I have always been one to question what seemed obvious, so I never had to really work on developing my critical thinking skills. Even as a child, I often challenged my teachers by asking them why things were a certain way, and I also often got in trouble because of this, but I think it has made me a deeper person.
I always have a ton of opinions and thoughts on everything from philosophy to current news. Some of my friends enjoy debating with me, because I have plenty to say. Others avoid me, because they are not critical thinkers, and the fact that I am forcing them to think bothers them.
I think that it is better to question why than to never wonder. How else are we going to unlock secrets and really see things for what they are?
