    It seems like as a society Se perception is something we're supposed to grow out of.

    Probably because Se tends to be living-in-the-moment and embracing/optimizing/appreciating events as they occur. Can conflict with ability to look at things in the big picture, and formulate goals and larger plans for ones life. As a child, being a child, is rather living in the moment -- the child has less of a grasp of Time and mortality, thus isn't as consumed by long-term anything. And as an adult, according to general cultural/societal norms, one should be planning for ones future, being 'responsible', etc...which tends to imply that Se should be pushed down.

    As one grows older, one has more past - more years behind - than he might have ahead. More memories piling on, more experience, thus Si would tend to kick in and have more of a potential influence.

    I'd ban your dishonest ass for 30 days, just for lying about it.

    Yeah, but Jaguar wouldn't do something like that. He's too blunt and honest. Sometimes too much so for his own good.

    Childishness is immaturity and a preoccupation with the self.

    Good question. Basically, Se deals with savoring the moment, having fun, and acting immediately. Together, all of these traits are definitely more youthful traits (they are more common in young people than they are in old people). Young people seem, in general, to be more fun-loving and in-the-present.

    Si has to do more with oldness, because of simply what it is. Si has a lot to do with looking back at the past for reference. If one is very young, they don't have much to look back to. Older people have a lot to look back on and reference, simply because of their old age, and Si rewards experience in a significant way.

    Old people are supposed to be more work-oriented than children. Si is more common with those who plan things and who are meticulous and organized, whereas Se, as mentioned earlier, has to do more with enjoying the present moment, something which, I would say, children do better than old people.

    Is it because responsibility, schedules, and all that which comes with adulthood, hinders the ability to experience anything and everything as it comes?
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
