There are two ways that leads us to curiosity, it could be for good or bad. It could also benefit us in life, as it can also destroy and ruin it. I believe my curiosity lead me to great things, my life have been a series of Up's and Down's. I learned alot from it, I became a better person as I grew up. There are mistakes from the past, that I didn't treat as bad but looked at it as major turning point to improve my way of thinking and living. It really helped me to understand more about people and their behavior, of the way they think and how they also view life. Like what I also see in life, if we are blind to see the wrong things that we do then we are bound to commit the same mistakes repeatitively. So as far as for my curiosity is concerned, I guess mylot has also provided me some answers on some of them!;) So how about you guys, can you share your experience? Have a great day to all, goodluck and enjoy posting!;)

Hi Raijin, well, curiosity kills the cat they say, and it might be so, but I haven't yet experienced any bad things because of being curious. Or maybe I am not that curious after all, who knows. Usually my curiosity has made me researching certain topics such as nanotechnology, and I do not consider myself as knowledgeable as someone with a degree, however, I do know enough now to feel confident in this regard. The same goes for psychology, and human behavior. And of course Mylot is a great place to do some personal researches like the two that I just quoted. TheFortunes

I'm not also that kind of a genius, a degree-holder of some sort nor consider myself knowledgeable at things. But I consider everything I made are out of curiosity, I believe that is where we'll get to learn the right from wrong. It's the first step to distinguish good from bad, then decide on what we feel can be more useful to us and the benefits it brings. I'm also curious of nanotech, but I'm not that yet familiar with it because I haven't spend time in doing some reaserchings on how scientists studies them. I find your choice of curiosity very interesting yet intriguing, I hope that I'd get to find some time in looking at that interest of your's!;)

Hi again Raijin, thanks for your answer. You could check this site of mine: www.ecophagy.com as there is plenty of great info, and resources, and sites dealing in nanotech. A hilarious thing happened last week, and I'll tell you about it, LOL. I received an email from a student, and I haven't replied to him as of yet. I think it really is rediculous to and ask ME all these questions for his research, that I know of, or he thinks that I do due to the articles that I have written in regards - instead of for him to go and do his own research... What do you say? Isn't it too much really, that a student comes to you, or me, and asks specific questions about their speciallity in the University of their choice? And here is the email that I am telling you about. I'll only cover his and my name. Dear T..... V....... Hi I am G..... U... and I am a student at ITT Technical Institute in Portland, Oregon, I am doing a research paper on nanotechnology in medicine and I was wondering if you would mind taking a moment and answering some questions. I thank you for your time it is greatly appreciated. 1.What are all of the possible advances of nanotechnology in medicine? 2.What are the risks of nanotechnology in medicine? 3.What type of side effects could there be from nanotechnology in medicine? 4.What type of things could nanotechnology do to the human body? 5.Why should nanotechnology be able to continue on with research? 6.Why should nanotechnology not be able to continue on with research? 7.How could nanotechnology be regulated? Thank you again for your time. G..... U... LOL, and I'll appreciate your opinion about my reaction here TheFortunes

Curiosity is mother of invention. The more curious a person is about something, the more are the chances of getting it. I am not that curious sorts but yes sometimes I do a lot of research on how to earn money online. It has not given me any fruitful results but still I am after it.

That's fair enough, we all know that it is hard to earn money online and that only a few takes the risk in doing it so.

My curiosity lead me into trouble. When opportunities presented themselves in my youth my father proved to be an obstacle. My lack of confidence and self esteem resulted in a lot of violence and pain and loss of strength and spirit. Where others have chosen to fight these obstacles I was beaten down, literally. Life is a constant battle of accepting who and what I am, opposed to striving with no help, alone, to be better. I am constantly lost, looking for direction and purpose and endeavouring to uncover my spirit and strength so I can find some prurpose to my life.

It is not too late my friend, I know that you've somehow made the best out of your life. Just look at yourself now, of where you are. As long as there is life, there is hope.. I also think of things as these (troubles) that I have hard times n dealing with, but I know that I am still in control of it since it does not affect me in such ways. Just look at the bright spot, I know that you notice it yourself!;)

Curiosity killed the cat don't ya know! LOL I believe my curiosity led me in both directions and with good reason. It led me into a bad direction so that I could learn from it and share what I learned with others, especially my children. It gave me the knowledge that I would need to survive. It also gave me the strength I would need. It showed me that I would learn from my mistakes so that I could make better decisions in the future. It also made me realize that some things are better left unknown. My curiosity led me in a good direction to find what I had yet to learn. It showed me the better things in life. It showed me that I could be content and that I didn't have to be lonely. It helped me to build my family and make my personal mark in the world. I may not be well known, but those who know me know me well.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience Catzmeow, I believe we have the same thoughts about this!;) That's what I also would want to share to the world, my own way of discovering things like in life and other people's behavior. Though it was said that curiosity killed the cat, I hope that it didn't killed us!;)

I've already than that in my teenage years even in just a little danger I took the risk just to know what will happened. But now I already learned lessons from my previous experienced that I must be curious about in a good things and learned mistakes from others bad happenings when they share their past experienced.

Sometimes we can never be sure if such things are meant for bad or good, I believe that it is still curiosity that makes us eager to try such things. But of course, these things did helped us to be more aware of what and where we want to be in the future.
