    Yeah, this pretty much describes what I was like as well.

    I wasn't like this at all. I had a try a lot of things at least.. and indulged in others. I was literally caught stealing at 5. Love that song. Except I kept stealing. Once caught by a Chuck Norris look-a-like too. Bastard took me my Hot Wheels. Damn him.

    Used to sneak out a lot and even broke into places, elementary years. Not just teens. I remember me and some friends took it a bit too seriously, like it was some clandestine operation. We'd get the dark clothes and hoodies and act like ninjas whenever car headlights came around.

    Anyways, as for learning. I don't know. It took a few hard kicks in the ass, much later.

    I understood punishment and reacted accordingly.

    That's why you seem more like an ISFP.

    Not exactly related, but I think I even needed to test "pain" for myself, in order to see if something worked out for me or not. These were rules meant for my own good, but I didn't care. I remember being in kindergarten or something, and the teacher brought a pet bird. She warned us like twice to not poke our fingers in the cage or get too close. Naturally, I had to see for myself. And the bird pecked me. I guess from the outside it looks stupid or dense, but I'm checking things out. It didn't kill me, in the same way breaking other rules or testing other things didn't kill me (although I'm much more educated. or tame.. now than I ever was).

    I didn't intentionally follow or break rules. I followed them when I thought they were reasonable, and I broke them when I thought they weren't. Sure, I feared punishment, but I was stubborn when I was convinced that I was correct. Having said that, I was mostly a pretty easy kid because I went off by myself and read a lot. My mouth got me in trouble more than anything else.

    I'm still that way.

    I was the 'perfect' kid as far as this topic goes. I didn't want to be the center of attention, I didn't want to be viewed in a negative light by adults, so I pretty much followed the rules and was quiet. I grumbled and rolled my eyes and said I didn't want to do something every now and then, when my parents wanted me to do something that I didn't want to do, so I'd definitely complain or at the very least proclaim my dislike for doing X, whereupon my parents would snap at me or something like that, but that was probably the extent of it. And frankly, I think as a child I thought all of my more troublemaking peers were... well... immature and stupid. lol.

    Have to say, though... I can't exactly blame the STP's in this thread who have answered as they have. There's a lot of truth to the fact that a majority of people simply don't follow through with threats, or with consequences, and the STP merely takes advantage of that fact and learns as they go, testing the waters and seeing just how far they can push the limit - and who in their life *will* actually punish, and who will pat them on their head for their 'cuteness' or fold for one reason or another.

    Quiet? Rules?
