Curious people

In the above photo, not just one, but two people are seemed to be curious.

Kids being curious I can understand. Children learn things only by being curious.

And adult peeping?

Maybe it is a kind of Thrill & human trait to be ‘curious about what others are up to !!

And can we consider this as a norm?

But do you enjoy doing this?

I don’t do this. Why?

I hate this habit and I am busy enough.

The habit of peeking into somebody’s affair….can one express it as ‘disgusting’ or better ignore it?

Why do people peek?

One derives demonic pleasure.

Probably it brings, gossip with toppings and some excitement resulting in rumours!

Are we not obsessed with the lives of others?


This is the sad truth.

It is said this habit is more prevalent in women. Can this be true?

The idle brain can also be a reason.

Is this habit natural?

Nothing wrong with being inquisitive, after all, we descended from monkeys

Being inquisitive is OK if it relates to our well-being, but unfortunately, we tend to be inquisitive for the wrong reasons.

And we become extremely happy for checking other’s problems, rather than taking care of our own problems!


“Most of our problems will be solved, if we focus on what is happening in our life rather than peeping into other’s life”   Misbah Abu Obeida Khan

And coming to the English Language…which word is correct to use? Peek or Peep?

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Curiosity as a trait should be seen as positive – if we’re curious we learn, we develop new ways of thinking and can innovate and be creative. Perhaps we can call this inquisitive.

    What you’re describing in adults is nosiness and invasive. I think its probably always been a trait (a negative one) but the press/media encourage this trait by feeding the desire for information on others’ lives
