Hyper-curiosity is a "psychological trait" common with scientists and geniuses. It is a "mental hunger" of wanting to know the details of everything.!

 

People with this trait don't just listen,  they find out.!  

They don't like assumptions or doctrine, they want clarifications backed with experiments.  Hyper-curiosity can be a glorious talent or destruction depending on how individuals harness this special gift. 

Children with such gifts are very sensitive and require special parenting and guidance. Their limitless desire to know everything makes them odd and weird in their thinking and imagination. They ask themselves questions that many will avoid due to religion or cultural preconceptions on some topics. 

All great scientists and researchers have this psychological trait, but their success largely depends on their environment. 
They can only function in special environments that challenge their thinking and fuel their passions.
 

The major problem with this set of people is when they are in a "wrong environment", they tend to over-think without having the confidence to share their thoughts or chances to experiment on it. 

They have hundreds of unanswered questions roaming their minds but seems no one wants to listen. This got them lost in their thinking & imagination and makes them to lives all in their head.!

They forget normal routines so easily such as the address of a place they are going to or what they want to do next. They can even forget their own phone number or date of birth. 

They might also become antisocial, shy, anxious & full of phobias! This is when a glorious talent turns into a destruction tool.

 

***Parents with this type of children should understand the following;

1. They can't survive in a "mentally lonely" environment, they need people of like-minds to share their thoughts with.

2. Everything interests them so they have no direction of thought on their own. They need someone to guide their mental focus to a particular goal at a time 

3. Travelling and adventures are a must for this set of humans, to help them unlock their full mental capacity. 

4. They hate boring classes and lengthy notes, all they care for is experimenting and analysis. They should be attached to role models that can practically analyze things for them

5. They need someone to read through their mind and understand the complexity of their thoughts. They want someone who is interested in listening to every "jargon" in their head.

6. They tend to behave very oddly or become deviant if they are not in the right environment for their mind. 

7. They mostly show dull academic performances from onset until they grow to discover themselves and build confidence in who they are.

They are born geniuses, just like "Gold" hidden deep in the earth's crust, they need someone to dig them out, polish, and place them in the right environment where their worth will be valued.!
