Curiosity has several kinds or flavors, and they are not driven by the same things. There is something that has been dubbed perceptual curiosity and epistemic curiosity.
Curiosity is a fundamental human trait. Everyone is curious, but the object and degree of that curiosity is different depending on the person and the situation.
That’s the curiosity we feel when something surprises us or when something doesn’t quite agree with what we know or think we know.
There are two things to remember:
There are some people who have the feeling that because we have information literally at our fingertips, maybe we’re becoming less curious. But that’s not true.
Kids are more curious in terms of diversity than perceptual curiosity.
But in terms of epistemic curiosity, adults are as curious.
Different people are curious about different things, and the level of intensity of their curiosity may be different.
