    Default "An old soul"

    Explain what you know/think of "old souls." One time one of my aunts told me she thought I was one.

    I've been called an old soul by my mother. Normally it means you possess wisdom beyond your years.

    My Grandmother always called me an old soul. She said I was born old.


    She meant it nice, though.

    My wife (INFJ) has a young heart and an old soul. In any type of interaction she is anything but her own age.

    I think it's probably a description that gets handed to anyone who is reasonably sensible at an age when most other people are, well, not.

    I know an INFP who's had people describe him that way.
    ANFP:
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    Now that I think about it, it would probably be mostly associated with J personality types, and it would probably be an observation of those with a relatively higher level of mental or emotional maturity, as artican suggested.

    I've been described as this, but it's just because people don't know what i'm up to most of the time, and that I choose what risks to take. ^^
    Edit: I've always done some masquerade to shut out people who don't know me well. Most people who doesn't know me think i'm orderly and stuff.
    NEIN!

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
