    Default NTs, do you like babies?

    Just curious.
    Other types can answer and share their experiences as well.

    I don't know if "like" is the word. I find them fun to watch for a bit, and they are a necessary stage in raising kids, but with my own kids, the older they got, the better things became. I liked the 3-6 years old stage better than the baby stage, because they become old enough to talk and not totally as dependent, and more remarkably you can see them learning something new each day. That's pretty amazing to see. And of course, then they become even older and eventually you can seen advanced reasoning and perception take hold and you start to catch more and more sight of the people they are becoming.

    Kind of a long answer, but the deal is that the "baby" is the stage I preferred the least. It's all about total care, intense schedules (a three-hour sleep/play/eat cycle), etc.

    Not much. They can be momentarily cute, but otherwise are messy, noisy, demanding, and don't provide much substantive interaction.

    Babies are ugly and annoying. I don't see why anyone thinks they're cute.

    I assume you're talking about baby humans?

    I am completely resistant to their charms.

    yus. although i've only rented rather than owned, and i'm sure they're easier to like when you're not stuck with the heavy responsibility of pure dependence (plus then you're sleep deprived, and everything is harder then).

    I've never been comfortable around babies for some reason. Even as a little girl I didn't like baby dolls, and I've always avoided holding one. That probably sounds terrible, but it's true.

    the only way i can enjoy or even tolerate other people's kids is through the enjoyment of seen my boy when his with them... in general i am not a fan of other people's kids, not to mention other people's babies.

    Yes but not until I had my own.
    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.

    They are pretty cute but they cry a lot and the poop stinks.
