Most of us have experienced one of those awkward silences, you know when you can literally hear a pin drop to the floor and all the while you are just so desperately thinking of something to talk about that you end up mentioning the weather, how lame is that? Well we do live in the world of smartphones and there is an app for that and its called A Curious Question. This app is free from Google Play and iTunes, it gives you three hundred interesting questions that are almost certain to kick off a conversation that should get people thinking and talking, job done.
Humans are curious creatures. We spend so much of our time talking about nothing, just to be talking about something. But when we start to talk about interesting things – like morality, the future, or human behaviour – our eyes light up. We’re engaged and connected, interested and interesting. Sparks fly, the socially awkward penguin waddles right out of the room, and we end up talking about all sorts of interesting things for hours on end.
