Curiosity refers to the desire to know, a desire that motivates exploratory, information seeking, and learning behaviors. Yet, much is still unknown about the cognitive capacities that relate to curiosity. In addition, its assessment is ambiguous because while multiple questionnaires to assess curiosity exist, they seem to focus on different aspects of curiosity. This study examines the overlap, similarities, and differences between multiple measures of curiosity, aiming to identify a common shared component that is captured by these multiple measures, and how such a comment relates to related cognitive capacities. In Study 1, we focus on measures of curiosity in the workplace, as well as social, perceptual, personality, and epistemic aspects of curiosity. A large sample (N = 499) completed a battery of curiosity measures, and we analyzed their responses using a computational network science approach, representing each item as a node in a theoretical network, and each relation between items as a link. Over this “curiosity network”, we apply data-driven approaches to identify the core of curiosity, namely the items that are central nodes in this network. In Study 2, we assess the relationship between curiosity and other cognitive capacities, including creativity, personality, and intelligence. While examining how this relationship varies between organizational contexts. The results indicate several significant correlations; curiosity is found to be positively correlated to openness to the experience as well as to the number of uses suggested by the subject in the creativity task. Also, curiosity has been found to be negatively correlated to age such that age decreases, and curiosity increases.
