Forget that old adage about curiosity killing the cat. Besides, that cat has nine lives, and you only have one, so it really is in your own best interest to be inquisitive about the world around you, to question, and to seek answers in order to expand your knowledge base, so that you are motivated to keep on learning. In fact, research shows that curiosity is one of eight core abilities that drive successful kids. But what a shame it would be to let that curiosity fade when we become adults, for even as we get older curiosity is a good thing.
Yes, it seems that quite the opposite of killing us, curiosity is linked with psychological, emotional, social, and even health benefits. It seems that we are rewarded for curiosity by dopamine and serotonin (feel-good chemicals in the brain), which are stimulated in the face of something new, triggering an important survival skill. Beyond that, curiosity has been shown to make us happier, to boost achievement levels, to expand our empathy, and to help strengthen relationships.
Of course, how we satisfy that curiosity is a personal undertaking. One could go to the library. One could travel. One could scour the internet. But what if you could do all those things, and more, at least virtually?
