Yes, Cher913, I have been told also that I ask a lot of questions. I am even told that by my children. Once when I was attending a beauty class with my sister she told me after the class was over that some of the students did not like it when I asked a lot of questions. I told her that they were apparently too shy to ask them for themselves and envied me for having the courage to ask them. I had a friend woman who was dating a Nigerian man and when I went to visit her and I met him there. So he and I began a conversation while my friend was preparing a meal in her kitchen. The subject came up about his family in Nigeria. So I asked him if he was married and he quite frankly told me that he was and that she, his wife and kids, lived in Nigeria. My friend, after hearing the news, looked aghast at him as if she could not believe it. So I consider it a gift to be able to ask questions of people. For if I had not asked the question she would not have known that her boy, man, friend was wed.

Sometimes you have to question and be curious in order to understand. That takes a special person though to be able to control that curiosity! I love to find out more information. That feeling is awesome because it gives me a sense of success and greater understanding.

I think most people who read a lot and like to write (especially nonfiction) are curious people. I love to read writers who put a lot of interesting things into their work. I think that is one reason why Dan Brown, who wrote the "Da Vinci Code" was so popular. He got people thinking about a lot of subjects in a different way...things that we think we know, but still have a lot to learn about. People learn things in different ways. Some people are very personable and ask a lot of questions. I envy them because sometimes (not always) I can be shy. Then I am the sort of person who loves to do research. When I was in college it was always hard for me to stop researching my subject and start writing my papers. The research could just go on and on.
