Strong opinions about fairness, but in more personal terms (i.e. He has more than I do.”

Asks questions about abstract concepts that have no easy answers

Is totally involved; may have very hard time getting over something upsetting

Totally involved!; intense curiosity about many things or one topic of current interest
