It is possible to be both curious and knowledgeable. Scientists are the best examples of this happy combination. I don’t think curiosity alone would have led to so many scientific inventions. The curiosity-knowledge dichotomy is a debatable proposition. By knowledge, I don’t mean information which we google. Knowledge is diving deeper into any subject, exploring all possibilities. It is not static. One has to go on polishing and sharpening the knowledge. This is not to deny the fact that curiosity spurs innovation.
My verdict is both curiosity and knowledge are important.
