"inquisitive" sign history

I'm writing an essay, and I am supposed to pick three words that describe myself. Since I'm studying three languages right now and foreign languages are a big part of who I am, I decided to use one word from each language. I want to use something to the effect of "inquisitive" from ASL, and the sign I'm thinking of is wiggling the index finger many times (QUESTION-QUESTION-QUESTION).

I feel like this is a very bizarre question, but I'm curious whether to a native signer there would be any significance in moving my finger sort of in the shape of a question mark while I do sign it.

Thank you very much!
