Stephen: Study determines profile for world’s most boring person

A scientific study has come up with traits that would make one the most boring person in the world. University of Essex researchers looked at more than 500 people across five experiments and found the blandest jobs are seen as data analysis, accounting, cleaning, and banking. They also found the dullest hobbies were: religion, watching TV, bird watching, and smoking. Boring people were also perceived as shunning large settlements to live in small cities and towns, and that boring people are generally disliked and avoided due to preconceptions, and that those being perceived as boring likely conveys low competence and low interpersonal warmth. Still, study leader Dr. Wijnand Van Tillburg  says, “The truth of the matter is people like bankers and accountants are highly capable and have power in society—perhaps we should try not to upset them and stereotype them as boring!”
