Curiosity leads to success

Complexities of human psychology are unlimited, very complicated and often difficult to comprehend. On characteristic of human beings is seldom to be satisfied with what we have and often to want something more or something different.

Supposing individuals are not so talented but they intend to succeed, it is advisable for them to have passion and curiosity. Accordingly, when hearing Einstein's remark "I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious" we can perceive its connotation. Apparently, this saying can be naturally associated with the significance of curiosity.

In our daily life, it is common for people to regard talents as the key to success in various fields. However, an increasing number of wise men find it more important to have curiosity, if they have no distinctive gifts. Two typical examples can be given: if students have no better ability in study, their curiosity helps them to acquire knowledge; if scientists have no talents in invention, their curiosity helps them to create and innovate. It is curiosity that enables them to build up adequate inspiration, power and motivation to pursue and explore. As a matter of fact, intelligent people in large numbers have come to realize the importance of curiosity.

If there was no curiosity, we would still be living in the stone ages. Most of us are driven to do things in the most efficient way possible, which leads to experimentation and innovation. This is why we no longer use ice blocks in our refrigerators and why we drive motorized cars instead of horse drawn carriages. We have taken this proclivity to a positive extreme by investigating every

aspect of the tangible and intangible world, in the name of satisfying our thirst for knowledge and understanding.

Generally speaking, most people know that they are prone to being curious with the outside world and some try harder than others to control it. How we recognize and deal with these feelings will dictate whether our outcome is constructive or destructive.

As a college student, I am convinced that it is of great necessity for

youngsters to maintain and enhance their curiosity for unknown things. Thus, teachers and parents should educate, advocate and encourage their teenagers to cultivate this awareness. Do bear in mind: being passionately curious leads to success.

The harm caused by misleading information online

As is vividly depicted in the picture, there is a man sitting in front of the computer, searching information from the Internet worriedly, with a woman taking a cup of coffee at the door to refresh him. Furthermore, there is a caption under the picture, which reads "I just feel unfortunate to live in a world with so much misleading information". Simple as the picture is, the meaning is thought-provoking.

For one thing, the Internet has offered us great convenience. For instance, we can get knowledge about almost all aspects from the Internet without going out. For another, with so much information on the Internet, it is difficult for us to distinguish the true information from the misleading one. And if we believed the misleading information, we might suffer from great loss because the misleading information may get people into bad habits, even make them

commit crimes. What's more, they may shadow our routine life or even hinder the progress of our society. Lack of enough consideration, we are easily misled by false information which always appears in bulk on the webpage. Some will alter their plans to deal with the so-called disaster but only affect their normal life; a few may even go further to violate social security and economic

trend. Moreover, if the misleading news isn't corrected soon, there may be a trust crisis between individuals and the government. For example, the nuclear leakage in Japan in 2011 has caused great panic in Eastern China, where

thousands of people went out to rob salt after the rumor that salt can prevent radiation, and ended in a turbulence in the domestic market.

Judging from the reams of evidence, it is safe for us to conclude that misleading information is a dangerous obstacle gripping economic prosperity and social progress. Only if we are sure that the information on the Internet is true, can we live in a harmonious society.

From my perspective, it is high time that the authorities concerned

established relevant regulations to better the environment of the virtual world. Only in this way can both people and our country benefit a lot from the

development of high technology.
