Rage Spread Thin
Boredom most likely manifests in two forms: apathetic boredom and agitated boredom.
People who are afflicted with agitated boredom tend to rely heavily on external stimulation. They expect the world to deliver fulfilling experiences rather than attempting to amuse themselves.
Those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries often report high levels of boredom. Recent research on brain trauma suggests that a particular brain region, the orbitofrontal cortex, may play a central role in the experience of boredom.
