    Agreed.

    I was always the one who raised her hand in class. Way more than my NJ friends.

    Err, wouldn't this correlate to the Big 5's inquisitive trait? Wouldn't any MBTI type be a "questioner" but for different means, hence different functions?

    I was the "why" kid. Although more specifically, I was the "But what about x?" and "How does y work?" and "Is that like w in z?" kid. Never had a problem with questioning teachers on apparent inconsistencies or interesting links. In retrospect I must have driven both them and my classmates bonkers...

    I'd be a card-carrying sensotard, but I can't find the goddamn card.

    This was me in college. My husband still won't let me live it down, because his vast array of friends all talked about me as the weirdo who spoke super softly yet engaged too much in class, which he then told me about once we started dating. Although the profs always seemed to enjoy it.

    Nps of course. The opposite of the I will blindly accept authority types :p
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    INTP (the Architect) is the most precise in thought and language of all the types, making their questions the most penetratingly wise and insightful of them all!

    Yes.

    I ask questions ALL THE TIME, and always have. It's the way to get answers. And answers make life interesting.

    I agree, NP's for sure.

    I ask questions a lot in class if I think it's relevant to the class discussion and good etiquette, and if not, I'll wait until after class.

    I make Ne connections all the time, and come up with crazy ideas which I want to bounce off other people. And I ask a lot of questions in order to better understand the underlying principles, explain inconsistencies, and fully understand the "essence" of an idea; or sometimes to blend ideas and systems. Connecting thought systems is like my favorite thing.

    Agreed, especially ENxPs. I would agree IxTPs would too but probably not so much. But in a real world case we all would at some stage

    edit: uhm, it slipped my attention that this thread is about class or young people, when i wrote this, my reply is general:

    extroverted perception users (dom or aux) (they are aimlessly curious, also testing you, running you through virtual scenarios (experiential situations, provoking you), to get to know you, how will you react?)

    and extroverted thinking dominance (they are "questioning", checking if your are of sound logic/reason (running you through logical problems), also delegate half of their thinking to you, but Ne doms do the latter too)

    for the opposite types (introverted perception, having no aimless curiosity, since it's very focused):
    sensors ask a little more than intuitives, because they ask without real curiosity, simply for the experience of it, hoping to keep a flow going,
    while the intuitives among these types would rather tend to only ask with a particular expectation in mind, when they are on to something specific (multiple choice like), that's because intuition seeks the "invisible" (according to sensation's definition of what is visible), but if it were to ask randomly, it would receive mostly visible stuff from most of everyone, which is annoying to intuition, it's just noise. the pattern can therefore depend entirely on whom they are talking with, or whether the situation allows the inquiry into their particular interests (such as your psychology, maybe) or not. any pattern depends on plenty of circumstances ...
