Boredom is more than that feeling of dissatisfaction we feel from time to time.
Researchers have recently identified five specific types of boredom.
- Indifferent (withdrawn, relaxed)
- Calibrating (receptive to change)
- Searching (restless)
- Reactant (motivated to leave)
- Apathetic (low arousal/high aversion)
