Imagine a woman walking along the market,there will look, she will look, but she still does not have any money. And in one of the flea market, she lost a very important part of the body for a person. That's such an unpleasant story for her: the curious Varvara at the bazaar tore her nose away.

Curiosity and curiosity
In the serious textbooks on psychology you will not find the division between curiosity and curiosity, but nevertheless it is very interesting.
Curiosity is the thirst for information thata person satisfies without any benefit for himself. For example, all people (both men and women, with the first even more than the latter) like gossip. This is an example of pure, uncomplicated curiosity, because how to use the information that Paris Hilton has a new lover, or that Ronaldinho boots are made using pure gold, is completely unclear. Someone will ask: "Why do you need to know?" And in general: the curious Varvara at the bazaar tore off his nose. " In some ways, Mr. Anonymous is right, but in some ways there is not. We move on.

It is useful, after all, to know the language in which you speak or read. An inquisitive person seeks information not for her own sake, he has a purpose. And the saying "curious Varvara at the bazaar tore off his nose" scoffs those who do not have such a goal.

In general, you need to ignore the rumors, or you can lose your nose, as the heroine of the considered saying ("curious Varvara at the bazaar tore off his nose").
