― Paul Graham

Curiosity Attractors: The Diffuse Obsessions that Shape our Lives
by Anne-Laure Le Cunff (4 mins)

  • Curiosity attractors are interests that keep coming back to you because they tap into your desire to learn, connect, and explore new things. They are shaped by your past experiences, values, and what you find intellectually stimulating.
  • These attractors can be a guide to your creativity and potential. By noticing what topics you're drawn to, you can identify your attractors and explore them further through small actions or projects.
  • Even if your curiosity attractors focus on big, unanswerable questions, they connect you to others who share your wonder about the world.
