    Here's my opinion on the matter: it depends on the individual. However, it also depends on the person's relationships as to how much they act like their type.

    My theory is that the more dualized you are, and for longer, the more you act like yourself AND YOUR DUAL. So for instance, a dual pair may be the easiest to type of all. And a pair that's been together for 30 years may be easier than a pair that's been together for 2 years.

    If you're not dualized, you *may* seem different than your actual type due to behaviors you've learned that make an inter-quadra marriage work, for instance.

    All things being equal though, I think older people are easier to type because they've generally made peace with who they are and aren't reluctant to just be who they are.

    I've read somewhere that older people are harder to type than younger ones because you usually get more balanced in your personality when you grow old. I'm not sure if it's right, but it makes sense to me.

    I think as people get older they learn to appreciate devalued IE's more. The younger people are, the more they take a "whatever" approach to their weaknesses and the things they don't appreciate, but as they live life and it becomes more obvious how these things are limiting them, they start to think "hmm... maybe I really am missing out on something."

    Of course, the opposite probably happens with some people. Over time, their successes and failures solidify their sense of "who they are" and their personality becomes more sharply defined. But I'd guess the first trend is more common.

    It feels to me like people get more like themselves as they get older and are less influenced by trends, so I vote that older people are easier to type.

    I don't know. BTW, I find "rural people" easier to type than "urban people". Perhaps it doesn't make sense to you, but people who live in big cities are more "balanced" whereas red necks are addicted to their ego functions because they don't develop their weak points IMO.

    I got the impression younger people tend to have more externally noticeable stereotypical behaviors (that might or not help with distant typing) but older people are easier to type through proper dialog because they tend to know who they are and acknowledge their weaknesses more readily (whereas younger persons tend to think they are invincible or that their skills are infinite)

    A teenager might say "no way I'm any of these 16 squares, I'm better than that", and adult might say "ok I have to admit I'm not perfect, but there are things where I'm more skilled than the average person, and areas where I'm not good at"...
    "Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.
    At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions."

    C. G. Jung
