What’s So Great About Curiosity?

Curiosity comes in many different forms and shapes, but pretty much all curiosity rests on a simple foundation, that foundation is the question.

Upon meeting someone we know even casually we usually ask a question that might include one of the following. How are you, What are you doing, What have you been doing, How’s things, What ya know, What’s new, Got any news, or maybe What’s happening. we want the other person to share part of their life as a way of starting a conversation, as a way of opening a door to deeper knowledge and intimacy. Of course we can argue that most of these opening questions are just ice breakers and that we really don’t expect an answer. I’d be curious to know if that’s true, for me when I offer a greeting I want to know more.
