几个小时前，比尔盖茨在Reddit上进行问答(AMA， Ask Me Anything)，回答了许多问题。其中关于好奇心的一个问答，有点意思。
In your talk at Columbia University last month, you and Warren Buffet both emphasized the importance of “curiosity” as a personal quality.
Do you believe curiosity is a trait that is naturally inherited or a trait that can be cultivated and strengthened? If the latter, what methods would you recommend for people to develop and stimulate their own curiosity?
Good question. I think having parents and teachers reinforce your curiosity and explain what they are fascinated with makes a big difference. A lot of people lose their curiosity as they get older which is a shame. One thing that helps nowadays is that if you get confused about something it is easier than ever to find an article or video to make things clear.
What are you most curious about, Bill?
I still find the creation of life and the way the brain works the most fascinating areas. Nick Lane has some great books exploring what we know about how life started. It is amazing how little we know about the brain still but I expect we will know a lot more in 10 years.
