|GHOST: "I AM WASHING MY HAIR"|
Results showed one in seven people feel they’ve become so boring that they don’t have any interesting personal stories to share with others whatsoever. Can you imagine the conversation:
PERSON: So, you're a paranormal investigator, any ghost stories to tell us?
PARA PERSON: Yes I am, and got no ghost stories, although, I can tell you about creaking floorboards, banging pipes and the time one of my team smiled and I told him off, none of that here, thank you very much
PERSON: Love to stop and chat, but my hair needs washing.. BYE!!
PARA PERSON: OK, but I didn't get chance to tell you about the time we all moaned about this ghost picture someone posted, but no one smiled though, we don't smile whilst we are investigating, we take it very serious.
The research also measured the topics of conversation that bore people most quickly. It found paranormal politics the leading subject for people switching off, followed by talk of experts and infighting within teams, calling them out on Facebook, threatening this and that, then doing bugger all about it.
The results show a widespread, fundamental desire to break out of our daily routines and have real-life adventures. The big question is how to make that happen—how to be ready for exciting opportunities when they come your way. The best solution is to make adventure and exploration more convenient, so you naturally go out and do more exciting things.
Boredom can seep in to our personal lives and the boredom mounts up: respondents typically endure three hours and 15 minutes of pure boredom a day, which equates to 22 hours and 45 minutes of monotony every week.
|CANT SMILE, MUSTN'T SMILE|
On average, that week is likely to include three boring conversations with someone where they desperately look for a way to escape, steer the conversation to a new topic, or just zone out and nod in agreement at whatever the other person is saying.
The good news is that people intuitively know what they need in their lives. “It’s about spontaneity—about putting your smartphone aside for a bit and immersing yourself in life, 68 percent of respondents wish they could get out and explore new places, more than half simply wish they were more active, and 48 percent feel more time outdoors would make a real difference.
How would it make a difference? People believe the added spontaneity would allow them more fun (72%), make them more interesting to others (43%), and add more confidence (42%). One in ten even thinks being spontaneous would make them more attractive.
In other words, setting aside your technology and immersing yourself in real life outdoor adventures might make you resemble the dashing and desirable person on your Facebook page. At least you’d have something new to post on Instagram!
