Step 1: Check out their eyes
Check out the other person’s eyes. Are they darting around the room, as if looking for an escape? Or, worse, are they completely unfocused, as if they've lapsed into a coma?
Check out their feet, too; if they’re pointed away from you, they’re poised to run.
Step 2: Be aware of their responses
Be aware of their responses. If your discourse isn’t eliciting anything more than polite nods, the occasional "really?" or a monotone "wow," it’s time to change the topic -- or let the other person speak.
Step 3: Watch for topic switches
Watch out for sudden topic switches. If you're waxing poetic about one topic, and your listener suddenly introduces a whole new one, consider that a clear sign you're boring.
Avoid talking about your dreams. An informal study showed that most people find other people's nocturnal fantasies a major snooze.
Step 4: Question a lack of questions
Don't assume that someone who isn't interrupting you or asking questions is spellbound. More likely, they've mentally checked out of the conversation.
Step 5: Look into your heart
If someone is boring you, look into your heart. Boredom is often a two-way street.
Did You Know?
A 2009 study concluded that people who report that their lives are boring are more likely to die younger than those who find their lives interesting.
