The Link Between Curiosity and Business Performance, Janet Gerhard of Inquizo

The importance of innovation on business success is undeniable. Innovative organizations significantly outperform other organizations. At the root of their ability to innovate is curiosity.  

For the first time, there's a tool to help leaders hire for curiosity. Research conducted by Inquizo has found the best way to measure curiosity in people is through actual and observed behaviors. Through Natural Language Processing (NLP) analyses, Inquizo sought to understand the language variables that correlate with curiosity. These studies represent the first attempt to link curiosity with language use patterns and support a growing body of work that uses language to reveal social and psychological processes.

Savvy Guest today, Michael Hvisdos and Janet Gerhard of Inquizo discuss the direct link between curiosity and performance, and their assertion that algorithms can be written and protected (patent, copyright, etc.) to accurately measure curiosity levels for employees that can predict performance. www.inquizo.com
