Abstract

170 undergraduate students completed the Boredom Proneness Scale by Farmer and Sundberg and the Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist by Zuckerman and Lubin. Significant positive relationships were found between boredom proneness and negative affect scores (i.e., Depression, Hostility, Anxiety). Significant negative correlations were also obtained between boredom proneness and positive affect (i.e., Positive Affect, Sensation Seeking). The correlations between boredom proneness "subscales" and positive and negative affects were congruent with those obtained using total boredom proneness scores. Implications for counseling are discussed.
