Hm. I relate somewhat but I wasn't that bad myself when 10. :pI am starting to wonder if my 10 yo nephew is an ISTP... He's arrogant about his intelligence... Hates social gatherings... Seems rather instructive like a Te person rather than a Se person though... He procrastinates much about homework even though he can do it just in 20-30 minutes... He thinks I am ridiculing him when I am amused by his behavior... Gets angry when I ask him too many questions...
I relate to the feeling ridiculed too easily.
Where I don't totally relate, just to some degree:
I didn't hate social gatherings back then, I enjoyed most things there, I just ignored the refined social aspects. I was happily going around, doing my own thing, I sometimes readily interacted with other kids. I was usually perceived as too forceful/rude/inconsiderate/blahblah even though I didn't usually have bad intentions. However I didn't have any self-awareness or awareness of how I was being seen. When I gained some awareness that's what led me to dislike some of the social shit.
I did take it for granted that I was the smartest but I was still willing to talk to anyone, girls with low IQ etc. Though of course I saw some interactions as more quality (because of the other party being special/interesting).
I was sometimes being instructive but not that much. Just sometimes. E.g. I'm told in kindergarten I didn't speak for a long time. Then when I finally did speak, the first sentence that came out of my mouth was me telling some other kid "don't do that! not allowed". Something like that.
Yep procrastinated a bit though nowhere nearly as bad as later. I was more organized at that age, at the age of 10 I wasn't too bad yet. It didn't help though that when I came home after the very first day at school, I saw how easily and fast the homework was done. I was happily sitting down to do it then I was disappointed and thought to myself, "hey if this was all, it can be put off and done later". I was 7 years old
I never minded "too many questions". Worst that can happen is I won't answer all of them. So I don't relate to that one.
I dunno, overall I'm getting the impression that your nephew is more extreme in some T-ish things than me.
My mother is ESFJ or Se-dom playing the mother role. My father INTx. I don't think there's a general pattern readily discerned about personalities of parents vs kids. I can tell you in my case I always saw myself as a hybrid of my mother and father, with more of my mother's stuff in me when younger, some stuff from my father manifesting more later. Whatever this meansMy elder brother is ISFP I guess and his wife an ESTJ...any thoughts in relation to your childhood?
Btw did you see the post #26 about the argument on extraversion vs introversion? Not convincing for you then? (Argument for extraversion)
