    Default Are all young children EXFP?

    Or have at some point been EXFP?

    Maybe this is why I can never get along with them....

    They typically have high energy, few inhibitions, and little impulse control. I suppose that might be close.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Types, in general, are a "close" description of the human being anyway.

    If you mean specifically, ExFP, no.

    Take our two sons.

    The first was always quiet, would sit where you left him, just turn his head and look around, was very quiet, didn't mess in things, did what you told him to do, was very studious but not very engaging or disruptive. You could tell he was WATCHING... but he was also very understated and kept to himself.

    The second (an ESFP) was immediately the color "bold yellow" -- as soon as he was born , he was loud, happy, engaging, made eye contact constantly, fussed, made lots of noise, got into anything he could get his hands on, would NEVER stay put if you put him down.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Go hang around a kindergarten. You'll see some kids playing with each other, some bully others, some sit alone. They definitely have their types, but they somehow express them differently than they will when they grow up.

    I don't think so, I've observed some pretty introverted kids. As well as some that were obviously more scheduled and structured, and probably even some that are more logical in their actions, even if they don't understand it at all yet.

    I was always an introvert, playing with other children stressed me out and tired me, I would always look to my parents to save me from situations involving my loud friends. "Why is she so loud? Can we go home yet? Can she leave our house now?"

    Is it more likely to find EXFPs among children than among adults?
