    IS thinking what kind of noun
    Your question is a bit unclear. Do you mean "What kind of a noun is thinking"?

    Thinking could either be a verb or a noun. For example:

    Tom is thinking very hard about the problem.


    Here, thinking is a verb in its -ing form (present participle) used to form the present continuous verb tense (BE + thinking).

    It can also be a noun. For example:

    Thinking is difficult for Tom.

    Here, thinking is a noun. It is the subject of the sentence. When the -ing form of a verb functions like a noun, it can be referred to as a gerund.

    If this is not what your question is about, then I have no clue what you mean.
