Abstract: Boredom can be caused by personality characteristics such as the tendency to become frequently bored. Situational factors such as being in a boring situation can also cause boredom. However, situational and personality factors do not work together in producing boredom. Lastly, some individuals experience boredom more often because of an aspect of their personality, regardless of the environment they are in.
