They say curiosity killed the cat, we think otherwise and say a curious cat is the mother of all inventions. How often do you find yourself intrigued by almost anything? Or better even, how often do you have sleepless nights because you ought to read Google results up to page 4 about something that caught your eye?
If you’re nodding in agreement, then high five because we think being curious is the way to be! In case you’re on the other side of the table; read our list of 10 signs you’re a curious cult, who knows we probably belong to the same clan?
1. Trends=Best friends
Whether it’s an excerpt from Donald Trump v/s Hillary Clinton‘s election saga or the Game of Thrones‘, season 7-epsiode 1 (Calm down, it’s not out) on the trends chart, you ought to know what people are talking and you ought to know it all. Perhaps, politics or TV may not be your genre of interest, but if there’s something that interests you and people are talking about it; there’s no way you wouldn’t know!
2. Search History=Bizarre
Reading about a porn artist’s failed career and then jumping to 9 reasons why doctors are awesome could mean bizarre search history to another person, for the curious cult in you and me; it’s absolutely normal. It’s about enlightening our minds. (No matter how weird our curiosity could get!)
3. Facebook Interests= Enormous
Every time you stumble on an interesting meme/video/ status, you not only end up spending time reading/watching it; you like the page it sources from and devote the hour to the page without even realising. As a result of liking these pages; your interests’ section on Facebook is enormous.
4. Conversations= Too many/ Small Talks= None
Our curiosity is never limited to just questions that only the mighty internet can answer (Although that’s a lot, already) every time we meet a new human; we have our set of questions. Are we all chatterboxes? Not essentially. But the bottom line is, our biggest takeaway is that we never have small talks but hold real-time conversations because there’s always something to talk or learn about someone else.
5. Wanderlust Level=Dope
You’re not a curious cult until your wanderlust is at level dope! The desire to explore/ travel to every nook and cranny of the world to understand, learn and grow more is the face of curiosity in today’s time.
6. Backstory=Your favourite story
Every time you’re at the movies or the watching a TV show; it is after movie/show background story that wins your interest. There hasn’t been an instance when you’ve missed ‘Googling’ a movie/play/book’s background/ making or reading up its trivia section on IMBD.
7. Screenshots folder= Full
Your screenshots folder is full by now because it was either an interesting quote, a fun fact, an amusing event you read about that you were ‘compelled’ to take a screenshot and revisit it to read more about it or simply nod in agreement with it.
8. Time spent on the internet= Unlimited
Given your love for knowing it all and reading Google results up to page.4 or simply browsing till the very end of your Twitter timeline or Facebook feed; the time you spend on the internet is obviously beyond count or logic by now.
9. Procrastination Game= Strong
This is pretty much the result of spending too much time on the internet; you’re always too busy browsing the internet that other tasks take a back seat. The other tasks could be taking a shower. (I hope I’m not the only one :P)
10. Commitment Act= Serious
We don’t mean to go all cupid, we mean as curious souls; we read the letter till the end, explore subjects at full length, watch videos till the last second and in this case, read posts till this point.
P.S: If you confirm to more than 5 signs, bravo because you’re a curious cult who believes in keeping up with contemporary curiosity and being the curious kind is the best kind 🙂
