The researchers were curious about the science of boredom. They studied the qualities that make a person perceived as “boring.” After gathering data from 500 people, they created a profile.
The results of the study showed that the “world’s most boring person is a data entry worker who is religious, lives in a town, and has watching TV as their favourite hobby.”
According to the results of the study, people working in the field of performing arts and science were perceived to be the most interesting whereas jobs like data analysis, banking, accounting, cleaning, or working in insurance or tax topped the list of boring jobs.
