deeper curiosity

Curiosity is an admittance that we don’t know things.

We don’t like admitting our ignorance but we’re good company.  Albert Einstein confessed:

“I have no special talents.  I am only passionately curious.”*

Bernadette Jiwa, who is quoting Einstein goes on to identify three kinds of curiosity: diversive, empathetic, and epistemic.**

These are deepening curiosities and all can be developed.

Be curious about more.

Be curious about how others see things.

Be curious about what that might look like if you do something with it.

(*Albert Einstein, quoted in Bernadette Jiwa’s Hunch.)
(**These captured my curiosity because of how they mirror Theory U.)
