Streaks of thought: Streak 11
Some jobs are boring because they are not creative and are repetitive. Well, every job is repetitive. Boredom of a job is proportional to the degrees of freedom given to take responsibilities. If we have more number of degrees and more freedom the space of possible ways of handling responsibilities just becomes larger so that we can "forget" the repetitions because of limited memory or knowledge. That's why having proportionally limited knowledge can reduce boredom!
