Ok so a friend of mine asked a typical question which was 'are you doing anything interesting in the holidays?' to which I replied 'no not really, just attending a christening'. She then replied 'that's not true, a christening is interesting!'

So this conversations got me thinking, I'm interested to know what things people find interesting or type of things bore you to death.

For me, I find things like christenings and dinner/house parties quite mundane. I'm more likely to come alive at a gig, trip to new cities/countries, theme park - those kinda of things.

What bout you guys?

*apologies for poor grammar - proof reading is the bane of my life right now :)

Things I find interesting:

- Music, art, photography, politics, sociology, sports, marketing, advertising, consumer behaviour.
- Going to plays and the movie theatre [Plays more than movies], dance clubs, nature walks, sight-seeing, window shopping.
- Introspection about various global issues
- Intimate phone conversations and chats
- Get togethers where I can be intimate with a close friend or colleague
- Sharing of thoughts and ideas about new things I'm learning or interested in
- Posting and socializing on this forum

Things that don't interest me:

- Parties that involve a lot of drinking
- Wedding Receptions [I hate wedding receptions]
- Physics, chemistry, maths, accounting [boring]
- Country music and most of modern "pop".
- Concerts and huge crowds
- Mainstream Popular Culture. [at the moment I'm debating whether I want to get caught up in the Hunger Games fever or not just 'cuz everyone else is].
- Going to tourist attractions that everyone else is going to. Basically, I don't like jumping on a bandwagon. I don't like most things mainstream. I'm into finding alternates and substitutes so that I have a "different" story to tell - so that I can stand out. Example. In Pakistan, it's usually taken for granted that honeymooners will go to places like Thailand, Malaysia and Dubai --- I went to Sri Lanka and made sure I visited the Tsunami hit areas.

How can I put it... EVERYTHING can be interesting, it depends on the way you look at it.

I find going to book stores awfully boring... but then I decided to just start looking around with a different eye - find things to tell other people about.

"$200 for a "Dark Side Of The Moon" collector's edition? Who buys that stuff?" Is an example.

A christening... you might get to talk to some people... you'll get to go see something that is not really THAT common. You learn something new everyday - and THAT, in my opinion, is interesting.

Just go with an open eye and a GOOD MOOD. NOTHING is interesting when you're in a bad mood, whilst everything can be interesting if you are in a good one ;)

Based on that theory, I would agree with you. However I taking into account previous experiences and my knowledge of the type of people attending, I'm more or less certain I will be bored. (However I have my own little way of entertaining myself at these type of events :proud:)

I would LOVE to agree with you but I'm sorry NOTHING will make the below interesting to me...

- Physics, chemistry, maths, accounting

I agree with Jaws here. These subjects are just not my cup of tea.

At the end of the day it's about personal interests. It's often when I'm in a good mood the things I have mentioned but me in a bad mood.

Hi,

I feel I can find some level of interest in most things. I can find pretty much anything interesting with the right people. So i guess in answer to your question: I find people interesting.
Things I dont find interesting are: going out drinking (probably as I don t like the people!)

In comparision to the maths solving, I like solving maths because although I cant solve life I know I can solve the maths !

:)
