Boredom Proness Scale

Are you easily bored? This is the boredom proness scale (BPS), developed by university researchers in the 1980s. It will measure how prone you are to boredom.

Bored already? Are we keeping you awake? I hope the quiz itself isn't too boring. It's only 28 questions, so hang in there. When its over you can go out and play.
