    I have a three year old niece that’s like a daughter to me and I’m trying to type her (if that’s even possible at this age). I have read that children rely on their dominant function a lot more than adults so maybe it is actually easier then?

    She’s very curious, hands on, touches everything, licks everything, doesn't listen sometimes, charming, loves to be adored but only by her “inner circle” haha, acts like a cute infant to me but I think because she knows I always call her cute and smile at her, isn’t very open to many other people though, and is learning to play well with others but a few times, she has told kids that tried to play with her to go away and she doesn’t like them (oh boy). Her favorite toys are LEGO’s and those magnetic LEGO things, she loves to build things with them. She also enjoys watching random things on YouTube (kid friendly of course) and playing games that her older sister plays (Roblox, Meep City, etc). She has this insane need to use precise words, names, and order of where things should go based on her own personal logic or routine. She would always correct people when they use the wrong word or place things in the wrong place.

    Being an SJ parental figure, I do often remind her of the rules (mostly for cleanliness) but she tries to sneak out of them, but follows some of them if she wants to. Other than that, I try to let her be who she is and recognize her need for freedom and independence.

    It's not recommended to 'type' children at such a young age, as they're going through normal developmental stages/phases (e.g toddler tantrums/defiance, separation anxiety etc) which would influence their behaviour at that age and perhaps cloud their actual relationship. Once a child is older (I think ages 5-7?) then their personality might become more apparent, perhaps just through 2 or three functions, as it's said that some don't manifest till later.

    That said, I've tried to type my kids through the children's personality test on personality page com. It's recommended for older children, really, but can give you an idea. I did the test when they were about 3-4 and it gave me a result which I think still is accurate today, looking at their personalities now. It's based on the parent's self report of their child's behaviour.

    I tried to only think of scenarios where she's not affected by her mood and physical well being to avoid traits/behaviors that most result from these non-personality related things. When she throws a tantrum, she's quite unreasonable and loud (as most tantrum throwers are), but I only brought up the times when she is in her normal, content, healthy mode. With that being said, I do understand that it might be too young to type her but I mainly made this thread out of curiosity and for fun. Do you have any guesses to her type (doesn't have to be correct)?

    Ok. Well, just for fun 🙂, I might guess Esf/tp?

    Maybe try the personality page kids' test too, I'd be interested to see what type you get.

    Interesting. I guessed ISTP for her, mainly because I was reading descriptions online and most related her to a Ti dom child. I tried the test and it gave the result ETJ. I noticed many questions had to do with school though and she’s not yet at school age, so the test is probably better for when she’s a bit older. Thanks for the link!

    Oh, that's interesting. I can see how you would think Istp for her, reading your description over. I overlooked the part about her not being open to others etc, which could suggest a more introverted personality...although sometimes children don't like playing with others either, at that age, and can be selfish regarding toys etc.. Interesting that you got E*tj. Should be cool to see how her personality pans out as she gets older.

    May I suggest this book? I have it and it's a great read, and it's on sale on Amazon atm:

    Nurture by Nature

    To me, your baby niece sounds like an extrovert. I/E should be the easiest part to figure out with a young child, and the book gives some hints about that as well as what can be figured out at different ages. Introverted children are most often more reserved, especially around peers or in the face of new experiences.
