Why do you come to TED conversations?

I have a secret to confess.

I have become increasingly addicted to TED talks. And only very recently have I discovered TED conversations, it's great.

Then I started reflecting- why do I do this? To get inspiration? To express my opinions or get comfort from recognition? To help people?
I hope my true intention is to want to learn new things.

So I'm curious and want to throw the question to the floor- Why do YOU leave comments at conversations?

  • Oct 26 2013: To find people with wildly different perspectives on the world, humanity, art, literature etc. than myself, perspectives that I would never have come across naturally by being myself.

    I'll then adapt and add this new way of thinking to my own, this lush new take on the world and see everything I saw before but in a new light.
    I wish to broaden my horizons with it all so that I may become a more knowledgeable and truly wiser person.

    For it is all so highly interesting.
    • Oct 26 2013: I could not have stated MY reasons for coming to TED better then YOU have stated, thank you.
