You could try to engage more in projects that involve brainstorming sessions, training or the opportunity to contribute novel ideas. Even switching to new projects will encourage engagement as you get to learn new things and therefore derive more satisfaction out of it. You need intellectually stimulating roles, that require your input on difficult problems a team is facing, or ideas on how to improve any of the organizational systems. You enjoy playing the "devil's advocate", but ensure you challenge in a respectful way.
You will at times express intellectual curiosity and a desire to learn.
You can try to engage in projects that contradict what you thought to be true and that you will learn from. This may encourage more engagement. Investigate things and indulge your curiosity by pursuing more intellectually stimulating roles and projects. Discover what you are curious about on an intellectual level and harness your fascination with a topic, then apply what you learn on the job.
You are not intellectually curious. You do not tend to respond to theoretical arguments, and prefer to make use of your existing knowledge.
A disinterest in learning new material as it relates to your role could put you at a disadvantage if others view this as a lack of engagement. Consider opening up to ideas that may contradict your own, especially if you are in a specialist role. Look for opportunities to apply new things you learn and consider implementing a fact-checking system, in which you can check the validity of your and your teams work.
