    Precis

    Kindly check my precis.



    original passage


    Boredom as a factor in human behaviour has recieved far less attention than it deserves.
    it has been one of great motives powers throughout the historical epoch, and is so at the present day more than ever. Boredom would seem to be a distinctively human emotion. Animals in captivity, it is true, become uneasy,pace up and down, and yawn, but in a state of nature, probably, they hardly experience anything like boredom. One of boredom essentials consist in the contrast between present circumstances and some other more agreeable circumstances which force themselves irresistibly upon the imagination.it is one of essentials of boredom that one's faculties must not fully occupied. Running away from enemies who is trying to make one's life may be unpleasant.it is certainly not boring. Boredom is certainly a frustrated desire for events, not necessarily pleasant ones. but just occurrence such as will enable the victim of boredom to know one day from another. the opposite of boredom, in a word, is not pleasant but excitement.



    Precis


    Boredom has been one of powerful apparatus of human behaviour. it is human psychology to get bore. contrary to this, animals do not feel such unhappiness. Human mind which does not occupied with thoughts often less excited. Human beings want to get thrill and excitement either it may be pleasant or harmful. man's motive is excitement in life to get rid of boredom not pleasure.

    Well, the first sentence is OK, but the rest is a mess. The summary is no better.

    Re: Precis

    Say:

    Running away from an enemy that is trying to kill you may be unpleasant, but it is definitely not boring.

    Re: Precis

    Fourth sentence. Perhaps:

    Animals in captivity, it is true, pace back and forth, and yawn, but it is unlikely that in the wild they ever experience anything like boredom.

    Try:

    Boredom results from a lack of stimulation. Mammals need stimulation.
