More Curious, Less Furious

Organizer: Living Room Conversations

Much of current media and culture tout the idea that we should view those who disagree with us as enemies. How can we solve the major problems of our day by only engaging with those who think like us? Research is showing that CURIOSITY which seeks diverse perspectives can open the mind, develop empathy, allay fears and encourage self-awareness and humility. Curiosity about how and why other people arrive at values and beliefs can lead to better solutions, understanding and appreciation. Life experiences shape who we are, and sharing stories can help bridge gaps and encourage mutual respect. We can make a choice to become more curious and thus less furious. In this conversation we will share thoughts and experiences about choosing to be curious.
