Supposedly we're all born with our E-type. What I want to know, however, is when these traits tend to start playing out, and why they might not.
For example, I'm someone who is almost certainly either type 5 or type 9. However, the distinguishing factors haven't applied to me throughout my life. I'm only 20, but I've gone from being an avoidant, head-in-the-sand, happily ever after person to a more or less calm individual (out of disinterest) that tends not to be confrontational but likes to be for a good reason, and is drawn to darker ideas and forms of expression. I'm curious if there's much said about enneatype for kids or whether one should even consider habits before a certain age.
