Curiosity: Usman Gani

Curiosity is a quality related to inquisitive thinking such as exploration, the investigation, and learning, evident by observation in humans and other animals.  Curiosity is heavily associated with all aspects of human development, in which derives the process of learning and the desire to acquire knowledge and skill.
The term curiosity can also be used to denote the behaviour or emotion of being curious, in regard to the desire to gain knowledge or information. Curiosity as a behaviour and emotion is attributed over millennia as the driving force behind not only human development, but developments in science, language, and industry. Curiosity in kids can be seen as when they get to learn new things they are very excited. The kids when they are given a new topic we can see the emotions and excitement on their face. As per the word curiosity, it can be seen in every age group of people and it’s not only for learning new things but in various ways for example cooking, washing, reading, etc.
Like other desires and need states that take on an appetite quality curiosity is linked with exploratory behaviour and experiences of reward. Curiosity can be described as positive emotions and acquiring knowledge; when one's curiosity has been aroused it is considered inherently rewarding and pleasurable. Discovering new information may also be rewarding because it can help reduce undesirable states of uncertainty rather than stimulating interest.
