Curiosity is a natural phenomenon that helps people move into new experiences, tapping their inherent powers of wonder and inquisitiveness. Curiosity is an ideal positive state of openness and engagement, no matter what our culture or background is.
Curiosity can help us heal our anxiety if utilized in a particular manner.
Deprivation Curiosity is when we have a gap in a certain type of information that makes us restless, and in an urgent need for the same. It is focused on the destination.
Example: We see an actor and cannot remember his name, and feel restless and anxious as the name is on the tip of our tongue. Later when we google and find the answer, we feel relieved, as we are no longer deprived of that information.
Interest Curiosity is when we are having a pleasurable interest in knowledge. It is focused on the journey or the path.
Example: Diving into the internet for enjoyment and learning a lot of new stuff, feeling satisfied and content.
