Does one sex explore more than the other? Is one sex more curious than the other? That's a tough question to answer definitively. We know that we explore in varying degrees. Whether sociological or biological, good or bad, this investigation attempts to determine if there are substantive differences in acting upon inquisitiveness between genders. It is suspected that men will act upon curiosity more freely than women. Men and women were measured on levels of curiosity when confronted with an object that required a perfunctory decision. Curiosity is defined in this study as seeing an article marked confidential or private, and acting in an inquiring manner by opening the instrument. Appended are: (1) CEI-T survey; and (2) Illustration of Instruments. (Contains 2 tables, 3 figures, and an 8-item bibliography.)
