Usually when children are defiant it is more a sign of intelligence rather than just being naughty, the more intelligent the more curious you find
people to be, an intelligent person will check the paint but at the same time they will also believe a number given to them if it sounds realistic,
usually how ever they will agree and then check for themselves those numbers.
less curious people will just listen and really not even take in what is being said, they will blindly believe that the paint is wet and usually go
with the flow.
I am not saying that the less curious are stupid or dumb, they are probably just average, curiosity is directly related to intelligence.
example Scientists are very curious.
A person who pumps petrol is probably less curious.
Not saying pumping petrol makes you dumb, it would in general say you may be less inclined to be as curious as a scientist.
