The Sherlock Instinct

As infants we have so much wonder and amazement in our minds when we look at anything new and different. We want to explore, know and learn more. Owing to this inquisitiveness, we develop cognition, language, better understanding of our environment and learn more about human behaviour. Gradually, this inquisitiveness helps spark our interests in various subjects and in order to fathom better, we start questioning and speculating things – many a times verbally. This inclination to be investigative has got a lot to do with the way Humanity has been designed by the creator. If we didn’t have inquisitiveness at all, we still would be an enormous bunch of Hunter-gatherers or just like other mammals – Just existing to do that basic things – eat and sleep. But on the contrary, given the complexity of human brain and the memory system, we can remember, learn and reflect on meanings and intentions and evolve every day. We are all “Sherlock(s)” in our own ways. That is the reason the “Why?” is almost so irresistible to our brains. Owing to this, humans developed an amazing trait called as a Hypersensitive Agency- Detecting Device or HADD. It is a mechanism that allows humans to feel that many things in nature can act on their own or have “Agency”. (Like the predators feel an urge to hunt when they are hungry, they needn’t be told to do so). HADD shapes our belief systems inclined to “the Positive”, “the Negative” and tangents to both these aspects. But unfortunately, the way our society functions, it kills or dumbs down this inquisitive side of our brain. We start following the crowd and accept the pre-set beliefs about things, life and other humans. But on the other hand, let’s say we continue embracing our curiosity to learn how to make everything better in our lives in all aspects, I feel we can definitely add more meaning to our lives and contribute more to the society. So let’s keep Sherlock-ing around.
