How often can you change jobs without it becoming a liability?

I have moved around quite a bit over the past 10 years; I've lived in 3 different cities in 2 countries, and during this period have been self-employed as well as working for 4 different companies. The truth is, I tend to get bored of a job after about a year, and start getting antsy for something new. However, I'm not fresh out of college any more, so it's becoming more and more difficult to think of compelling reasons for this tendency, and frankly, I don't think telling companies that I want something new after a year or so is going to bring in a flood of job offers. I do part on good terms, for the most part, and I am not getting fired. How negatively does multiple positions on a resume impact what you think of a candidate?
