Curiosity Is as important as Intelligence
Curiosity — a state of active interest or genuinely wanting to know more about something — creates an openness to unfamiliar experiences, laying the groundwork for greater opportunities to experience discovery, joy and delight.
5 BENEFITS OF AN INQUIRING MIND:
1. Health. There are promising signs that enhancing curiosity reduces the risk for these diseases and may even reverse some of the natural degeneration that occurs in older adults.
2. Intelligence. Studies have shown that high levels of curiosity in adults are connected to greater analytic ability, problem-solving skills and overall intelligence. All of which suggests that cultivating more curiosity in your daily life is likely to make you smarter.
3. Social Relationships. Curious people are inclined to act in ways that allow relationships to develop more easily.
4. Happiness. Developing good relationships with other people (see above) and growing as a person are foundational components of a “happy” life. Both factors are supported by curiosity.
5. Meaning. Curiosity is the entry point to many of life’s greatest sources of meaning and satisfaction: our interests, hobbies and passions.
