A figuring-out kind of person

”For example there are hidden costs in telling people things. If a student can figure something out for him- or herself, explictly providing the information preempts the student’s opportunity to build a sense of agency and independence, which, in turn affects the relationship between teacher and student. Think about it. When you figure something out for yourself, there is a certain thrill in the figuring. After a few successfull experiences, you might start to think that figuring things out is something that you can actually do. Maybe you are even a figuring-out kind of person, encouraging an agentive dimension to identity.”

Peter H. Johnston (2004) Choice Words, s. 8
