Title: Boredom and Gambling: How are They Related?
Author: Mercer, Kimberley B
Identifier: 00348
Abstract: A form of boredom proneness that is related to a need for excitement predicts non-chronic, less severe gambling problems. This form of boredom proneness predicted gambling problems even after considering the impact of broader personality characteristics on gambling. There are two distinct types of boredom proneness that should not be measured interchangeably because they predict different behavioural outcomes.
