True, sometimes curiosity might lead us to perhaps not the right decisions, however I still think that those decisions based on curiosity will in turn lead us to happiness and is part of our learning cycle in this unique special path we have for ourselves in this life.
So here's a bit of info on the element of curiosity.
Recent research suggests that consistent curiosity goes hand in hand with happiness. In a study, for 21 days participants kept a daily diary in which they responded to several different measures of well-being and, in addition, two curiosity questions:
1) Today, I viewed challenging situations as an opportunity to grow and learn.
2) Everywhere I went today, I was out looking for new things or experiences.
Give a score on anything you encounter today from a scale of 0 (not at all) to 10 (very). Research found that the average rating for these curiosity questions was about 3 but there was a lot of variability, both across days and between people.
It turns out that consistently high ratings on these curiosity questions were correlated with higher ratings of life satisfaction, flourishing relationships, feelings of competence, and physical exercise.
So We Connect Malta go about the day today asking these questions then try kicking off tonight’s dinner conversation with this question: “Did you learn anything new today?” Be ready to go first with something you learned. And make sure everyone takes a turn.
As Albert Einstein once observed: “The important thing is not to stop questioning.”
