They are related.. To find a subject interesting is to be interested in it. "I am interested in the history of other countries and cultures" "I find the history of other countries interesting" You can show interest (be interested) in what someone has to say, although you may not find the topic they are discussing very interesting.

If something is "interesting" it makes you curious and eager to learn more. For example, you could say, "the teacher gave an interesting lesson". The word "Interesting" describes different THINGS. A book can be "interesting". A thought can be "interesting". When a person is "interested" they pay attention and listen. For example, "I was interested in what the child had to say about the game". The word "interested" describes people's REACTIONS. Hope this helps

People are inerested - they want to find out. The thing they are interested in, is interesting. So "interesting" is a personal opinion. . I am interested in answering question. To me, these questions are interesting. Other may not find the questions interesting. Those people will not be interested to answert the question. . Some topics, I find boring. If I read them too long, I will become bored. .
