    Default Typing Tots

    I've been enjoying typing the little kids at church. First I typed a kindergartener as an ESFp. She gets along well with the pastor's son, a 20-year-old INTp. I typed another girl as an ESFp, but she might be an ESTp. I typed a 2-year-old girl as some kind of and another as an ENTp. A girl I don't know the age of is some kind of caregiver. Maybe an ESTj.

    In nursery yesterday, I had fun observing a tiny dual pair. The before-mentioned ENTp was playing with a 1-year-old ISFp boy, and it was really cute. Do any of you make a habbit of typing the little ones?

    How could you type a one year old? That seems impossible.

    I think you can know the temperament (E/I +p/j) at least.

    My son could have been typed as a baby pretty easily I think. At least the Ip temperament. He was so easy going, lazy, good sleeper, never made a peep, just wanted to be comfortable (he's SEI, lol). When he was older, it became more evident that he's very into colors and visual patterns (way more so than most kids) as well as being super picky about what he eats and giving dramatic over-reactions to foods he hates. Also he started reminding me of my dad. And my dad would say things like "I did that as a kid" to almost everything my son would do or say. So there was that point of comparison also.

    My little brother is an ISFp, and my mom said he was a really easy baby. This boy is a foster child, and his gaurdian says he's the easiest baby she's ever had. Plus, he gets along great with the INTp.

    Unpredictability and bursts of energy are Ep related.

    Mild kids tend to be Ip.

    Boring kids tend to be Ij.

    Dependable kids tend to be Ej.

    Lol, think she's your dual?

    My parents got lucky. Two sets of illusionaries, with the older being the introvert. We also have three sets of supervision.. And my parents are duals.

    no, she's my husband's identical (ESE). But she's SUPER dependable. She's like a little mommy, which is great. She helps me remember things I'm supposed to do like sign permission forms for field trips and pack lunches, etc. lol I can be flighty that way and I appreciate her reminders. She also looks out for the other two (which occasionally can seem bossy, but generally is taken the right way). My husband and I are supervision. Husband and one daughter are identicals. Husband and other daughter are supervisory. Husband and son are mirrors. Son and I are lookalike. Daughter and I are supervisory. Other daughter and I are identicals. Of the kids, I probably feel closest to my son. But I'll bet that's cause he's the baby.

    I don't make a habit of it, but I do have one young cousin who I believe is probably ESTp, or maybe ESFp. She is quite the handful. She has no fear, is inquisitive, sturdy, independent, always moving around and doing things. She has excellent observation skills (better than me) and has a great detailed memory. For example, I took her to a local mounted police stables, and two days after the trip she could recount exactly how many horses were there, their locations in the stables, their colors, and what they were doing (the way she described, she was obviously visualizing it in her head, the spatial layout). She is always pushing the boundaries.

    Her sister is some sort of Ij, I think - perhaps Se PoLR (which I think is a little hard for her, especially since her father is ESxp, too). She is a sweet, responsive, often delicate seeming, occasionally wacky little girl. Sometimes she gets pouty and tries to manipulate. She can sit quietly and focus for relatively long periods of time. I find her much easier to connect with and manage than her sister.

    Typing babies is for creeps.

    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    My half-brothers are 5 and 7. The 7-year-old I have difficulty typing, but the 5-year-old is a very very obvious Ti-ESTp. There is simply no questioning it.

    Not often, only when I'm referring to small children instead of elementary-age ones. I only used "tots" for alliteration.

    But I'm always reminded of this child psychology teacher. What was it? I wanted to step on her eyeballs. I wanted to drop a brick on her and see if she'd react. She was like...something ugg. Like a lukewarm passive piece of meat. A cow. Her lips stuck out like a fish. Her eyes were sort of buggy. Worse, there was nothing in them to contradict this incredibly plodding, squishy feeling. And then she'd talk in a slow, unhurried, plegmatic voice that was kind of whiny. And she said things like "we're going to understand the kiddies". I wanted to stomp on her. I wanted to see blood. But no one else seemed to notice. No one else seemed to hate her like I did. She wasn't fat, or ugly, or probably even annoying for most people. But she was a blighted, idiotic, wart. Cow. Talking about the "kiddies" like she actually understood what was going on in minds a million times smarter and more honest than hers. Like she could look into honest eyes and patronize, while hers were more vacant than theirs could ever be. God, I can't find a good parallel to her. She's not really a cow, or a fish, that's an insult to the fish, because even those animals have interesting qualities sometimes. I transferred out of her class the first day.
    Aackk!! Sweet sentiments like the above-quoted turn me off teaching for life!! Why must teachers be perfect? Gah ... they're just people, presumedly doing their best.

    Ahh cool. I still don't understand how you could work up such a level of dislike for someone in a day, merely for possessing a "vacant and squishy" personality, whatever that means....

    I like alliteration. It has a special place in my internal humor-center.

    Dolphin, if you declared yourself now, I would agree with you. If you don't, though, then I'm not sure. It would explain the recent dialogue quite nicely, though.

    This brings another point to mind - should Caregiver types have the near-monopoly they do in childcare? On the one hand, they are obviously well-suited for taking care of someone weaker than themselves. On the other hand, wouldn't the Victim children be better off with Aggressor caretakers? Or would they?

    I think kids are always going to be better off with their dual or identical in charge, no matter what. But that's not usually the way life works. So it's not a bad thing for kids to learn early on how various other types are and how they interact with them, etc.
