Inquisitive? Skeptic?

Can you be more specific about the type of questioning? Like, “I don’t believe you so I’m going to ask questions to find holes in your story/logic”? Or “everything in the world is interesting and I need to know everything you can possibly tell me”?

@EffieTrinket:  +1. I was going to say “irritating”, but annoying works just as well.

@Taeyers:  +1 be more specific

If someone is always questioning everything they could be distrustful, paranoid, skeptical, curious, interested, etc etc.

In a postive way: inquisitive, curious, knowledge-seeker

In a neutral way: skeptic, freethinker, rationalist

In a negative way: cynic, pessimist, scoffer, doubting thomas, disbeliever, dissenter
