    Default So this type thing....

    What's the word on if we are born as a certain type (or even particular parts of the type) or does it form during early childhood or what?

    If I remember right it's basically a framework you're born with that the rest of you get's built on psychologically. I does, however, take time to fully manifest itself which is why kids under 12 are not easily typed past the three letters that indicate their dominant function.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    We really should put together a list of research that's been done to this end. From what I am aware, at least, Keirsey included information about temperaments and children in his book Please Understand Me II. Don't think he had anything specific about type in there, but I don't believe all 4 letters of someone's type is truly discernable until they're in mid-adolescence.
