In this short-ish, sharp-ish inbetweener episode, The Occupational PHilosophers explore a test for curiosity called The need for cognition (NFC)
Whilst it seems to come in a few different forms, the one that The Occupational Philosophers explore has 20 questions/statements.
Some of these include:
- Thinking is not my idea of fun
- I only think as hard as I have to
- The idea of relying on thought to make my way to the top appeals to me..
They also explore:
- Some classic lines from Oscar Wilde’s last gig at the Brixton Academy
- Empathic Curiosity – the desire to know others
Simon also felt happy he had discovered a big word -‘Epistemic Curiosity’.
Upon further exploration, the Occupational Philosophers need to do some more exploration to provide a worthwhile link to this test. That will also be followed by links to Simon and John’s scores.
Hope you enjoy the show!
FYI: The Inbetweeners episodes are just that – smaller episodes ‘in between’ the longer format episodes designed to give a little kickstart to enable you to be the most curious, creative and imaginative cat you can be – and have some fun in the process.
