Alexandra's belief that Scout is dull has nothing to do with how we would define the word today. She sees Scout as dull because she's a tomboy, loves to play, and is more concerned with what's going on outside than directing her focus toward acting like a proper southern girl should. Alexandra thinks Scout should be taking her place among the women in society and enjoying "girlie" things..... Scout doesn't.
