Curiosity

Curiosity makes life interesting. But more than that, curiosity helps us do the right thing and achieve all our goals. When we think that we already know what other people are thinking and feeling, why they do what they do, we isolate ourselves in two ways. First, we don't give people the chance to surprise us and teach us something we need to know. Second, we kill the conversation that we might have had with them. Whether we correctly guess what other people are thinking and feeling or not, it is still better to be curious, to ask, because then we can talk about what they really feel, which might not be what we think, and we have an opportunity to influence or be influenced by them, share information, and create a connection.
