    Probably not controversial when thinking of the general population, but controversial to this site. I don't think that the MBTI and cognitive functions, themselves, have any bearing on reality; and have no scientific basis as is.

    You don't often have the luxury of a lot of time to find the perfect way to keep each specific child from putting his or her finger in the light socket. It's not like they move in slow motion. Finger going towards light socket = grab the kid before they electrocute themselves. After that, sure, fine, figure out what the child was trying to learn or whatever and help them meet that need without putting themselves in danger. But for most kids it's not going to be a case of finding the perfect key to convince them not to touch the shiny thing they really want to touch and don't know will hurt them. They just don't understand, because they haven't developed the capacity to understand it yet. Have you ever tried to reason with a toddler?

    Yes, and I instantly regretted it.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    When I was little I reached under a lampshade and touched a light bulb that had been on for a long time. I think that one time was enough for me to learn. My right index finger still has dots instead of ridges on the tip.

    I'm not criticising you as a parent. I believe that you are doing all that is humanly possible considering the circumstances today. It isn't easy today and it sure wasn't easy back then. Different difficulties compared to back then, for sure.

    Again, this is something between Ne/Ni. Ni isn't going to let go of something quickly. So while you might be correct in saying that the standard way of dealing with a toddler is that they do not take in, input the same way as the parent does. For the Ni in me, it doesn't mean, that that was enough. I will always see them as smaller person with less experience. The person might learn through visual experience. Just one example of many possibilities, known or unknown, tried/untried/tested.

    I have reasoned with a toddler, and I was unsuccessful. Given enough time, I believe I could have adapted to the child's needs. Again, how much time, I cannot answer. Might be a very long time.

    I'd wager, enough time for them to grow a reasoning ability.

    I think picky eaters are emotionally stunted somehow and should grow up

    Are you talking about people who don't like peanut butter or white bread, or something else? Do you mean, for instance, people who eat a "paleo" diet?
