Curious and angry

When we are angry, we jump to conclusions. We are assuming that we are right, we are certain and we have lost something that we are entitled to. The amygdala is in the driver’s seat.

On the other hand, when we are curious, we are asking questions and observing. We are admitting that we are in a state of incompetence and trying to understand what is actually happening.

The two are not compatible.

You can’t be curious and angry at the same time.
