Budgeting and Being Boring

A friend of mine brought it to my attention recently that there is strong correlation between budgeting and living a boring, sequestered life devoid of entertainment and excitement. This observation does seem rather well founded. So then the question is: which direction does the causality run? Are we budgeters boring because we budget? Or do we have some other personality trait that causes us to be boring and also to budget? Hard to tell, which is unfortunate because the answer would probably shed some light on whether it is possible for someone to be a budgeter while not having a boring life and it would certainly lend some insight into how one approaches achieving such a state of being.
