• I'm not a sociologist. I can speak only for myself. I'm fundamentally curious, so new experiences feed that interest. They're a way of learning more about myself, as well as learning about the world around me. That helps me deal more effectively with the next new experience that comes my way. Good new experiences are fun, but even bad new experiences (such as the recent loss of a parent) have been sources of growth. It might be a cliche' that young people handle new experiences and activities better than old people. I think there is enough individual variation that assuming every young person loves new experiences and every old person dislkes them would be wrong a large fraction of the time.
