Change through Curiosity in the Insight Approach to Conflict - Revista de Mediación
When the threats we perceive become certainties in our minds, our primary concern israrelynot to discover the adequacy of our thinking but to protect ourselves and what we care about. This leads us to succumb to the bias of egocentrism. When we are egocentric we take ourselves to be the most important point of reference (Keith& Sedikides, 1999; Stein, 1988). In doing this, we discount the significance of others, we stop being curious about them, and we tend to explain behavior we find threatening, not in terms of how it is threatening to us, but in terms of the personal disposition of the person to whom we attribute it (Stagner, 1967, p. 47). This tendency is called attribution bias (Stein, 1988, pp. 249–50).The person becomes the problem –the jerk or the cheat or the monster.

Psychology Researchers Explore How Vaccine Beliefs Are Formed | Voice of America - English
Carli Leon, a mother of two children and previously self-described "loud voice" against vaccinations, said insulting comments online didn't change her mind. "When people would ridicule me and call me a bad mother, it only made me dig my heels in more. What helped me was people asking me questions [that] got me to think. That got me to recognize the hypocrisy of the anti-vaxx community and my own hypocrisy with my own beliefs that I had," Leon said.

Forget Introvert/Extrovert. Are you Perceiving, or Judging?
Don’t confuse “perceiving” with the often positive trait of being “perceptive.” Don’t confuse “judging” with the negative connotations of being “judgmental.” Neither is necessarily good or bad, and we all have a little of both.
An extreme perceiver always wants to take in new information. An extreme judger wants to make a decision.

Becoming a magician – Autotranslucence
The way to extraordinary growth and changes often involves a fundamental ontological or ‘lens’ shift in how you see the world. Magicians are wearing not just better, but fundamentally differently shaped lenses to the rest of us.

Atul Gawande: Curiosity and What Equality Really Means | The New Yorker
And I suddenly remembered a lesson a professor had taught about brain function. When people speak, they aren’t just expressing their ideas; they are, even more, expressing their emotions. And it’s the emotions that they really want heard. So I stopped listening to the man’s words and tried to listen for the emotions. “You seem really angry and like you feel disrespected,” I said.

Productivity Strategies: Exploration vs Exploitation
Exploitation requires our complete concentration to do better what we are doing. It is the origin of efficiency and hence, productivity.

Exploration allows us to get away from our current reality—where we have the focus right now—to visit other realities and find new horizons. It is the origin of innovation.

In more common terms, you are using exploitation when, for example, you go dinner at your favorite restaurant. And when you risk trying a new restaurant, you are exploring.

Exploration versus Exploitation | Social Dynamics
Here, March says we have to constantly be on guard to preserve exploration in our organizations. Our natural tendency, just by doing what’s best for us in the short run, is to gradually scale back exploration in favor exploitation, until all we do is exploit.

On curiosity – Clio et cetera
So I do not spend my time explicitly trying to teach my pupils to be curious: to do so would be to mistake an emergent property for an immanent characteristic.

Tim Harford — Article — The Problem With Facts
Curiosity brought people together in a way that mere facts did not. The researchers muse that curious people have an extra reason to seek out the facts: “To experience the pleasure of contemplating surprising insights into how the world works.”

Speak, Memory by Oliver Sacks | The New York Review of Books
Alexander Graham Bell came to her defense, saying, “Our most original compositions are composed exclusively of expressions derived from others.”3

Indeed, Keller’s remarkable imagination and mind could not have developed and become as rich as they were without appropriating the language of others. Perhaps in a general sense we are all dependent on the thoughts and images of others.

(3) Justine Musk's answer to How can I be as great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Richard Branson? - Quora
Follow your obsessions until a problem starts to emerge, a big meaty challenging problem that impacts as many people as possible, that you feel hellbent to solve or die trying. It might take years to find that problem, because you have to explore different bodies of knowledge, collect the dots and then connect and complete them.

A Billionaire Mathematician’s Life of Ferocious Curiosity -
“I wasn’t the fastest guy in the world,” Dr. Simons said of his youthful math enthusiasms. “I wouldn’t have done well in an Olympiad or a math contest. But I like to ponder. And pondering things, just sort of thinking about it and thinking about it, turns out to be a pretty good approach.”
