I’m working on a anthropology discussion question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.

Curiosity is being willing to ask questions without expecting a certain answer.

Curiosity is openmindedness to investigate, whatever you might find.

Curiosity is not about asking questions to get the answers or the information you want or need. Esp. not to argue against something. Like I’m going to understand X so I can shut it down. That’s not really curiosity. Curiosity doesn’t ground itself in a defensiveness. Curiosity is not fear-based. It is quite neutral in its emotionality.

Sometimes, curiosity leans toward the positive. Where a person says, “I know who I am. I feel safe asking questions and pondering the answers I find.” Maybe I will change my mind about something. Maybe I will get new information that helps me grow as a person or address a problem or innovate. It’s okay to change and grow, because I am still in charge of my own identity. I’m confident that I can make decisions about who I am and who I want to be, not out of defensiveness or fear.

I’m talking about curiosity, because you can’t be empathetic without a strong sense of curiosity. Empathy has been described as a way to see around the corner in someone’s life. If someone has experienced something (a loss, a trauma, a birth of a child, a joyful surprise), empathy is imagining what’s it’s like for that person. You can’t really walk in their shoes and experience what they did. But you can be curious about it. You can try to imagine what’s it’s like for them. Notice I am not saying that you would be curious or imagine what it would be like for you. Here’s the difference. Someone’s cat is hit by a car. You could imagine what it would be like if your own pet were injured and then based on how you would feel about it, you could offer words or actions to this other person. But that’s really just projecting your own ideas, experiences, or feelings onto someone else. That’s sympathy. Not empathy. We need to make an attention shift from ourselves to others.

Curiosity asks: How does it feel for that person in that situation? What if their cat was the only pet they ever had? But you have had and lost many pets. What if that person lives alone and the cat has been their only companion through divorce and trauma in their life? But you have never gone through a divorce with your pet as your only roommate. What if that cat was a street rescue that the person found in their backyard, believing themselves to be chosen by the cat and then nurturing it back to health? But your pets all came as gifts from friends and family. What if that person has never lost a loved one but you are familiar with saying goodbye to dear ones.

Curiosity is absolutely necessary to developing empathy, the ability to see into someone’s experience without judgment. Creativity then arises from our motivation to meet other people’s needs. We can begin to see the next steps in a relationship, in a business, in an action plan. There are practical and beneficial consequences of thinking this way.

– How many different countries produced food items at the site?

The most amount of produce is from the United States and second most is from Mexico. However, their were more exotic produce like Keowee, pomegranate from Chile and only ginger from Peru and Pineapple from Costa Rica. Globalization has made it possible to people to have access to verity of produce.

– What’s more expensive, generally? The food items produced locally or the food items produced far away?

Produce was cheaper from Mexico compared to the produce from USA, for example 2 cucumbers were for one dollar from Mexico but USA cucumbers were 2 for five dollars (but the quality of the USA cucumbers were fresher) However food from further away from the United States was more expensive for example ginger was $3.49 per pound from Peru and Pomegranate from Chile for $5.00 but same produce were not available from USA. Price will prevent many people from enjoying some of these more expensive goods.

– Are foods imported from other countries more likely to be fresh or packaged?

Quite a bit of food imported Mexico is fresh but only couple of items of fresh food is imported from Peru and Chile.

– What country provides the most food for the site?

United States provides most of the food for Ralphs Grocery Store near me.

– What other things can you learn about the globalization of food by observing the site?

Then, for your discussion, you will post two paragraphs (5 sentences minimum each).

Paragraph 1: Describe your observation. What did you learn? What data did you gather? Where did you go?

I visited the Ralphs Grocery store near my apartment. I asked the produce worker how I can find out where the food comes from, he was kind enough to direct me to labels that were on the produce indicating country or production. I went around to all the fruit/vegetables and wrote down the price and origin of the produce. I never paid attention to all the labels on the fruit and vegetable that tell you where the food is from. I learned fresh food is imported from not only Mexico but from other places like Peru and Chile but I was surprised to see that not many foreign vendors sold produce to Ralphs, which I would think has do with the high cost to export produce.

Paragraph 2: Answer this question using information from this unit and from your observation activity. What does it mean to eat local? Make an argument for or against eating local.
