Which Boredom Are You Feeling?


Boredom is more than that feeling of dissatisfaction we feel from time to time.

Researchers have recently identified five specific types of boredom.

  1. Indifferent  (withdrawn, relaxed)
  2. Calibrating  (receptive to change)
  3. Searching  (restless)
  4. Reactant  (motivated to leave)
  5. Apathetic  (low arousal/high aversion)

If you’re wondering what type of boredom you experience, FastCompany.com has an interesting post about boredom here:
