This is my first post here, as I only yesterday was recommended to visit the site. But I would say that a very good reason Pippin was drawn to the palantir was...he was Pippin. He's a younger hobbit that, throughout the books, shows a remarkable ability to get into trouble. Whether he was stealing from farmer Maggot's crop or dropping rocks into wells in Moria, he was always up to something. The palantir would have seemed an almost unresistable object to his curious mind. And the best way to get a curious fellow like Pip to do something tell him not to. Also, it makes for an interesting and exciting moment in the story. Not everything has to be the result of supernatural powers and influence.
