    I think a 12 year old joined awhile back and I told them to come back when they were older or something like that. I am pretty sure you have to claim to be over a certain age to even join the forum.

    I think a person's personality is showing at age 11, but not very well. And especially not very well over text.

    When I was eleven, I was like a bag of cats, going every which way and without any thought-out direction, more reaction-with-little-experience than action or agency. If that person were as undeveloped at age eleven as I was, typing them would be impossible.

    11 years old and already having identity issues...

    It might vary based on the individual, but I don't think anyone should be typed before their late teens if not early twenties.

    Quite common, wouldn't you say? Ask any parent ;-)

    Meh, I would probably see if they had some stupid obvious imbalance like I do or would've made apparent, but unfortunately, yeah difficulty is hard. But yeah, I probably would have typed NT pretty much any time after a certain age. IDK.

    I generally treat all people the same, and so that knowledge kind of means nothing to me.

    I have no idea. Its weird for a 11 year old kid to be on this forum. It means I have to adjust what I say and do for the ears of the children.

    Do you think its cool for a kid to be on here? Or were you just trying to pull a "gotcha moment"? Cause I think its a gotcha moment.

    I assumed you were saying exposure to the Internet was bad for everyone, not just 11-year-olds.

    Anyway, what would you feel you have to adjust? I'm not sure what it is you think an 11-year-old shouldn't read, or why you think that, but any 11-year-old online enough to find an obscure forum on Socionics has either already found "adult" content or is going to be finding it quite soon. And it's not like you can delete all older posts on the forum that you don't think are suitable for 11-year-olds to read. Better to try to be helpful, rather than ban or snub them, which is as likely as not to make them more curious about whatever it is you don't want them to see, and encourage them to lie.

    I typed my brother when he was nine. (I would have gotten his subtype wrong if I'd tried that.) I have no problem trying to type an 11-year-old, but this isn't a part of the internet where an 11-year-old should be.

    Yeah nah, when I was 11 I was on the internet, and I turned out a lot better for it. There's a thing where if you leave a computer in a poor village, people use it to learn to do things. I'd say that's generally true of a child, and why people ought to be familiar with the internet from an early age. For example, I wish for coding classes to be mandatory, and for people to be taught how a computer works. Nobody did that for me untill college, and that's kind of what field I want to go into. I can thus say sufficiently that most of my schooling is this a waste, and all the stuff I learned about computers on the side is going to probably make me a lot of money one day.

    But yeah, I'm on the more liberal side of things regarding what a child sees. The world is not going to change when they're older. There's no point in obscuring the ugly truth to someone who cares to try to know. I believe that many people will simply shrug and go about their business like I did.

    I don't think I'd be able to type a kid. I started trying to type my kids at that age, but I knew them better than they knew themselves. I was right about my son, but my daughter was like a bag of cats, like how Adam described. She turned out SLE, I think. They're 16 and 15 now.

    Just think of all the people on here at the mental level of an 11 year old anyway. Maybe that’s why it’s so hard for us to type some of each other.

    Hopefully no 11 year olds would be jaded and bored enough in their own lives to want to join this forum, although in retrospect that’s when I started to get into typology and look at these sorts of places on the internet actually. *sheds a single teardrop for myself* (Maybe that’s why I haven’t progressed..)

    It’s definitely possible to type children from a pretty young age. Would be extremely unethical and inappropriate to do so in such a public forum setting with a group of adult strangers though, so no.

    Nah way too young. And this forum is obviously inappropriate for somebody that young lol. I remember when I was 13 though being annoyed at some people still treating me like I was six or 7 but when I was 11, I wanted to stay a normal 11 year old and not think about psychology crap. I got into this stuff myself early 20s... I can't imagine being into it younger than about 16 or so.

    There's always the theory that the forum is already populated by 11 year old's. Might explain a lot or very little.
