For your consideration:
Cynicism = Don’t know + don’t care + not believing it
Curiosity = Don’t know much about it + interested in knowing more
Skepticism = Know a little already + convince me + gonna ask critical questions
Skeptiosity = Curiosity + Skepticism
Cynicism blocks learning.
Curiosity invites learning.
Skepticism calibrates learning.
Skeptiosity accelerates learning.
