Tedium tolerance /ˈtiːdiəm ˈtɒlərəns/ (n.)

One’s personal capacity to endure drear. Not exactly the inverse of one’s ditch tolerance, but closely correlated. Signalling a strong tedium tolerance in early exchanges is a popular tactic amongst those who view a commercial negotiation as largely a pantomime masking the process of finding out who can bore whom rigid first.
