Question Title

* 1. Here are some boring statistics.
'Boredom' is now accepted as a cause of stress.
Stress cost the British economy 9.9 million days of productivity last year.
British employers paid out 321 million pounds in compensation to stressed staff.
'Boredom' isn't something we can claim is boring anymore.

But what is it that makes a job boring?-  I'd be bored witless as an accountant yet my sister-in-law loves it, is good at it and earns a better living in it.

Below are six factors that contribute to a task or job becoming boring to a person.
Please rank them 1 to 6 where:
1 is the most yawn inducing
6 is the least likely to cause you to quit

Thanks for taking the time to complete this- as far as I can tell this is the first ever survey into what makes a job boring so you are a pioneer!

Repetition- doing the same thing for hours on end, day after day.
An inappropriate challenge- doing things that are, and always have been, well below your ability.
An outdated challenge- still doing something that you mastered years ago.
'Makework'- doing something that appears to have no purpose other than to give you something to do.
Thankless tasks- doing something that no one appreciates or notices.
Automation not autonomy- doing something the way you are told to do it and not being able to do it the way you know it could be done better.
