Not all objects you'll encounter in Terraform will originate in providers though, so a more general answer that will work for any object you can refer to in an expression is to run
terraform console and then ask it for the type of the value in question:
Unfortunately for a resource (either a
data block) it won't yet have a known type until it's been created or read for the first time, and so if your configuration isn't valid then you would need to make it valid enough to run
terraform apply successfully before you could use this technique. But for objects that are defined within the Terraform configuration itself, rather than by external operations that haven't run yet, the console is a useful way to inspect data and data types.
