I have always been a very curious person. Whenever I though about something I don’t know or understand, I ask others or look around in an attempt to find the answer. Every child is curious, but my curiosity was refined. It was refined to logic and reason. Why does the sun set every night? Why do I stay on the floor or ground and not float away? Why am I where I am right now? Why… My mind was, and still is, full of questions. As soon as I had an unanswered question, I needed to find the solution. Things gradually became more complex as I grew older. Along with this increased complexity came more interesting problems that required more thought to be understood.
When all the simpler questions had been answered, I needed to think bigger and longer …show more content…
In middle school I volunteered to help out backstage for the play that was being performed in the fall. I had no idea at the time how much I would love the knowledge and skill set that came with the world of technical theater. It didn’t all happen at once, because the theater program at The Fessenden School wasn’t the greatest, but it was enough for me to know how much I enjoyed it. The step by step of each sequential scene was crystal clear to me. The following year, I was promoted to the role of stage manager to replace the student who had previously held the role. I stepped up and got to work. At the end of that year, the head of the theater department told me that he thought I was much better than the previous stage manager due to my constant check-ins about scene changes and prop locations when I asked about how well I did in comparison. "As well? No, much better in fact!" I have never forgotten his …show more content…
Curiosity has shaped who I am as a person by providing first hand experience in a wide range of subjects and activities. This is why I greatly appreciate the concept and usage of the phenomenon of 'curiosity', both as a child and throughout the entirety of one’s life. It has shown me what I love, what I don’t really enjoy that much, and everything in between. I have been able to focus in on the topics I enjoy and improve my aptitude for them in the

1. Tell us about a concept, theory, or topic you have explored simply because it sparked your intellectual curiosity. Why do you find it intriguing? How do you want to further explore it?
Curiosity has always driven me towards new experiences. When I was six-years-old, I was hit by a car crossing the street, to catch a beetle I wanted to investigate. I spent three weeks in the hospital in traction to hold my femur in place as it started to mend.
I needed to know how the brain could be capable of driving a person to the point of self-mutilation. Now, this curiosity for psychology has manifested itself into a never-ending search for more knowledge in all aspects of life. I ask questions that do not yet have answers because I hunger to answer them myself. The human brain is one of the least understood parts of the body, leaving so much for me to find out. There is something so invigorating about the brain trying to understand itself, a paradox that energizes me for the future in ways nothing else

“Are these leaves beautiful because beauty is a part of their essence or because I perceive them beautiful?” I asked one evening as dry, colorful leaves crunched under my feet. Although it was the first question of its kind, it gave life to a thunder in my mind, the science of questions,
I just stood there, looking past him at the stage. I thought that if I wasn’t good enough for this that I wouldn’t be good enough for anything. I turned my back on him to head back to my seat and before I could even take that first step, I heard him add, “But it doesn’t mean you won’t be.” I stopped dead in my tracks and heard him walk away. I stood in that spot like statue for a good amount of time and thought. His words completely changed my view on just about everything. He taught me not to assume so much and to be confident but not cocky. He helped me become more humble and thinking on what he said now, he helped me find my passion. I still wanted to be in the production so I joined light crew and loved it. Now, I want to go into theater and become a technical

Curiosity is often defined as a strong desire to know or learn something. Being filled to the brim with curiosity is one of the most amazing feelings. Finding something you are interested in and wanting to know every single thing there is to know about it. Being inquisitive is such a powerful thing, always wanting to see more, to hear more, to do more, to be more. It makes people who they are, if someone is not very curious, they might be very dull because they know what they know and they are content with that. It is the naturally curious people that get more out of life, because they are always searching for something more, something bigger and brighter, and often they find it. But, in certain situations, being overly
Since early childhood, I have always been an inquirer. Asking my parents questions they could not answer became expected of me. “Why is the sky blue?” “How is milk made?” Because they did not know the answer, my natural curiosity steered me to researching them for myself. I remember being awake during the late night, anticipating the theme song of my favorite show How It’s Made on the Discovery Channel. In these moments, I felt as if I was entering another world; a world where time did not exist, things made sense, and my curiosity was fulfilled.
Curiosity is a powerful attribute; it is comparable to a broken compass alternately pointing north, a broken compass guides you in a different direction. Usually a regular working compass tells you go North to find home, or your location. But this powerful compass points the opposite. Usually pointing towards light, acknowledgement, something contemporary. Societal norms, repress the average citizen to acknowledge their surrounding, that’s how they remain a society. “Curiosity killed the cat.” Your mother tells you. It is how she was conditioned to think; only naturally she passes it on to her young, who are at the peak of curiosity.
I ask a lot of questions; I’m a curious person. I once asked my mom why people die, why there are bad things in the world if God is so good and all-powerful. Her response was that we just couldn’t really understand why God does anything because we can’t comprehend God’s “master plan.” I’m sure that she was right, but that response is not very satisfying to a curious little boy. I saw an inconsistency in my understanding of reality, and I wanted to get things straight.
I am an incredibly curious person. However when I encounter something that I find interesting, I tend to observe things about it first and ask questions later. I really like getting involved in things that make me curious. For example, I'm just as curious about deviant or abnormal psychology as I am passionate about helping people be healthier individuals.
Every one of us thrives on a common thing – Curiosity. Even when we were little kids, the curiosity as to what’s happening around us helped us to grow our minds. The curiosity leads to exploration and the exploration within and without, leads us to our passion, which in turn sets us on a mission to perceive it.
Did curiosity kill the cat? Curiosity, like many words, can be apprehended in either a positive or a negative way based on perspective. In the perspective of an eight-year old acquiescent and jaunty child like I was, just about anything and everything seemed like an opportunity to question how and why things happened. Looking back, it is funny how simple questions helped mold my sixteen-year-old self today.
