Seeks to explore new ideas, places, and experiences to expand their knowledge.
High scorers are interested in exploring new ideas, activities, and experiences, purely for the sake of discovery. They have an intrinsic desire for new experiences and information about the world.
Curiosity can manifest as meeting and learning about new people, going to new places, or researching a new topic on the internet.
Curiosity is closely related to its sister Strength, (Love of Learning)[/element/via-love-of-learning]. While curiosity is the motivating force to seek out new information and experience, Love of Learning is the motivating force to deepen knowledge on a topic.
In this way, Curiosity relates more to novelty-seeking and breadth (shallow and wide), and Love of Learning relates to contemplation and integration (deep and narrow).
