom. But then, depending upon the people and the activities, I can easily get bored if it's not a pursuit I particularly enjoy.
