Cracking The Curiosity Code

The Key to Unlocking Human Potential

Curiosity is one of the most analyzed, discussed, and written about topics in the study of human behavior. We have learned that it is innate from birth, as illustrated by the phrase, childlike curiosity. We have learned that it is essential to the survival of the entire animal kingdom. We have learned that the most successful leaders in entrepreneurs attribute their success to sustaining their child like curiosity, while many people’s sense of curiosity tends to wane or deteriorate as they age. For the longest time, we attributed that diminished state of curiosity to the aging process itself. But studies have shown that is not the case.

Why do we lose our childlike curiosity? What are the causes; and what are the consequences? Most importantly, how do we get it back? That is the essence of this book.

Complete with scientific studies, interviews with state-of-the-art leaders and entrepreneurs, and analysis, Dr. Hamilton presents her case that, our fears, our assumptions, technology, and our environment, are the major factors that contribute to our diminished curiosity. Those causes, which she has reduced to the acronym, F. A. T. E., are examined, with the means for the reader to measure each, and take the necessary action to regain their childlike curiosity.
