Do you often want to know things that you aren't supposed to?

In my personal opinion, it's always better to know as much as possible in the long run. You can plan better or act accordingly if you have more information about anything on your hand. Yeah there's news where it's embarrassing or terrifying to know in the immediate future, but overall I always want to know what's going on for the long term.

Actually I kinda am guilty of this, I often want to know everything that is said about me personally, good or bad, because I think I can use it, I often want to know what others are saying about me when Im not around cause I want to use it to improve myself if it's bad, even things that may end up hurting my feelings, I might need to hear it to correct things about myself.

I love knowing things I'm not supposed to. It interests me. It's like being told not to do something; it's only going to make you want to do that thing even more.

Absolutely, though I draw the line at gossip. If the information is not a factual claim of some sort, I'd either rather not know it or will not believe it when I hear/read it, because sometimes the gaining of knowledge is inevitable.

Essentially, I am the background girls and guys in Grease's Summer Nights, the ones who want to know all the personal details of Danny and Sandy's romantic time together. Tell me more, tell me more!

Yes. I am also someone who doesn't have a problem asking things like that to people, even if it's generally frowned upon. If I wonder something, I ask it, though.

There are times when I'm curious about the things I'm not supposed to know about, but I tend to stay away from anything that seems suspicious.

I am an info-sponge. I love to know things, especially the top-secret stuff. I normally don't spread info around, though. I keep things to myself and brood over them. I especially like to know what people think of me, but in the long run, I really don't give a gnat's ass about what they think of me anyway.

Yeah! I'm a very curious person and I've tried in the past to get information out of people when I think it's particularly juicy and something I really wanna know.

I've stopped that now though. I'm still very curious and I like to know things, but I've discovered that finding things out about people means so much more if they trust you enough to tell you without you having to twist their arm. So now if I ask a question and people say they'd rather not tell me, then I tell them that's fine and back off. I don't want to know things that people don't want me to know, because I'd much rather I know because they think enough of me to tell me.

Generally not. Discretion is something well to advise if one wishes to 'enjoy life', but of course I only appreciate that after having come to know things. It makes one fearful, bitter and finally complacent... or englightened, as some cultures have put it. There's a quote that goes 'brave is he who knows everything yet fears nothing', I think instead that foolish is he who knows everything yet still cares.

It depends, if it's something rather interesting, then I would wanna know. If it's something pretty dull, I wouldn't even care a bit lol.

Almost never actually. Nine times out of ten, if it doesn't deal with it, I'd rather not know. Last thing I need is unnecessary drama.

Hoooooold up here - knowing things you shouldn't know doesn't mean you have to act on them and make drama, haha. d:

Anyway, yeah, all the time. It's probably because I just know a lot of people, talk to a lot of people, and genuinely I'm good at reading situations fairly well. People also tend to tell me stuff since I don't usually pass it on as, like Bloodex said, I don't want the drama that invariably comes with that. Not gonna say I don't like it at all. Indeed, it's something I use as much as I possibly can! I'm naturally pretty curious, so.

I'm really curious, and it also carries over to forums where I love stalking conversations. I love looking at confidential stuff a lot hehehehehehehe.

Almost never, unless I didn't know before that I wasn't supposed to do it. By most standards, I'm what you'd call a goody-two-shoes. xD

Indeed, I can be a very nosy and curious person. I am the type who likes to always be in the know about what is happening around them, no matter how upsetting it may be.

Also, basically this below

Yeeees. I want to know all the things. I am very nosy and curious.

However, once I know them, I usually stay quiet about it!! I just want to know for the sake of it, not to gossip around.

I would rather know something, then weight it against my prior knowledge to observe, analyze, & theorize; as to it's existence, the how & the why of it.

In my opinion, it is the most fool-resistant way to advance as a person.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner.

I'm not as nosy as I used to be, and I normally don't try to come off as curious, but I really really am. I'm not massively ashamed of it, as I'm very good at keeping secrets. I just like to hear about what other people are getting up to, rather than spreading it around myself. That's not too bad, is it?

I am curious about many things, yes, but it's not something that'll bother me if I don't find out. But, I'd rather know more than I have to than be left in the dark.
