Need for Cognition (NFC) is the scientific measure of intellectual curiosity. The drive to make sense of the world is a universal characteristic of human beings, but the world is divided into those who always seek out shortcuts and those who prefer the scenic routes. Researchers and psychologists use a scale of NFC to distinguish between individuals who like their mental life to be as straightforward as possible and those who derive such satisfaction and pleasure from intellectual challenges.
The simple questionnaire will help assess your where curiosity (NFC) is. Write your answers down to review after you complete the NFC Quiz.
