Abstract
Using longitudinal data from 209 university students, we examined the role of two forms of trait curiosity (specific and diversive) as antecedents of adaptation behaviors (information seeking and positive framing) and Satisfaction with online education courses. Results suggest that specific curiosity predicts information seeking behaviors, whereas diversive curiosity promotes positive framing. Overall, the study validates the role of curiosity as a multifaceted individual difference that serves as an antecedent to satisfaction with online education courses.
