    I think the fates are telling us to swap types.

    Hm... IFP is mostly there, but not quite.

    Is it really necessary to split them based on what the first function is supposed to be? Saying you can't determine most kid's second function til 13 is complete bunk, I've been strongly INP ever since I can remember. My brother was obviously EXTP since he was young too. And based on what I've read from others, most people don't have too much trouble determining types of young kids (or if they do have problems, it's not necessarily caused by confusion over second function). Not sure why profiles specifically for kids are needed either.

    I looked over the description a couple times and it seems to describe me a little bit but

    - I've always been horrible at keeping any sort of routine. I'd go to bed at either 6 in the morning or 9 at night depending on my mood.

    - I've never been very aware of bodily cues, especially as a child. I'd never notice I was tired until I was ready to pass out, I'd always eat until I had a tummy ache, never noticed if I was too cold, etc... I generally had no sense of moderation, and neither of my parents were very structured either so I was sorta all over the place :P

    - I was generally pretty creative (I think). I was constantly making up stories, drawing pictures, figuring out new ways to do things (like making a pulley on a two-story play house so I could get heavy things up without having to climb the ladder with something in my hands). I was never much for team sports; Er, until I was about 11, I used to tell adults that "I do not play well with others". Actually, I used to hide in trees to get away from people ._. I also had lots of imaginary friends... who I sometimes still talk to...

    "Serious" would not be one of the first words I would use to describe myself as a child. There were many times when I was far more playful and goofy than most other kids. Nor was I especially adult for my age. And it was very clear from an early age that I had a preference for both Intuition and Feeling. My preference for Feeling has gotten less clear as I've aged, not more clear. The rest of it is largely true but so generic that I think far more people than INJs would relate to it.

    Now that I've skimmed through the other descriptions, I think IFP describes me about equally well as a child, and EFJ is not too far off either. And I'm as sure of my type as it's humanly possible to be. I think it's a case in point of why you should avoid using these types of profiles to choose your type.

    ISJ was decent (except for the "conservative and traditional" part--ew). Though it's a little too serious. :p I could be very rambunctious and annoying and goofy when I was with friends... but at school or around people I didn't know, I was a pure angel, very polite and respecting and shy. Also I never really did my homework and had bad grades until high school when I became a perfectionist. And I have always been terrible with money. But I was definitely cautious, reserved, and very easily affected by even minor changes. They upset me a lot. I was very strongly Si (still am). I was also very unorganized back then until I got a bit older. Overall, okay description though. The Learning Style, especially, was pretty accurate for me.
