Time Illusions and Workplace Boredom | The brain and illusions | Scoop.it

Boredom is a risk with any profession, especially those that are repetitive and routine—which can include all jobs, if they are viewed, reviewed and described abstractly enough or in very limited detail, even the job of being a U.S. senator, a jet fighter pilot, mom, astronaut, brain surgeon, novelist, deep-sea diver or a recruiter. I’ve known Cessna pilots who concisely expressed their boredom with flying (“like driving a taxi”)—bored with flying? Tell that to a six-year-old.
