- You are personable.
- You explore conversations.

- You open yourself up to new experiences.
- You pursue understanding
- You expand your knowledge.
- You radiate safety and warmth.
- You extend respect easily.
- You appreciate more.
- You welcome camaraderie.

And the cool part is – while gallivanting around in curious engagement – you become contagious. Not a bad return on investment!!
May I suggest that curiosity be viewed as a verb rather than a noun? When curiosity is a thing it loses its power. When curiosity is alive, it is a blazing unstoppable force that opens doors you never thought imaginable.
