It's just that I've really never heard that before, about personalities "cementing" in adolescence. Do you have a reference? For all I know, you could be making that up off of the top of your head.

Like I've mentioned several times before, the claim from both my mother and several other family members/friends is that I exhibited consistently ENTJ-like behavior until around age 11-12.
Dang it, I remember reading it somwhere, and I distinctly remember other people saying similar things here. Anyone know of a source to what Im saying?
