  1. Trait curiosity is the concept that all humans are curious by nature. Psychologists classify trait curiosity in a person according to the breadth of his or her curiosity (the range of topics a person is interested in) or depth of his or her curiosity (the level of interest in a single topic). Trait curiosity explains why some people have a life-long interest in learning for its own sake, and others experiment with drugs or dangerous activities.
