Love the concept. English poorly represents this approach to life. Outgoing, extrovert emphasize social effects. Pushing the envelope, adventurous, maverick, enterprising, resourceful point to changes in the outer world. Neophile, novelty-seeking, daredevil come closer but seem joyless, and miss the vulnerability you portray so well. None capture self-driven, deliberate unfamiliarity for its own reward. Please will you name this word in your mother tongue? Perhaps English should steal it. I want to.

Penetrable and pliant are also too weak and passive, but they come to mind.

I'm picturing a professor's blank expression, thinking where is his OED, maybe it's not so bad giving you a second chance to take that exam.

comment phrases: “marry a guy and he'll provide”
Good call @Placidia. The question needs clarifying, and cultural context placement, if it's to match the intent of the Chinese phrase. There is unspoken nuance here.

Well now there's the evidence to back up his claims; this court surely admits animated gifs.

Heehee @DanBron it does seem to be the convention. And yet I am concerned the way it leans toward StackExchange being more a cult of personality than of knowledge. Of erudite people rather than of erudite answers. (Can you tell I really like erudite?)

I'm following Dan Bron's lead of adding all my ideas to one answer. Is that the right way? Rather than generating many answers and letting each one fend for its own votes?
