Hi, you know she is confident about her intelegence, can form openions on issues, and values, can make personal desicions, can disagree with others views. Means she is doing all these things by her own, and you have observed.
It seems she is quite normal, and might be going for advise for self confidence, some times.
On line i may not be in a position to judge, if so it might be a obsesive compulsive neurosis. She want to hear her openion from some one who is besides. In this case if you observe the same position several times, you can consult a psychologist for diagnosis and treatment. Thank you.
