    Default My son

    He's only 3 and a half, but...any thoughts? I'm thinking he might be either ENFp or ENTp...or maybe an ESp...

    Sorry it's so dark...

    I would guess ESTp. There doesn't seem much to suggest intuitive, any excitement for abstract ideas or possibilities, but he seems to get quite excited to throw the cards around and trying to catch them at the end, enjoying the different colors, talking gibberish, etc. Those are all exploring the world in a physical sense.

    Remarkably he reminds me of my college roommate I had typed as ESTp. But he's still only 3 and a half. But take my vote with a grain of salt, I'm still new to socionics. It's my understanding though that ENTp and ENFp children are usually a bit quieter, love to read, and not as hyperactive. This guy does have a lot of energy though, at least in this clip.

    Looks like you're a good mother helping him learn his letters/sounds. He'll be at an advantage to other kids when he starts school. And good patience with all the messes lol. Do you try to get him to help you clean up at all?

    When I saw your first video, I half jokingly thought "her boy is probably Se-base." I kinda like that typing.

    Some sort of Exxp would be my guess. Your son is adorable! Great video.

    lol I think he might be estp too, I feel very balanced and happy when I'm watching him. But all kids are cute like that so I don't know.

    I say either enfp, entp or estp. Esfp maybe too. I think ep energy tho.

    He's gonna fall in romantic love with an ip girl when he gets older, just you watch. =p

    After due consideration, Se-base does make a lot more sense than Ne-base.

    F vs. T is harder to pinpoint...though, he does have a lot of emotional expression, and he seems to enjoy invoking an emotional response in others.

    That would be interesting if he did turn out to be ESFp; then he'd be my look-a-like and Daddy's dual

    Just fyi, that could also be Fe-HA. I don't know if it would manifest at such a young age, but it's just something to keep in mind I guess. I suggest keeping a look out for things that might indicate Ti or Fi.

    Since I have some time this morning, some other observations about my son...

    Lately he's taken to saying to me and Daddy, "I love you...but sometimes you yell at me and it makes me sad."

    Once in a while he will come to a realization about something and seemingly out of nowhere comment on it. Like, the other day he said to me, "Thunder is a bad thing that happens to the world!"

    We like to take walks, and at one point on the way to the mall there's this short wall painted yellow, and my son calls it a "big cheese."

    He is not at all shy about performing in front of people. He loves to make people laugh.

    This one really distresses me...Whenever he gets aggressive with his baby brother and I ask him why, he says "because I like to."

    He likes to do the same things over and over. He plays with the same toys, in the same way every time. Whenever he comes across a dandelion in the grass that has gone to seed, he has to pick it and he'll say "a-bra-ca-dabra!" and wave the dandelion so the seeds go flying; he cannot pass up a single opportunity to do this. He'll take notice of every single fire hydrant. He wants me to read every single sign to him.

    He thinks with his stomach lol He comes up to me in the morning and says, "My tummy says I'm hungry." Or he's even appealed to his tummy for other things, like "My tummy says I'm in the mood of watching a movie!" As if I'm more likely to listen to his tummy...

    I love these details and am especially amused because my own son, now 7, would have done absolutely none of these things. Not. One. (Tentatively typed him ILE here with the help of the locals.)

    I know, children are all so different, it's fun to see their individual personalities come out.

    Your son is cute! I wouldn't want to suggest a typing yet, because I feel that it would be based on sort of superficial things (and I don't know that the the full type is 100% set by age 3, but that's just my opinion). But some general Ep type seems reasonable, especially if that's a normal/habitual state for him. I liked making messes too, when I was tiny, I'm sure (and I definitely liked talking in gibberish, although, now that I think about it, not as much as my SEE brother), but I don't think that being that active was really normal for me. I was much more interested in sitting in front of the TV and watching Aladdin and/or Sister Act II for the millionth time.

    In other news, when I heard your voice, I was legit frightened because you sound so much like a lady I work with. But then I remembered that she doesn't have a kid, her husband's definitely not ILI, and her child would be half-Latino, so you can't be her, lol.

    Good luck with finding your son's type. One good thing about having different-quadra parents is that no matter what type he is, he'll have two valued elements in common with one of you guys.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    The other day I was watching Winnie the Pooh with my son and my niece, and you know who he reminds me of?

    Tigger. He is 100% Tigger.
