Curiosity, as a human trait, has been linked to feeling generally more connected to our experiences with the world around us - including the interpersonal relationships we keep and grow.
Social scientist, Todd Kashdan, has found that "being interested is more important in cultivating and maintaining a relationship than being interesting; that's what gets the dialogue going. It's the secret juice of relationships."
When you demonstrate curiosity and actively ask questions of someone, it opens up a door for them to comfortably disclose more about themselves and then in return, ask increasingly deeper questions of you. "It sets up a spiral of give and take, which fosters intimacy."
A study from Zava, about communication in the bedroom, has indicated that the rewards of give-and-take exchanges applies to increased sexual intimacy as well. Regardless of gender or nationality, their study participants demonstrated a positive link between sexual satisfaction and their partners' communication skills.
